Reading this book is dangerous. In the right hands, God may use it to open deaf ears, heal wounded hearts, and even raise the dead. The unique beauty of From Groaning to Owning is the author’s approach. Gregg doesn’t beat you up or give you a long to-do list, but he helps lure you into God’s glorious presence by sharing story after story of His goodness. If you’re not careful, you’ll find yourself longing for real, abundant life, and being renewed. I can’t recommend this book enough. Remember, you’ve been warned.

From Groaning to Owning is a clear word of inspired instruction for everyone who wants to know how faith works. It will help you go from frustration with God to adventures with God. Faith in God is a quiet trust, but as Gregg communicates, it is also being desperate enough to take the bold risk.
DIRECTOR OF EVANGELISM, INTERNATIONAL HOUSE OF PRAYER

A few months ago I received an early manuscript of the book you are now holding in your hands. Authored by my friend Gregg Dennington, I proceeded to read From Groaning To Owning in two settings and write an endorsement for it. I thought I had sent it to Taiwan, but a few months later, Gregg let me know he hadn’t received it. Searching through all my files, I still couldn’t find my original endorsement, and thus proceeded to read the manuscript a second time. This “oversight” ended up – in the sovereignty of God – to be at least a double blessing to my heart, as this second reading caused that much more insight to flow into my heart as I pondered the truth contained in its pages.
From Groaning to Owning is not a flavor-of-the-month book filled with clever one-liners and cute Christian clichés. Both times I read through it, I was tempted to rush by concepts like “inheritance,” the “goodness of God,” and His love, power, etc., as these are usually considered basic to the Christian life. Elementary principles, you might say. But as I slowed down and the Truth—with a capital T—began to sink in, I was at once profoundly broken, blessed, and built up. I found my soul rising in faith that I could move away from the “groaning” for my inheritance in Christ, to an experiential “owning” of it.
Gregg’s cancer experience turned up the heat on his relaxed confidence in God and gave him a whole new perspective—not only in comprehending the five simple truths manifested in the book, but in apprehending them by faith, a faith that he maintains is simple trust in the goodness of God. There is great power in declaring the truths that God has said about you, His power and presence in you, and His desire to work through you. The personal pain Gregg went through in his own life underlines the crucial need and desperation in his soul to not only desire, but to declare, that these truths that are his, are now, by extension, ours for the owning!
I am a better leader and Christian for having read this manuscript two times, and if I lose this endorsement I will be happy to read it a third time! My prayer is that this book would have a great readership so that folks like us who are groaning would spend much more time owning the great things God has for us!

When I heard that Gregg was writing a book, I was excited. When I read the manuscript, I was blown away. It’s so much more than a book. From Groaning To Owning is a banquet table full of powerful principles, testimonies and illustrations that you can feast on over and over again – a road map to abundant life to be shared with family and friends.
PACIFIC DIRECTOR FOR YWAM FRONTIER MISSIONS
From Groaning To Owning encouraged me to pursue God’s presence with fresh enthusiasm. I was reminded that this is the very foundation of our true identity – one that leads us to boldly step out in His great purposes, releasing His kingdom wherever we go. What an awesome book! Thank you, Gregg.
PROJECT LEADER AT CHURCH INTEGRATION MINISTRY
Gregg Dennington has expressed something in From Groaning To Owning that all of us need to be aware of, our free-will option to go after all that Jesus promised, and to do it wholeheartedly. In this challenging book, Gregg opens up his personal journey to us – a journey that can encourage us all in our Christian walks. Knowing what Gregg and Eva have been through in their missions work in Taiwan helps to explain why God has given them a platform to minister beyond their thriving church, influencing the world with their example of what God can do through consecrated lives.
FOUNDING PASTOR OF OPEN DOOR CITY CHURCH
With his book From Groaning To Owning, Gregg Dennington seeks to help those “groaning” Christians who are not yet experiencing the life that God has promised them, challenging them to develop a deeper hunger for God and a fresh breakthrough in His presence.
The greatest impact of the book lies in the real-life testimony of this “ordinary” author being transformed into an “extraordinary” believer who walks with greater passion and power in life. His story is such an encouraging invitation to all of us, an example that inspires us with the hope that we can experience the very same transformation in our own lives. And that is all possible because this book is not focused on learning a better technique, but on learning to receive a greater measure of God’s goodness, love, and acceptance. More than that, it guides us to develop a right view of ourselves as taught in the Bible – a view that helps form the basis for stepping out into a supernatural lifestyle where God is able to release His awesome power through our lives.
In describing his personal journey, Gregg is both transparent and easy to identify with. He walks us through the scriptures, bolstered by examples from his own life and ministry, as well as the lives of other hungry believers on the same supernatural road. From Groaning To Owning is written with humor, self-deprecation, a sense of joy mixed with both wisdom and depth, and a very light hand. Gregg has written a fantastic book that has both blessed and inspired me in my own hunger for the more of God.
