Infuse spirituality and thankfulness into your daily life with this beautiful gratitude journal that offers a simple way to lower stress and improve happiness.
Scripture says, “In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” But we could all use a little help actually making room for gratitude among our everyday busyness and concerns. 52 Weeks of Gratitude offers you a space to record and reflect on your blessings each week as you focus through the year on four major themes: Home, Community, Faith, and Beauty.
With its lovely full-color photographs and illustrations, this textured hardcover book is a perfect keepsake. The weekly format offers just the right amount of encouragement to inspire, motivate, and create a grateful heart in all who write in its pages.
Disclaimer: Although I received a copy of this book from the publisher, the words and opinions below are my own.
Hands up: who’s had a problem with being grateful this year? Last year seemed to fly by, which was bad when I needed it to go slow. In contrast, it feels like 2020 has dragged. There have been personal tragedies, country-wide issues, and global problems. It’s no wonder we’ve experienced times when the last emotion we feel is gratitude.
“We all have the power to choose an attitude of gratitude,” starts this new release from Ink and Willow. The real question, in my opinion, is whether we want to choose it or not. The book has four sections, each covering a different aspect of life. Each week has a double page spread and features a Bible verse, a reflection, and a suggestion of how to respond. There’s plenty of room to write; the pages almost too pretty to cover in handwriting. (If your writing is like mine, it’s suffered over the years due to neglect and lack of practice.) Still, I’ll put it beside my bed, along with my 5-year journal, with the hope that it’ll inspire me to better days as we start 2021.
