A few more excerpts

...A grateful woman will be a breath of fresh air in a world contaminated by bitterness and discontentment. And the person whose gratitude is a by-product of and a response to the redeeming grace of God will showcase the heart of the gospel in a way that is winsome and compelling.

...God's desire is not just to see us doing grateful things but to see us doing grateful things out of the overflow of a truly grateful heart.

...How grateful to God are you when no one else is looking?

-Nancy Leigh DeMoss

"Let all those rejoice who put their trust in You...
Let those who love your name be joyful in You."
Psalms 5:11
