Inspirational communicator Nancy Hicks describes four “camps” of Christians who wallow in the bad news (our fallen-ness), while disgruntled Christians and non-Christians alike are watching and thinking: If that’s what it means to be a Christian, no thanks! Frankly, these versions of the Gospel aren’t good. So, those watching are left wondering: How are we to live?

Meant to Live offers a vision on humanity’s calling and a way to live a genuine life gloriously into the Good News! Nancy combines personal stories with biblical wisdom and offers a revisit of the Gospel. She offers a fresh view on humanity’s glory as seen in the Gospel and an honest diagnosis of the four main “camps” often found in the Church. Nancy also helps readers identify an honest assessment of self. Meant to Live is a practical guide to living in light of the Gospel and is an inspired and energized focus on the core calling in Christians’ lives.




“Complacent Christianity is all around us... and in us. Nancy takes us on her vulnerable journey to authentically being ‘awake and alive in Christ for life’! Don’t miss this!”

– Mary Beth Roe, QVC TV Host

“How do we recover from this mad malady of passive faith? We need a remedy. And there is one —it’s Fire. Holy fire comes in a prophetic utterance, a burning bush, a raging cadence of a deep ancient hymn. It’s in the soft voice of a child calling you back to yourself, camel-haired, wild men preaching in deserts, and, it turns out, in Nancy Hicks. A Canadian/American soprano soloist, TV personality, wife and mother, speaker and teacher infused with a God-breathed calling. She’s got a passion to set us all on fire for God!”

– Danielle Strickland, Author, international speaker, and founder of Communications, Inc.


“When I first met Nancy Hicks she floored me with her enthusiasm! Her love for God encouraged and inspired me. Our connection drew me closer to her intimacy with the God of the Universe. You, like I, can be running over with the love of God and the joy of a relationship with Him when you read the epic book written by my friend, Nancy Hicks. As she speaks you will want to listen.  You can fall in Love with Jesus by reading Nancy’s heart!”

 – Dr. Thelma Wells, D.D., Founder of A Woman of God Ministries, Author, International speaker, professor

"The glory of God is reserved for God alone. It’s strange how this statement can actually cause God’s people to pull back and stand down. But Nancy unpacks this theological matter in a very accessible way and helps us rise up and come alive. Read her defense for God’s glory in His people. We need more female leaders writing from this perspective today."

– Suellen Roberts, Founder and President of Christian Women in Media Association


“This book is filled with good stories, good advice and good Biblically based theology. Even though it was written by someone who’s life is committed to empowering women for leadership, men will find the book a very practical guide for living the Christian life in today’s world.”

– Tony Campolo, PhD., Professor Emeritus, Eastern University

Meant to Live is full of Nancy Hicks’ authentic expression of following Jesus with fervor. It is her deep, deep desire for followers of Jesus to live out their faith with passion and purpose. But I “warn” you: Nancy’s enthusiasm is contagious!

– Bob Snyder MD, President, IHS Global
