gratitude mini journal...

Last night, for our Young Women's activity, we created mini gratitude journals.



We talked about why it's important to recognize our blessings and express gratitude to those who are responsible for them.  We talked about how we need to be grateful for ALL things - even our trials.


The girls had fun (I think) creating these little books...and now they'll take them home and fill out a page each day for 10 days.


I honestly feel that it's important to do everything we can to have good attitudes and be happy...and I think part of being happy is learning to recognize ALL there is that we have to be grateful for...really, there is so much!  And once we recognize these things, we can express our gratitude properly.  I really loved the quote I printed for the front of our books:

"Ours is the responsibility to show our gratitude by the actions of our lives."  --Thomas S. Monson


  1. love this little book I may just have to use it if that's ok?

  2. such a great little project you put together for them!

  3. What a fun activity! I am dying to know...what is that little orange strip on the bottom of the I Am Grateful I love, love love orange and I NEEEED that, but I can't tell if it's ribbon or paper, or who made it!


  4. What a great project for young girls to help them look positively at themselves and each other! Thank you for sharing. ~Kelly
