Fall Gratitude Journal

Posted on

“Gratitude is the memory of the heart” – Jean Massieu

In these tumultuous times, gratitude is essential for our wellbeing. When we’re stressed, it’s easy for us to forget all of the benefits of this spiritual practice. One psychologist put it this way, “Gratitude is one of the most neglected emotions and one of the most underestimated of the virtues.” Many of us are searching for ways to stay hopeful but are feeling too overwhelmed by the distress of this world. It’s important to remember the power of thanksgiving and that it’s not just a head thing. It takes root in our hearts.

This October, we’re asking Woodland creatives to flex your gratitude muscles and submit art (stories, photos, poetry, etc.) to our Fall Gratitude Journal. Together, we can shift our focus and appreciate God’s goodness in our lives.

If you have questions, contact Paige at pslighter@whchurch.org.

Submission Deadline: Sunday, October 18

"My counselor zeroed in on the root causes of my anxiety, explaining the mechanisms of why I was feeling the way I was, and what to do about it. She was very loving and compassionate and approached my situation with a technical mindset as well. A very rare combination."
