Daily Gifts Gratitude Journal {Free Printable}

One thing I have learned this year is that I am ungrateful and not content.  This is not on purpose, and it may not even be obvious to others, but it is something I am working to end.  

With this in mind, I created a little daily gratitude journal as a free printable.  (Actually, I made it for myself, but I'm sharing it.)  

I am not a graphic designer (obviously!)...but I made a simple gratitude journal.  It has a cover and a few pages to write the blessings of your days.  The entries are numbered 1-31, so that you can use it during any given month.  At the bottom of the pages is a small bit of a Bible verse.

I did not want my gratitude journal to be in a larger binder or even to be of a large size.  When I printed my journal, I selected "2 PAGES PER SHEET."  This makes the size personal, and yet there is still plenty of room to write what each day.  In order for the cover to be the front cover when printed in this way, I had to make the very first page of the printable blank and that becomes the back cover.  I tell you this so that you don't think the PDF is blank if you choose to download it. 

The download itself is only for one month of entries, but it could be reused again and again, if desired.  I wouldn't be opposed to creating a one year gratitude journal, but for now I am offering the one month journal...that can be printed twelve times. 
Would you be interested in keeping the gratitude journal during the month of June with me?  If so, leave a comment or send an email!
If you are looking for books to help you as a woman or wife, I highly recommend the following books in addition to the Bible.  They are linked to my reviews.
The Beautiful Wife, by Sandy Ralya
The Fruitful Wife, by Hayley DiMarco (linked to Amazon, an affiliate link, since I am not quite finished yet.)
Choosing Gratitude, by Nancy Leigh DeMoss for any woman, not just wives
God's Priorities for Today's Woman, by Lisa Hughes

  3. So glad you liked my printable, Annette and so glad you will be doing this on a daily basis. I was in the same place as you, as far as the discontentment goes, and this really has been a huge help to make me focus on (and constantly search for and think on) the daily blessings... big and small. Hope that this is a huge help to you, whatever you may be going through! God is good and desires good for those who Love Him <3

  4. Annette,
    This is a great idea & goes along very well with our church's Ladies' Retreat this year. We watched the DVD study, One Thousand Gifts, by Anne Voskamp, which fits perfectly with the idea of daily gratitude. Thanks for sharing!
