About the Book:
When battling mental illness, it takes courage to find victories in the small things of life—including, some days, getting out of bed. In his first-person spiritual journal Courage to Thrive, Rev. Dr. Bob Flanagan, who has battled mental health illness for two decades and managed to thrive, offers meditations that navigate the dark scenery of his mind and then the paths that lead to the Source of light. Whether dealing with mental health challenges or everyday stressors of life, readers are left with a quiet confidence that they can still thrive and enjoy the gifts God has given them. Each reflection concludes with a heartfelt prayer that revels in God’s healing mercies.
