Format: Paperback
This is a self-help book with a Christian slant on how to navigate transitions well – and it is SO good. Although this is written primarily for Christian workers who are moving abroad (or back home after time abroad), I would want to make this gem of a book required reading for anyone who is moving job and home, because so many of the principles are universal. It could have been titled “Finishing Well”, because it focuses primarily on often-neglected endings rather than beginnings, and really helps with navigating those stressful months as you prepare to leave for somewhere new. I found the chapters on grief and working through the messy emotions especially helpful, but it was all really good stuff. There’s a real need for this kind of book, and I’ve never read anything that covers this topic so well. Amy Young is a brilliant and engaging Bible teacher, a highly-qualified counsellor, a wonderful writer, and has spent twenty years working abroad, so she is the perfect person to write this book. My advice? Get it before you move, so that you have time to absorb the good advice. This is one I will be gushing about and recommending to anyone who’s thinking of moving house or job and wants to finish well.

Just love this book. So useful for anyone in transition. Amy is real. She's lived it. As someone who's moved countries many times, I identify with so many of her stories, especially the 'raptured apartment' one. We are moving country again in 5 weeks time, and this is a very timely and helpful read. I also bought Amy's accompanying book '22 Activities For Families in Transition' from [...]. This is packed with activities and discussion starters to use together as a family in transition. I'm also enjoying being part of a 'Looming Transitions' bookclub led by Amy herself over at [...], where she shares lots of behind-the-scenes of this book.

A must read for Christians facing cross cultural transitions. Full of practical advice that comes from a wealth of personal experience and grounded in biblical principles and good sense. Should be read at least 6 months before the move as its about leaving/finishing well rather than about moving onto new things. Although the author is American her international experience means that its not full of American culture but is applicable to all of us. Highly recommended,

Very helpful to read this as I mull over the last months of transition from our home in Asia 'back' to the UK. The ideal time to read it would have been 6 months before the move! But it is helping me better understand how different members of our family have reacted and coped, as well as feeling affirmed in having moved on well. Now on to 'Returning Well' by Melissa Chapman for further reflection.

Excellent book. Addresses practical aspects to transitions, whether coming or leaving, but also puts God in the picture and helps the reader keep Him there in the midst of the transition.
