Research says increased gratitude significantly transforms individuals, homes and communities.
Do you want in on that?
Christian writer Ann Voskamp poetically tells the tale of life transformation through lifestyle gratitude in her book One Thousand Gifts. It is a powerful read.
I invite you to check out her ten minute video (click here) as she artfully links the science of gratitude with real life transformation of hearts, homes, and communities. She is inviting you, daring you, to join her on a gratitude journey…that transformed her life and many others. I’ve watched it over 15 times and still find it inspiring.
Today—I am thankful that two years ago God introduced me to Ann Voskamp and her gratitude dare. I’ve been on this gratitude journey ever since and can tell you it continues to be transformational!!
Are you ready to take the “Gratitude Dare”?
This weekend, January 6-8 you can pick up your gratitude journal and begin writing three things each day for which you are grateful. This is a wonderful conversation and activity for children and youth, too! It is all part of our new preaching series “Revealed” based on Philippians 4 and the key verse: “Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I say rejoice!”
Blessings on your Gratitude Journey in 2018!
