Book Description

A gratitude journal can transform your life! During a season of transition in my life, I found myself overwhelmed with negative emotions like self-pity and a complaining spirit. It was as if a dark cloud had descended over me. I prayed and asked God for wisdom on how to overcome these negative emotions. And I sensed Him leading me to do a 21 day gratitude challenge.

Over the course of the 21 days, God began to change me as I spent intentional time being grateful for all I have been given. I did this through writing in my journal each day and also sending a hand-written thank you note to someone different each day.

And now I want to share what I learned with you.

What to Expect On Each Day of the Challenge:

- Read my personal stories, struggles and reflections.
- Read one scripture and one quote about gratitude.
- Apply one personal application step.
- Get accountability and encouragement

Along with the 21 day challenge, I also started a private Facebook group to provide accountability and encouragement not only for myself but also for others who join me in this challenge. You will get access to this group as well when you buy the book. It has been amazing to see God at work in each of our lives.

Will you join us?

Scroll up and click "buy" to embark on this 21 day gratitude challenge with us and start your own life-changing gratitude journal!

4.0 out of 5 stars Getting Into the Attitude of Gratitude in Real Life June 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Appreciation is the highest form of prayer, for it acknowledges the presence of good wherever you shine the light of your thankful thoughts." ~ Alan Cohen

When Shelley Hitz made the decision to spend 21 days being grateful she did not know the outcome of her experiment. Each day she descibes what she is going through and includes Bible verses and quotes as well as thoughts to ponder.

Throughout this journey she stuggled with accepting her new situation even though her decisions brought her to the place she is in her life. By reading her book you join with her on a journey that includes sending letters of gratitude, singing worship songs and even making a gratitude board.

The ideas are good and simple enough to copy. Writing your own journal is recommended.

You can also read the entire book at once and gain an even greater blessing.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am excited about this book June 12, 2012
By Susan
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just picked up this book and I am so excited! It's a fantastic book that came into my life at exactly the right time. I am joining Shelley on this 21 day challenge. It's so easy to get wrapped up in every day life and "stuff" that happens and I needed this book to remind me of all the things I am grateful for.

I love the way this book walks you through the process of doing this challenge. It's one thing to say, "I should write in a gratitude journal every day" but the problem is, I hardly ever do it!

This is a wonderful book and I am excited to start this challenge with Shelley.

5.0 out of 5 stars I get charged up after reading this book. June 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I picked up this book due to its title. What is this 21 days of gratitude challenge? This title inspired me to take up challenges head on. I was facing with some obstacles and challenges to me and my family with thoughts of giving up. With that, I decided to go to the internet to search for possible solutions until I stumbled this book. I bought it and started reading, Gosh, I was amazed how the author structured the whole book into 21 days of actions. I particularly like day 14, day 17 and day 20... This book really charged me up.. Good job. Keep up the good work.

This is one book I will always go back to, who would have thought to send a Thank You card, in fact 21 of them, but why stop there? What came to me was sending one to someone who I struggle with, that could very well change that situation. Shelley, whom I've never met did an excellent job in sharing some her own struggles with Gratitude, we all have those and this journal will help anyone put into practice Gratitude and Thanksgiving, doesn't scripture teach us to be doers of the Word and not just hearers?

5.0 out of 5 stars Change the way you view life! June 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
What do a journal, envelopes and rocks have in common? They are all tools that will help you nurture an attitude of gratitude and "The 21 Days of Gratitude Challenge" shows you how. This is such an amazing example of 1 Thessalonians 5:18, that I am truly grateful for it. In a workaholic world, we often need a physical reminder to be thankful for what we have been given. And that's what this book is. It's an inspiring message that literally walks you down the path of living a life of gratitude. If you're ready to change the way you're looking at life, then this is definitely the book for you!

"give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you." ~ 1 Thessalonians 5:18 (NIV)

5.0 out of 5 stars A Lovely Book That Will Benefit Many June 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Shelley Hitz was feeling downcast and discontented. She decided to start a "21 Days of Gratitude" program. Essentially this involved "forcing" herself to be grateful each day in three areas - spiritual, physical and relational - to keep a journal and to send a hand-written thank you card to a different person each day.

This book is her journal, and I was touched by Shelleys' honesty at what was sometimes a struggle. But towards the end she made a wonderful discovery: "If you take the step of faith and start thanking God in your situation - even when you don't feel thankful - it can change you and your entire day."

This is a lovely book that will benefit many.
