What does it mean to truly live gratefully, every day? In Wake Up GratefulKristi Nelson, Ambassador for Grateful Living and Executive Director from 2014 – 2022, unlocks the path to recognizing abundance in every moment, and gives readers the tools to bring this transformational shift in perspective into their daily lives. Nelson goes beyond the proverbial question of whether the glass is half full or half empty, and encourages readers to awaken to the gift of having a glass at all.

With tailored questions for reflection, daily exercises, and perspective prompts for appreciating the fullness of life as it is right now, this book promises profound personal change through the practice of taking nothing for granted.

Wake Up Grateful — said to be “a love letter to life” — is available in hardcover, eBook, and audiobook formats from these retailers and wherever fine books are sold:
