Pivot Point by Lori Ann Thompson encourages readers to reflect on their lives and consciously decide to change their trajectory. The author describes the 'Pivot Point' as the moment you draw a line in the sand to end the cycle of stagnation and unhappiness. Drawing from Bible verses and J.R.R. Tolkien's works, the book offers a unique perspective on the importance of self-reflection and intentional change. Thompson shares her own story of overcoming grief and disappointment with God's help and offers guidance on trusting in God's guidance and finding one's identity in Christ. The book emphasizes the importance of having a vision, values, and purpose, even amid chaos, and encourages readers to shine the light of God for others to see.

Pivot Point encourages readers to deepen their faith and trust in God, highlighting the transformative process of leaving one's comfort zone to find purpose and fulfillment in God's kingdom. The author balances the potential pain and discomfort of this journey with the promise of personal, social, and spiritual growth that comes from renewing one's mind and being obedient to God's will. The well-crafted narrative, combined with Lori Ann Thompson's thoughtful incorporation of quotes from famous hymns, The Hobbit, and The Lord of the Rings books and movies, creates a rich and engaging read. Her vulnerability in sharing her struggles and triumphs is a powerful catalyst for empathy and connection, inspiring others to open up about their own experiences and find comfort in knowing they are not alone. After reading this book, I feel renewed and encouraged, and I would recommend it to anyone feeling stuck, as it offers a sense of hope and motivation to move forward.
