Description

As women, 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) — and to identify and deal with some of the things that hinder us — to help us rediscover the joy of a thankful heart.

This thoroughly Bible-centred 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.

This title is available in braille, large print or on DAISY audio CD by contacting Torch Trust's Client Services team on 01858 438260.

Commendations

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.

Growing in Gratitude gives fresh and carefully applied insights into a familiar topic. The up-to-date observations (e.g. the impact smartphones are having on our social interactions) coupled with well explained quotes from historic giants in the faith make this a very helpful and timely reminder that we have every reason to be thankful.

It was a real joy to listen to Mary's wisdom from years of learning thankfulness. There is helpful application throughout and I loved the fact that she encouraged us to stop and pray, putting into action what we're learning. Each chapter has just two study questions at the end – a valuable and manageable tool to help us think further, or study with friends. I found Mary's chapters on hindrances to gratitude fresh and insightful. I have been challenged by her shrewd observations, and genuinely can say this book has helped me to be growing in gratitude.

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.

Customer reviews

“Great, challenging, gem of a book.”

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.
