I think it’s interesting that Thanksgiving comes so close to Christmas in the United States. It is the perfect time to stop and refocus. Thanksgiving is a great reminder of the gratefulness we should have year-round. The timing and proximity of Thanksgiving to Christmas gives us time to put our hearts in the right place before entering the Advent season.
The stores are opening earlier and earlier for Black Friday. I personally find it appalling that stores are creeping in on the Thanksgiving meals and traditions of families. Commercialism is strangling thankfulness out of Christmas as well as Thanksgiving. We as parents must fight all that much harder to make sure that gratitude has a firm hold in the hearts of our kids. This is true at Thanksgiving, Christmas, and throughout the year.
We released Be Thankful: Cultivating Year-Round Thankfulness to help you in this fight. This resource is packed with journaling pages, drawing pages, and Scripture copywork in both KJV and ESV. The study guides you through the verses on thankfulness while the printable appendices have pages that are appropriate for your toddlers or preschoolers all the way to your teenagers. Mom and Dad can even make their own journals!
