Our team has been hard at work behind the scenes with creative designers and developers building a beautiful, new and improved online home for Grateful Living! As our community and organization evolve, our commitment to offering you an enriching online experience where you can connect, learn, and find guidance throughout your Grateful Living journey only deepens. And as technology rapidly advances, an updated online experience for you is long overdue!
Your generous support and inspiring ideas shared over the years through surveys, emails, and letters have made this dream an approaching reality. We are truly grateful to be so close to bringing this collaborative vision to life for you.
As we continue approaching the “big reveal” later this summer, we’re thrilled to offer a small peek behind the curtain at the exciting improvements to celebrate and new additions to anticipate.
Upgrades to your favorite features
The tools you know, use, and love including eCards, Light a Candle, and the Private Gratitude Journal are all being tended and improved to offer you the best possible experience.
Improved readability, reliability, and search
Many of you have asked for improvements regarding the readability, reliability, and search functionality of our website. We’re happy to be implementing all of these changes with the arrival of our new website. Expect a faster, more reliable, more accessible, and increasingly robust experience overall.
Reimagined organization of our resources
With the launch of our new website comes an upgrade to how our library of resources is organized and presented for your exploration. Discover deepening resources easily with updated topics and themes, and enjoy more ease and options when it comes to searching for specific resources within our library.
Fresh ways to explore content
In addition to updated topics, we will be introducing NEW themes for each of the Five Guiding Principles and Br. David’s Stop.Look.Go Guiding Practice. These additions open up new opportunities for working with the Principles, while helping you cultivate presence, perspective, and possibility. These new themes also offer a more guided pathway to exploring Grateful Living in tandem with our ongoing practices and live courses throughout the year.
More connection opportunities and improved Gratitude Lounge
A new community platform will allow for deeper connection and endless possibilities as we continue to learn and practice, together! This community space is also where you’ll find the Gratitude Lounge, which will offer more opportunities for casual social connections and deeper reflection. The Gratitude Lounge is a sacred space we hold near and dear, and we’re so happy to be able to expand upon it in meaningful ways.
Other upgrades to anticipate:
- Simplified navigation
- A more unified login/account experience
- Daily Question and Word for the Day both visible on the homepage
- More original content from our team and featuring our community
- Increased diversity of voices
We hope you’ll join us in the excitement and celebration as we approach our launch later this summer! What are you most excited to see? We invite you to share your reflections in the comments.
