"Enjoy a happier, healthier life—starting with an attitude of gratitude! Research and revelation have both declared that staying thankful results in a host of benefits and blessings. You will be grateful for this book which contains a full month of ideas, quotes, and scriptures to get you feeling more grateful and help you see the Lord’s hand in your life."
I really enjoyed reading this book by David A. Christensen. It was an easy read and I loved the layout of it. There are 31 teachings (or chapters) which is perfect for an entire month. I would encourage everyone to buy it and make it a family tradition to read before Thanksgiving! The chapters are not long. Each chapter has a quote, a story of some sort, some questions to answer in your own personal journal, and Christensen's remarks. Now, isn't "having a thankful heart" easy? Can't we just say "Thank you!" and be done with it? No! I love how Christensen really dove into this great commandment (a commandment that I think is overlooked). He talked about being thankful in ways I have never thought about before. Christensen did seem repetitive at some points, but I think it was for emphasis. Some of my favorite chapters were on the Atonement and the sacrifice of our Savior, Jesus Christ. I even found myself tearing up in some of the stories. It really helped me discover more about myself and how grateful I am to live the life I live! I think that is what Christensen was getting at.. We owe everything to God and we need to thank Him! We need to see the good in it all and be less self-centered. I would definitely recommend this book to read by yourself, with your spouse, or the whole family!

His testimony and enthusiasm for the restored gospel was shared with missionaries and members in the Chile Santiago North Mission where he served as president, and again in Central America when he was president of the Guatemala Missionary Training Center. He counts his children and grandchildren as his most important converts, and his best friend and wife, Deena Bond Christensen, his eternal companion."
