Summary: Do you feel stuck or stagnant? Are you tired of going through the motions of faith? Do you want to make real progress in your life, but not know where to start? How to Grow is a book for people who want to grow spiritually and help others grow as well.

We often see the gospel as the starting point of the Christian life, rather than the main point of all of life. But the truth is that the gospel is the key to all ongoing growth in our lives. As Galatians 2:14 says, we are called to live our whole lives “in step with the truth of the gospel.” In How to Grow, Darryl Dash will walk you through a practical, habit-based approach to spiritual growth.

Join Darryl as he unpacks the gospel, shows how it applies to every area of your life, and helps you evaluate your current stage of growth so you know what steps to take next. You’ll learn why habits are important, how to build them, and which ones to focus on first. Plus, you’ll discover the roles that joy and desire play in our spiritual growth journey.

Practical without being formulaic, How to Grow offers actionable ideas to facilitate spiritual growth in the lives of regular, messy people—people like you and me.

How to Grow

How to Grow is about making progress in your spiritual life. Darryl explains how there are different stages in our spiritual journey and the ways you can work on moving from one to another, instead of staying stagnant at one of them.

At the end of each chapter is a summary, questions for reflection and discussion and what do I do now?

The book overall is good, with helpful information. The reason it’s 3 stars instead of 4 or 5 is because I think the book needs a little order fixing. I found the first chapter or two a little boring and basic but luckily I held out and it got better from there. I think the book would be better without the first chapter.

If you feel you are stuck in your spiritual life, I recommend the book. If you consider yourself a Christian but don’t know what to do now, the book is for you. The author includes step by step instructions to move forward and explains the why behind it.
