20 Quotes to Encourage Friendships During COVID-19

Besties. BFF’s. Life-long friends.

Friend is such a wonderful and endearing term.

The good Lord created us as relational beings, first with Him, then with others. So it makes sense to not only understand the importance of friends in our lives, but to also celebrate friendship.

But what does true friendship look like? How does it play a practical role in our lives?

How do we keep our friendships vibrant during this present pandemic? How do we stay engaged?

Because things have changed during COVID-19. Such as those intimate, fun and face-to-face outings, chats, lunch dates, meetings at our favorite coffee shop, and a whole list of friend-things most of us are missing these days.

Or, we show up sporting a face mask and wonder if our get-togethers will ever look normal again.

So I put together a list of some pretty amazing quotes on friendship. While the way we spend time with friends may look different right now, the heart of friendship remains the same and keeps us connected.

As you read through these great quotes, think about creative ways to reach out to friends. Like texts, emails, calls, FaceTime, the Marco Polo App, cards, record an audio message to send by text (even a prayer), use the Snap Chat App to send a fun photo or video, or drop off their favorite sweet or a gift (if they live nearby) and leave on the porch or at door giving them the heads up.
