Back Cover Description:
You’ve probably heard the words ‘Live out your faith’ dozens, if not hundreds, of times, but what does that phrase really mean? And how do you really follow Jesus in today’s world? In this student adaptation of his book Thrive, Casting Crowns’ Mark Hall explores exactly what it means when your faith and your life collide, and how you can take the next steps in making that faith real and evident to those around you. Using relatable stories, applications you can use, as well as some life lessons, Hall shows how you can root yourself in the truth and grow strong in your beliefs as you become the person God designed you to be.

He is lead singer and songwriter for the Grammy Award-winning band Casting Crowns, whose first three albums have sold nearly four million copies. He has been in ministry nearly twenty years and has served at Eagle’s Landing First Baptist Church in McDonough, Georgia, for the last eight years.

Even on tour, Mark and Melanie homeschool their four children: John Michael, Reagan, Zoe, and Hope.

It is simple enough to keep attention, makes excellent spiritual points. At the end of each chapter Mark highlights the Point to remember making the overall message easier to remember for the reader. You won’t be disappointed with this book; you might actually just find yourself growing.
