Gratitude on the Recovery Journey

Nov 21, 2017 4:16:34 PM

By Kirste Richards, UGM Counselor

Gratitude plays an important role in my ministry as a counselor at the UGM Center for Women and Children in Coeur d’Alene.  It is an important part of my personal life as I strive for excellence in meeting the needs of each individual woman God sends to the Center. And it is also an important part of what I have to offer to women who are seeking relief from suffering, freedom from bondage, and life transformation.  

Women come here to find a new way of life.  They are hoping to end the cycle of addiction, homelessness, and abuse for themselves and for their children. They are reaching out in hope of lasting change.

In Everything, Give Thanks

God wants us to be in a state of continually giving thanks to Him, which means recognizing that He is always in a state of giving to us.
