Susan Lutz. Thankfulness: Even When It Hurts.  Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, April 1st 2002. 22 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

This biblical counseling booklet addresses the issue of being thankful.  Specifically it addresses the need to be thankful to God even when there is life difficulties.  The booklet is part of a series called “Resources for Changing Lives” printed by Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing and this was one of the earlier volumes.  Like other booklets in this series this was helpful.  Personally I have used this particular title for own edification, for counseling as a Pastor, for a devotional with my wife and also I’m planning on reading it together with one of our church’s small group.
