144. Have you Felt Lonely or Left Out?

Out of the Ordinary 143

Today's Out of the Ordinary Book:

Back Roads to Belonging: Unexpected Paths to Finding Your Place and Your People,
written and read by Kristen Strong.

Visiting Author, Kristen Strong, shares a reading from her latest book!
Feel free to visit Kristen online here for more on her books and her new devotional book coming out in October.

Key Conversation Points:

  • Have you struggled to fit in? Wondering if you belong anywhere? Lots of changes have come to you this year and you need to find a new community?
  • Kristen, the military wife with homes in ever changing zip codes, gives the experience and grace to lead us down the back road of finding belonging.  It's not the popular busy path and it's not the unimportant and unworthy path either.
  • Lisa-Jo explains, "Kristen has been the voice inside every woman’s head at some time or another when we have doubted where we belong in the world, sometimes paralyzed by the fear of fitting in, and need a new map for figuring out our place in the world."
  • Kristen shares legit hope that's not sugar coated with 3 easy steps to friendship.  Her book is a breaktaking dose of her real and honest journey.
