GNF Weekend Read: Changing Zip Codes

Send to Kindle

By Carol Stratton

If you’ve ever packed up your entire house and seen it shipped off to a strange address, if you’ve ever had to walk into a new church, if you’ve ever had to hold your child’s hand in a new school, you will know why I wrote Changing Zip Codes: Finding Community Wherever You’re Transplanted.

With 22 moves with husband, four kids and a dog under my belt, I share encouraging stories, miracles and hope for newcomers. You can learn to move while keeping your family and humor intact!

If you are well rooted, consider purchasing the book to help understand the struggles a new neighbor or military family may be experiencing or better still, buy them a copy in print or ebook.

“After twenty-two moves, Carol Stratton is a relocation expert with a heart for the newcomer. Carol’s warm and witty stories, based on personal experiences, offer hope and encouragement to anyone faced with a move.” — Florence Littauer, International Author and Speaker, Founder of CLASSeminar ministry.
