A few months ago, I started reading Choosing Gratitude by Nancy Leigh DeMoss. It’s thought-provoking, easy-to-read, encouraging and convicting all at the same time.
I’ve been working through it rather slowly, giving myself plenty of time to digest each individual chapter before moving on to the next… and sometimes unintentionally forgetting about it for weeks on end. But I would really like to finish it sometime this year!
And so, when I was reading it this past weekend, I thought… why not study it together as a DFD community?
Reading a book as a community is a great way to stay on track, share feedback, and help each other apply what’s written on the pages. With this book in particular, it will help each one of us grow in our gratitude attitudes. We’ll be able to build each other up in the knowledge of God and His Word, and help each mature as Christians, while at the same time reading a very solid, relevant book on a Christian quality by a very godly woman.
What could be better?
Starting in September, we’ll be working through Choosing Gratitude together, at the rate of one chapter per week.
Here’s the low-down:
- The Choosing Gratitude study will begin the first week of September, and finish in the beginning of November — just in time for Thanksgiving!
- You can purchase it on Amazon or on CBD.
- We will read one chapter per week and have a discussion post one day each week. I’ll share some reflections on the chapter, outline the major points, and ask some questions to get the conversation going.
- If there’s interest, I can also add a link-up for other bloggers to share their own posts about the book study or just about gratitude in general.
It’s okay if you’ve already read it — I’d love to hear your feedback on each chapter, and maybe some suggestions for applying what we’re reading. And it’s even okay if you don’t own the book. You could check your library for it, or just read my posts and join in the conversations as much as possible.
And it’s going to be somewhat laid-back. If we want to keep discussing something more than one week, that’s fine. If you have to skip a week for some reason, that’s fine too. Don’t stress over it — just be thankful for what you can do! 🙂
What do you think? Plan to join me?
Also, let me know if you’re interested in joining a link-up for the duration of the study!
