I ask my teens what they’re grateful for before going to bed every night and now there’s a book to help them do exactly that every day…

Faith is not some weak and pitiful emotion, but is strong and vigorous confidence built on the fact that God is holy love ~ Oswald Chambers


It’s always a pleasure for me to celebrate the accomplishments of my friends, especially when they’re fellow Nashville Bloggers. Today I’m excited to announce that Scarlet Paolicchi’s latest book, Gratitude Journal for Teens, releases today!

This teen gratitude journal features four sections:

  1. A New Lens
  2. The Stories I Tell Myself
  3. A Tool for the Tough Stuff
  4. Thanks, World

Each page includes an element that encourages teens to check-in with their feelings, as well as a prompt to help them express what they’re grateful for that day.

While I don’t see teens writing in every single page of this book or working through it cover to cover, I appreciate its approach. It allows teens to turn to the section or page they resonate most with that day. There are also helpful quotes scattered throughout.

The look of the book is skewed a bit more toward tweens, yet if you can get your teen to work through even a handful of the pages, you’ll help them develop a lifelong habit that will help them long after they leave your home.

Finally, I appreciate what Scarlet says at the end of her introduction,”While this journal will help you deepen your experience with gratitude, it is not a replacement for a therapist, medication or a medical treatment. There is no shame in seeking help when life gets too stressful.”

Some of us underestimate all our teens have to deal with today. This new gratitude journal may not be the answer to all your teens’ problems, but it can certainly be part of the solution as the learn to look at life through a different lens.

I’d love for you to check out the book on Amazon here.

The first week of sales is so important to an author, so if you’re thinking about purchasing this as an end-of-school or graduation gift, now would be the time to do it!

PRAYER FOCUS: Perseverance

Anytime a friend releases a new book, I can’t help but relive my own book writing process. There were many times in my own publishing journey that I wanted to give up, but I persevered.

In his sermon this past weekend, Pastor Steven Furtick admitted at one point or another, he’s been tempted to quit everything significant he’s ever done. “The more you are tempted to quit, the greater the significance. You can’t quit every time you don’t understand something. Instead of quitting, consider shifting how you’re doing things.” (Read the full sermon notes here)
