SAVING LIVES
Words cannot do justice for the power of gratutde and sharing the I am grateful for... ring. I was mentoring a 16 year old girl. I sat her down one day and shared all the reasons why I am grateful for her and gave her an I am grateful for™ ring. I explained to her how each time she spun it I wanted her to remember that she had made a difference in my life and that of so many others. I asked her to spin the ring each morning and each evening focusing on all that she was grateful for and explained it will rewire her mind to focus on the positive. Two weeks later, she shared with me that she had been planning on committing suicide. When I gave her the ring, it was that one shred of decency, kindness and compassion that helped her to have hope and find faith again. She stated, each time she spun the ring, she found a renewed zest for life and peace in her heart. Words cannot describe the power of this experience for me and her.

My grateful ring experience was indescribable. To wake up every morning, sit still and just focus on why I am grateful and what does it mean to be grateful was really great. I Am B.E.A.U.T.Y. Boot Camp helped me start a new daily routine for myself. Sometimes I forget what I am grateful for. What I learned throughout this experience is to continue to be grateful for every moment in my life. I need to be more grateful for the good, bad, happy and sad moments. There shouldn’t be a dull moment in my life where gratitude isn’t expressed or shown. Some of the things I am grateful for is my Savior that died on the cross for me. I can’t express any more gratitude about that. It’s an indescribable feeling when you think about someone who died for your sins. Another thing I am grateful for is my life. Through my life I’ve had rough patches. High mountains and valleys came daily that I needed to go through; nonetheless I am grateful. I wouldn’t be where I am in my life if it wasn’t for those crooked roads and dark nights or even the happy days. Every moment for me is unforgettable being that I had an age expiration date for my life. Lastly, I am truly grateful for my parents. Without my parents I truly don’t know where I would be, what I would be doing if I didn’t have their support, encouragement and love. My parents are my life and I appreciate them daily. My ring will be passed to my mentor Shakeema North. I want to pass my ring to her because she entered into my life at a difficult time for me. I was going through a lot at the time and she came in my life, lifted me up, encouraged me and never left my side. She may be far by distance but I can always pick up the phone and call her. I am truly grateful for a youth pastor/mentor that loves me, appreciates me, guides me, lets my light shine and is dependable. I don’t know if I would be doing half of the things I am doing as far as church is concerned if I didn’t meet and build a relationship her.- Bri-Sha  18 yeats old

HELPING JUVENILE PROBATION
As the Juvenile Civil Citation Program Coordinator we utilized the Grateful Ring program curriculum that was offered for our first time offenders- practical tools for real life success. This proactive character education program helped our first time offenders build character, develop leadership and offered ways to creative a positive community. After the six one hour sessions, the Civil Citation kids reported the skills were so important that they could not understand why they were not already taught in traditional education. After the program, they reported a better understanding of managing their emotions and thoughts and were quite enthusiastic how they were going to change their lives in the future. One offender was able to connect with his parents and share a plan that he created to living out a new vision within his life. Another one of the offenders not only learned the power of meditation but began to teach his family and friends the power of meditation. The teens reported learning skills and tools to manage anger, guilt and social pressures to conform that will help them to forgive themselves, make better choices to ensure not reoffending and understand how the brain works to form a vision, foundation and be a role model for good. Even myself as a 28 year Law Enforcement Officer attended the program and learned new skills to live a better life. As we know, all behaviors begin with the thoughts we form each day. Teaching our Civil Citation kids how to take control of their thoughts and emotions is one of the most important solutions to building a better community. Thanks so much for your consideration and hope we will partner in the near future so we can give kids a better life and be crime free.

The grateful ring experience was very enriching for me. I learned how to be grateful for things that occur on a daily basis. For example, I was grateful for waking up every morning, which I didn’t acknowledge on a daily basis before the ring. The ring also pushed me to appreciate things that may be little but can still be big in the end. I also learned how to take some time to think about myself, because I had to take 20 minutes to sit in silence every day. I was grateful for many things over the two weeks I had with the ring. I was grateful for my mother because she has always supported me in everything I do. My mother is determined and persistent and I want to be like her when I get older. I was also grateful for my grandfather because before his passing he always looked out for me. He was my father figure, when I needed him to be and my friend when I needed him. He proved to me that I was beautiful at a young age. Lastly, I was grateful for being healthy all of my life. I believe if you are healthy you will live longer. If you live longer you have a better chance to pace your mark on the world. I will pass the ring on to my mother because she has always been the number one person I am grateful for. Not only is she my inspiration, she is my role model in every sense of the word. - Ayanna, age 15

It helped me thru my cancer treatments and now it's a part of my life. It reminds me to be grateful everyday! Inge Carlson

’m 50 and there is a group of 7 of us who have been friends since jr. high school (used to be 8 but we lost 1 of us to breast cancer). We were all either drill team (Southern Belles) or cheerleaders. 6 of them continued on to high school but I moved & didn’t get to continue with that adventure. I kept in touch for a few years, then lost touch. Well, I have one of those odd memories that allows me to remember every phone number I’ve ever known apparently. So, a few years ago I started calling all of their phone numbers from jr. high (yes, I still remembered all of them)! Low & behold some of their parents still lived in the same house – thank GOD for small miracles and the love of a good old-fashioned neighborhood. One of their parents put me in touch with one of the girls, who gave me another number and so on. That summer we all talked and I suggested a slumber party to reconnect as that was where the fun was when we were kids!!!!!!! They all said the same thing as I was talking to each one – we have been talking about doing that for years! The very next January we had our 1st annual Hood Jr. High reunion slumber party and have been doing it every year since!I’m buying each of us 7 remaining girls a ring as a gift for our annual reunion slumber party this Feb., just waiting to find out their ring size from them. They will not be surprised about a ring as I had to ask about the size but the ring itself will be marvelous! Thanks so much for providing the perfect gift for our group!Friends from 1973 – 2011. I’m including a picture of us (1975-then & 2009-our 1st reunion) so you can see! In gratitude, Rebecca Thomas and John B. Hood Jr. High
