On November 20, 2020, President Russell M. Nelson invited all of us to unite in daily prayer, use social media for seven days to express gratitude, and engage in and share acts of kindness, respect, and unity.
Share the Power of Gratitude
“Counting our blessings is far better than recounting our problems. No matter our situation, showing gratitude for our privileges is a unique, fast-acting, and long-lasting spiritual prescription.” —President Russell M. Nelson
In his 96 years of life, President Russell M. Nelson of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has seen almost everything—a Great Depression, a world war, and a global pandemic, to name a few. And he would like to propose one remedy that can help us find joy in hard times: gratitude. #GiveThanks
Practicing gratitude may not prevent us from experiencing sorrow, anger, or pain, but it can help us look forward with hope. We can give thanks for our loved ones, for our bodies and minds, for music and literature, for the beauty of the natural world.
President Nelson suggests three ways we can #GiveThanks in our own life:
1) Turn social media into our own gratitude journal.
2) Say a prayer of gratitude.
3) Build our relationship with Jesus Christ.
