“Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
1 Thessalonians 5:18 NIV
Hi Friends! It is so good to be back with you today. Many of you have contacted me to say that you had been missing my posts. Thank you for your kind words–they are deeply appreciated.
Truth is, I took a two week break recently to finish up the final edits and revisions of my first book, ‘A Thankful Heart: 30 Days to the Grateful Life,’ set to debut this month on Amazon. You read that right–my first book is complete and I am so excited about this God-given opportunity. This study is about finding and recognizing the blessings, both big and small, in our everyday lives. I have included a sneak peak of the cover (below).
Each day is filled with scripture, a short devotional, and journal space to record your thoughts. The study is based on biblical truths to remind us of the importance of gratitude and thankfulness in our everyday lives. Our attitudes, thoughts and actions are at the very core of who we are, and this study gives us the opportunity to praise our God daily. Each of us will be afforded the opportunity to draw closer to the Lord by exercising a thankful heart each day. The daily devotionals and scripture readings are going to usher you into the presence of the Lord as you spend time with Him and meditate on the ways He has blessed you.
I firmly believe ‘A Thankful Heart: 30 Days to the Grateful Life,’ will help you build a daily routine to celebrate gratitude and thankfulness every day of your life. There is a lot to be said for cultivating a heart of gratitude that honors God.
As an extra feature and reminder to thank God for everything, you will find the ‘Food for Thought’ section filled with favorite family recipes at the end of each week. This special section is in honor of the two most influential women in my life–my mother, Amelia Rowland, and my mother-in-law, Lalon Neely Pirkey (1919-2016). Your family will thank you. And, after the release date, friends who purchase the book will be treated to several beautiful extras right here at Peacefully Imperfect.
I hope you are blessed by this study and I pray you have opportunities to share with family and friends. I promise I’ll keep you updated about its availability on Amazon. The tentative launch date is October 10, 2017.
