One of the difficult challenges associated with pastoring is witnessing the tragic results of people dying spiritually with living water just steps away: "Whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst" (John 4:14). Although most can quote, "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness for they shall be filled," many have never truly experienced it-very few are truly hungry and thirsty for God. This book is a compilation of past articles, sections from other books I've written, and sermons preached at Westside Christian Fellowship-the best-of-the-best. We pray that this collection of targeted topics fuels an intense desire for more of God. Though the road ahead may be uncertain at times, the solid ground beneath will never shift. It's all about Who you know. Desperate for More should be the heart cry of every believer. "Bold, Outspoken, and Prophetic, this book is sure to awaken, convict, and challenge..." -Alex Montoya; Associate Professor of Pastoral Ministries, The Master's Seminary in Sun Valley, California

THERE IS AN UNSPOKEN WORD IN CHRISTIANITY… THAT WORD IS INTIMACY! Deep inside every true child of God is a desire to know Him intimately. Intimacy with God is seldom experienced by God’s people because it is not talked about, we don’t know what it is, and we don’t know how to obtain it. Do you have a hunger in your soul for a deeper experience of God? Has your search for such an experience often led to frustration and more questions? WHEN GOODNESS FINDS YOU invites you to live a life of intimacy with God. RETURN TO A LIFE OF INNOCENCE. FIND THE KIND OF RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD YOU WERE DESIGNED TO ENJOY. DISCOVER INTIMACY IN SIMPLE WAYS. IGNITE THE FIRE IN YOUR SOUL BY TAKING THE STEPS OF A CHILD. FIND OUT HOW TO POSITION YOURSELF FOR GOD’S GOODNESS TO FIND YOU. “Intimacy with God isn’t a topic that can be written about from a merely academic perspective. Scott Boucher communicates that with an ease and candor that can only come through a man who writes from experience. If you want the often-misunderstood concept of intimacy with God to come alive, do yourself a favor and read this book.” —Shawn Hennessy, lead pastor, Life Church, Green Bay, WI “I highly recommend this book; it is birthed out of many years of Scott’s experience.” —Rev. Arni Jacobson, international director of leadership, Grace International “For those who have not yet experienced the pleasure and joy of partaking of the Lord in this way, you are in for the treat of your life. I believe this is the most important aspect of our Christian faith, and sadly, the most missed experience for those who call themselves Christian.” —John Kieffer, Wisconsin State Facilitator, Mission America Coalition

The Daniel Prayer is born deep within your soul, erupts through your heart, and pours out on your lips, words created by and infused with the Spirit of God quivering with spiritual electricity. It’s really not an everyday type of prayer. It’s a prayer birthed under pressure. Heartache. Grief. Desperation. It can be triggered by a sudden revelation of hope. An answer to prayer, a promise freshly received, a miracle that lies just over the horizon. Join Anne in a thrilling discovery of prayer that really works. This book will help you pray effectively for your nation, for your families, and for yourself.

It’s essential to uncover the current malady affecting the organized Christian Church today, not its structuring and not necessarily its organizational approach, but present to it His solution, which has never been hidden or even veiled in His Word, which is that we must return to the true roots of Christianity, which is founded on the individual discipleship of each member of His body, just as Jesus designed it and modeled it for us while He ministered on this earth. It passed the acid test of resiliency when it was mercilessly persecuted, as its disciples applied the principles as instituted and instructed by our Lord for all of us to display and to do. I encourage anyone to do a Bible search for the word “disciple” and “believer” and see firsthand that these words are not interchangeable or used in the same context when referring to a specific person who’s known to be committed to our Lord, versus referring to a generalization in the third person to someone or a group who’s aware about the existence of the real living God. God’s remedy it’s still available today to anyone who truly desires to attain it and can decipher that it’s only through discipleship that a true believer is infected with the enthusiasm, zeal, and eagerness in the commitment to fulfill John 8:31 and Matthew 28:19, reaching to those around them who thirst and hunger for the things of God, and in that process, experience the life He promises we can live now. It’s time to abandon, once and for all, the current practices of mass-producing “supporters,” and inscribe it into our minds that the Great Commission was not to make believers but to make disciples. The early church didn't churn out cheerleaders and advocates but bona fide disciples, taught and equipped according to Ephesians 6:10–17, who then, as members of the body of Christ, led by example, transforming them into a formidable, most powerful and effective force the Roman Empire had ever seen. Again, I want to reiterate that I am not against the church, as organized by the apostles, but want to revolutionize it, where discipleship is the top priority and purpose for its existence. I am critical of the current organized version that has taken the place of the real church, that nowadays is wasting vast resources and investing them in huge entertainment amphitheaters, and often dilute, distort, and obscure the true message and method to attain this new life established by our Lord. Unless this change happens, we can’t truly reach and change a lost world. Our Real Life in Christ seeks to help those who are experiencing that gnawing sensation that there is much more to God’s Word than what is being offered by those weekly sermons in churches today.
