25 Ways to Cultivate a Thankful Heart • No Place Like Home

Cultivating A Thankful Heart

As a mom, I want to cultivate thankfulness in my children’s hearts. I want them to recognize God’s blessings. I want them to be grateful. And I want us, as a family, to follow Ephesians 5:20 – “Giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

November’s a natural time of the year to slow down and talk about what we’re thankful for. I’ve found it’s easier to inspire thankfulness with young children when tying our thanks into something creative.

If you’re looking for ways to cultivate a thankful heart, try any of these 25 ideas with children (and adults) of all ages!


My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.
