"Celebrating 365 Days of Gratitude" book event, Feb. 4th at Florey's!

Florey's Book Co. welcomes author Kathy Scheiern, as she discusses the new book "The Gratitude Book Project: Celebrating 365 Days of Gratitude"

***Saturday, February 4th, 2-4pm***

About the Book:

"The Gratitude Project Book" is a collaborative book featuring over 300 authors answering the question “What are you grateful for?” in 200 words or less, with National Book Sale Proceeds Benefitting Three Charitable Organizations. 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 (ASPCA).

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 to 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.”

Kathy Scheiern made four contributions to the book. One to her mother for the gift of life and one to her father for his honesty and his faith. She also contributed an entry about being grateful for everything! And her final entry was about being grateful for the simple lessons of a walk in the woods.

“Gratitude is a powerful force for good in the world, something we don’t exercise often enough in our lives.” Scheiern said. “When you think about it, all of us can be deeply grateful for the simple fact that we are alive!”
