Change: Facing the Unexpected

By Beth Severson

Dealing with change is difficult.  Along with disruption, change often brings distress, discouragement, grief, and isolation.  Yet change stretches us to grow in our relationship with God, building character and letting God accomplish His purpose in us.  This study features people all through the Bible who faced difficult changes. This Bible study will help you become better equipped to rely on God as your greatest resource through adversity.
