It will bring healing to emotional wounds and help you bind them up. It will offer you a new chance at a life you never thought you could possibly experience. It will let you know you are not alone, that there is someone else who can relate to how you feel, someone who has been where you are and can show you the way to finding the happiness you seek.
Come along side Kristen as she takes you on “Unexpected Paths to Finding Your Place and Your People”.
This is a great book that offers many personal experiences, testimonies, and resources that will help those seeking to belong. It also offers the chance for you to become a “Belong Maker”, one who helps others find the way to belonging. Plus, there are helpful resources and affirming scriptures too.
I enjoyed reading this book immensely as I was one of those who always felt I didn’t belong. I grew up feeling I was a misfit and many times felt invisible. So, this book really touched my heart and helped heal some of those old wounds and showed me ways I can now become a “Belong Maker” to help others I meet now, who might feel the same, to find the path to belonging.
I received this book free from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing, in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to give a favorable review, just an honest one, and in honesty I do recommend this book highly. All thoughts on this book are my own. In my honest opinion it could be a life changer for many who read it.
