Editorial Reviews


Praise for How to Grow

God wants us to grow. But without a plan, growth will remain an aspiration instead of a reality. How to Grow provides a robust, practical, and habit-based plan to help individuals and churches become more intentional in pursuing transformation. If you’re interested in growing and helping others grow, then you’ll appreciate this book.


Billy Graham Chair of Church, Mission, and Evangelism at Wheaton College and Executive Director of the Billy Graham Center

I’ve become such an admirer of Darryl Dash in the several years I’ve known him, and I’m grateful to see his pastoral and practical wisdom poured into these pages. Without a doubt, people will read How to Grow and discover habits to help them grow in Christ. This will now be the first book I turn to in my own discipleship relationships.


Author of Teach Us to Want and Keeping Place

Deeply simple. Profoundly accessible. Generously gracious. Here are three phrases that describe How to Grow. In his book, Darryl outlines a refreshing approach to an ancient practice—spiritual growth. So don’t miss this, and don’t read it too fast either—take it one step at a time.


Author of No Silver Bullets, coauthor of Planting Missional Churches,

director of church multiplication at NewChurches.com, podcaster, and teaching pastor

Discipleship is a key but often neglected part of Christian life and ministry. Without intentionality, it simply won’t happen. I’m encouraged to see Darryl exploring this important topic, and pray that this book will be a blessing to the church.


Author of Do More Better and blogger at challies.com

While we may say we believe the gospel, most of us aren’t changed by it. How to Grow is about how to get the gospel in you—not through more information but through desire-forming habits.

Darryl Dash’s book is a hopeful and practical pathway for personal and communal transformation: one that combats “try harder and know more” with the explosive power of grace.


Pastor’s wife, and author of Finding Holy in the Suburbs

If you’re frustrated by the long lists of do’s and don’ts often found in books on spiritual growth, you’ll find How to Grow refreshingly straightforward and relevant. Filled with relatable stories, reflection

questions, and actionable next steps, this book invites readers to grow into the full life found in Jesus Christ, not just in the eternity to come but in our daily lives right where we are.


Founder of One Thing Alone Ministries, and author of Full: Food, Jesus, and the Battle for Satisfaction and He Is Enough: Living in the Fullness of Jesus

Darryl Dash has an ability to present the truth in memorable and inviting ways. This book will be another good contribution to the community of faith.


Author of This Is Our Time, Bible and Reference Publisher at LifeWay Christian Resources and managing editor of The Gospel Project

I cannot overstate my enthusiasm for Darryl Dash’s project How to Grow. Though there are plenty of books on the classic spiritual disciplines, there are precious few that equip believers for practicing spiritual disciplines as a means of grace—as habits of the heart integrated into the whole of life. I will rejoice when this book gets published.


Teacher in Residence at West End Community Church, Nashville, TN, professor, and author of Everyday Prayers

 Luther once said that to progress is always to begin again. In other words, Christian growth is not so much about reaching one new level of spirituality after the next as it is about returning, again and again, to the same grace that saved us in the first place. ’Tis grace that brought us safe thus far, and grace will lead us home. Few resources help us in this grace journey as clearly and effectively as How to Grow does. I look forward not only to benefitting from Darryl’s guidance myself, but also to sharing it with friends and congregants who long for progress in their journey toward becoming like Christ.


Pastor of Christ Presbyterian Church and author of From Weakness to Strength and Irresistible Faith.

The thing I love most about How to Grow is that Dash approaches spiritual discipleship holistically. He understands that there’s no sacred/ secular divide, and all of life can be worship and an opportunity to grow closer to Christ. Dash teaches people how to truly be successful in applying the gospel to all areas of life, because he understands that it’s only by God’s grace.


Author of Longing for Motherhood

I like this book a lot. It is simple, clear, biblically faithful, and extremely practical. Written by a pastor with experience in the stop and start nature of spiritual growth.


Founder of 20schemes, and author of Church in Hard Places

From the Back Cover

Do you ever wonder if this is it?

Are you feeling stuck or stagnant in your spiritual life? Do you want to enjoy God more? The good news is that spiritual growth is NOT about white-knuckling your way to sainthood.

But how do you actually do it? In How to Grow, Darryl Dash presents a habit-based approach to spiritual growth that is theologically rich, strategic, and highly practical. With warmth, wisdom, and wit, Darryl exposes common misconceptions of spiritual growth, helps you identify where you are in the process, and teaches you to discern what your next step should be. And he’ll show you how to successfully build practices that will help you delight in God and life—even in the midst of difficulty.

Beginning with the gospel and ending with loving Jesus more today than you did yesterday, you can experience the change you’re looking for.
