So Many Reasons for Giving Thanks!

So Many Reasons for Giving Thanks!

November has become one of my favorite months of the year. What once was a dreary Michigan month of bare trees, grey skies, and rain–the interlude between fall colors and Halloween and Christmas and winter snow–is now a month to focus on gratitude. And, need I mention, NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month? Now each November I immerse myself in the attempt to write a novel in one month and I give thanks every day for the many blessings I have. It doesn’t get much better than that!

If you need help to focus on gratitude, I have a booklet of brief reflections on the season, Season of Gratitude. Each meditation is designed to help you become a more thankful person. Thankful people are also happier. What better way to deal with grey sky blahs than by focusing on all the reasons you have to be thankful.

And for those of you in warmer climes, be thankful for how lucky you are!

Praise for Freedom Dance

“I thoroughly enjoyed the entire book, but as a historian, I was especially drawn to the chapters that describe the past. In these chapters, Patricia explores the inner working of the Underground Railroad, that secret network that transported enslaved Americans from slave states in the South to Free states in the North and Canada. The trials and tribulations of these brave souls–both free and enslaved–are an inspiration that still speaks to us today.”   Linda Hass, author of Michigan Crossroads to Freedom and Hidden in Plain Sight.

    Patricia Robertson writes skillfully and from the heart.

    Patricia Robertson writes skillfully and from the heart. And her heart is informed by broad life experience in both family life and spiritual formation. Here’s the delight her readers soon discover: Much spiritual formation takes place within the family, and by the sovereign grace of God.

    Winsome and soulful grace.

    With winsome and soulful grace Patricia invites her readers to see themselves through the story of others. I not only find myself there but I feel kinder and smarter after time spent with Patricia’s writing.

    Moving stories that inspire!

    I became immediately interested in the characters in Patricia’s books, and found what I hope you will find too: that no matter your circumstances, these moving stories will inspire you to see life’s challenges as opportunities to grow in life-transforming ways.
