Bridget Phetasy and her co-host/husband Jeren Montgomery, an associate marriage & family therapist, consider the topic of gratitude this week. They discuss when they first became aware of gratitude as a concept and when it became a regular practice in their lives. They cover whether or not gratitude was modeled for them in their lives as children and what they’d like to do for their own daughter, the differences between gratitude and guilt, gratitude and relief, gratitude and faith, how it’s hard to feel grateful when you feel afraid all the time due to anxiety or depression, and what a powerful tool it can be as the antidote to many defects of character.

Questions of the week:

Where do you find connection and gratitude - either within religion or outside of it?

How does gratitude present in your lives and how do you practice it?

How do you model gratitude for your kids? Did someone model it for you?
