About the Book
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.

My Take on the Book
I am a BIG Casting Crowns fan and I have read the adult version of this book too so I was interested to see how the student version would compare. That being said I will tell you that this version is just as powerful as the adult version, but they bring forth their message in a way that young people will enjoy and connect to. At the same time, the book allows young readers to see a purpose and a focus for themselves and how this ties into the mission that God has for them. One of the things that was nice in this version was at the end of every chapter there was a wrapping up of points which really brought together the overall message for the reader to understand. This book provides that stepping stone for any student to be able to know God and themselves better. At the same time it gives the reader the ability and the motivation to take the next step in their own spiritual journey which is something that I have to say, I want for my own kids!
