Girl Meet Change by Kristen Strong - REVIEWED

About the Book:
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.

My Thoughts:
Grab your suitcase, girls.  God thinks too much of us to let us settle.  Let’s get ready to roll.”  (p. 86)

This doesn’t sound like a statement made by someone who struggles with change, does it?  Well, it is.  Kristen Strong has allowed God to work in her life and transform her in such a way that she can write amazing truths about the change God allows into each of our lives – some expected, some very unexpected – and what He can accomplish in us and through us as we learn what He has for us through the change process.  Girl Meets Change reflects the truth of God’s Word into every area of change imaginable!

This book has been another God-appointment for me, for it has come into my life at a point of great change.  Relationships, jobs, places to live, children grown and moving on….so much change has happened in the past four years of my life that I don’t even recognize it any more!  And then I begin to read this book, and my perspective shifts, and I begin to see God’s fingerprints all over the place!! Then, I begin to look hopefully toward the future, assured that the next change – and believe me, more are on the way – will bring God’s best for me!  I cannot begin to tell you the hope that this book has birthed in my heart!!

I absolutely love all of the Scripture at the end!  A quick reference to God’s promises and the ways He uses change to transform our lives!  Kristen…I believe God ordained even your surname – Strong – to be a reflection of what He has done in your life!! Thank you for sharing from your abundance with those of us coming through our own seasons of change!! Bless you!!!

There are not words enough to recommend this to you!! GO!! Buy a copy TODAY!! It is so incredibly encouraging!
