Authors Darlene Sala, Luisa Ampil and Bonnie Sala, draw inspiration from their own experiences and life journeys to present messages in Thrive that speak directly to women and their daily struggles in living a purposeful and graceful life. Each entry contains a personal anecdote and teachings based on the Bible.
Darlene Sala shared, “Our prayer is that these readings, these snippets of truth we’ve stumbled upon in our quieter moments with Him, will encourage our readers to press into Him daily as they travel their own journey into grace.”
The book contains more than a hundred entries on forgiveness, hope, prayer, relationships, and more—each with the purpose of encouraging women to thrive in their everyday lives. Each entry addresses various concerns using relatable stories—on depression, decision making, love, adversity and living in faith—lovingly written by its three women authors:
⦁ Darlene Sala is well-known as a pastor’s wife, counsellor, missionary, Bible teacher and co-founder of Guidelines International Ministry. She is also the author of four bestselling books dedicated to guiding women in their everyday lives: Encouraging Words for Women, Inspiring Words for Women, More Precious than Diamonds and Refreshing Words for Busy Women.
⦁ Luisa Ampil has served with Guidelines International Ministry since 1998 and is now the ministry’s director for the media and its Philippine ministry. She is also the producer, writer and voice behind “Mula sa Puso,” a Tagalog radio program on DZAS 702

Noted author of Widow Connection, Miriam Neff, lauds the Salas and Ampil for collaborating on the book: “Darlene, Bonnie and Luisa make an inspirational, intergenerational team. Their insights are precious. Mother, daughter, and friend – they shine together. Though separate in their life journeys, country of origin, pain and spiritual backgrounds, they bond with sisterhood wisdom for us all.”
