About the Book
“...in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” (1 Thessalonians 5:18). Everything is a lot of things - so take it one step at a time! My Thankful Beginning ~ A Shift in Focus is the first 100 thankful things (of a goal of 1,000) that Jenari Skye has written, designed to be a springboard for you to begin your own journey toward a thankful heart in Christ Jesus. This devotional journal will help you get started, and will offer some guidelines and structure, should you choose to use it that way. It may be your first step in shifting your everyday focus toward Christ, and in learning how to practically apply thankfulness in your walk with Him.
I was born and raised in California and came to know Jesus Christ as my Savior at an early age. I work as the Secretary at my church, married my high school sweetheart in 2005, and we had our first child in 2011. I write in the hopes that sharing what God has shown me will encourage my brothers and sisters in a closer relationship with Christ, and bring hope to those who have none. May Jesus Christ be praised!
