Book Review - Girl Meets Change by Kristen Strong
My latest book review is a nonfiction, Christian motivational book called Girl Meets Change, by Kristen Strong. As the title suggests, this book is to help you deal with change. Strong uses Biblical and personal stories throughout the text to illustrate how change can turn our world upside-down, but also how we can rely on God to shape us through the changes. This book is an easy read. It is a lot like talking with a good friend. The writing flows very well, as Strong incorporates her own stories with those of friends and Biblical figures to get her points across. This book deals with big, big changes, like cancer and divorce, but it also doesn't minimize how much small change can affect our lives. Strong pulls verses from scripture to bolster her encouragement that we can get through all things with God's help. There is a nice appendix that lists Bible verses to focus on when change threatens to overwhelm you. Overall, this book is a very uplifting look at dealing with the many changes life brings us, whether we want them or not.
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my review, but all opinions are my own.
