The Gratitude Gospel*

The Gratitude Gospel. Okay, so I made it up. But this is a new theme I am exploring in my blog.

You see, life has been rainy lately. And not in the “kids splashing in the rain” kind of way.

We sold our home.

We are renting a cabin in the woods outside of town.

And the university that employees my husband and myself is in the midst of a consolidation.

Honestly, it takes everything I have not to collapse under the weight of uncertainty. But, as a Christian, I am called to respond differently. Kids, I am learning, also won’t let the wave take me away.

So this post indicates a new direction for the blog in this season.

Every day (or at least such is my attempt) I will reflect on a moment where I have chosen to embrace the goodness in life. Often, the realizations will involve my children. But some may not. Isn’t this the nature of parenthood?

But my greater hope for the blog has always been interaction. Simply put, I want to know YOUR rich stories as well. Whether you connect directly to my posts or want to reach out to share your own, I encourage you to join the Gratitude Gospel conversation.

I look forward to sharing this journey with each of you.

    1. Thank you for your kind words. My hope is that readers can move in and out of the theme at their leisure and still feel encouraged and contemplative over the rich events of their own days. I think “gratitude accountability” is an area where many Christians can grow, so I thought, why not use the blog as my vehicle? Thanks so much for reading.
