Another installment of giving better answers to the questions asked at Debi Pearl’s site message board for the book ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’. Many young ladies ask questions on all sorts of different subjects brought up by the book. There was just one big problem, many of the answers stray into either the outright bad and emotionally unhealthy to dangerous. Yes, typical Debi Pearl borderline abusive. Here’s what we’re going to be doing here at NLQ. Every week, once or twice a week, I’ll be posting up one of the questions from the message board and ask you, our readers, to answer that poor soul’s question in a way that is logical, rational and the best possible solution, in other words 180 degree turn from Debi and friends always all spelling and grammar in the posting is unchanged from the original author.
On to today’s question:
I noticed recently that I have been lacking joy in my life and feel some discontentment about various things, so I did a Bible study on joy and man was it eye-opening! I realized that in most examples joy comes from being thankful and praising God, but of course we don’t always “feel” that way. I’ve read several of the articles/listened to stuff the Pearls have published on how to train children to be thankful, but I was wondering if anyone has tips on how you can help yourself become more thankful. Thanks for ANY and ALL responses, I would love to hear everyone’s comments!
A lot of advice going on. Not all of it good necessarily. What would you advise? is it even a necessary thing, is it emotionally healthy?
