  1. What a blessing it would be to share this book with my sister’s. Thank you for sharing this small nugget. Blessings.

  2. I’ve been journaling 3 things to be grateful for each day for years. It shifts my perspective and sets the course for my day. I would love this book as an addition to my morning quiet time.

  3. The practice of “gratitude” is life giving. Thank you for this reminder – during a season where we are prone to “work to get more.”

  4. Is possible to get a copy of Morning of gratitude please thank you Gail Mattox, 2200 Kerwin Rd. #411, Cleveland, OH 44118

  5. This book sounds like a wonderful addition to my daily Bible readings. We should always give thanks to the Lord everyday not just during the month of November.

  6. I have always tried to practice gratitude but have become a little slack lately. I love this idea. Our pastor just completed a series called 21 days of gratitude and it was a reminder I truly needed. I am grateful for this opportunity and it sounds like it would make a great gift for anyone

  7. I’m so excited to see this new book! I desperately need this for my morning routine as I struggle with anxiety and depression.

    • Dear Shay, I pray that we both win this book as I also struggle with depression and anxiety. May the Lord deliver and heal us both. May the Lord richly bless you!

  8. I have done a gratitude journal in the past, and you’re right! It does change your outlook. Would like to win this one?

  9. I love starting my day with devotions. I read Rick Warren’s Daily Hope, Journey, incourage and the DaySpring daily devotion. I have been trying to work on being thankful in all circumstances (especially when I am not thankful FOR that circumstance) so this would be a great tool to help with that goal. Thank you for the opportunity to win a copy!

  10. Isaiah 51:11 and Isaiah 35:10. Also, Jeremiah 29:11. I start each day with my prayer time and my prayer time starts and ends with thankfulness, whether I feel like it or not. I suffer off and on with depression and anxiety. I am in one of those periods now. I turn 77 on Thanksgiving day this week. I have a wonderful husband, but no children of my own. I love the Lord and look to Him for everything. God bless you all!

  11. Morning devotions are my every morning routine and in-courage blog is one of them. Thank you all of you for your inspiration and leadership and warm God filled encouraging words \0/
    Wishing you and your families a wonderful love, laughter, tummy filled Thanksgiving
    May the hand held prayer of thanks around a table filled with family and friends fill you and make God smile

  12. What a great book idea. I am thinking of possibly using the word Gratitude as my word of the year in 2024, this would be a great accompaniment.

  13. You know what a blessing you all incourage are. I love to pray for you all. You what I say most day. I thank God for waking me up to enjoy another day in his beautiful world. This is the Day the Lord Has Made Let us Rejoice and Be Glad In It. Psalm 118 v 24. Even some times I not in the mood for doing those saying. But I make myself as God as never forget about me. Never forgets to wake me up to enjoy another day in his beautiful world. Even though man might try and destroy it. Thank you for this reading today. It reminds us to get into the word of God and prayer. Do as Lamentations 3 23-26 say. “Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed because his compassion fail not. They are new every morning. Great is your faithfulness. The Lord is my portion says my soul therefore I hope in him. The Lord is good to those who wait for him to the soul who seeks him. It is good that one should hope and wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.” how true all theses are. Love Dawn Ferguson-Little Enniskillen Co.Fermanagh. N.Ireland xx

  14. I am definitely a peacemaker and it has been a bit hard lately. But I will continue to do what the Lord has called us to do. I would love to win a copy of Morning Gratitude to add to my devotional time. Thank you for the opportunity.

  15. In Courage,

    This book sounds like a must have for most women. It helps to start the day praying to God & thanking Him. I even pray sometimes at work.

    Blessings 🙂
