Feeling stuck no matter how hard you try to make positive changes in your life? You can start living the life you want through the practical, biblical, and highly doable strategies in The Power to Change.

Few things in life are more frustrating than knowing you need to change, wanting to change, and trying to change, but not changing. Craig Groeschel knows what it's like to be caught in that demoralizing cycle. That was his own story--until he discovered practical principles for experiencing lasting change. Since then, Craig has helped countless others find true change in their relationships, habits, and thoughts.

In The Power to Change, Craig helps you understand:

  • How God's power, not your willpower, leads to true transformation
  • The real reasons you do what you do
  • Why falling isn't failure
  • The power of creating small habits that lead to big change
  • How to choose what you want most over what you want now


A powerful blend of biblical wisdom and fascinating psychology, The Power to Change includes helpful exercises, real-life stories, and life-changing spiritual insights. Whether you are trying to lose weight, breathe new life into your marriage, read the Bible more, get out of debt, or give up an addiction, Craig's step-by-step, time-tested strategies will equip you to start living the life God wants for you.


Craig Groeschel makes change feel possible. It isn't easy to stop what we shouldn't do and start what we should, but Craig serves as a compassionate guide and makes change feel accessible with simple exercises and introspective questions.

I often think that when people want to change, they look to remedies and a wide range of self-help solutions. But this book points you to supernatural lasting change by pointing you to the love of our heavenly Father and power in his name. Pastor Craig does it again, writing in such a clear way how change is possible because of God's power in us, not our own.

Life is about progression, not perfection. The good news is we all have the power to change.

As someone who has been transformed by the life and leadership of Craig Groeschel, I know this book will help you experience the same.

Newton's first law of motion says that an object at rest will stay at rest, and an object in motion will stay in motion unless acted upon by a greater external force. Change will happen only when something greater compels it to happen. In The Power to Change, Craig Groeschel provides the blueprint for harnessing the power of biblical truth to change situations we may have long given up on out of hopelessness. This book will truly change your life.

This is the book Craig Groeschel was born to write. I felt like I was being let behind the curtain of a life lived at full throttle. Is it a roadmap to getting unstuck?
