In her book, In Spite of Myself, you won t receive a quick fix or platitudes; you'll get real encouragement that will make you WANT to praise Him intentionally every day. --Dawnita Fogleman, Author, Star Chronicles: A Bible-Based Study of the Stars

From my understanding, author, Katie Horner gives a personal testimony each day of everyday and some not so everyday difficult situations. In each, she shows how the Lord has shown her to praise Him despite herself. Each day can be done within 20 minutes but my wife would still be talking about certain parts of the book later in the day. Simple layout and a place for personal reflection, this study is deep but also laid-back. Definitely would recommend this study to any individual or even group of ladies.
A thoughtfully written daily devotional that provides an opportunity to reframe your perspective from pessimism to optimism and glass half empty to glass half full. This book is highly encouraging, inspiring, as well as thought-and-prayer-provoking.
Sharing candidly from her personal experiences and opportunities, Katie zealously models and encourages her readers to intentionally choose to praise in spite of circumstances or uncertainties.
One of my favorite quotes:
“You know how you expect things to happen and yet you’re shocked when they do? I gain needless anxiety, lack of peace in my soul, and often in my home, when I fail to trust God and praise him for his faithfulness, provision, and promises kept, in spite of my doubts, fears, and feelings in the moment.”

I sensed this whole book is covered in prayer.
The four weeks address the topics of using praise when serving God in hard times, in circumstances you can’t control, when parenting children and in times of financial famine. A great book to use on your own or in a small group.I plan to suggest it to a group of young moms that meet in our church. The book would fit them well and even provides free video lessons that complement each day, free coloring pages, and even an “I Choose Praise” music playlist.
