Summary

Meant to Live unpacks how Christians can live in the power and glory of the Gospel—the Good News of Jesus Christ—and celebrate God’s glory in themselves, and the Church. 

Inspirational communicator Nancy Hicks describes four “camps” of Christians who wallow in the bad news (our fallen-ness), while disgruntled Christians and non-Christians alike are watching and thinking: If that’s what it means to be a Christian, no thanks! Frankly, these versions of the Gospel aren’t good. So, those watching are left wondering: How are we to live? 

Meant to Live offers a vision on humanity’s calling and a way to live a genuine life gloriously into the Good News! Nancy combines personal stories with biblical wisdom and offers a revisit of the Gospel, a fresh view on humanity’s glory as seen in the Gospel, an honest diagnosis of the four main “camps” often found in the Church, an honest assessment of self, a practical guide to living in light of the Gospel, and an inspired and energized focus on the core calling in Christians’ lives.

    “Sweetbriar Cottage is a story to fall in love with. True-to-life characters, high stakes, and powerful chemistry blend to tell an emotional story of reconciliation.” 
    —Brenda Novak, New York Times bestselling author 
    When Noah and Josephine discover their divorce was never actually finalized, their lives are turned upside down. 
    Following his divorce, Noah gave up his dream job and settled at a remote horse ranch in the Blue Ridge Mountains of northern Georgia, putting much-needed distance between himself and the former love of his life. But then Noah gets a letter from the IRS claiming he and Josephine are still married. When he confronts Josephine, they discover that she missed the final step in filing the paperwork and they are, in fact, still married. 
    Josephine is no happier about the news than Noah. Maybe the failed marriage—and botched divorce—was her fault, but her heart was shattered right alongside his, more than he would ever believe. The sooner they put this marriage behind them, the better for both of their sakes. 
    But when Josephine delivers the final paperwork to his ranch, the two become stranded in his cottage during the worst spring snowstorm in a decade. Being trapped with Josephine is a test of Noah’s endurance. He wrestles with resentment and an unmistakable pull to his wife—still beautiful, still brave, and still more intriguing than any woman he’s ever known. 
    As they find themselves confronted with each other and their shared past, old wounds surface and tempers flare. But when they are forced out into the storm, they must rely on each other in a way they never have before. Josephine finally opens up about her tragic past, and Noah realizes she’s never been loved unconditionally by anyone—including him. Will Noah accept the challenge to pursue Josephine’s heart? And can she finally find the courage to trust Noah? 
    “Sweetbriar Cottage is a wonderful story, full of emotional tension and evocative prose.” 
    —Francine Rivers, New York Times bestselling author of Redeeming Love
