With Thanksgiving around the corner, November is a great month to focus on gratitude. To help you get in the spirit, we’re posting gratitude journal prompts on Instagram and Facebook. On our social media this month, you’ll also find ways to engage your community around the practice of gratitude, along with additional recommendations specific to this time of year.
Don’t miss the article below where the author shares what she learned about gratitude while caring for her grandmother. It contains some powerful insights in addition to a heartwarming story.
Also featured in the resources below are a best practice and a conversation card download that can help reinforce the practice of gratitude with your mentees. This month’s conversation card question is sure to add fun and laughter to your discussion. It could be a great addition to your Thanksgiving dinner conversation as well.
Grateful to be on this mentoring journey with you!
What keeps you from expressing gratitude? Maybe you’re busy trying to juggle home and work details. Perhaps you’re a mom who rarely gets a free minute to herself. Whatever your stage of life, there’s something that will cause you to grumble instead of being grateful. In this article, author Tricia Goyer shares her experience taking care of her ailing grandmother on top of homeschooling her seven children. Her insight is helpful and encouraging as we head into one of the busiest times of the year.
Advent begins on November 28! The She Reads Truth devotional is an excellent resource to help you engage with Scripture each day during the Advent season. The link below takes you to the physical book, but keep an eye out for the online version in the coming weeks and the weekly podcast that expands on the daily readings. If you’re interested in other Advent resources, check out the ones we mentioned on our social media channels this week.
WHAT DOES GRATITUDE HAVE TO DO WITH MENTORING?
We mentor from a place of gratitude for what Jesus has done for us. Take a few minutes this week to recount the blessings you’ve experienced in 2021. And then think back on your whole life, remind yourself of other blessings you’ve experienced but maybe haven’t thought about in a while. Write them in your journal and thank Him for each one.
Starting the conversation with your mentees can be hard sometimes, especially if you’re leading a group for the first time. To help you out, we created a fun conversation card to help get the ball rolling. These cards are great for your monthly meetings, family dinners, or even as a way to engage your mentees over a group text between meetings.
