The Hope Found in Gratitude Journaling (Episode 95)

On this week’s “You’ve Got This,” I talk with Kristina Schnack Kotlus is a two-time brain cancer survivor and author of the book I Quit: Facing Cancer with Faith, Family & Friends. She has a degree in comparative religion from George Mason University by way of Holy Cross College. She was baptized a Lutheran, currently attends an Assemblies of God church, and is married to a non-practicing Jew. Her writing has been published in numerous local magazines and newspapers, as well as on her own website, PwcMoms. Kristina was recognized as Blogger of the Year in Northern Virginia, 40 Under 40 in Northern Virginia, and an Influential Woman in Prince William County. She currently resides in Manassas, Va., with her husband and three children, whom she homeschools.

“A child’s hope index score is a better predicator to if they’ll be successful in life, in college, in their career, than their SAT score,” Kristina says. “Giving our children the ability to have hope and putting hope into practice in our families isn’t something that will get us through coronavirus—it will get us through life.”

Listen to the podcast for more insights and suggestions about the importance of recognizing your child’s uniqueness.
