Break Free from Survival Mode
7 Ways to Thrive through Hard Times
No matter what life throws at you, you can thrive.
No one gets to skip the tough stuff. Though we're not promised an easy life, we are promised an abundant one. That abundance doesn't come in spite of our pain--it comes in the midst of it.
With plenty of British wit and loads of hard-won wisdom, Niki Hardy draws on her own journey, stories of others whose lives have shattered, and lessons from often-forgotten women of Scripture to equip you with seven practical tools for breaking free from survival mode, recapturing an abundant life, and thriving no matter how broken life seems.
It is possible to find hope, trust, joy, and laughter again. Let Niki show you where to look.

"Where is God in the midst of your pain? What happens when you're too tired and exhausted to pray? Whatever you're going through (the death of a loved one, an illness, a divorce, etc.), it's comforting to know that you're not alone. Niki Hardy has been through the valley of the shadow of death and eloquently unfolds her powerful story with raw, vulnerable honesty that cuts to the heart of the human condition. I would recommend this book to anyone going through a health crisis and to anyone struggling with the issue of real, active faith in the midst of a silent, raging tempest."
JD Chandler, national media personality, K-LOVE Radio Network
"Filled with life-giving hope, practical help, and the perfect blend of real-life humor we need when life falls apart! This book holds the truth we need and the companionship of the friend we want to walk through days that leave us gasping for air and seasons that make us wonder how we'll ever survive. Through the death of loved ones, her own battle with cancer, and one hard thing after another, Niki asked God tough questions and fought to find the answers we all need. I highly recommend Break Free from Survival Mode! I'm getting a copy to keep and a few to give away, and you should too!"
Renee Swope, bestselling author of A Confident Heart and former radio cohost, Proverbs 31 Ministries
"Niki Hardy is the voice you need to hear when life goes the opposite of what you imagined. I'm buying Break Free from Survival Mode in bulk to stock our arsenal of books that we keep around to give away to friends and family. This book is a gift."
Myquillyn Smith, Wall Street Journal bestselling author of Cozy Minimalist Home
"This is a gem of a book--just as its author is a gem of a person. Niki is vulnerable and real about pain and suffering, whether her own or others', but she doesn't leave us there. She points us back to God and gives us spiritual encouragement and some down-to-earth practices that we can engage in if we want to thrive and not just survive the tough times. A must-read for anyone who feels they are in a pit of any kind right now--or anyone who ever has been or will be, which just about covers us all, I think."
John Peters, rector of St. Mary's, Bryanston Square, London, England
"My friend Niki knows firsthand what it's like to feel like everything is falling apart, and somehow, in the midst of it all, draw closer to God. Niki leads us on a journey that will take each one of us straight to the feet of Jesus. And she does it with stunning vulnerability, biblical truth, and even humor. (Reading along, I couldn't help but laugh as I imagined her, with her British accent, talking about her 'bum,' 'the loo,' and 'rubbish.') I would recommend this beautiful book to anyone who doesn't simply want to survive but to rise up and thrive."
