In Young's book, the reader will find . . . clear concise writing, enough personal stories to qualify as a memoir, solid practical advice coupled with honest examples and illustrations based on real experiences, and just the right amount of humor. The author's voice comes through loud and strong! I appreciated how she shares her wide experience, her heart and her faith. A great gift for anyone about to experience a transition.
