10 LDS Quotes on Gratitude to Help You Count Your Blessings

Whether you are preparing for a talk or looking to enhance your personal gospel learning, these ten LDS quotes on gratitude are perfect for sharing and studying over and over again.

To the Lord Jesus, who bought us with a great price, we owe an undying debt of gratitude. All people who understand what Jesus did for us ought to love him and demonstrate that love by rendering to him, in a realistic manner, thanks and gratitude. – Marion G. Romney | Gratitude and Thanksgiving

We so easily forget that we came into life with nothing. Whatever we get soon seems our natural right, not a gift. And we forget the giver. Then our gaze shifts from what we have been given to what we don’t have yet. – Henry B. Eyring | Remembrance and Gratitude

You could have an experience with the gift of the Holy Ghost today. You could begin a private prayer with thanks. You could start to count your blessings, and then pause for a moment. If you exercise faith, and with the gift of the Holy Ghost, you will find that memories of other blessings will flood into your mind. If you begin to express gratitude for each of them, your prayer may take a little longer than usual. Remembrance will come. And so will gratitude. – Henry B. Eyring | Remembrance and Gratitude

A grateful heart is a beginning of greatness. It is an expression of humility. It is a foundation for the development of such virtues as prayer, faith, courage, contentment, happiness, love, and well-being. – James E. Faust | Gratitude as a Saving Principle

In some quiet way, the expression and feelings of gratitude have a wonderful cleansing or healing nature. Gratitude brings warmth to the giver and the receiver alike. – Robert D. Hales | Gratitude for the Goodness of God

We can lift ourselves, and others as well, when we refuse to remain in the realm of negative thought and cultivate within our hearts an attitude of gratitude. If ingratitude be numbered among the serious sins, then gratitude takes its place among the noblest of virtues. – Thomas S. Monson | An Attitude of Gratitude

If we truly want to have the Spirit of the Lord and experience joy and happiness, we should rejoice in our blessings and be grateful. – Quentin L. Cook | Rejoice!

Gratitude is a Spirit-filled principle. It opens our minds to a universe permeated with the richness of a living God. –  Bonnie D. Parkin | Gratitude: A Path to Happiness

When we give thanks in all things, we see hardships and adversities in the context of the purpose of life. – Dallin H. Oaks | Give Thanks in All Things

Could I suggest that we see gratitude as a disposition, a way of life that stands independent of our current situation? In other words, I’m suggesting that instead of being thankful for things, we focus on being thankful in our circumstances—whatever they may be. – Dieter F. Uchtdorf | Grateful in Any Circumstances

God is the same yesterday, today, and forever, but we are not. Each day, ours is the challenge to access the power of the Atonement so that we can truly change, become more Christlike, and qualify for the gift of exaltation and live eternally with God, Jesus Christ, and our families. For these powers, privileges, and gospel gifts, thanks be to God! – Russell M. Nelson | Thanks Be to God
