Gratitude Challenge Day 10

Good Morning, Everyone! Today is Day 10 of the Gratitude Challenge! Check out today’s Gratitude Challenge video HERE.

Can you believe Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away? This is one of America’s favorite holidays. Unfortunately, there is also some negativity surrounding it. In my book and in the video, I mention how the Black Friday sales can create fights at the stores. Another thing that might also put a damper on this day is conflicts within the family. This can make Thanksgiving feel more of a burden than a gift. As we prepare our homes and our kitchens for this day, try to keep in mind that while we might not be able to change everyone, we can change our own attitudes by practicing gratitude. And we can pray that this in turn will have an impact on those around us. Too often we let those around us bring us down. But we have to learn to be the light that brings other people up. We get to decide how we will feel. So today let’s choose to be happy. Please share in the comments if anything in today’s reading or video hit home with you!

Gratitude Challenge Day 9

Good Morning, Everyone! Today is Day 9 of the Gratitude Challenge! Check out today’s Gratitude Challenge video HERE.

One thing I had to work on while learning to live with gratitude, was my own negative thoughts about myself. I was my own worst critic. This type of behavior can be very debilitating. So I knew I had to change my thoughts if I ever wanted to move forward. Do you participate in a lot of negative self-talk? Are you willing to change it today?

Gratitude Challenge Day 8

Good Morning, Everyone! Today is Day 8 of the Gratitude Challenge! Check out today’s Gratitude Challenge video HERE.

On day 8, I mention that first thing in the morning, my thoughts tended to go in a negative direction. But one day I thought to myself, “What if God took away all the things in my life that I didn’t appreciate it?” This helped turn my thought pattern around and I started thanking God for everything I could think of. What is your thought pattern first thing in the morning? Are you a morning person or a grumbler? If it’s the latter, how can you change it?

Day 08

Gratitude Challenge Day 7

Good Morning, Everyone! Today is Day 7 of the Gratitude Challenge! Check out today’s Gratitude Challenge video HERE.

On Day 7, I talk about a difficult time in my life. We all go through difficult times. That is just part of life. Everyone’s difficulties look different. But if we try, perhaps we can still find something to be thankful for out of that situation. In Romans 8:28 it says that “…God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God…” This comes straight from the Word of God. But we might have to make a choice as to whether we are going to believe it or not. Faith means we have to trust God, even when we can’t understand why things are happening as they are.

Can you think of a time in your life that you would not like to repeat? Looking back on the situation, is there anything you can give thanks for now? Please share in the comments if anything in today’s reading or video hit home with you!

Gratitude Challenge Day 6

Good Morning, Everyone! Today is Day 6 of the Gratitude Challenge! Check out today’s Gratitude Challenge video HERE.

There have been countless studies showing how gratitude can improve both your physical health and your mental health. It is one thing to read about this. But it is completely different when you experience it for yourself, as I did. And you will too. Perhaps you already are starting to see the benefits? Over the past few days of this journey, have you felt happier when writing down things you were grateful for? Please share in the comments if anything in today’s reading or video hit home with you!

Gratitude Challenge Day 4

Good Morning, Everyone! Today is Day 4 of the Gratitude Challenge! Check out today’s Gratitude Challenge video HERE.

Sometimes when we try to make a change in our lives, it is not as simple as snapping our fingers and then instantly everything will be better. At times we have to dig a little deeper to find any underlying roadblocks that are holding us back. And that is what today’s message is about. So take a moment to think about anything in your own life that might be holding you back.

Gratitude Challenge Day 3

Today is Day 3 of the Gratitude Challenge. Have you read chapter 3 this morning? Do you have a tendency to complain? I think many of us do and we don’t even realize it. In today’s world, it takes a lot of effort to stay positive. But it is possible. Especially when we write down the things we are thankful for. This forces us to look around for good things in our lives. Share in the comments if you anything in this chapter hit home with you.

Here is today’s video.

It can be easy to allow life to bring us down with our busy schedules, constant chaos in the news, and daily frustrations. This causes us to lose sight of our gratitude and ultimately our peace. So what better time to have a gratitude challenge? The month of November when America celebrates Thanksgiving!

I know this Gratitude Challenge is going to be a lot of fun and life changing. So don’t miss it! Here are links to follow me throughout the challenge:
