Gratitude Journals

Each of us is so very blessed and have so much to be grateful for.  Some times when we are going through rough times it helps to think about the good things in our lives.  What’s even better is writing down our blessings in a journal so that we can refer back to them when times are hard.

Recently our women’s group at church (Relief Society) got together for a Gratitude Dinner.  We had different soups, breads, and desserts.  An awesome video had been made beforehand interviewing several members about what they were thankful for.  Part of the evening was watching this together.  As a handout I prepared gratitude journals for everyone.  Here’s what I did.
