1. I have a confession, too. Even though I enjoyed the message of Ann Voskamp’s book, and I enjoyed aspects of the writing style, I fund myself skimming frequently. I have taken away a commitment to looking for God’s gifts in my everyday life, but I think I might appreciate the DeMoss book more.

  2. Shhhh.

    (Sigh.) I read this book and was GREATLY impacted by it. And then it’s just been sitting on my shelf. I think this one needs to hit the re-read pile, as so many others do. Gratefulness does not come easily or naturally to me, I regret to say. Learning to slow down, enjoy, celebrate and take joy in the small little victories would be….somethin’ else.

  3. This book has been on my TBR list, but I haven’t bought a copy yet hoping I would find it used. I guess I’ll have to break down and order it from Amazon.
    Thanks for the review

  4. This comes at a fantastic time for me. I also need to focus on gratitude. I read Ann Voskamp’s book last year and got a lot out of it. However, her writing style is not my favorite and this sounds like something that would be perfect for me right now.

    *I just realized that’s a very me-centric comment but it’s just a way of saying thanks for the review.

  5. Great review — it makes me want to read this book. It’s a message I need to hear often, and I like DeMoss — or at least, the two books I’ve read by her: Lies Women Believe, and Brokenness: the Heart God Revives.

    There’s so much trivia in life as a mom… None of it is too much in itself, but it has a way of adding up and making me feel like Bilbo Baggins, “thin, sort of stretched, like butter scraped across too much bread.” 🙂
