Book Review: Courage for the Unknown Season

Courage for the Unknown Season: Navigating What’s Next with Confidence and Hope:

Author Jan Silvious offers hope for the journey of life by focusing on the positive. In light of scripture, she helps you view aging—and any other unknown season of life—as an opportunity to learn and grow. After all, God is the God of all seasons.

Her chapter on resilience points out how others have survived hard times. A chapter on fear helps you identify pessimism to instead focus on gratitude. One chapter reminds you to find humor in life, and another motivates you to change the question “why?” to “why not?”

The author’s writing style is light and conversational. She’s a speaker, professional life coach and grandmother who has authored 11 books. Published by NavPress, the book’s back matter includes notes with resources to dig deeper into chapter topics. The book is endorsed by notables such as Mark Lowry, Anita Renfroe, Patsy Clairmont and Babbie Mason.

I bought this book because I felt overwhelmed by changes I detect on the horizon of a new decade. But whether you’re facing a major birthday or a major move or loss. Jan Silvious offers hope for the journey. I enjoyed the read and will refer back to it as needed.
