Feel like you are existing? Want to thrive instead?

Life has so many stressors. It seems like the only solution is to work harder, longer…but we all know that leads to burnout! Relationships explode or become frayed. Your best effort goes nowhere. You read your bible and see the prospect of an amazing life…a life of power, of transformation, of value, meaning and purpose.


Why don’t we see that today? It can be discouraging when you really want your life to count for something. Sometimes life feels crazy and you want to put the brakes on but can’t find the lever. What’s wrong? What’s the missing piece?

We think we have found the missing piece—well 19 of them actually. They are the 19 relational brain skills needed to develop and maintain healthy, joyful relationships. In the past these skills were informally and casually passed on from one generation to the next but now they are rapidly dropping out of society.Why?

When a parent experiences some form of life chaos (economic/emotional/spiritual) they may miss passing on a skill even though they have it. The child then grows up and cannot pass on what he does not have. And so skills can fall out of family lines. The lack of these skills is a major cause for all sorts of trauma, societal and relational chaos.

The good news is that these skills can be learned! That is what the THRIVE workshop is all about—reintroducing the skills back into society! Here is what you learn:

THRIVE restores missing brain skills!

  • Brain skills grow when you train with people who have the skills
  • Brain skills blossom with interactive exercises shared in states of joy and rest with people and God.
  • Brain skills bless your relationships and transform your character.
  • Brain skills are not learned by reading a book, scanning Facebook or watching television.
