National Adoption Month

National Adoption Month in November raises awareness and increases outreach concerning the need for permanent families across the United States. Every year, there is a growing need for children of all ages to find secure and safe families.

National Family Literacy Month

National Family Literacy Month is an annual designation observed in November. This month, get the whole family snuggled up on the couch and open up a good book. Studies show that reading aloud with mom or dad is the most important activity when it comes to preparing children to read on their own.

National Life Writing Month

National Life Writing Month is an annual designation observed in November.   #LifeWritingMonth

The goal of National Life Writing Month is to encourage people to write about themselves and their life as they have experienced it thus far. Take a moment to write about YOUR life and YOUR memories (personal and family stories, memories, traditions, significant events).  Add something to your life’s story today!

Military Family Month

Military Family Month dedicates November to military families around the world. The observance recognizes the commitment and dedication these families make to their service members. Their sacrifices make it possible for our military to remain organized and strong.

National Gratitude Month

National Gratitude Month is an annual designation observed in November.  #NationalGratitudeMonth

Gratitude is more than simply saying “thank you.”  Gratitude’s amazing powers have the ability to shift us from focusing on the negative to appreciating what is positive in our lives. 

If everyone practiced daily gratitude, we could change ourselves and the planet for the better.  Everyone would be much happier.  Love would grow and hate would decrease.  And the world would know true peace.
