Cultivating Gratitude: A Gratitude Journal and More

Course Description

This course will introduce you to the practice of cultivating gratitude. You will learn the benefits of “thinking thankfully” as we create a gratitude journal from scratch and set up a variety of unique pages perfectly suited for daily recordings of your blessings.

As we cultivate a habit of recording our gratitude in our new journals, we will soon see that it’s hard to keep our new “attitudes of gratitude” all to ourselves. With this in mind, the course will also include quick projects that are perfect for sharing and letting others know how thankful we are for them.

  • Lesson 1: Learn the benefits of cultivating gratitude as part of our daily living. Begin Gratitude Journal: re-purpose a hardcover book into our gratitude journal cover.
  • Lesson 2: Continue building Gratitude Journal: fill our journals with a variety of journaling pages.
  • Lesson 3: Support each other and share as we begin cultivating gratitude on a daily basis in our journals. Explore mini journals and explosion boxes as ways to celebrate and record specific blessings.
  • Lesson 4: Create a variety of “Thankful for You” cards and participate in a challenge to express your gratitude outward toward your family, friends, and neighbors.
(Kit info: In the classroom, Karen has made available for purchase the metal binder mechanism she uses to build the re-purposed book journal. This is a "half-size" binder mechanism with 3/4" round rings, suitable for sheets measuring 8.5" high x 5.5" wide. Included are screws/nuts to secure mechanism to journal as will be described in class. Cost is $3.50 plus $2.99 shipping and handling to continental US addresses only.)

Student Feedback

"I liked the idea of the gratitude journal, but am not usually one to follow through with projects. I liked the step by step directions and flow of the course. I didn't feel pressured to finish, even though I did! I am still working on the box, but am still deciding just who to give it to. Karen, you are very creative and you made the projects so easy to follow and complete. I will watch for your upcoming classes! Thanks!" ~Denise, MCC student
