This book shows you how to be grateful for everything in life. Not only the obvious but those things you would probably have never thought of. If we just change our attitude about situations we can change a whole lot. I highly recommend this and the book below.

 This book will make your whole attitude change about things. Instead of complaining about things that happen and such. We are to start looking for positive things in the situation and thank God for them. 21 Days of the authors on experiences with her taking time each day to journal one thing she's thankful for. Each of her journal entries are followed by a real challenge that encourages you to apply it in your own life. Beautiful prayers and scriptures are followed by stories of lives you couldn't imagine going through. But, those people thanked God in the midst of it all. This book made me look at the messes in my life and how by thanking God those messes can be turned into a sweet message.

This book is what every Christian family should strive for, turning our homes into lighthouses.It shows us how to share the love of Christ with not only our children but all those we come across.We are to shine our light for Christ and do all we can to show love for others. I pictured throughout the book a very content family. One so perfect it honestly seems unreal. I agree with most of the book. But, some things I didn't like. For example saying more yes than no to our children. I am a mom of 5 kids ages 14-3yrs. If I said yes to more and no less like the authors suggest I would be broke and my kids wouldn't learn. Things like patience, the value of money, and more. I am sure they would turn out to be spoiled adults. I've saw that happen too many times in children. On the other hand I do believe it is our duty to open our hearts and homes to those around us. This book shows how to point children in the right direction but not to push them. If we push them into a relationship with Christ we actually can push them away. We are to prayerfully talk to our family members about Christ. But like they talk about in the book we need to patiently pray about it which may take years to be answered. It talks about how we are to teach our children to be beacons of light no matter where they are. Our homes is to be inviting to anyone who comes by. It encourages us to extend our hands to those in our communities and beyond. Each chapter ends with a becoming a lighthouse page which tells how to apply it in our own lives. I am so glad I got my complimentary copy. Its challenged me to start by bringing out the cookies and sweet tea.
