365 1/4 A Thankfulness Project
Have you ever found yourself facing a tough circumstance and, no matter how hard you try, you can't seem to shake feelings of ingratitude? That's exactly what was happening to me until I had a chance encounter with a homeless woman who motivated me to reflect on what it truly meant to be thankful. That's when this book was born.
For one year, 365 1/4 days, I interviewed a variety of women about their life experiences and the role that being thankful played in their lives. The women I met and the stories they shared taught me that thankfulness is one of the most important tools in building and maintaining a fulfilling life.
I hope you're inspired by the gift of their stories as much as I was and that each one will find its way to those who may feel stuck and need a gentle nudge to move forward from a challenging circumstance. These stories will help those who may need to reconnect with life's blessings through the gift of being thankful.
Personalized Gratitude Cards
"During chemotherapy recovery, I took up a new hobby – making handmade cards. At that time, it helped me get through some difficult days. Today, I see a new purpose. What a gift it is to share a word of thanks with someone who means the world to us! I encourage you to take up the thankfulness challenge and share this incredible gift! My story is captured in chapter 6 'Who Dances Around'."

Unfortunately, most men coast through their parenting journey without ever reflecting, assessing, or measuring the impact their actions and words have on their children. Fortunately, all is not lost.
