Back Cover: Girl Meets Change
Whether chosen or unexpected, all change brings stress. Kristen Strong knows about change—especially the kind you didn’t choose. Over the years, she’s fought hard to learn an important truth: change is not something to be feared but something to be received as a blessing from a God who works through it, not in spite of it.
In this hope-filled book, Kristen invites you to see all the ways you are loved and cared for in the midst of change. She walks alongside you as a friend, gently ushering you toward a new view of change, one that meets you at the crossroads of your own sense of anxiety and God’s sense of purpose. With practical advice for coping in every part of life, she draws from her own experiences, the stories of others, and stories from Scripture to help you find contentment, purpose, and renewed strength.
Book Review: Girl Meets Change
My husband and me are no strangers to change. The details of all our struggles are enough for another post. Needless to say, we know change and I feel like I’ve become well adjusted to change over the course of my life, but I’m always eager to learn better ways to cope with change. How about you?
Girl Meets Change was awesome! Kristen Strong puts a large dose of encouragement in this wonderful book about how to cope with the changes that are sure to come our way. This book is so tenderly honest. I love that she gives us the permission we crave, to feel what we feel as life throws its punches at us. She reminds us that while we can count on change, what will keep us steady is putting our trust in the only source that will never change, our God and His precious Son, Jesus. This book is filled with stories that will inspire you to not only deal with your seasons of change, but to thrive during them. Girl Meets Change is inspiring and gives wonderful insight into the impact that change has on our lives and the purpose that God may allow the changes to occur, even the really painful ones.
I’d recommend Girl Meets Change for anyone that longs to find peace in the midst of the chaos that change can bring to our lives. This book will help you think of change in such a new way that you can actually learn to embrace it when it comes. What?! I know, but it’s true. This has been one of my favorite books of 2015 and I think it was the perfect book to read as we are ending 2015 and entering into the wonderful new year of 2016 and I highly recommend this book to others, because we all faces tough changes at some point in our life, or for me, in my week. 🙂

…sometimes God allows change in our lives so we can have his presence like never before. So perhaps the first step in make room for unwanted change is acknowledging that it’s in our life because he wants to be in our life more. And if this is true, then there is indeed purpose in the difficulty and pain change brings.
