Here’s a few more pages I created from my sister’s blog: TWELVECOUNTRIES.COM.  I can’t get enough of my adorable nephew, Carter.  His chubby little cheeks & legs are the cutest!  They just finished their month in Australia & are off to a new country!  Check out their blog to see where they’ll go next!

For the past thirty days, you have been “PERSISTING” in lifting your thoughts. Have you noticed a difference? Has anything become “easier” for you to do than when you first started? Where do you go from here?

My hope for you is that this challenge is just the beginning of your journey, not the end. My hope is that it has inspired you to dig down deep, to look for the best that is inside of you & others, and to have the desire to learn more. I have found in my own personal journey that: KNOWLEDGE IS POWER. The more I seek, study, learn, & then APPLY the things that I am learning….the more power I have to BECOME my best self. I have also found that when you put your relationship with your Heavenly Father first, everything else will fall into place.

I know that I used these quotes at the beginning of our challenge, but I think it is fitting to end with them as well…

“Men and women who turn their lives over to God will discover that He can make a lot more out of their lives than they can. He can deepen their joys, expand their vision, quicken their minds, strengthen their muscles, lift their spirits, multiply their blessings, increase their opportunities, comfort their souls & pour out peace…Give God your best & His best will come back to you.” – Ezra Taft Benson

“Never assume that you can make it alone. You need the help of the Lord. Never hesitate to get on your knees in some private place and speak with Him. What a marvelous and wonderful thing is prayer. Think of it. We can actually speak with our Father in Heaven. He will hear and respond, but we need to listen to that response. Nothing is too serious and nothing too unimportant to share with Him.” – Gordon B. Hinckley

Starting on November 1st, I will be doing my “Thirty Day GRATITUDE Challenge” again here on my blog.  This is a great way for you to continue to work on your THOUGHTS as gratitude is one of the best things you can do to raise your thoughts to a higher level!  I hope you’ll join me for another thirty days & help spread the word!

I would also love to hear how this challenge has helped you in your life! Please share your thoughts in the comments below!

*NOTE:  I am working on turning this challenge into a printable format that you can purchase & print out at home.  I don’t have an exact date when that will be ready.  All I know is that it will be available some time before the end of the year.  As long as you are signed up for my newsletter, you will be sure to know when it becomes available!

DAYS: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12 / 13 / 14 / 15 / 16 / 17 / 18 / 19 / 20 / 21 / 22 / 23 / 24 / 25 / 26 / 27 / 28 / 29 / 30
