How To Homeschool My Child

Gratitude Journal {30 Days of Thanks}

Day 7 Card Idea: Church Member

Our next day in the 30 Day Gratitude Challenge is about making a Gratitude Journal. I have made a quick video for you to watch!

Use your photo calendar to keep memories of the year. The photos will remind you of events in your life.

Each day, list 3 things for which you are grateful for. I also include the person I send my Daily Gratitude Card.

On days we are not home, I keep a journal in my purse.  It’s  a quick place to keep track of my daily gratitude list. I picked up this small 4×6 journal at the dollar store.
