Jacob 4:3
“Now in this thing we do rejoice; and we labor diligently to engraven these words upon plates, hoping that our beloved brethren and our children will receive them with thankful hearts, and look upon them that they may learn with joy and not with sorrow, neither with contempt, concerning their first parents.”


One of the best places to compile our “list of blessings” is in our journals. Journal writing is so important. Even if no one else ever reads our journal, keeping one can help us individually. (See a great article on this here.) November would be a great month to take some time and write down all the things we’re grateful for. If you did that every year, and kept it in the same place (i.e. your journal), it would be really easy to go back and compare. And then you’d have even more things to be grateful for!
