Replacing the Gospel of Self-Improvement with the Gospel of Life-Transforming Grace

  • In When Strivings Cease, Ruth guides you on a journey to find freedom from the never-ending quest for self-improvement. She shows you how to:

    • confront the ways you look to superficial means of acceptance and belonging;

    • find relief in realizing self-help isn’t the answer because you can’t be so amazing that you won’t need grace;
    • stop seeing God as someone to perform for and start finding delight in responding to his welcome; and
    • let go of trying to rely on your own strength, your own abilities, and your own savvy by truly understanding the freedom Jesus purchased for you.

With personal stories, biblical insights, practical applications, and touches of original artwork by Ruth, this transformational book and companion Bible study will help you see the beautiful truth that God’s favor is the only currency you need—because in Christ you are enough!
