Radical Gratitude: Discovering Joy Through Everyday Thankfulness

3.76  ·  Rating Details ·  37 Ratings  ·  6 Reviews
Happily, developing a habitually grateful heart is not a discipline to be mastered or another reason to feel guilty and stressed. A grateful heart is a gift of grace. This book is not about seven quick steps to spiritual power. The author has found, over and over, that the rhythm of real divine renewal beats in the pulse of a grateful human heart.

I was hoping to catch a bigger

The author tells many stories, which I enjoyed and felt they really helped drive home the points the author was trying to make. But at the end of each story I found myself a little bored going back to point.
I appreciate and agree with the explicitly gospel centered motive for gratitude explained in the book.
I guess I have not

This is a wonderful book full of personal illustrations drawn from the life of both the author, the lives of those she's met, and the scriptures. You will be encouraged and drawn towards focusing upon the One from whose hand all things come.

I love reading books which help me to focus on living a life of simplicity, contentment, and gratitude. This one is on the shelf now.

As soon as I finished this book, I wanted to start all over at the beginning and reread it all over again.
