About the Book:

A Life of Gratitude: How to Overcome Self-Pity and Negativity

During a season of transition in my life, I found myself overwhelmed with negative emotions like self-pity and a complaining spirit. It was as if a dark cloud had descended over me. I prayed and asked God for wisdom on how to overcome these negative emotions. As I did, I sensed Him leading me to do a 21 day gratitude challenge.

Over the course of the 21 days, God began to change me as I spent intentional time being grateful for all I had been given. I did this through writing in my journal each day and also sending a hand-written thank you note to someone different each day. This also led me to writing out 21 prayers of gratitude and compiling 21 stories of gratitude.

I want to share what I learned with you in the pages of this book which includes:

  • 21 Days of Gratitude Challenge
  • 21 Prayers of Gratitude
  • 21 Stories of Gratitude

What to Expect On Each Day:

  • Read my personal stories, struggles and reflections.
  • Read one scripture and one quote about gratitude.
  • Apply one personal application step from the challenge.
  • Read one prayer of gratitude
  • Read one story of gratitude

Get Accountability and Encouragement

Along with the 21 day challenge, I also started a private Facebook group to provide accountability and encouragement for myself but also for others who decide to join me in the challenge. You will get access to this group as well. It has been amazing to see God at work in each of our lives.

Will you join me on this journey to gratitude?

My Love for Barnes & Noble August 3, 2012

Rebekah Lyn's bookcaseI’m a Barnes & Noble girl.  From the first time I pulled open those colonial green doors, breathed in the welcoming aroma of fresh brewed coffee, and my gaze fell upon the evenly spaced rows of dark stained bookcases filled with new adventures waiting to be opened, I was in love.   Gathering a pile of books and collapsing into a comfy chair to decide which treasures would go home with me, was the highlight of many a college weekend.

 

Now, I’ve noticed most of the stores have removed those wonderful chairs, leaving only the hard, straight-backed seats in the café for respite from scouring the aisles.  I guess that is the corporate office’s attempt to discourage loitering and reading without purchasing.  In a way I can understand the change, but at the same time I miss the leisurely feel they added, like I was visiting a friend’s home library and being invited to take all the time I needed to choose the books I was interested in.

 

One of the stores near me is two stories with several large tables on the second level overlooking the main floor.  I don’t get to this location as often as I would like, but some summer afternoons, I am content to purchase a trenta Passion Tea Lemonade from the Starbucks café, ride the escalator to the second floor, and sit at one of these tables, watching the people below weave through the aisles.  Some move with purpose directly to their intended section, but most wander aimlessly, pulling a book out to scan its cover or simply touching a beautiful cover.  Maybe one day I will meet my future husband on one of these lazy afternoons and we will talk of all the good books still waiting to be discovered.  Until then, I think I will mix up my own Passion Tea Lemonade and take a break in the backyard to soak up a few rays.  If you want to make your own drink and join me in the sun here’s the recipe I used.
