Counting Gifts/ FAMILY

One Thousand Gifts #10

holy experience
One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are
Since reading the book “One Thousand Gifts,” there is so much meaning in why I count these gifts.  It truly does change ones outlook when practiced each and every day. It helps me learn what it looks like to be “content in all things.”  I am grateful.
