Develop the Mindset of an Attitude of Gratitude

By Roger Gray & Rodney Gray: I have heard it said or have read some place
that a successful sermon gives the worshipers something to think about,
something to feel and something to do. That is the criteria that we have set
for this book. We want you involved in developing a stronger mindset of an
attitude of gratitude. To achieve that objective we are including some
gratitude exercises.
