ECPA best seller

What if your struggles aren’t a barrier to thriving but an invitation into your most vibrant days? Discover how to live a life of joy and fullness, even in the midst of disappointment and broken dreams.

It is in the sacred space of pain and promise that we can begin to flourish. Even in the midst of disappointment and broken dreams, it is possible to grow, be strong, and draw near to God.

In The Fight to Flourish, Jennie Lusko draws on her experiences after the loss of her five-year-old daughter, Lenya, to show you that the ingredients for a fresh and thriving life are right in front of you.

With grit and grace, Jennie will help you: 

  • Discover that flourishing is not an impossible destination but a divine revelation of where you are right now.
  • Find relief from the weight of overwhelming circumstances by resting in the realization that God is fighting for you.
  • Trust that God is growing you in the gap between your expectations and your experience.

The word flourish is written all over you and your future.

Critic reviews

"As Greg and I have personally experienced, life doesn't always turn out like you had planned. It didn't for us when, in 2008, our son Christopher was suddenly called to heaven. Levi and Jennie were there for us in ways that mattered most.... In this book, Jennie shows us how one can not only survive but flourish in dark seasons of suffering. Jennie Lusko is not only a dear friend to our family but one of the most beautiful examples of a wise and godly woman with a strong message of hope." (Cathe Laurie, founder and executive director of Virtue for Women)

"Jennie Lusko is a woman whose life reflects the miracle-ground forged when grace and resilience hold hands. The harvest coming from that ground - tilled, broken, planted, and watered in seasons of real, hard life - is something beautiful to behold and utterly God-glorifying. As you lean into the tested and lived-out lessons from this book, may hope and grit rise up in you as the Lord deposits courage in you for your own fight to flourish." (Brooke Ligertwood, head of Hillsong Worship)

"God has plans for each of us that far exceed anything we could ever ask, think, or imagine. The Fight to Flourish will encourage you to hold on to God's promise of an 'exceedingly abundantly more' life, even when yours feels completely out of reach." (Christine Caine, best-selling author; founder of A21 and Propel Women)

Powerful & Inspiring

I’m truly inspired by the grace and courage you choose to live you life by. You don’t pretend it’s all easy and glorious, you are candid and raw and you choose to live in the Hope of Christ. Thank you for sharing your story, for sharing your fight and for loving the Lord regardless of the pain of this world. Your words bring hope and encouragement to my soul. I just finished listening and I’m starting the book over immediately. There was so many truths, and words of encouragement I want it to sink in more. Thank you for not just sharing your story but for continually bringing it back to the Word of God. That right there is the power in this book, may God richly honor your fight to flourish and help others seek Him wholeheartedly.

Thank you

Thank you so much for being brave enough to share your story and write this book. It has landed in our hands in the midst of a dark time In our family with miscarriages and suicide. Thank you for being humble, open and transparent in your thoughts and feelings as a believer in Christ. It is just what we needed. Nothing is wasted. Our God is so kind. You have helped us keep our eyes on the prize and for that we are thankful. <3

Incredible encouragement

This book is pure GOLD to anyone willing to invest the time in growing their faith when you don’t think you can fight another day. It was gifted to me by a dear friend for my birthday 2 weeks before we learned our son had a brain tumor. He has now had surgery, does NOT have cancer, and is flourishing like nothing happened! He is a miracle…a God miracle. I had no idea I would need to hear the words of this book but God did. He already knew how He would carry me through this HARD chapter. Thank you Jennie for doing what God placed on your heart by writing this book. He used you to bless me.

Beautifully written

I love how the author shares her heart. How it’s ok to grieve and be angry but you can’t stay there. You have to fight. What a beautiful message.

Needed even in the mist of my fight

I loved listening to The Fight to Flourish even in the mist of the difficult season my family and I are currently in. Every chapter breathed hope and life as I tackle another day with my baby in the NICU. Even as a believer for most of my life, it is a necessity to continue to be reminded of the presence, strength, and work of God. This book was my reminder for these months. Thank you.

No words to how AWESOME this book is!

This book was so inspiring and encouraging and Jennie really makes you feel like she is speaking to you. The unimaginable heartache that the Lusko's have been through is definitely rough to say the least. But the fact that she has still allowed God to use her is AMAZING!! I Loved this book and I would listen to it AGAIN!!❤
