Nurturing a Grateful Heart | Beverly Jones-DurrNurturing a Grateful Heart?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

By Beverly Jones-Durr

We have all been given the gift of gratitude, but some of us don’t know how powerful it can be. If you follow along with me I promise you will have a new perspective if not a stronger one of the power of gratitude. I opened my mind and heart in search of this amazing gift that God has given. It took me to my very core, a place deep inside of my heart where the seed of gratitude was planted. Yours is also planted deep inside your heart. Like any seed, it needs something to ignite it, to grow to its full potential. Now, this gratitude thing is not a task you check off of a list of things to do. It is a process. If you know anything about processes they take time. Gratitude fully activated and functional flowing from your core is challenging to achieve but not impossible. There is work to be done. Are you ready? Trust me…It’s worth it.

download40 Day Joy Challenge

By Beverly Jones-Durr

Today there is an increase of unemployment, sickness, hopelessness and despair. People are overwhelmed in so many ways…fearing that there is no longer Joy in their lives…or so it seems. I wrote this book to help the reader focus purposefully each day on finding that which brings them Joy. It is my journalized search to rediscover Joy in my life. This search will be a struggle for some, at times it was for me. However, in the end Joy is the gift we discover we never really lost at all. Joy is God’s gift to His children. By focusing not on what you want but rather what you have, you will eliminate the pathology of hopelessness in your life and clearly embrace the blessings of finding Joy in ordinary things…Weeping may endure for a night, but Joy comes in the morning. Psalms 30:5.
