ENGAGE IN EVERYDAY MOMENTS TOGETHER
As your kid starts their day, let them know something about them that you are grateful for—something they did, some personality trait that you admire, etc.
While on the go, ask your kid: “What’s the best thing that has happened to you lately?”
At a meal this week, have everyone at the table answer this question: “What is something you can be grateful for this week?” (It can be something small—some weeks are like that.)
Pray for each other: “God, help us to always see something we can be grateful for in each and every situation. We know it might not change the situation, but it does remind us that You can bring good to even the hardest things we go through.”
