Lessons from Pollyanna

Paperback cover for Lessons from Pollyanna: Using her Glad Game to grow spiritually and have more joy in your life! by Autumn Macarthur
We all need more joy and faith in our lives!

A beloved classic of children’s literature, Pollyanna, the best-selling 1913 story by Eleanor H. Porter, shows how orphaned child Pollyanna Whittier transforms an entire town for the better with her “glad game” — optimism, faith, and determination to look for the good in everything.

Yet the story is also so much more than that! If all you know of Pollyanna is the Disney film version or reading the book as a child, you may find reading it as an adult surprising. Pollyanna has so much to teach us about living a meaningful Christ-like life, growing spiritually, and experiencing deeper joy, the joy God created us to hold fast to and cherish.

The beautiful paperback version includes the full text of the original story plus:
– discussion questions for book groups
– suggestions for playing Pollyanna’s “Glad Game”
– a Bible-based devotional for each chapter to dig deeper into the lessons in the story
– personal journaling suggestions.

An ebook version is available free for subscribers to my monthly devotional newsletter.

An accompanying paperback journal is also in print. This lovely book has all of the devotional content with plenty of space for you to write, draw, and color your responses. The journal does not include the original story, but it is easy to find! I have a free ebook version of the story available for subscribers (the link will be in your welcome email). Contact me (autumn at autumnmacarthur dot com) for the download page link if you subscribe to my romance or devotional newsletters, or if you purchased the paperback Lessons from Pollyanna Personal Journal.
