Growing in Gratitude: Rediscovering the Joy of a Thankful Heart

The Good Book



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 centered 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.

Entitlement is the death of gratitude, and so no wonder our age is awash in unthankfulness. By contrast, the Christian life is a life of gratitude (how could it be otherwise when we are saved by God s grace alone!), but being thankful is easier said than done through all the changing scenes of life, in trouble and in woe. Mary Mohler addresses this vital subject here, positively helping us grow in gratitude as she points us to God s Word. I m thankful for Mary, and I m thankful for her study of Bible-based, grace-empowered thankfulness in this book, Growing in Gratitude, and her encouragement of us in it!
