Many of us at Fellowship Bible Church have read or are reading ONE THOUSAND GIFTS by Ann Voskamp.

For those who have not read it yet, the book is “A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are.”

Many of us who have read the book have begun gratitude journals of gifts from everyday life. Things like watching an elderly couple walk hand-in-hand through a store or hearing your children laughing together in another room.  Or how about a bee buzzing on a spring flower or the feel of a warm shower after playing in the snow?Anything that is a special blessing from God in your everyday life.

One mom even taped a large sheet of paper to her family room wall and had the whole family join in on creating a “Gratitude List”!


We want to create our own ONE THOUSAND GIFT LIST right here on the Fellowship Mom blog!!!

Share your gratitude list with us below and help us create ONE THOUSAND GIFTS FROM GOD FOR THE WOMEN OF FELLOWSHIP BIBLE CHURCH.

(You will be amazed how such a small exercise can change the dynamics in your heart and how it will amazingly spill over to your family and friends as well. )

    Here are a few from my list:
    1. Watching a squirrel eat the sunflower seeds in our backyard.
    2. The smell of my husband’s cologne on his shirts when I am doing laundry.
    3. My children’s tiny wet footprints on the sidewalk when they get out of the pool.

    10. The smell of fall, and how it reminds me of the days I snuggled with my brand new babies.
    11. The smell of brand new babies.

    23. I saw a picture of an outhouse in a public restroom and was grateful I don’t have to use one. I am grateful for the four indoor toilets I get to clean each week, and for the four children who help me clean them:)
