Gratitude is a choice.  If we fail to chose it, by default we choose ingratitude.  And once allowed into the heart, ingratitude does not come by itself but with a lot of other seedy companions that only succeed in stealing joy.  To not choose gratitude - daily and deliberately - is more costly than we usually realize.  And when we do choose a lifestyle of heartfelt, humble gratitude, we are mindful of the benefits received from our gracious Savior and those He has placed around us. 

By intentionally thanking God and others, bitterness and entitlement are replaced with joy and the humble realization of just how undeserving we really are.  Derived from a popular Revive Our Hearts radio series,  Choosing Gratitude:  Your Journey to Joy challenges and equips the reader to live a life of intention.  A life based on thankfulness - for the freedom Christ has provided and for the blessings of others.

As a bonus, a 30-day plan of journaling, prayer and activities to help the reader on her path to joy is included.

Heartfelt Thanks

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 DeMoss Wolgemuth is biblical, honest, challenging, and practical. I enthusiastically recommend this book.
-Randy Alcorn, bestselling author of If God is Good
