Do you ever just want someone to help you figure life out--to tell you how to win at work, what guys to stay away from, and what jeans rock your body shape? This book is the perfect cocktail of sass and down-to-earth guidance to navigate your way to the life you want to live.

With so much information at your fingertips, real success, good dates, and true friendships can often feel out of reach. Packed with lessons learned from her own mistakes and heartache, Bianca Juarez Olthoff is your guide (minus the cargo shorts and tacky hat) in avoiding unnecessary detours on the path to your best self.

With her signature wit, engaging stories, and brilliant insights from a counselor friend, Bianca gives spot-on advice for adulting, career, relationships, and faith. Following the biblical story of Ruth and Naomi, Bianca's humorous and honest anecdotes will empower you to create a successful life and discover all you can be.

This curated manual for the modern woman will help you:

Connect with a mentor, let go of bad friendships, and find a relationship worth keeping
Trust the goodness of God even in loss, betrayal, and unanswered questions
Take initiative, do hard things, and achieve meaningful success
Fall in love with God's Word and see the Bible come alive

Bianca will show you that though life is tough, you are too.

Review quote

While it's tempting to gather up the hurts and regrets of the past and walk through life feeling disillusioned and sad, that's not truly living. And that's why we need a friend like Bianca. In her wise and relatable way, she speaks powerful truth while guiding us out of negative habits and debilitating tendencies. What's happened in the past doesn't get to dictate what's up ahead when we have Jesus. If you want to look forward to an exciting future, this book is a must-read! * Lysa TerKeurst, #1 New York Times bestselling author and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries * Bianca's book is like the coolest and realest big sister, speaking truth to our generation! Her practical, helpful, and hilarious life tips will help readers become the best version of themselves - the selves God intended them to be. * Sadie Robertson, author, speaker & founder of Live Original * Bianca has been a friend of mine for a long time. She loves God and expresses that love in practical ways. This book is chock-full of ideas to help you navigate your life with faith, resilience, and joy. * Bob Goff, Chief Balloon Inflator and author of Love Does * How to Have Your Life Not Suck is one of those books that will empower the next generation. Layered with biblical truth and modern-day examples, Bianca dives deep into the heart and provides practical handles for dealing with life. Funny and relevant, her words will help many and serve as a reminder that we all need some tips and tools to have our lives not suck. * Lisa Bevere, New York Times bestselling author and cofounder of Messenger International * No one wants to have a bad day or be in a foul mood, but we often allow our thinking and behavior to lead us back to these well-traveled roads with a kind of spiritual amnesia. Your life doesn't have to be like Groundhog's Day over and over again; you can choose for it to not suck if you want to, and Bianca will show you how. * Levi Lusko, pastor of Fresh Life and author of Through the Eyes of a Lion and I Declare War * With clarity, humor, and practical application, Bianca gently encourages the next generation to grow up well. I can't wait to see how this book helps people mature and step into all God has called them to. * Jasmine Star, world-renowned photographer, entrepreneur, and digital influencer * Energizing. Hilarious. Helpful. Bianca Olthoff is the best friend we all long for, the one who will walk us through the treacherous territory of adulthood. How to Have Your Life Not Suck is jam-packed with wisdom and wit to help guide us through life, love, and everything in between. Grab a girlfriend and put this book at the top of your reading list today. * Shelley Giglio * Bianca Oltoff is consistently encouraging but won't let you get away with anything. This book is that kind of friend, too. She has put on these pages what she would say to you over a coffee or from the treadmill next to you or in a voice memo that you play before you walk into a big meeting. I'm sure you're going to love this book because it's what being friends with Bianca is really like: the best. * Annie F. Downs, bestselling author of 100 Days to Brave and host of the That Sounds Fun podcast *
