This is going to be difficult for me but I think I'm up to the challenge.

On Wings of Praise

Pacific Press • 1991

Kay Rizzo describes her "spiritual winter"--years of playing church, longing to trust God wholly, but never quite grasping how to do so.

"I discovered that praise was a choice, not a response," Rizzo writes. And her conscious decision to praise God in all things had a effect on both her personal and spiritual life.

Joy replaced depression.

Trust replaced fear.

"Prayer combined with praise changed my heart," Kay writes. "It will change yours, too."
