Complaints and grumbling are all around us today, and inside of most of us. Tricia Goyer and her family set out on a year’s effort to stop the grumbling they had come to fall back on. In it, they learned more about the cause of complaining, and how God has much better things than grumbling in mind for us.
When I saw this book, I was immediately interested in it as I have been doing something along those lines. It has not been as formal as theirs, but I’ve noticed how my grumbling stops me from being thankful to God for what I have. Reading along with their journey gives me a different perspective on the situation, and seeing things that worked for them gives me ideas to try in my own life.
Each chapter is easy to understand and, though not necessarily easy to put into practice, they are easy to understand. The book is aimed at parents and families, but the idea of replacing grumbling with thankfulness will help in any relationship.
I received a complimentary copy from the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions are my own.
