Summary

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.

My Review

A Thankful Heart was the perfect book to get my mind in gear in preparation for Thanksgiving, but also just for every day to help me think about my blessings and have a more grateful attitude. I loved that each chapter was short, led with a quote from an apostle or another speaker, included scriptures to study on the topic, and provided questions to help to self assess and see what changes can be made then, that day, to develop more gratitude. There were also experiences and stories shared to explain or give an example of a point. It is highly recommended that you journal thoughts and responses to the questions. As there are 31 chapters, the reader can easily read and study a chapter each day for a month.

If you're looking for something to lift you up and help you be more grateful, then I'd highly recommend A Thankful Heart.

About the Author

David A. Christensen’s love and enthusiasm for being a missionary was sparked in a missionary preparation class at Ricks College in the late 60s. His love and testimony for the Book of Mormon was ignited in a religion class the following semester. These two classes combined as a new beginning for what would one day become not only a passion but also the centerpiece of his professional contribution in the Church Education System and at Brigham Young University–Idaho. David has taught missionary preparation and Book of Mormon classes for over thirty years. 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 served as president of the Guatemala MTC. He counts his eight children and growing number of grandchildren as his most important converts, and his best friend and wife, Deena Bond Christensen, his eternal companion.
