Whether chosen and celebrated--like going off to college or
welcoming your first baby--or unexpected and anxiety-inducing--like
losing a job or grappling with a broken trust--all change brings
stress. Kristen Strong knows about change--especially the kind you
didn't choose or expect. What she's fought hard to learn over the
years is that change is not something to be feared but something to
be received as a blessing from a God who, more often than not,
works through change, not in spite of it. Strong has learned to see
change not as a grievance but as a grace.
In this hope-filled book, she shows women how when we follow God's will, we receive blessings of contentment, purpose, and renewed strength. She encourages women to see change not as the end of their story but as the scenery for this part of life's journey. And she offers practical advice for coping with change in every part of life. Anyone who has struggled to adjust to life's transitions will welcome this warm and personal perspective.
"Change is inevitable, but thriving through it is optional. . .
. Every woman needs this inspiring and insightful
message."--Holley Gerth, Wall Street Journal

"Kristen doesn't minimize the pain, fear, or worry that comes with change. Like the dear friend that she is, she simply sits in the midst of it with you until you are ready to see the good that God had always planned for you. This book is a tender companion."--Lisa-Jo Baker, author of Surprised by Motherhood and community manager for (in)courage
