Alphatudes: The Alphabet of Gratitude utilizes the ABC's as an easy and methodical structure for developing a sustainable consciousness of gratitude. What simpler way to positively transform our outlook on life than through a system we conquered as children? An 'alphatude' is defined as a person, place or thing for which one alphabetically expresses gratitude. You will be guided on a beautifully inspiring journey through twenty-six Alphatudes drawn from spiritual principles and universal human concepts. The Alphatudes offered in this book are enhanced with inspirational quotes, breathtaking illustrations, insightful teachings, affirmative statements and heartfelt prayers. You will not only grow in your practice of gratitude, you will connect with the God of your understanding and discover the serenity and prosperity that is already yours.

Language is one of the primary ways we perceive and understand our world and one of the key tools we rely on to connect to others. Each word we use has an emotional charge that either nurtures our well-being or creates a sense of discord within our essence. Alphatudes: The Alphabet of Gratitude helps us become aware of how our vocabulary forms the language through which we experience our lives.
