30 Days to Seeking Thanks in Everything

30 Day of Seeking to Give Thanks in Everything
 Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you- 1 Thessalonians 5:18

Hi Friends! I have been very humbled and blessed lately by the community that has been building around The Nifty Thrifty Lady. I will not take credit for this at all, I barely even facilitate it! I have been praying for a small, loyal, and encouraging group of frugal ladies and I feel like God is working on this.




One of the areas I am working on in my life at the moment is to be thankful. How easy is it to get upset, angry, disappointed, envious even from day to day? How often are we thankful for the roof over our heads, the shoes on our feet and the little toddler tantrums each day?

The truth is God blesses us each and every day.

This  is my challenge to you in the month of November:

SEEK these blessings and truly be thankful for the them.

My main goal for this challenge is to learn to

  • Change our mindset
  • Form the habit of being thankful
  • Act on your thankfulness
One of the reasons living frugally does not bother me is because I am beyond thankful for the things I CAN afford. This is a mindset. I do not go around sobbing all day and angry because I can only afford a 10 year old VW Jetta. I am thankful I have the transportation and that I don't have to bum rides or stay in the house until my husband gets home. Yes it costs repair it and spending that money does not make me happy but when my little car was away I sure did miss it.

I am not saying I choose to be thankful so I can save money.

I am saying that when you choose thankfulness God blesses you with peace and contentment.

30 Day Challenge for November

HOW CAN YOU JOIN THE CHALLENGE?

This part is actually the simplest part!
All you have to do is check back each day to get the new Thankful Prompt. 
If you would rather get and email sent daily you can sign up here.

Each day I will be sending out a new topic and thought for the day to be thankful about.

Your jobs: 
  • Find 3 things in your life that you are thankful for and praise God for them
  • Record them each day somewhere safe
  • Once a week we will be taking some sort of action on the things we are thankful for!

Finally, I would love for you to share what you are thankful for with everyone so we can inspire and encourage our community! I searched for an unused hashtag that we can all use on instagram and actually found one! So if you want to share please use #NTLthankful and you can always tag me!

I will be discussing why I chose the topics I did and have a live chat session each Tuesday on Periscope too! 


The Challenge will start November 1st and run until November 30th.

I sincerely hope you join me on this 30 day experience.

XX,

30 Day Challenge for November Thankfulness
