The Well: The Art of Drawing Out Authentic Conversation


Does your spouse refuse to hear? Do your children stare without comprehending? Does your parent or boss habitually raise objections to your good ideas? 


Oh, the frustration! Conversations often break down instead of breaking through.


She changed from a woman alone to a woman of influence. Her faith transformed a whole community. How did she do it? In The Well, Cathy Krafve points out 40 strategies Jesus used to prompt authentic conversation—by analyzing just one conversation with the woman at the well.


These strategies will help you:

  • Initiate simple communication principles to transform all your conversations. Go from magical thinking to miraculous results in a matter of a few biblical truths.
  • Invigorate your closest relationships with terrific communication. Watch the ripple effect as your conversations spread truth and joy throughout all your relationships.
  • Inspire others through authentic conversations. Enjoy the intimate companionship our hearts all crave.

Are you ready to foster tender, effective conversations with everyone around you? Don’t miss your chance to transform all your relationships!

My Thoughts


This was an interesting book based on the art of conversation and making it deeper by looking at Scripture and focusing on the story of the woman at the well. It definitely is a way to open up and engage better in conversation with those around us. I know myself being an extreme introvert this is something that takes me a while in a room. I am however very observant and know when to be open to have conversations with people but this book will help those that just need a bit more help maybe softening the tones of conversations or perhaps have more meaningful conversations rather than surface ones. 

If you enjoy non-fiction books that will aid in your walk with the Lord while helping you succeed in an area of your life then I recommend this one. 

My Rating: 3 Stars/Liked it

I received a copy of this book through Celebrate Lit. I was not required to post a positive review. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.

More from Cathy


From Isolated to Influence

 

“He’s not listening,” Cathy fumed, as the civic leader towered over her. She went home and “plopped open” her Bible.

 

There’s got to be something here about people who don’t listen. She found over 40 ways Jesus communicated.

 

Plus, she gained new respect for one of the most fascinating women in scripture. Jesus, the Master Communicator, engaged the woman at the well in just one conversation. She immediately zipped from lonely to leadership. We can, too!

 

Queen of Fun and Coffee Cup Philosopher, Cathy Krafve delivers creativity and encouragement on every page of The Well: The Art of Drawing Out Authentic Conversations.

 

Does your child stare back with dull eyes? A spouse who refuses to hear? A parent or boss who habitually raises objections? Oh, the frustration!

 

Conversations often break down instead of breaking through.

 

The Well is perfect for your book club, Bible Study, or Sunday school class. Each chapter ends with thought-provoking questions, personal applications, and prayer.

 

Cathy puts a snappy spin on deeply spiritual truths with journalistic fervor and a knack for laughter and story-telling. A self-described “social dork,” her kryptonite is a bag of potato chips. Yep, a whole bag. Don’t judge!

 

Host of Fireside Talk Radio, her weekly blogs and podcasts reach over 3 million people annually.  She is also author of Marriage Conversations: From Co-existing to Cherished.

 

How do we go from isolated to influence? She understands good communication tools can change everything! Companionship begins with authentic conversations. Order two copies today; one for yourself and one to give to a friend!
