31 Days of WHAAAAT? A Thanksgiving Challenge

31 Days of Praise, by Ruth Myers

I know it sounds ridiculous-- "Praise?" 

Why would we praise God when our life has exploded and ripped open our heart? 

Let me assure you Ruth Myers knows what she's praising about: she was widowed, too. These praise prayers are gentle, sacrificial expressions of worship for times when we have no words.

Her first husband suffered intensely from cancer and died at age 32, leaving her with two young children to raise. It wasn't until eight years later she married Warren. They've been missionaries and in ministry with Navigators ever since. I think you'll love the honesty and freshness of their praise!

31 Days . . . helps cultivate grateful hearts and a lifestyle of praise. Divided into a couple sections, the book instructs in how to praise God, plus why to, and provides truth about a person's relationship with God.

But the best part is the section marked Day1 - Day 31. Each day provides 2 - 3 paragraphs of praise that you can read aloud or silently as your own prayer to God--good stuff when grief clouds your mind and it's too hard to pray. 31 Days . . . gives you the words to pray when the pain is so deep you have no words.

God understands, He feels our pain, yet He is good; His loving kindness covers us everyday and He is worthy of our praise even from the depths of dark pain.

Thanksgiving Day is coming soon, so I am challenging myself to lead up to it with this book. has a it in a new style hardcover or eBook here.

Or Amazon has some used paperbacks of it here

I'm not receiving any compensation for this review, I'm just sharing about a resource that has helped me time and time again.
