Product Description

In Girl Meets Change, author Kristen Strong 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.

Noteworthy: This author is one of a special group of women who writes for (in)courage, the popular online friendship community. Every day they take turns pulling up a chair to share their stories of what Jesus looks like in their every day, gloriously ordinary, and often messy lives.

If you read the (in)courage blog online, then you'll be sure to enjoy this title.

    Change. Does that word make your pulse run a bit faster, or perhaps cause you to break out in a cold sweat? Change can mean leaving behind neighborhoods, and homes you love. Or saying good-bye to a wonderful job, and co-workers that are more like family.

    The author, Kristen Strong, didn't experience much change until she was a young adult. She grew up in a small town in Oklahoma, where she enjoyed an idyllic childhood. Many of the residents were related to her, and her family had lived in the same area for years. Kristen didn't have to learn how to make friends because she was surrounded by cousins that were her built-in playmates. But after marrying her college sweetheart, she experienced change in a big way.

    Her husband, David, was a military man, and she suddenly found herself propelled into a life unlike anything she had ever experienced before--one of constant change. While adjusting to married life, she also had to get used to living in a new place, along with the lack of family, and life-long friends surrounding her.

    Kristen had to learn how to get around a new city, make new friends and find a new church family. At the same time, David, was often deployed for long periods, so she was doing this all alone. Just when she was feeling like she was finding a niche in a community, her husband would get a new assignment. That meant moving, and starting all those things over, along with saying goodbye. Again.

    But I really don't want to change....

    Most of us don't like change, in fact, we fight against it. The author filled this book full of real-life examples of how she, along with a number of other women, faced changes of all sorts in their lives. Some changes the women knew were coming, and some were traumatic events that blindsided them. In all these situations, the women have found ways to cope, and sometimes to thrive. Kristen Strong tells us their stories.

    By the end of this easy-to-read book, you still might not like change. However, you will be equipped with useful suggestions that can give you the confidence to make it more bearable. Perhaps even allowing you, like those in this book, to find blessings in unwanted change. I highly recommend this 5-star book to anyone who will be, or has, faced changes in their life.

    The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of Girl Meets Change through Revell Publishing for the purpose of review. All opinions expressed are my own, and I was not required, or influenced, to give anything but an honest appraisal. Despite my receiving the book free, it has not influenced my judgment.

    All of us have changes that occur throughout our lives. Some are happy and expected ones, like the birth of my new grandchild, some are unexpected, like a doctor's diagnosis or a pop test. Some of the changes can leave us cringing with fear. Facing each of these can be helped along when we allow God to guide us through all of the changes. This book leads a person along, helping them to calm down and think of God.

    This book would be helpful to anyone at anytime so when those changes occur the reaction will be a natural one.

    I was given this book by Revell Publishing in exchange for my honest review.

    Change happens to all of us. Sometimes it's anticipated and celebrated, such as having a baby or getting married. Other times, it isn't something we planned for or wanted, such as a car accident or death. But our attitude when the change happens is what dictates how we will feel during and after that change. The author knows all about change and has written a heart felt book about how to deal gracefully with change as it comes. She talks about how to draw from your faith to handle the things that might not have turned out how you had planned.

    I enjoyed reading this book. It was well written and interesting. The flow of the book felt like I was having a chat with the author. She incorporated personal stories to bring out her points. Plenty of scripture and biblical references made this a strong, faith-filled book. Since the author struggles with change, her writing gives the feel of comradery and encouragement. While the book is geared towards women, I think men might enjoy reading it as well.

    I received this book free of charge from Revell Reads in exchange for my honest review.

    For me, it was a case of the right book at the right time when Girl Meets Change by Kristen Strong showed up in my mailbox. I am walking through a season of boys coming and boys going; setting the table each night with only four plates . . . or hearing that we may possibly need nine plates; adjusting to my mothers presence in our home and then adjusting to her absence after her transition to the nursing home.

    Ive always thought that I was a flexible person, and if I had been asked (and I wasnt), I would have said that change is a good thing healthy, invigorating. I realize, of course, now that I was thinking of change rather narrowly:

    1. Change that is my idea;

    2. Change that produces a good outcome as I would define it.

    Kristen offers a more helpful definition:

    Change is leaving the comforts of what is to embrace the potential of what will be.

    She does not offer pat answers or an easy fix. Nor does she assert that adjustment to change is just something we need to get over. Instead Girl Meets Change is about her own journey of letting go of white-knuckle control of her circumstances and trusting in the all-knowing, sovereign God who orchestrates her life sometimes with harmonies that were strange to her ears.

    She has woven inspirational journeys from her friends lives along with deft renderings of the inspired accounts of people like Joseph, Esther, and Naomi who opened their hearts to Gods detours and changed the course of history.

    If Im going to have a change of heart about change, I need to make my home in the rock-solid truth of Scripture that never changes.

    Faith, friends and fearlessness in conquering change...

    SUMMARY:

    Set-up in three sections for dealing with change (acknowledge, accept, adapt), author Kristen Strong shares strategies for dealing with change. Be it life-changing, situation-changing, event-changing or heart-changing, Girl Meets Change helps with the mind-numbing, hand-wringing, heart-leaping feelings associated with it. With girlfriend advice, plenty of Scripture and prayers, personal stories and even a bit of attitude adjustments, Kristen Strong cheers you on to victory

    A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:

    Ugh! Change can be so hard, especially more so as we grow older. Comforting, familiar, quietand then change happens, throwing all we know into turmoil. Granted some change is initiated but the random change can throw us for a loop. I appreciated the personal experience with which this author wrote as well as the ideas presented. Not easy but definitely a means of coping, Girl Meets Change encourages faith, friendships and fearlessness in dealing with change. As a popular blogger and writer, Kristen Strong exemplifies her survival of change beautifully.

    RATING:

    4.5 (out of 5) pennies
