Grateful Living

Our Mission Statement

We empower people to live meaningful lives through the transformative practice of grateful living.

People come to us when gratitude isn’t enough. That’s because we go deeper. Grateful Living supports your daily life during challenging and joyful times with programs, resources, and skills for being more fully alive. We have a revolutionary spirit like our founder, the internationally beloved “Grandfather of Gratitude,” Br. David Steindl-Rast. As a diverse community, we are seekers of a meaningful life. Wherever you are in your lived experience, you are welcome here. Each step is part of the journey. Let’s go together.

Strategic Plan

Scientists, philosophers, and theologians all agree: our future depends on gratefulness. Here at Grateful Living, we are doing our part. Our strategic plan is how we will support our global community of more than 1,600,000 people over the next three years. As we grow our programs and community, we hope you will be with us each step of the way.
