Do you know there is a science of gratitude?
...having a thankful heart and an attitude of gratitude produces many positive benefits. Among them are results like becoming more socially acceptable, improving health, giving a boost to career and professional aspirations, stabilizing emotions, reducing narcissistic tendencies and self-centeredness, dramatically elevating self-esteem over time, improving relaxation and helping sleep patterns, adding productive longevity to life, increasing energy levels, promoting positive marriage relationships, and even attending to our appearance and how we look to others. The list goes on; deepening friendships, improving management skills, making social networking more productive and fulfilling, increasing productivity, improving decision-making, and reducing the negative impact adversity has on our lives.

My Review
I have mentioned before that I went through a very hard, dark depression for a few months.
But in that devastating period I learned the power of gratitude!

So when I saw this book I knew I had to read it for I am a firm believer in how impactful a grateful heart can be on your life and your health.

I also LOVE "31-day books"-- where you can spend the whole month studying, underlining, and pondering.

I have been studying the "attitude of gratitude" for about 9 years now and I actually learned some new things from this book--

I was also reminded of some gratitude that I still have to work on :)

This book gives you thoughts, quotes, examples, questions, and scriptures to increase your understanding.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED studying this book!
It is SO WORTH reading!

My Favorite Quotes
"Gratitude is the feeling itself. That is in the heart. Thankfulness is measured by the number of words; gratitude is measured by the nature of our actions. Thankfulness is the beginning of gratitude; gratitude the completion of thankfulness." - David O. McKay

"When we give thanks in all things, we see hardships and adversities in the context of the purpose of life." - Dallin H. Oaks

"Isn't it interesting that Heavenly Father has given us the main ingredient for our pursuit of happiness-- that which He knows His children want the most. To be happy, let's begin with keeping the commandment to be thankful and grateful for all things." - David A. Christensen

DO NOT PUT THIS OFF-- Grab a copy and start your own "attitude of gratitude."
