If life were a house, then every room holds a story. What do we do when a room we’re in is no longer a room where we belong?

What do you do when you start to feel a shift and must decide if it’s time to make a change?

When it comes to navigating big decisions about when to stay and go, how can we know for sure when the time is right?

Though we enter and exit many rooms over the course of our life—jobs, relationships, communities, life stages—knowing how and when it’s time to leave is a decision that rarely has a clear answer. You may be asking questions like:

How do I know if it’s time to move on?
What if I stay and nothing changes?
What if I leave and everything falls apart?

How to Walk into A Room will help you:

  • Know and name the caution flags in your current spaces
  • Discern the difference between true peace and discomfort avoidance
  • Navigate endings even when there is no closure
  • Find peace for when you feel ready but it isn’t time
  • Find courage for when it’s time but you don’t feel ready

For anyone standing in a threshold, here’s a book to help discern the how, when, and what now of walking out of rooms and into new ones with peace, confidence, and a whole heart.
