    "Find and use your talent!"
    If you could sum up Flourish in three words, what would they be?

    God gives every person a "talent". It is each person's responsibility to find and use their "talent" to serve mankind. "Talent" also the bithplace of creativity. This book is about finding and expressing ones "talent"


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Flourish?

    The concrete suggestions for cultivating creativity were practical and useful


    What does Staci Frenes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her authenticity really made the material come alive for me


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    After the author's father died, her father's best friend created a piece of art to honor him and allow everyone to remember him-I was very touched by the story

    "A Truly Beautiful Experience!"
    What made the experience of listening to Flourish the most enjoyable?

    This was a beautiful book that the author Staci wrote and narrated for us. She shares many life lessons with us. I started to listen to the book once, than started it over when I realized what I was listening too. While your listening to the book you learn many different life changing lessons. That if a person takes each in one at a time. I believe could help change your life for the better. I know that I choose to do this. I've been having a rough time myself and got lost in the problems of my life. While listening to Staci I started to work through her ideas. A good part of her message is that Gods gifts should not be wasted. I agree with everything she wrote about not wasting what God has gifted each of us. We can find more fulfillment by using our God given talents and help uplift others along the way. I felt lucky to have gotten a chance to listen to her book. I feel more on track again in my life. I had prayed for help turning things around. I felt that I did get that through this book it was just what I needed to hear.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Flourish?

    I had two memorable moments. I too had a wonderful grandmother that I learned many life lessons from. Staci talks about how her grandmother liked to make her own clothes and what the meant to Staci as she looked back on growing up around her grandmother.

    When Staci Frenes writes about a family that had lost a 16 year old son. They choose to plant a cherry tree. Staci explains that the cherries are a bitter sweet reminder of the son they had lost.

    Staci shares several heart touching stories with us that she has been apart of through out her life. Each seemed to me to be a step toward learning what that meaning of life is really about. This a beautiful book she has wrote from her heart. I would recommend listening to Staci and what she has to teach each of us. Thank you very much Staci for sharing with us the listeners!

    Story
    "A Wonderful Book About Tapping Into Creativity"

    I loved listening to Staci Frenes' stories about how she was able to tap into her creativity when she had low points in her life. I can completely relate as an artist myself. Many times one has multiple things going on in their lives and they push back their creativity.

    Staci includes her personal stories and tips on overcoming those blocks. And her stories are so endearing. She included lyrics from songs she wrote herself as well as a few passages from the Bible.

    "Flourish" is a terrific audiobook that I feel certain has and will help me. I would definitely recommend giving this a listen.

    Another thing I really enjoyed was the fact that Staci narrated her own book. In my opinion it doesn't get any better than that. She has a beautiful, upbeat voice filled with positivity. You can hear the joy, gratitude, and inspiration as she speaks.

    "Very encouraging and a must read !"

    Absolutely!! Not only is Staci Frenes an awesome singer/song writer but a very talented, creative and awesome author.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Flourish?

    I loved when Staci talked about her Nana and how her Nana would make her clothing. Reminded me of my own Nana and how she would do the same things for me.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I can't really pin point a favorite place in this book as it kept me interested the whole entire time. I love the encouraging words and the creativity and wants me to grow and be a better person.


    What did you learn from Flourish that you would use in your daily life?

    To channel that inner creativity and this feel good book makes everything be positive around you. I really needed this book today. A must read. You will love it and enjoy every word.


    Any additional comments?

    I learned about the book through the artists page. Staci is a very talented singer/songwriter and I am a huge fan of her singing/song writing. She has a lot of creativity and I am so glad I was introduced to her singing and then this book. Such a rockstar who is so down to earth!
