Welcome to the November 2019 With Thanks Bible reading plan and journal challenge! If this is your first time here, then I’m so glad to have you!

Have you really wanted to pull yourself out of despair and couldn’t?

Have you ever experienced heart break and heartache to the point of feeling like you are losing your faith?

I hear ya, Friend. Throughout this year, I’ve had to narrow my focus to the immediate responsibilities on my plate and work at keeping my heart in line with the Lord’s plan for my life. Two of the most strategic tools to use in this battle? Praise and thanks.

There’s nothing like a gratitude journal to help keep you focused on what matters. Combine gratitude exercises with a daily Bible reading plan and that’s one incredible journal to keep your heart aligned with God’s.


Each month I host a monthly Bible reading plan and journal challenge to help our community enjoy reading God’s Word together and encourage our hearts to be faithful to Him.  Together, we have completed over 35 Bible reading plans, including both annual and monthly reading challenges. I’ve developed all sorts of strategies to help us read God’s word faithfully and there is nothing like this monthly system we are working through together.


Many readers have requested that I list our monthly resource at the beginning of this announcement post because you already know you want it and don’t need the details. So here you are. Order the With Thanks Bible reading plan & journal.

With Thanks Bible Reading Plan and Journal Challenge

Treasuring the moments of each day you’ve been given and focusing on a thankful heart can truly transform your perspective. I’m not just saying it. I’ve experienced it.

Through the 22 years of being mom to many kiddos and being mom to a special needs child, I’ve learned firsthand about the incredible power of gratitude. And the deal is that it’s not a one and done moment. It’s the art of practicing gratitude that cultivates a thankful soul.

So who would like to work on warming up to a new outlook? A way of seeing the world with eyes of love and thanksgiving?
