Just a quick writing tip today: take some time aside from all the busy-ness of life to write a list of everything you are grateful for. Reflect on the Lord’s goodness towards you, and give him thanks for all the many blessings he has been pouring on you day by day, new every morning.

Sea and land

This isn’t anything to do with writing for young people, in one respect, but everything to do with it in another, because if we are going to write for others, to inspire them to walk with God, we need to make sure we are in the right place ourselves. Being thankful is a great place to start!

Let me know in the comments below how long your list is. 🙂
