Mystery Week 4: The mystery of gratitude

Throughout our abundant lives, we can find simple and quick ways to connect our learning and growth at church to our lives at home.

At Church

We created our own Gratitude Journals and explored how gratitude changes us.

Family Time

Start a tradition of writing in a gratitude journal. If you missed church this week, the kids received a small journal to start their own.  Find a small journal for each person, or start a gratitude jar where you write things everyone is grateful for on small slips of paper.

Write gratitude postcards to people you are grateful for.
