Develop An Attitude of Gratitude Aug 27, 2006
Here's a powerful little book which will help increase the thankfulness in your life. Touching and positive personal stories combine with simple practical advice and Scripture to make this book a solid help for anyone.
As Carole Lewis writes on page 14, "We can bring an attitude of thankfulness to any experience; and when we do, it's like a breath of fresh air rushing in and blowing away the dust of decay. Some people possess an attitude of gratitude more naturally than others. But all of us are called to step onto this path. That's what this book discusses at length. As we learn to clutivate a thankful heart, our grumbling and complaining will cease and be replaced by a spirit that blesses God, blesses those around us and even blesses ourselves. There is an answer to the question of what to do when life doesn't go perfectly: Give thanks in every situation in life."
As a gift or for yourself, anyone can gain from this book.
Becoming more Christ-like in our prayer life... May 27, 2006
...that's what this lovely little book teaches. Our prayer trainer, Jesus, prayed, "I thank you, Lord, that you have heard me." We, too, have so much to be thankful for--and Carole Lewis' book helps us develop gratefulness and humility. I highly recommend this book as a gift for others or yourself.
Authentic and biblical Apr 12, 2006
A Thankful Heart is like a warm hug from this amazing author! Carole Lewis offers readers a glimpse into her own life, revealing a mosaic of sorrow and disappointment, which surprisingly ushers in times of Christian joy. No, she hasn't uncovered a secret remedy to the world's problems; she merely decided to take the Bible verses on thankfulness to heart.
As the current leader of First Place, a Christian weight-loss program, the author understands that the thoughts of the heart greatly influence the rest of the body. Being thankful in all situations is both a command from God as well as a choice to make. As believers gently rest in God's providence and direction, they can confidently praise Him in all circumstances. This inward spiritual trust then transcends to the physical realm, providing a tangible feeling of peace and joy. Yet, it all starts with a conscious decision.
Carole Lewis had to make this decision many times in her life. These pages allow readers to come alongside her as she hears the news of her daughter's death, files for bankruptcy, and provides support to her husband following a diagnosis of cancer. Each of these personal stories resounds with a stark sense of realism. As she reaches out through a veil of tears to embrace the biblical concept of giving thanks in all circumstances, grief gives way to gratitude. These pages literally tremble with the exchange of emotions and the excitement of drawing closer to the Lord in perfect trust.
A Thankful Heart pulses with a sense of authenticity and authority. - Joyce Handzo, Christian Book Previews.com
I have truly been blessed by this book. Jan 25, 2006
What a terrific book. I have read a great many self-help books, both with and without a biblical focus. This is by far the best of them all. Carole gives many examples in each chapter on how to develop and put into practice "a thankful heart." As you read, it all begins to seem so obvious, and is truly life-changing. I thank God and Carole for this wonderful book.
