Read from March 22 to June 06, 2011

I read this book as part of my Lent project this year. It's about living your life by giving thanks to God, and recognizing his presence/gifts in everything around you. It's about being grateful, even amidst the stress of every day life, and how that can change your perspective and bring you closer to God. It has a great message - found myself jotting certain phrases down while I was listening. Her writing is not great though, which is why this book only gets 3 stars. There were times when I thought she'd made a great point, and she'd end on that. Instead she'd go on to say the same thing again about 15 different ways, and I'd feel like the point almost gets lost in the extra 5 minutes of reading. The book could have been about 2/3 as long as it was and been a lot better. But again - great message.
