Good afternoon all! I wanted to drop into your inbox and let you know I will be taking time away from social media to dig deeper into a heart of thanksgiving with my Heavenly Father over the next couple of days.

"What if you woke up today with only the things that you thanked God for yesterday?"
My hope is this quote brought you to your knees as it did me, because we cannot let the busyness of life and the holiday season disrupt our hearts of thanksgiving. Psalm 107:8-9 says,

So, what are YOU thankful for this holiday season?
I invite you to write a love letter to Your Heavenly Father for all the things He provides. Whether they are big or small or you read them out loud during your Thanksgiving dinner. Let's give Him the praises He deserves!
