In this chapter, well look at the habits and attitudes that can bring cheer to your spiritual life along with a closer examination of cheerfulness and some realistic strategies to develop and sustain it. As we have in the first five chapters of this book, we'll also consult Scripture for perspective and insight. Then, I'll end by offering some practical advice and posing some questions for discussion and reflection.
