Overview

"Want to be spiritually encouraged, enlightened, and inspired? Then open this book!"—Lee Strobel, bestselling author of The Case for Christ and The Case for Faith

Jesus made believers a bold promise: life and life to the fullest. He offers us more than just barely getting by when challenges come our way. But that kind of life doesn't happen automatically.

Thriving equips you to live the abundant life. Using personal stories and biblical insights, Nancy Grisham shows you how to appropriate Jesus's promise in your own life, even in the midst of difficult circumstances. Each chapter concludes with a practical reflection and application section perfect for individual study or small group discussions.

"It is so refreshing for someone to break through the paralyzing survival mentality and offer a strategy that enables us to thrive. The chapter 'You Are Here . . . and So Is God' alone is worth the price of the book. Thriving is a treasure map to abundant life."—Ken Davis, speaker, comedian, and award-winning author

"Thriving will challenge you to renew your mind, ignite your passion, and engage in the adventure of a lifetime. I highly recommend this book for personal and for small group studies."—Carol Kent, author, Between a Rock and a Grace Place and When I Lay My Isaac Down

"Nancy shows us practically how to use the pain of our lives to drive us to the Lord and not away from him. 'Real faith,' she writes, 'goes the distance with God, especially in rough terrain.' I heartily recommend this book."—Jill Briscoe, author and minister, Elmbrook Church, Brookfield, Wisconsin

"A book that encourages us to take a hard look at the gap between surviving and thriving. Using life circumstances, effective practices, and out-of-the-box moments, the journey becomes an adventure in knowing a good God. And that changes everything."—Nancy Ortberg, author, Looking for God: An Unexpected Journey through Tattoos, Tofu, and Pronouns
