"The Grateful Table shows us the way to begin every meal with an open heart for every day of the year." -Beliefnet "Knight has lit the path of gratitude and spurred us to make this important spiritual practice the center of our lives. The quotations, exercises, and inspirational passages reveal the author's deep understanding of the bounties of spirituality put into our relationships, activities, and rituals." -Spirituality and Practice "This book is a thoroughly modern book of blessings, both heartfelt and deeply profound, filled with fresh voices and contemporary expressions of thankfulness." -New Thought Magazine "This is a fantastic book, beautiful in its simplicity, which will enrich your life and your bookshelf. Why not start being more thankful tonight?" -City Book Review "Share a meal with loved ones and friends and recite from The Grateful Table. Express blessings, prayers, and graces to show your appreciation for love and giving." -Central Minnesota Mom A beautiful little book to help you be thankful all year round. -The Magical Buffet "Get a copy of this book if you're looking to experience gratitude in your life." -Dominique's Desk "The Grateful Table gives families something to share and reflect on before each meal over the course of a year. Starting from January straight through New Year's Eve in December, some are shorter messages with just a line or two, while others lean towards a paragraph. Many are not traditional prayers, but more of a reminder of things to be grateful for, and optimistic thoughts." -Confessions of a Psychotic Housewife "There are prayers from the 18th-century for Thanksgiving to devotionals from world's wisdom traditions and sincere expressions of thankfulness by Alton Brown, David Foster Wallace, Sheryl Crow and many others. The Grateful Table shows us the way to begin every meal with an open heart." -Andersons Angels "I would consider this a devotional for the daily meal, but also for daily life. My favorite quote is short and to the point [...] This small hardcover book is just begging to be opened, read cover to cover, and to give you grateful inspiration." -Networking Witches "Don't have time to sit down to a meal every day? Worry not. You can offer any one of these blessings at any time of day that you have a minute or so to think about how lucky you are and want to glow in the light of it." "This contemporary book of blessings is segmented into daily reflections, offering you the choice of using it as a daily affirmation guide, a daily journal prompt or to absorb fully chapter by chapter for a mega-dose of inspiration. Each day offers a new perspective and a new way to give thanks, leaving room for your own personal thoughts and words of gratitude." -Rural Mom "How lovely to see through Brenda's offering that gratitude is the wonderful feeling we can have all year long." -Love Letters Live "This book will not only be an inspiration to you, but will be a catalyst to compiling your own thoughts on how good your own life is and sharing those blessing with others." -Book Bargains and Reviews "A sweet little book full of inspirational 'blessings, prayers, and graces for the daily meal.'" -Eco Child's Play "From the Old Testament (This is the day the Lord has made...) to Kanye West (Show some gratitude, leave the attitude at home), this collection of thankful thoughts covers all 365 days of the year. Intended to be used for practicing gratitude in community before meals, the diverse philosophical perspectives also make them perfect for daily gratitude meditation. Giving thanks is not only becoming a popular mainstream spiritual practice, it has also been taken up by those working with universal law to attract abundance. Brenda Knight reminds readers of The Grateful Table that giving is an important part of gratitude practice. Part of the proceeds from this terrific little book will go to BOSS, Building Opportunities for Self-Sufficiency, a California network offering housing and support services." -Retailing Insight Magazine "Give thanks for a little and you will find a lot," is the January blessing by the Hausa of Nigeria in the book The Grateful Table: Blessing, Prayers and Graces for the Daily Meal by Brenda Knight and Nina Lesowitz. In this book of daily blessings we find a lot to give thanks for. We are reminded that grace is not just for the dinner table. It is an exercise in gratitude, a Thanks Giving that can infuse our meals and our days with appreciation. This beautiful book is in itself a blessing that will uplift and inspire you to connect to the grace threading through your life." -Polly Campbell, author of Imperfect Spirituality: Extraordinary Enlightenment for Ordinary People "My grandparents taught me an old French-Canadian proverb: Anyone who doesn't expression their gratitude for all their gifts on a daily basis is a thief. Brenda Knight's new collection reinforces these notions of gratitude, gifts and daily practice. Keep it on the table of your choice and refer to it whenever you are tempted to think you've accomplished everything on your own." - Phil Cousineau, author of Burning the Midnight Oil, The Painted Word, and The Art of Pilgrimage "Gratitude is at the center of The Code and sharing a meal with friends and loved ones happens at every single gathering of the Intenders of the Highest Good. Here, fellow Intender Brenda Knight has gathered 365 ways to express thanks to all we are given in this life. The Grateful Table is a wonderful tool for manifesting and sharing abundance." -Tony Burroughs, author of The Code and Get What You Want "The Grateful Table brings together heartfelt prayers and homilies from a truly diverse group of writers, artists, and visionaries. This is a gracious and unique book that offers a bite-size reflection for every day of the year." -Billee Sharp, author of Lemons and Lavender "A heartening collection. Worthy of quiet reflection and sharing." -Judy Ford, author of Every Day Love "There is nothing quite like the feeling of fellowship that we, as human beings, experience when we come together for the purpose of being thankful for our lives and the many wonderful blessings we share. Every page of The Grateful Table: Blessings, Prayers and Graces gives us the ability to experience that euphoria in a deeply profound and beautiful way." -David Mezzapelle, author of Contagious Optimism "If you've ever thought about starting a daily spiritual practice, but felt you just didn't have enough time then The Grateful Table: Blessings, Prayers and Graces is just for you. Since you are eating anyway, everyday, this book gives you the blessings, prayers and graces that are a perfect daily practice. And since the practice of gratitude is the foundation of a more peaceful and happy life you will nourish your body mind spirit with every meal you eat." -Susyn Reeve, author of the bestselling The Inspired Life "The older I get, the more I realize the importance and the power of gratitude. It can help us rise about a situation and be thankful for what we do have instead of focusing on what we don't.
