Over 200 years ago, after much thought and prayer, fully knowing their lives would be at risk, the great men of our country issued a declaration for independence. The result was the opportunity for us to enjoy a freedom that has allowed our country to prosper as no other country before it. We have so much for which we should be grateful.
As the founding fathers gathered in the Continental Congress long ago, gather your family. Discuss and list the freedoms, people, opportunities for which your family is grateful. Use the Declaration of Gratefulness to form your list. If you are celebrating with other families, take turns reading your declarations to each other.
After completing and reading your family declaration, consider praying as our founding fathers did for our nation, it’s leaders and its future.
