Gifts of Gratitude

Thanksgiving is one week away. For us, it has been a month of reflection on gratitude. What are we thankful for? What has God done for us this year?

We are extremely blessed. Sure, we have our troubles like anyone, but we have a house over our heads, electricity, three wonderful boys, and so much more. Yes, there are health issues, but we also realize that God is in control. It is time to put faith in Him instead of trying to do it alone.

Choosing Gratitude: Your Journey to Joy by Nancy Leigh DeMoss

Gratitude

Description from Amazon:

Gratitude is a choice. If we fail to chose it, by default we choose ingratitude. And once allowed into the heart, ingratitude does not come by itself, but with other seedy companions that only succeed in stealing joy.

Derived from a popular Revive Our Hearts radio series, Choosing Gratitude: Your Journey to Joy challenges and equips the reader to live a life of intention, a life based on thankfulness for the freedom Christ has provided and for the blessings of others.

By intentionally thanking God and others, bitterness and entitlement are replaced with joy and the humble realization of just how undeserving we really are.

To not choose gratitude is more costly than we usually realize. When we do choose a lifestyle of heartfelt, humble gratitude, we are mindful of the benefits received from our gracious Savior and those He has placed around us, and our joy becomes full.

Includes a bonus 30-day plan of journaling, prayer, and activities to help the reader on her path to joy

God Gave Us Thankful Hearts by Lisa Tawn Bergren


Description from Amazon:

Adventurous Lil Pup is bummed that hibernating season will soon be coming to the Great North Woods. Why should so many of his friends have to go in for the winter and leave Lil Pup without pals? Mama reminds her little wolf that not all animals hibernate, and how he can be grateful for the beautiful autumn season – for jumping in leaf piles, eating apple treats, and celebrating the wonders of fall with his forest friends.  And she points out…

“I think the trick to having a thankful heart is thinking about the things that make us happy, rather than the things that don’t.”

As Mama and Lil Pup explore, she reminds him that God is the giver of all good things. Lil Pup learns that even when something fun comes to an end; his heart can be thankful when he sets his mind on the best things in his life.

This inviting addition to the best-selling God Gave Us series, with nearly 2.5 million books sold, helps little ones to understand how giving thanks warms hearts and brings joy.
