Today I came across Two Weeks of Thanksgiving Scripture Study at Chicken Scratch N Sniff. I browsed through a few of the reading outlines and I really like the content. Each day’s study session includes a song, scriptures or General Conference talks to read, a link to a short movie to watch, discussion questions, and children’s activity ideas. I think this program is just what I need right now to help inspire an attitude of gratitude in my life.
I am planning to do the reading assignments personally on my own, and then share the highlights and video clips with my family in the evening. I am a few days behind, but should be able to catch up and finish the readings by the end of November.
Today I read about The Ten Lepers, and then one of my favorite talks by President Monson, Finding Joy in the Journey. One of my favorite quotes that I have hanging in a prominent place in my home is “what is most important almost always involves the people around us”. I also thought these words were profound: “If ingratitude be numbered among the serious sins, then gratitude takes its place among the noblest of virtues.”
