“Froh’s Christianity is front and center throughout his book, but it’s so personally and passionately woven into his advice that nonreligious readers will still find plenty of clear, heartfelt counsel in these pages. A bracing series of strong urgings for more mindful and self-possessed living.” Kirkus Reviews

10 Commandments for 20-Somethings to Live the Best-Life-Possible

“Lighten your load. Lift your spirit. Live your destiny.”

We’re born to thrive. Yet, few do. Some people, however, have “it.” They embody courage. They radiate love. They exude gratitude. How? They trust their conscience to guide them along their dirt path. They give warm gazes, smiles, and embraces, keeping the human touch alive. They understand that death is a reality and life is a gift. So, what’s their secret? They have a drive to thrive. You can, too.

In this book, Dr. Jeffrey Froh presents his approach for how to thrive with 10 commandments mapped onto God’s 10 Commandments. Using many diverse sources—including science, Scripture, Greek mythology, philosophy, children’s books, and music, as well as client, student, and personal stories—he’ll show you why you’re born to thrive. With 50 practical, science-based tips, he’ll also show you how to thrive. After reading this book, you’ll be able to realize your personal, social, and spiritual potential by:

  • * Heeding your heart’s counsel—not the world’s counsel
  • * Embracing your uniqueness and finding real connection
  • * Accepting and bravely pursuing your mission

Keeping God’s 10 Commandments saves you from spiritual sin and helps you live virtuously. Keeping the 10 commandments to thrive saves you from “psychological sin” and helps you live your best-life-possible. Thus, keeping the 10 commandments to thrive may not help you reach Heaven—but it will help you reach heaven on Earth.

Dear Reader,

I spent 4 years writing Thrive. During this time, though I experienced much joy, I also experienced much pain. Further, because of stress, I couldn’t sleep, routinely writing by 4 am (sometimes earlier). I sacrificed everything for this book. Why? Because helping people live their best-life-possible is my mission. But, I can’t complete the mission alone. I need your help.

Share The Love

As with marriage, parents vow to have and to hold their children “in sickness and in health.” They keep Coco the moose and Montauk the bear on standby for tummy aches; they color beside their children on sick days while it’s recess at school; they tell stories of puppy parades when Mr. Sandman has yet to bring their child a dream. On a tri-level podium, these mothers and fathers wear gold. Gritty as they are, however, even parental champions struggle. They need help. They need hope. They need love.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital provides this—and more! Giving families the space to cope and heal, St. Jude pays for food, housing, travel, and treatment. This helps parents focus on what’s most important: loving their children. With St. Jude nurturing their bodies, and parents nurturing their hearts, children can then more quickly return to getting muddy, riding bikes, and eating raw cookie dough.

God never promised that life would be easy, but He promised to always walk beside us. Let’s do likewise for each other.

“We need food to survive. We need love to thrive.”
