Do you struggle to give thanks in ALL things? Do you truly understand what it means to ‘Practice Gratitude’? My friend Amber Cullum is here to talk about how practicing gratitude has changed her life for the better.

Amber is a former physical therapist who’s now a stay-at-home mom, podcast host, and speaker. She is the host of the Grace Enough Podcast which has been featured in Christianity Today as one of the 12 podcasts you don’t want to miss. Enjoy the show!
