ABOUT THE BOOK (192 pages):
Our lives are like objects hurtling through time, constantly colliding with changing circumstances or situations that send us careening down new trajectories; new paths. "Change," however, doesn't have to be a bad word. When we learn how to respond to it, change can make the rest of our lives even better. Experienced church founder and pastor Bishop Dale Bronner explains in practical terms how to take responsibility for our trajectory instead of panicking over change or stagnating from lack of change. With helpful principles, motivation, and personal stories, this book is a guide for any Christian who wants to work hard and become a master of change. Although some adversity may be inevitable along the way, our only true failure is a failure to launch in a new trajectory when times, situations, and circumstances change around us. Bronner encourages us to prophesy our future and to realize that the power in God's Word can take us to a new and better place.

I have read the book and blogged my review: http://bit.ly/1NNbzjR
That blog posts to Facebook and Google+. I also placed reviews on Amazon, CBD, Deeper Shopping, Shelfari, GoodReads, and Twitter.
Here is the text of my blogged review:
Bronner wants us to be proactive and be prepared for the change coming our way. It will come. He wants us to be in the flow of what God is doing and that means a new trajectory for us.
We are in for a journey, Bronner writes. He wants us to have joy and blessings on the way. He helps us understand the difference between transition and change. He advises us to adapt, improve, observe, and connect. He reminds us that God wants us us to draw closer to Him, especially in times of confusion. We must be obedient to God's direction.
Bronner walks us through the indications of a new trajectory. He has good teaching on how to be an active participant in and not a victim of change. He reminds us the importance of our thoughts and gives skills and practices to help us, like developing a vision.
I really appreciate that his book is not a get rich kind of book. He advocates hard work. “If it was an overnight success,” he writes, “ then it was a long, long night.” (151) He wants us to be industrious and take the initiative. He helps us deal with failure and gives practical ideas for the important discipline of prayer. He weaves in lessons from the Bible throughout.
I like how encouraging Bronner is, reminding us we are here at this time by God's doing and by His grace. God has uniquely qualified each of us for a task and Bronner wants us to be competent at it. He has good suggestions to that end. I especially love his “also” principle.
This is a good book for people who are facing a transition in their life or feel God is calling them to make a change. You'll find great encouragement and practical suggestions for your journey.
My rating: 4/5 stars.
Dale C. Bronner has transitioned through many jobs and ministries. He was called to the pastorate at age twenty-seven and founded Word of Faith Family Worship Cathedral two years later. He is a conference speaker, leadership trainer, and author of several books. He and his wife live in Atlanta. They have five children and two grandchildren.

Change is not an easy thing to attain. We tend to dig in our heels and refuse to budge, unless that change produces satisfaction that is easily obtained. Bishop Bronner has laid out some tools for readers to use in making positive changes in our lives that will benefit us through our Christian walk.

Change is hard but making positive changes in our lives can bring great rewards.
God want to direct our lives but we need to listen prayerfully to Him. He has a purpose for everyone's life even if you haven't discovered it yet.
This book is especially encouraging for those going through life-changing events.

Unfortunately, we live in a time of change and flux. This can add uncertainty to our lives and make us very uncomfortable. This great book will give you ideas and tips to experience joy while going through the constant changes we face every day.
Bishop Bronner begins by explaining the difference between change and transition. This difference is important to remember as we navigate our way through change. Transition will cause an emotional impact, one that we don’t always see coming and in many cases, will be painful. The one thing we can depend on is God.
As you delve further into this book, you will find ways to handle the changes and experience God in new ways that you can’t imagine. Learning new skills is never easy, but with the ideas presented, you can gradually make small adjustments in your thinking and in adapting to new skills. Your trajectory will have some moments of back sliding and failure, but using awareness, new skills and staying connected to others will bring you back on track.
The last third of the book presents 10 Principles for Changing Your Trajectory. These great principles will aid you greatly in getting started, and will help you to stay focused on handling the emotional part and focusing on God. One principle that I am working hard at changing is to seek God first and not run to the phone to seek answers from others. That one principle hit me smack in the face when I read “leave the phone alone and go to the throne.”
This is a gem of a book and I am so thankful that I have had the opportunity to read it. This is one of those books that I will enjoy reading again and again as I keep moving on my new trajectory. I would highly recommend this book to everyone.
I was given this book free by Book Club Network in exchange for an honest review.
In his book, Change Your Trajectory, author Dale Bronner writes about change. Now, like most people, I don’t like change especially if it sneaks up and surprises me. In his book he gives some much needed advice and wisdom on how to look at changes and how to move on and live joyful lives even in the midst of uncertainty. He defines the meaning of change and transition for us in a way that makes sense and shows us that it is the internal transition not the outward change so much that what we have to muddle through. Using scripture and reminding us of our better life in the world to come, he wants us to remember that even though we live in a constant changing world and circumstances of our life, we serve a God who is unchanging and forever remains the same. We can count on that and have a hope that the changes God is allowing to come into our lives is for our development, which is more important than our happiness to God. This is a book that I will be keeping for years to come. I received a copy of this book for an honest review from The Book Club Network, Inc. and the opinions are my own.

This is an amazing book. There is so much information about how to look at change through God's eyes.
Favorite quote was found on Page 81
There's nothing more powerful than getting a picture of your future that will cause you to be pregnant with purpose and give birth to action.
Everyone can find something that they can take away from this book.
It will change your perspective and make you look at your life and welcome changes.
Any book that makes you want to look into the scriptures more is a good read.
