Made For People

Welcome to a life of being truly known by your friends.


Loneliness has become a cultural epidemic, affecting the health and happiness of millions. Busyness, fear of

vulnerability, and past pain often stop us from developing the deep friendships we long for. But it’s not

supposed to be this way. You were made for people.


Isolation may be a rising norm of modern life, but you don’t have to let it be the story of your life. Find the

joy and belonging you were made for as Made for People inspires you to practice the art and habit of life-

giving friendships.



Justin Whitmel Earley is a lawyer, author and speaker from Richmond, VA.


He graduated from the University of Virginia with a degree in English Literature before spending four years in Shanghai, China, as a missionary.

His book, The Common Rule – Habits of Purpose for an Age of Distraction, was published with InterVarsity Press in 2019. He frequently speaks at businesses and legal events on habits, technology and mental health; and at churches and conferences on habits, spiritual formation and parenting.
