- Two things you’ve learned about God this year that have changed your life.
- Three things you’re thankful for about our family’s faith.
- Four things you’re thankful for about our family.
- Five experiences our family had this year that you really enjoyed.
- Six things in creation you couldn’t live without.
- Seven people outside our family who blessed you in some way.
