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.

What I Needed In The Season I’m In

I love how Jennie is so raw and vulnerable. Sharing her journal entries was some of my favorite content. To be able to see her walk through the loss of her daughter, and how she leaned on and relied on God and trusted God and still is was so encouraging for my walk I’m in right now. To know I’m not alone and that there are others out there fighting to flourish helps me so much! Thank you Jennie for writing this book and allowing God to use you and your story!

Beginning to End

From the beginning to the end without a doubt honest. Uplifting but real life. It’s so refreshing to hear this story of pain and imperfection without growing bitterness. Love love love a thousand times, definitely healed some of the pain I’ve carried in my heart for so long. Thankful for finding this audiobook.

Just beautiful.

It's one thing to read a great book but to be able to hear the writers voice, emotions and inflection makes it that much better. Jennie, your story of Lenya touched me for a second time. I've now read both yours & Levi's books and have been inspired double time. You both have an extraordinary gift of sharing and encouraging that's unmatched. I know it couldn't have been easy to relive all of the hardest moments of your life but you did with such grace & strength. I laughed, I cried, my heart was broken and warmed. Thank you for writing this book... for the biblical truths of inspiration, encouragement and who's we are. I will highly recommend The Flight to Flourish to anyone and everyone! Oh & last but not least, thank you for reminding me that I'm His favorite! :) God bless!

Thank you for speaking life

While I have heard Levi’s sermons I’ve never heard from Jennie. Wow, what a writer. She pulled me in and I could not stop listening. She had me crying and laughing. Thank you for sharing your journey. I know how many lives that will be touched.

Powerful Book

Granted I have not felt the pain that Jennie and Levi have by losing a child, but the Lord used this book to meet me where I am and to truly speak to me. My husband and I just planted a church 8 months ago, and it has been really hard. This book gave me the encouragement I needed to not give up and to keep flourishing. I have sent a copy to everyone I can think of who could benefit from reading this book.
