Explore how to live a life of joy and fullness, especially in the midst of disappointment and broken dreams.

How do you live a full life? Perhaps the better question is, how do you really live when life throws you sucker punches, when you face obstacles that seem to snuff out your faith, when you lose something or someone precious to you? In The Fight to Flourish, Jennie Lusko encourages women to suit up and thrive, not just in the dailies of monotony and routine but even in the most desolate of places. Using the backdrop of her second-born daughter Lenya’s passing into heaven five days before Christmas in 2012, Jennie invites readers to embrace whatever destination they’ve landed. She teaches how, through the good and the bad, they can learn to grow, be strong, draw near to God, and be a blessing to others. It is in this sacred space of pain and promise that women can begin to flourish.

My Thoughts:

The Fight to Flourish by Jennie Lusko is a beautifully written book about dealing with life’s hardships and finding strength in pain.

After her five-year-old daughter suddenly passes away from an asthma attack, Jennie shares her most vulnerable and intimate thoughts about God, life, and grief during the darkest time of her life.

Though it would have been easy to succumb to grief, Jennie shares how her grief strengthened her faith, her relationships, and her purpose. But, finding the beauty in the pain certainly didn’t happen overnight. With grief comes feelings of anger, sadness, and guilt. Through her writing, we see Jennie experience it all. However, we also see the strength, wisdom, and growth that Jennie experiences once she comes out from the other side.

The Fight to Flourish is a book about strengthening your relationship with God and yourself. Though this book has a strong focus on faith, regardless of your religious views, it contains valuable messages about grief, growth, and resilience that applies to everyone.

“If you can lean in, embrace the challenge, and fight through the hard things, you will start to see the joy in heartache. You will even start getting out of bed in the morning with a greater sense of purpose, no matter how much you love your bed.”

Grief and pain will swallow you whole if you allow them to. When something bad happens, it’s often difficult or near impossible to find the good in it. However, The Fight to Flourish encourages you to find the good in the bad. It encourages you to use pain as an agent that helps you experience emotional, physical, and spiritual growth. Once you’re able to do that, you’re unstoppable.
