Gratitude is a choice. If we fail to chose it, by default we choose ingratitude. And once allowed into the heart, ingratitude does not come by itself but with a lot of other seedy companions that only succeed in stealing joy. To not choose gratitude - daily and deliberately - is more costly than we usually realize. And when we do choose a lifestyle of heartfelt, humble gratitude, we are mindful of the benefits received from our gracious Savior and those He has placed around us. By intentionally thanking God and others, bitterness and entitlement are replaced with joy and the humble realization of just how undeserving we really are. Derived from a popular Revive Our Hearts radio series, Choosing Gratitude: Your Journey to Joy challenges and equips the reader to live a life of intention. A life based on thankfulness - for the freedom Christ has provided and for the blessings of others. As a bonus, a 30-day plan of journaling, prayer and activities to help the reader on her path to joy is included.

In her latest book, Michele Howe teaches us how to hone a grateful, grace-filled heart no matter what our circumstances. When we focus on God’s grace and respond with gratitude, we happily discover that supernatural principle of inner joy and contentment—despite whatever life might throw at us. Chapter by chapter, readers will learn how to be thankful, joyful, content, and even happy during life’s hardships. This happens when, as children of God, we train ourselves to view every situation within the lens of eternity. As we learn to default to a grace-filled attitude of gratitude, we honor God by obeying the apostle Paul’s call to “do all things without grumbling or complaining.” When we choose to respond with a faith-driven acceptance rather than resort to grumbling or complaining, God begins (and continues) his supernatural work of sanctification in our hearts.

Gratitude has a way of increasing the good things that come to and from us, as positivity begets and multiplies positivity. Teens are often criticized for being entitled, greedy, spoiled, and ungrateful. Teens who demonstrate a spirit of gratitude also draw people to them and inspire a desire to help them succeed and reach their goals. This, in turn, results in a strong network of connections, superb college recommendations, employment tips, and great job offers. Teachers and librarians will have reason to feel gratitude when they see how well this text meets various informational text reading standards of the Common Core curriculum, including summarizing text, determining a central idea and its supporting details, tracing and evaluating an argument and its specific claims, determining the validity of the author's reasoning and evidence, and determining an author's point of view and purpose.

In a world filled with comparison, confined creativity, limited flexibility, and sustained dissatisfaction, young adults are suffering from a lack of pure passion and zest for life now more than ever. Social media makes things so easy to constantly feel your life is not as good as the person on your Snapchat feed or Instagram scroll, and today’s society puts so much emphasis on being the “perfect” person that adolescents are setting themselves up for an impossible standard to reach. The youth of our generation needs to be reminded that they have the power within themselves to set their own standards and go after their innermost blissful desires to create more thrill and purpose in their lives than they could ever deem possible. Magic in the lives of young adults needs to be reinstalled, dreams need to be reintroduced, and seeds of passion for life needs to be replanted. Be Your Own Hero cultivates a mind-set that the door to success always swings inward, not outward. In order to achieve your external goals, you must work on your inner self. This book aims to help young adults realize that their external empire only goes as far as their internal empire. By building a sense of self heroism and an ability to save themselves versus relying on external factors to do their saving for them, young adults can not only dream bigger but also love and serve bigger—leading them to a life they never thought possible.
