Review

There are times in life when our hearts seem to overflow with thankfulness for the blessings God has bestowed. But what would happen if we were to feel and express deep gratitude — not just on special days — but every day?

It's possible, says Karen O'Connor (who, along with her family, has been transformed by the teachings in Basket of Blessings). With this deeper sense of gratitude, she says, we will enjoy richer, more fulfilling lives, and others will be blessed. Through it all, God is praised.

Over the next thirty-one days, you too will come to experience God's blessings more fully. Soon you will be recognizing — and finding inexpressible joy in — God's tender, constant reminders of his faithfulness and love.

Karen O'Connor has found a way to tug at your heart strings in this one. She shows why it's so important to be thankful for each day, each passing moment, each breath of air, drop of rain, ray of sunshine. Basket of Blessings walks you through the steps to having a more grateful heart. Each day, you read a short anecdote expressing Karen O'Connors gratitude, tales that open your heart and prepare it for the love and gratitude in your own life. Then she shows you Bible passages that lift the soul to God in gratitude. Answer her questions regarding the gratitude you feel in your heart. These questions focus your attention on things you might have overlooked, things that you might take for granted, things you might never have thought of. Keep a little "basket of blessing", things you are grateful for. Add to it every day, she'll point you in the right direction. Before you know it, you'll be finding things on your own. Things you are grateful for. Things that open your heart in a new way. Soon you'll feel better about yourself and the life you have. You'll find yourself finding the good in most situations, and feeling good about it. Close each day with a heartfelt prayer, and you are well on your way. In less than 31 days you'll open your heart and your soul to the life you want, the life of peace, the life of love and of gratitude.

I second everything the Florida reviewer says. The short stories and questions for you to answer can't help but change your feelings towards your entire life. I treasure this book and I am giving it as a gift for my friends also. Its extremely powerful in guiding my thoughts in just the right direction I think they should be going - realizing and understanding just how precious life really is and what wonders are around me every day. I have been searching for the last 7 years to find something like this book and this is really the best. I can't imagine anyone reading this book faithfully and coming away disappointed.
What about the religious aspects? There is a Christian flavor to things. But even though I am not a complete christian, I can very simply and comfortably translate the author's words into my own spiritual understandings.
