We are entering the crazy rush of the holiday season soon. Next week marks Thanksgiving and then immediately following is Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and countless sales from now until forever. With so much spending, with so much buying, with so much emphasis on things, it’s hard to remember what we should truly be grateful for in life. Never before has there been a need to cultivate a Thanksgiving heart in yourself and in that of your children and home, and not just for the month of November, or on Thanksgiving day, or perhaps just on Christmas Day when we get a bunch of awesome new stuff, but year round. That’s why I’m excited to share about this little gem of an ebook from Stacie Nelson of MotherhoodonaDime.com – Thanksgiving Heart: Cultivating Gratitude in Young Children All Year Round.
This is such a great little book. All of us struggle with entitlement and greed and selfishness in our lives and in our hearts. We live in a super me-centered world. And our children are more susceptible than ever to this attitude with the never ending onslaught of news, information, advertisement and entertainment. We need to help remind them from whom all blessing flow.
So, may I, along with Ms. Nelson, encourage you to look inward and evaluate your heart and the hearts of your children and ask God to speak to you about ways you can grow a grateful heart.
