Description

How to grow as thankful women of God.

We are often encouraged to "count our blessings". But truly biblical gratitude is much more than this.

Mary K. Mohler unpacks Scripture to help us grow in gracious gratitude—thanking God for who he is, as well as natural gratitude— thanking him for his blessings. She also helps women to identify and deal with some of the things that hinder them so that they can rediscover the joy of a thankful heart.

This thoroughly Bible-centered unpacking of the reasons for gratitude builds on Mary K. Mohler's 25 years experience in mentoring seminary wives at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.

Discussion questions at the end of each chapter make this book ideal for group use as well as for individuals.

Growing in Gratitude is a must read for anyone who has ever doubted, suffered or just plain coasted in life. Starting in the Garden of Eden and continuing throughout the whole span of Scripture, Mary Mohler invites us to embrace the big-dealness of gratitude for those who know Christ. In straightforward, yet deeply penetrating ways, Mary opens the theological doorway to a grateful heart as graciously as she has opened the door of her home to thousands throughout her years of ministry. With perceptive illustrations, she skillfully wins us over until we are “abounding in thanksgiving” (Colossians 2:7) in happy obedience to God’s Word. This book would be a treasure if only for the truth found in her list of “Ten Ways to Thank the Lord When it Hurts.” But read the whole thing! Both your head and your heart will be lifted up into new paths of gratitude.

Popular mottos and self-help advice on being thankful abound. But Mary K. Mohler takes us deeper to explore the theological root of gratitude and the hindrances that keep us from developing a truly grateful heart. In this book, you'll find solid, effective counsel. So listen up! I'm confident you'll be grateful you did.

Mary Mohler bares her lovely and redeemed heart in this book. And as I read it, I found myself scribbling notes, making book lists from Mary's recommendations, and stopping to pray in both repentance and thanksgiving. I did this because I want the habits and heart of this book to seep into my own. Simple but not simplistic, profound but not inaccessible, this book shows how Christian gratitude, more than list-making and positive thinking, nourishes believers to become more like our Savior, preparing us to be conduits for his grace. As I was reading this book, I felt like I was sitting with Mary in her kitchen, listening, learning, praying, and thanking God for the unity and beauty and power of the gospel to equip us, truly, to every good work, including the good work of thanking him when agonizing circumstances do not change. Although written for women, all Christians will benefit from this book.

“A much needed book!”

(Review written for 'Growing in Gratitude')

I really loved this small book of wisdom and encouragement. Seriously, only 103 pages- this book is jammed with so much encouragement on the theme of thankfulness and gratitude.

Is this book you will find reasons to be grateful in seasons of doubt, pain and suffering and even those moments you wish life would be different. The author, Mary, really encourages you to look at scripture and believe that Jesus is our strength, when we are weak. And that he will provide moments of thankfulness, when when we can’t see a way out.

I really loved her analogy of a throne on a rose.
“Roses are among the most beautiful and fragrant. We have no problem thanking the Lord for the beauty of every rose he allows us to enjoy, each one delicately created by our Creator in vibrant color. Yet I cannot recall even one time when I thanked the Lord for placing sharp thorns along the stems of those beautiful flowers, and I'm guessing you can't either. There is nothing beautiful about those thorns. yet they are not there by accident. God chose to place them there-probably to protect the blooms from animals who may want to eat them.”

This will be a book I pass on and recommend to everyone!

“Great, challenging, gem of a book.”

(Review written for 'Growing in Gratitude')

A challenging book which I took on holiday. I read just one chapter a day in my QT’s each morning, so that I could quietly reflect. I found it inspirational. It is a great little book with lots of helpful practical ideas to think and act more deeply about being grateful. I am going to purchase more copies of this little gem to pass onto the ladies in our church family.
