Do you experience mental and emotional pain that impacts how you see yourself, others and God? Do you want to know God more but aren’t sure where to start? Do you want to know your purpose in life but aren’t sure what it is? So often we look to ourselves or others to satisfy our needs, forgetting that the Bible has all we need for optimum freedom from the hurt and pain of our past. Surviving to Thriving takes a biblical approach to complete wholeness. You will learn how to look to Jesus as the source to all life's answers, and the guide in every area of your life. Our weekly guests are specifically designed to provide practical guidance and knowledge to lead you to a deeper understanding of the Bible and its application to your everyday life. Look forward to developing a greater understanding of yourself, your life and those you influence as you gain a greater knowledge of God and who He created you to be. Here you can trust in God’s word to take your life from surviving to thriving.
