How do you find peace if you’re feeling stressed? Does giving thanks mean we ignore our problems and our worries? Bonnie talks about gratitude that doesn’t come from emotional amnesia, but a deeper gratitude that takes place when you open your heart to feel God’s peace and comfort. Most of us have heard that gratitude is good for mental health, but how can we feel gratitude if we’re also feeling anxious and facing difficult trials that bring us heartache?

You will learn that God’s invitation to gratitude involves letting God love you in practical ways to improve your emotional health. Listen to this fascinating episode that avoids cliches & empowers you to feel the goodness of God even through heartache.

Scripture: Give thanks in every circumstance, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Thess 5:18
