Publisher's Summary

Gratitude is a choice. If we fail to chose it, by default we choose ingratitude. And once allowed into the heart, ingratitude does not come by itself but with a lot of other seedy companions that only succeed in stealing joy. To not choose gratitude - daily and deliberately - is more costly than we usually realize.And when we do choose a lifestyle of heartfelt, humble gratitude, we are mindful of the benefits received from our gracious Savior and those He has placed around us. By intentionally thanking God and others, bitterness and entitlement are replaced with joy and the humble realization of just how undeserving we really are.

Great take on gratitude in our lives!!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book even though it thoroughly convicted me about my limited gratitude for all that God has done for me. I've always looked for the good in any situation, even those that are devastating because God says "all things work for good for them that love The Lord". I find myself usually thanking him for things like keeping power in a storm, good medical reports, and other daily things. BUT, do I often find myself thanking God for ALL the things in my life? More importantly, do I often find myself thanking God FOR MY LIFe---for all that he has done to purchase my eternal life through his love and sacrifice for me?

There is a pretty thorough, and interesting description of everything that God has done for us, with practical and personal examples from the author's life and the lives of others. The book ends with a thirty day CHALLANGE, including Bible references to read, questions, and journaling suggestions. Wonderful read for everyone. Showing too, that a life of gratitude is a healthier, more joyful life than a life of whining, complaining, or depression.
