The featured speaker at Hearts of Hope will
be John Kralik, author of "A
Simple Act of Gratitude."
One recent December, John Kralik found his life
at a frightening low: His small law firm was
failing; he was struggling through a painful
divorce; he had grown distant from his children;
and overall, his life dreams seemed to have
slipped beyond reach.
Inspired by a note he received, John imagined
that he might find a way to feel grateful for
what he had by writing thank-you notes. To keep
himself going, he set a goal of writing 365
notes in the coming year.
Immediately after sending his very first notes,
significant and surprising benefits began to
come John’s way—from financial gain to true
friendship, from weight loss to inner peace.
Thank-you note by thank-you note, his whole life
A Simple Act of Gratitude is a rare
memoir: uplifting and inspirational, but with a
profoundly basic message and example that
everyone can believe and achieve.
After lunch and the speaker, we will have a
special drawing. Tickets for the drawing are $20
each or six for $100. The following items have
