What It (Really) Takes to Grow in Christ


For a few weeks now, I’ve hung out with some pretty neat gals as we’ve gathered together under the united effort of sharing the word about Mary DeMuth’s new book, Everything: What You Give and What You Gain to Become Like Jesus. 

Some call us a launch team; I call us friends who can’t help but share with others this must-read, potential-to-change-your-life book.

Here’s something pretty cool: For the next two days (48-hours!), Mary is offering some awesome freebies if you pre-order the book.

Why? Mainly as an experiment to see if it helps jumpstart sales when the book releases October 16th. And for your part in the fun, you’ll receive freebies worth $69.98, including an exclusive PDF of Everything. Which means you get to read it a full month before it releases!

If it’s scary to buy a book you know nothing about, Mary allows for a test driveRead the introduction and chapter one here.

But before we start all that, let’s look at the Everything trailer!

In Everything, you’ll learn how to make Jesus your everything. The secret? Give Him everything (including control!) and receive everything He has to offer. If you’d like to read the endorsements, click here. 

But here’s one just to whet your appetite:

“More than ever, we crave spiritual leadership not from academics in ivory towers but from battle-tested disciples in the trenches. This is the trusted counselor we find in Mary DeMuth. With wisdom and experience and tenderness and beauty, she leads us closer to Jesus in Everything—through despair, past fear, beyond control, and all the way to surrender.“ —Jen Hatmaker, best-selling author of Interrupted and 7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess

Here’s how the preorder campaign will work. Simply pre-purchaseEverything tomorrow or Thursday (September 19 & 20) from an online retailer and email your receipt to EverythingPromo@ThomasNelson.com. You’ll receive a link to a download landing page manned by Thomas Nelson. They’ll ask for some minimal info (in order to track the efficacy of the campaign) and you’ll have access to these freebies. Simple as that.

Here’s a bit more about the book:

Readers discover exactly what it takes to grow in Christ and become like Him.

“I don’t write this book as a condemnation or as a sermon. The last thing I want to do is provide a ‘how to be the best Christian in ten easy steps’ guide. I pen these words as a fellow struggler who is learning that what we think about God matters, how we allow Him to reign in our hearts matters, and how we obey Him in the moment matters. It all matters. Everything.”

Author and speaker Mary DeMuth has been abused, foreclosed, abandoned, and betrayed. She has been pressed and drained till it was too much . . .

But it was just enough to bring her to a place of surrender, piece by precious piece. In that surrender, she found the freedom of giving everything to God. And through Scripture, community, and the work of the Holy Spirit, she gives it all over again, every day.

In this gentle and challenging book, Mary describes the process and the nuances that shape us to be more like Christ. Her words are clear, vulnerable, and thought provoking, and every chapter is infused with Scripture.

Most of all, Mary provides personal and practical evidence that there is no greater pursuit than Christ. We must surrender everything, but it does not compare to the Everything He is, the Everything He gives.

Here are the goodies you’ll get:

  • An exclusive PDF of Everything ($9.99 value) a month before it releases. If you’ve been reading the quotes shared by the Everything Launch Team, and you’ve been meaning to read it, here’s your chance to read it now!

There’s hundreds of hours of instruction offered (video, audio, downloads) for nonfiction, fiction and marketing. If you hop on over to the Nonfiction Academy, you can watch 15 hours of me sharing everything I know about how to write books like Everything--and get them published!
  • The 11 Secrets of Getting Published (ebook). ($4.99 value) This is my magnum opus about publishing–every. single. thing. I know about publishing, writing, and marketing. It’s basically a download of my 22-year journey of publishing.
