Title: Grumble Hallelujah
Author: Caryn Dahlstrand Rivadeneira
Release Date: August 31, 2011
Description: If you had told Caryn Dahlstrand Rivadeneira while she was crying on the kitchen floor that she could find a way to praise God in this situation, she wouldn’t have believed you. In fact, she might have thrown something at you. Looking around at a life that was disappointingly different from what she’d dreamed, she couldn’t imagine honestly singing out a hallelujah. But then it occurred to her that, well, maybe she could manage to “grumble” one. Have you been there? During life’s lowest moments, it is so tempting to blame ourselves, our circumstances, or God. But what would happen if we turned to God and managed to praise him instead, in whatever way we could? Might he show up and help us find the things in our lives that he made to be loved? “Grumble Hallelujah” offers humor, candid stories, and solid scriptural backing that will help you see clearly just how your life is meant to be lived–and loved.
Thoughts: Grumbling is something common. When something doesn’t go right it is easier to complain and get angry. When life goes downhill the last thing we want to do is find something to be happy about. Through personal stories from the author the reader can relate times to their own life. This book will help you to find the silver lining in more and more moments in your life.
