#LMMLinkup is about learning and reading. I have so much to be grateful for this week, including teachers, crafts, and books. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday this week!
Today’s gratitude topic asks:
What teachers are you grateful for?
I am too old to remember most of my teachers, but I am grateful for my daughter’s teachers, in particular her seventh grade English teacher. She believed in my daughter and switched her to the advanced English class at her school. My daughter always says she is her all time favorite teacher because she encouraged a love of writing and reading.
I am also thankful for my daughter music coach this year. She pushes my daughter to excel as a singer and piano player while making it fun and entertaining.
Teachers lead, direct, mode, and build character. They serve as foundations in our children’s lives. I know my teachers created in me a love for life-long learning.
What teachers are you grateful today?

Last Week’s Top Clicked Post!
By Beth Steffaniak at Messy Marriage
In this post, Beth introduces her guest post at Sheila Wray Gregoire’s blog To Love, Honor, and Vacuum. She also includes a great resource to help you determine why you argue and how you argue and what your arguing style with your husband says about your marriage. The blog post also includes a prayer journal with guide questions and scriptures to help edify your marriage. Beth provide so many useful tools on her blog. Messy Marriage continues to be one of my favorite blogs. Her blog posts have been the most clicked several times because she delivers such useful information to help Christian women improve their marriages.
My Favorite Post(s) of the Week
In the spirit of learning and Thanksgiving, I have three favorite posts for which I am thankful this week. First:
We also had a post featuring some great reads from Melissa at her blog, Jesus Loves Me Devotions. Melissa features five of her favorite Thanksgiving books. I loved the book, A Very Thankful Prayer. Be sure to check her great post out today.
We also need to focus on spiritual truths for Thanksgiving which is why I enjoyed Diana’s post:
These characteristics will provoke and challenge you as you try to live up to each of them. She also includes a great resource for Thanksgiving: Blessed Thanksgiving Verses.
Now, it is time to link up to the Literacy Musing Mondays hop!
Today’s post also continues my special series celebrating gratitude. As we approach the Holy Season of Advent, first I fix my mind on thankfulness. Thankfulness is a state of being. It is part of the cross that we deliberately choose to pick up each day as we follow Christ. To celebrate Thankfulness, I have created a Fall Bible study and journey that I invite you to join with me.
As I write this series, I am also joining Jennifer Dukes Lee’s 30 Days of Gratitude Challenge. Her beautiful graphic above lists 30 daily gratitude topics on which I will base each day’s post this month.
Even though the posts will be short, I plan to pack them with inspiration and Scriptural truths as we lead up to the Thanksgiving holidays and then flow into Christmas. This series is my gift to you.
