Are you trying to teach your children about gratitude? The Grumble family is here to help! Bestselling authors Tricia Goyer and Amy Parker team up to spread an attitude of gratitude in their new children's picture book "The Grumbles". By teaching kids (and adults) how to approach life with a gracious mindset, and how to seek out the goodness in every situation, they are helping brighten lives in innumerable ways.

Ultimately "The Grumbles" is a sweet, simple, and silly story about how to turn everyday grumbles into gratefulness. Tune in to learn how the book came to be and how to nurture a greater sense of gratitude in your own family.

Some of the topics we discuss:

  • Training your kids to pause and be thankful in small moments throughout the day
  • Creating a habit of peace, grace, and kindness into your day and how to model that for your kids consistently over time
  • Motherhood as a marathon not a sprint 


"We are the models, they see what we're doing..and one person can make a huge difference" 

"It's planting that seed...every time you read this book it brings in the awareness that there is a different way to do this"

"It's the dailiness of being grateful, of kindness, of joy, over time that makes a real impact"

"Raise a child in the way they should go and when they're adults they won't depart from it"
