My son, husband, family and friends have helped to shape my life in the most memorable ways.
Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) December 14, 2011
Brenda Schubach Kiehnau, Executive Director, I am a Force4Good, is a co-author in The Gratitude Book Project: Celebrating 365 Days of Gratitude, a collaborative book sold on Amazon.com featuring over 300 authors answering the question “What are you grateful for?” in 200 words or less.
The book shares compelling stories of appreciation and evidence that harnessing the power of gratitude can be a life-changing force. The difference between saying thank you—good manners—and living in gratitude—great life skill—are illustrated in moving pieces.
There’s a mom who thinks of irritations as blessings and another who gives thanks for Muscular Dystrophy. There are narratives about how wrinkles, not fitting in and suffering came to be embraced. There’s even gratitude for ex-husbands and “ugly gifts.”
The Gratitude Book Project: Celebrating 365 Days of Gratitude is not only full of thanks but is also brimming over with testimonials to the people, things, events, and circumstances we so often take for granted.
Kiehnau’s contribution to the book centers around the past 10 years since 9/11 and what has come from that day of sorrow. She has been faced with challenge but, blessed by the many who are part of her life.
"The project was a perfect way to share with all those who are in my life how truly thankful I am for them. Being part of this book is a celebration of those who silently cheer me on and never ask for recognition. It was important for me to say thank you in a special way," shared Kiehnau.
In keeping with the spirit of the project, net proceeds from national book sales will be split among three charitable organizations: Feeding America, Women for Women International and the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ACPCA).
