Special Announcement

We're excited to let everyone know our book ChainMeet to Inspire Forward: Simple Steps to Boost Your Self-Confidence, Elevate Friendships, and Make a Positive Impact in the World has launched! Our RockFriends in Chapter 10 of the paperback also want you to know they grew up and became colorful! So you can get them here, too.

To celebrate with us, grab your FREE collection of 12 RF Cards to honor your VFs!

I had no idea that my meal with the author of this book would have such an impact! Sue and her husband open their home for our monthly Lifegroup. I wanted to honor her and thank her for her constant giving and encouragement to me. Never underestimate the power of great fullness and what it can do!

Friendship A True Gift

I hope everyone under 40 reads this book to know what real, live, one-to-one communication was like among friends before the advent of computers, cell phones, and social media. What a simple concept -- take a valued friend out to lunch or coffee, really listen, and celebrate the valued friendship -- then keep passing it forward. Check out Sue Welch's Chainmeet website, too!

A must read for those seeking to add value to real friendships

Many of us may not outwardly admit it, but we struggle at times with bouts of anxiety, loneliness, and depression. We long for a sense of belonging, being heard, and wanting to feel accepted and valued for who we are without judgment.

Exacerbating the problem is that we think we are more connected than ever through digital devices, social media, and virtual reality, but in real reality, we are feeling lonelier and more disconnected than ever.

We want to see and know we make a difference in this world and also enjoy some recognition for it, but we’re not sure how to do it in a way that’s meaningful for us as individuals.


There is hope with ChainMeet!

We offer a super-simple strategy for those of you who want to make a positive difference in your world and in the world around you, so you will feel confident and motivated to link friendship forward and inspire others.

Be friendtentional with your ChainMeets, simply one friend at a time, and you will not only show them you appreciate them and make an impact on their lives, you also impact your own life, your own personal sense of value and self-worth.

And it will feel invigorating when you see and know the difference you are making. My hope is that YOU will feel this inspiration and empowerment by becoming an essential part of the ChainMeet Movement.

In this diagram, you can see the progression of Chains that start with YOUR individual ChainMeets. These two Chains have ultimately impacted 30 people! How awesome is that?

We aspire to create value for you by offering 7 Life-Igniters

manifested in action through ChainMeets.

ChainMeet offers you…

A unique way to simply give of yourself, inspiring forward, as you invest in a friendship, realizing that you as a RealFriend can make all the difference in a friend’s life. It’s being friendtentional, just one friend at a time.

To be your real self with a friend since real life is real, genuine, in the moment, with all the bumps and bruises but without facade.

To get up off the sidelines and engage to make an impact. Ignite each other as you encourage and strengthen each other. Be friendspirational!

We are all in the same bucket of life. Do life together because we are in this together. We all have common challenges, struggles, vulnerabilities, weaknesses, and strengths. And… we all want to be acknowledged and accepted for who we are.

That you can be confident to be your real self, to be what only you can be for a friend

In feeling energized and motivated to move forward, really knowing that you matter to your friends and that you can make a positive impact in their lives!

In finding meaning and satisfaction when you see the impact you make, and in experiencing the rewards of RealConnection friendship.

4 Steps to Start a ChainMeet

Be friendtentional: send a ChainMeet invite to a VF* to hang out together one-on-one, face-to-face, just the two of you. Even the invitation will brighten her day and set the stage for impact!

*VF = ValuedFriend



Meet at a coffee shop, pizza café, a pub, or a pastry shop, wherever – this is where you get to be creative. Treat her to a favorite coffee, pizza, after-dinner drink, a donut or two, again whatever you choose; this makes it affordable. Then sweeten the treat by honoring her with your full focus and attention.

Enjoy the treat and your time together as you create an impactful experience - honor your friend with meaningful interaction, encouragement and validation. Let him share! And spur him on with your affirmation and your belief in him. Then enjoy the rewards of Reciprocity – you BOTH will feel enhanced sense of value and self-worth!

Tell your friend about ChainMeet. Snap a photo of the two of you enjoying your ChainMeet and share it on your ChainMeet Newsfeed. Imagine how he will feel when you publicly demonstrate your appreciation for him! You can send him an invitation to sign up, too. Ask him if he would like to join you on the journey toward making a difference in the world around us; encourage him to inspire forward with another ChainMeet with another VF, keeping the Chain going of linking friendship forward. Then…

REPEAT it all again - invite another VF to a ChainMeet, and another…. That’s changing the world around you, simply one friend at a time!
