31 Days of Cultivating Gratitude

img_7161

There are two kinds of people in this world: grateful and ungrateful. Worshipers and whiners. – from Choosing Gratitude by Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth

Which do you want to be? Do you think that we truly have the choice to make?

I am learning how much gratitude impacts my joy, my peace, my contentment…my life. I recently finished the book The Happiness Dare and this book was so encouraging for me in learning how to CHOOSE joy and happiness. Training my heart and mind to CHOOSE and CULTIVATE gratitude is something I’m praying for God to do in me!

Join me, starting on October 1st, as we seek to be intentional about cultivating the fruit of gratitude this month. Join me on a 31 day journey to cultivating gratitude in our hearts and lives. I will be sharing quotes, journaling prompts, books & resources for cultivating gratitude in our lives. I look forward to hearing YOUR ideas as well!

To Bring on the Journey

We will be discussing each of these things more in detail during the 31 day series, but you might want to grab a few things:

  • a journal (I’m using a moleskin journal that I decorated, I will share resources and a printable cover if you’d like to use it, on day 1 of the series. I bought this set and plan to create them with my kids too!)
  • a Bible
  • Choosing Gratitude by Nancy Leigh Demoss – this book is excellent. I will be sharing quotes and ideas from VARIOUS books, however this one has a 30 day devotional in the back of it, so if you’d like to do that along with us that would be fun!
  • OR this devotional by Ann Voskamp has 60 days in it! I think it would be awesome to do any kind of focus on gratitude this month!
  • A friend recommended this book and I started it with my kids a few days ago — it’s great!! It’s based on Philippians 4:8 so we will be memorizing that passage during the month of October!

Author: Candace Crabtree

I'm just a messed up mama in need of God's fresh new mercies daily. My husband and I live in beautiful East Tennessee with our 3 children. God has taken me on a journey through the valley of depression and is teaching me to pray the Scriptures as a result. I hope and pray that you will be encouraged whenever you stop by this little place on the web.

  1. Frag mich auch immer wieder, was das Faszinierende an diesem Aragorn ist. Ich denke, da spielt auf alle Fälle auch der Schauspieler eine Rolle. Obwohl der für sich genommen, nicht der Star oder so ist. Aber als Aragorn einfach perfekt.
