Gratitude is an attitude that helps you see the message in the mess, the testimony in the test, and the profit in the pain. Once you get it right by inculcating an attitude of gratitude, things change—first within you, and eventually around you.


Inspiration for Writing

The deep compassion I felt for people’s suffering during the dark seasons of the COVID-19 pandemic inspired my writing.

  • Relentless Gratitude is a book baked and shaped by my past experience of adversity.
  • It captures my passionate presentation of gratitude as a resilience factor and a significant contributor to good mental health.
  • In writing, I was moved by the deep spiritual understanding that gratitude is a big deal to God, is deeply pleasing to Him, and has far-reaching ramifications on all aspects of our lives and relationships.
