Thumbs up and applauses!  “Stop Whining, Start praising” has arrived just in time. It focuses on
gratitude, praises and blessings. It explains how to praise, when to praise, who to praise, reasons to
praise and most of all receiving the benefits of praise.

In rich, vivid language, the author, Melinda Ferrari, takes readers on an exciting journey that grips the
attention of youth and adults alike. The book speaks to children, parents, educators, pastors,
congregants, leaders and followers.

“I was glued to the book.   After reading “Stop Whining, Start Praising” the first time, I was so thrilled
with gratitude that I am reading it again - with my family.  I feel so richly blessed by the wisdom in the
book that I have to share it.  In addition, I was pleased to discover that the book is also used to raise
funds for charity.

Melinda Ferrari is a pastoral musician and an innovative school teacher, who has taught English and
played the organ or piano for church services for most of her career. She has worked with both youth
and adults in a multicultural setting  in Jamaica, Mexico and the United States of America.
