As the year progresses, it’s important to make some time to reflect on how things are changing, what remains the same, and what is on the horizon. Most importantly in these times of reflection, it's important to consider all there is be thankful for, and acknowledge the countless blessings from God that work themselves into your life every day. Below are four different resources from Brilliant Book House, Brilliant Perspectives and Youtube that will help you cultivate and maintain a lifestyle of gratitude.
