Growing In Gratitude: Rediscovering the Joy of a Thankful Heart
|Publisher||Good Book Company|
As women, we are often encouraged to "count our blessings". But truly biblical gratitude is much more than this.
Mary K. Mohler unpacks Scripture to help us grow in gracious gratitude (thanking God for who he is) as well as natural gratitude (thanking him for his blessings) — and to identify and deal with some of the things that hinder us — to help us rediscover the joy of a thankful heart.
This thoroughly Bible-centred unpacking of the reasons for gratitude builds on Mary K. Mohler's 25 years experience in mentoring seminary wives at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.
Discussion questions at the end of each chapter make this book ideal for group use as well as for individuals.
