Well, it about killed me to finish this thing, but I suppose all of us trying to finish something during a pandemic can say that.
Pandemic aside, I had a lot of changes going on at the time of writing–mountainous changes that filled me with anxiety. Mountainous changes that made many of my previous changes suddenly seem less consequential.
Mountainous changes that brought “next level” anxiety, fear, frustration, pain, anger, and anxiety (did I already say that?!?) to the center of my life.
All the hope I wrote about in this book I desperately clung to like my life depended on it.
In the end, while writing this devotional book about killed me, it helped heal me all the more. During that time, God continually revealed a more hopeful view of hard, gritty change to me, and I believe this book will reveal His heart and hope to you during your own difficult change, too.
To that end, I present to you When Change Finds You: 31 Assurances to Settle Your Heart When Life Stirs You Up.
What When Change Finds You gives you:
- Biblical truth relayed and reflected through thoughtful, humorous stories. (I brought some sass to this one!)
- Accompanying prayers to recite.
- A natural progression from acknowledging the difficult change to abiding well through it.
AND beautiful features of the book include:
- Moving photography that adds an additional dimension in which to internalize the book’s message. Yes! This devotional has pictures!
- Quotes for encouragement.
- Hardcover design with inside color.
When Change Finds You is inspirational and practical as it helps us think and feel differently about change on the inside so we can live and love differently on the outside.
And, it’ll look mighty purdy on your end table or nightstand!
Some of you may know I wrote a trade book on change in 2015 Girl Meets Change. If you read that one, let me assure you this devotional isn’t that book reformatted. No ma’am! While there are a few familiar takeaways, the stories surrounding them and the vast majority of the material inside are brand spankin’ new.
If the difficult change in your life triggers all kinds of anxiety, frustration, pain, and anger in you as it does me, then I wrote this for you. I wrote it to give you deep, heart-settling hope during your own difficult change.
