Girl Meets Change By Kristen Strong

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.

Kristen Strong is a popular blogger at Chasing Blue Skies ( and DaySpring's (in)courage, as well as a writer whose work has appeared in MOMSense and Family Fun magazines. She and her husband, David, have three children. Together this military family has zig-zagged across the country (and one ocean!) several times, and they currently live in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

I for one do NOT like change at all good, bad. or in different. So this book was right up my alley.
When you are going through change which we all do from time to time this is a very encouraging book to have by your side to dive into.  Strong has great scriptures and some very comforting prayers in each chapter. Reading this ok it's almost like Strong is sitting next to you giving you great advice and mentoring you long you path to the next chapter in your life.
This would make a fantastic gift for a friend or family member going through some changes in their life.
I gave this book 5 stars and I HIGHLY recommend it.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.
