Book Review: The Grumble-Free Year by Tricia Goyer

The Grumble-Free Year: Twelve Months, Eleven Family Members, and One Impossible Goal by [Goyer, Tricia]

The Grumble-Free Year: Twelve Months, Eleven Family Members, and One Impossible Goal

USA Today bestselling author Tricia Goyer and her family of eleven embark on a yearlong quest to eliminate grumbling from their home and discover a healthier, more thankful approach to life together.
The Goyer home--with two parents, eight kids, and one eighty-eight-year-old grandmother with dementia--is never without noise, mess, activity, and, often, complaining. And it's not just the kids grumbling. After adding seven children in less than six years through adoption, the Goyer family decided to move out of survival-mode and into unity- and growth-mode. They decided to tackle the impossible: a grumble-free year.
With grade-schoolers, teenagers, and a grandmother who believes children should be seen and not heard, plenty of room exists for flunking the challenge. Add to that seven children being homeschooled together in close quarters, and what could possibly go awry?
In The Grumble-Free Year, the Goyers invite readers into their journey as they go complaint-free and discover what it looks like to develop hearts of gratitude. They share their plans, successes, failures, and all the lessons they learn along the way, offering real-life action steps based in scripture so that readers get not just a front-row seat to the action but also an opportunity to take the challenge themselves and uncover hearts that are truly thankful.

My thoughts:

The Grumble-Free Year by Tricia Goyer, made me stop and think about my grumblings through out the day and how could I turn that around.  Really, I thought I was perfect but then I read and thought, oh yes, I've said/done that.  

I loved that Tricia Goyer gave us real life situations in her home and the solutions they tried.  With so many children in the family the grumbling happened many times a day so it the grumbling didn't stop overnight.  She gave helpful scriptures and ideas to help with grumbling after each chapter. 

What a insightful book. It's a great book to help your family enjoy life with more peace and respect for others.  

This book was given to me by the author and this is my honest opinion.
