Affirming One Another Through Stories
Len Froyen

At a time when it is common to want more, more, more, to believe that life never delivers enough, this slender volume presents a different path, one that leads to growth, contentment, and a sense of purpose. Through selected personal stories, the author presents a different way to examine our experiences through the lens of gratitude.

"The importance of gratitude for our mental and emotional well-being has been emphasized by science for decades now. But no research study can match the power of a memorable story. Froyen's moving personal stories do more than illuminate the mind, they touch the heart – gratitude's necessary home."
George Simon, Ph.D., Psychologist, Author of the International Bestseller, “In Sheep’s Clothing: Understanding and Dealing With Manipulative People”

“Guided by gratitude, the storyline of your life will turn toward more adventure and a better, more fulfilling ending.  You’ll be grateful you read this book.”
Brian D. McLaren, Author, Speaker, Activist (

“My heart grew in gratitude as I read this book and I believe the stories Len tells here will help you go into your own stories.”
Sister JoAnn Haney, OSF, Sister of Saint Francis, Spiritual Director at Holy Spirit Retreat Center

"A powerful antidote to self-centeredness on all levels. Gratitude offers story-centered proof that a life lived in thankfulness is a life well lived indeed.”
Scott Cawelti, Emeritus Professor of Literature, University of Northern Iowa

“These are the stories to remember when we are confused about what really matters, or afraid that we have fallen too far short of God’s expectations.”
Dave Cushing, Director, Adult Faith Formation, Waterloo, IA Catholic Parishes
