With When Strivings Cease Study Guide with DVD, bestselling author, entrepreneur, and speaker Ruth Chou Simons calls women to discover how God's profound gift of grace and favor invites them to rest from chasing approval and earning love, and instead discover the freedom of true belonging and worth that doesn't depend on them.

In this six-session Bible study, Ruth guides us all on a journey to find freedom from the never-ending quest for approval and affirmation. She shows us how to:

  • confront the ways we look to superficial means of acceptance and belonging, and find relief in realizing we can't be so amazing that we won't need grace
  • stop seeing God as someone we perform for and start finding delight in responding to God's welcome
  • find relief from running the hamster wheel of relying on our own strength, our own abilities, and our own savvy--and always coming up short--by truly understanding the freedom Jesus purchased

With personal story, biblical insights, practical applications, and original artwork by Ruth, this transformational new book helps us see the beautiful truth that God's favor is the only currency we need, because in Christ we are enough.
