“Let gratefulness overflow into blessing all around you…” Allow the great fullness of your heart to be moved by the impact and inspiration of grateful living. As a community-serving and community-supported nonprofit, we rely on those who care for this work to help us share this work. Your gift makes a needed difference. Please join us…


The gifts of gratefulness are currently unleashed through gratefulness gatherings, partnerships, workshops, events, books, as well as the continuation of our online offerings at gratefulness.org and Br. David’s speaking and writing. In August 2020, Executive Director Kristi Nelson’s book elucidating the grateful living framework will be published and she will take grateful living on the road. With all this, plus many other initiatives including a podcast launch next year, we are positioned to help inform, engage, and transform more lives than ever.


The benefits of living gratefully are being researched, documented, confirmed, and experienced in the lives of people seeking deeper levels of well-being. From resilience and aliveness to joy, the positive effects of gratefulness are robust and offer tangible benefit for body, mind, and spirit, as well as our relationships and communities. Learning to appreciatively embrace our own and each other’s “great fullness” yields immeasurable gifts.


The practice of grateful living supports us to live and act courageously with greater compassion, generosity, and kindness, fortifying us in a world that can often break our hearts. Ever-connected to the wellspring of our core values, we are moved to engage with life — and others — with our hearts wide open and full-blown, protecting what we cherish, nourishing what we appreciate, and taking a stand for the justice and peace that emanate from the bright light of love.

Our services are free and open to all, yet they are not free for us to provide. Your generosity sustains what we do, and helps us expand to meet the needs of a growing global community. We offer our Poem-A-Month, beautiful 2020 Grateful for Each Day Wall Calendar, and Everyday Gratitude Frame Ups to thank you for your support. Please join us. Thank you.

With grateful hearts,
