Relatable and encouraging. I enjoyed her writing style, which discusses her heart without being overrun with emotional appeals.

It’s very quick to read, and I appreciated how at one point she emphasized something along the lines that it’s not a competition, and just because something would be no big deal to someone else doesn’t mean it’s not a big deal to you – acknowledge what you’re experiencing.

I also really liked how she discussed change can still be difficult, even when it’s something welcome and hoped for. (Say, a new baby or great new job). I tend to expect myself to get back to normal immediately and need to remember to give myself grace when things have changed, especially when those changes were positives.

Recommended if it sounds appealing to you. It’s not a must read, but it’s worthwhile and I’m glad I read it.

Publisher’s Description:
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.
