My thoughts: 5 stars out of 5
Susan Miller shares her testimony on moving, providing Biblical view on hope and God’s presence through the transition times. She moved more than dozen times, and knows the feeling of lost identity that threatened her to be destroyed. Yet there is hope on the journey path. Security and contentment are possible again to be bought up in our lives.
The book is divided into three parts: let go, start over, and move forward, where Susan gives her insights and experiences on how to get your life and your identity back after the move. She provides tips and treats to try in our lives.
My favorite part is about creating a new nest in a start over section. Start by letting go in order to receive healing in your soul and emotions, then chose to invite love, joy, peace, patience, kindness to be shown through everyday life. Make your home a sanctuary; remember, it’s an extension of you.
