From the Back Cover
"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

In her own words: "Without the anchor of scripture, we're left to drift in our feelings and natural reason. These are fertile soil for deception. It is only in knowing what He's already said to us in the Bible that we can more clearly discern His whisper. Honestly, I can sense this is someone who has learned to thrive in the Lord, and she has overcome her own crisis and shares that with others in her book.
Nancy Grisham gets what it means to let our light shine and we are blessed to have her insights from her own life experiences. . Thank you for that!
Thanks to Nancy for sharing so honestly and openly. Her journey and her book will encourage every reader as they seek a deeper life with Christ.
I will recommend this book to anyone who has a desire to know God in a more personal powerful way. I could not put this book down.
