Tell A Friend
By Rick Lawrence

Meet the new cultural darling: Grit--that quality at our core that allows us to persevere in the face of fear, confusion, and pain. National best-selling books and viral TED Talks have launched the subject into the stratosphere, touting it as the tool for personal and professional success. 
 
But Rick Lawrence, podcast host and author of The Jesus-Centered Life, isn't content to let culture have the final word on grit. Because without connecting grit to a passion for Jesus, it's just a self-help trend doomed to disappoint.
 
Spiritual Grit seeks a better outcome by exploring why Jesus sometimes chooses to inject hardship into our lives rather than remove it. From the value of taking risks to the challenge of letting loved ones take personal responsibility during adversity, Lawrence paves an insightful and practical path toward greater endurance, confidence, and character.
 
Spiritual Grit shares:
• Biblical stories of those who grew a "grit backbone" as a result of their interactions with Jesus
• A menu of life habits that fertilize grit
• A method for identifying habits that undermine grit
• An exclusive Spiritual Grit Assessment to help readers develop grit 
 
Without Jesus, grit is just a gimmick. With Jesus, grit can infuse the world--and our lives--with hope.
 
Spiritual Grit is ideal for Christians who feel stuck in their personal trajectory, for parents interested in helping their kids develop spiritual grit, and for anyone wanting to invest in their spiritual, emotional, and intellectual growth.

Overview

Why do some people thrive during challenges, and others don’t?

The answer is grit: the strength at our core that fuels a scrappy response to threats, fear, confusion, and pain.

Two factors are central to growing a gritty core, but have remained under the radar: 1) A passion for something higher than yourself, and 2) Everyday life practices that help us nurture the strength we need to move through whatever life throws at us.

Spiritual Grit explores the foundation for these two factors, then offers an extensive menu of everyday life practices that Jesus modeled in his ministry, including:

  • Ways to access the strength needed to live a resilient life, through a dependent relationship with Jesus
  • Biblical stories of those who grew a “grit backbone” through their interactions with Jesus
  • A menu of life habits that fertilize grit, plus a method for identifying habits that undermine it
  • A way for readers to assess their own spiritual grit

Without Jesus, grit is just a gimmick. With Jesus, grit can infuse the world—and our lives—with hope.
