Linda Freeman, author of THRIVE! An Interactive Journal to Inspire Spiritual Growth, knows whatit's like to go through times of testing and trial. THRIVE! represents Freeman's journey of self-discovery and personal strategic planning. It encompasses what she learned during difficultperiods of her life, and what she was able to turn around and share as a mentor. The very title, THRIVE!, invokes a spirit of motivation, inspiration, growth and excitement in Linda. Her desire is to help others move forward, learning not just how to survive, but THRIVE! Her new devotional takes participants on a 40-day journey, giving them time to clarify who they are on a deeper level, what is important to them, and where they want to focus their energy. Freeman's goal is for the reader to emerge from this 40-day experience with renewed purpose and intensity, finding encouragement and inspiration along the way.
