How easy it is to feel and be grateful when circumstances are good. But the real test of genuine faith is our heart's response when life is difficult. Today we are facing uncertainty individually and as a nation, and the question before us is whether we will trust, with thankful hearts, the sovereign God who rules over all or succumb to fear and self-pity. Nancy's book on gratitude is a guide worth following in stressful times, for she shows us that giving thanks in all things is the key to a peaceful, joy-filled heart in every circumstance of life.
-Barbara Rainey, cofounder of FamilyLife
Given what Christ has done for us, our lives should overflow with gratitude. Sadly, too often they don't. Choosing Gratitude speaks powerfully to one of our most important issues as individuals, families, and churches. Nancy Leigh DeMoss is biblical, honest, challenging, and practical. I enthusiastically recommend this book.
-Randy Alcorn, bestselling author of If God is Good
