‘Sadly, studies show that there are few differences in the attitudes and actions between people who claim to be Christians and those who don’t choose that label. But everything we read in the Bible says we should be transformed; we should be different than the rest of the world. What would it look like if you lived the life God desires for you? How would your life be different if you abandoned your typical routine and refused to settle for anything less than the best God has in store for you? In Thrive, you’ll find 20 life-impacting studies that will draw you into the Bible and help you understand who you are and who God wants to help you become. You’ll discover what the Bible says about how God made you, what kind of life he has planned for you, and how you can survive the tough times of your life. Even if you struggle to keep your faith alive at times, God wants to help you thrive. The reality is, God loves us just the way we are—but he also loves us too much to leave us that way.’

All The Single Ladies
