It's not about religion ...
It's about APPRECIATION as a state of being!

What Is ThankGodI?


Because we become fully empowered by being thankful for EVERY part of our lives...


ThankGodi provides online courses, e-books, stories, articles, media, and live events on using the gifts you gain from your challenges to empower your life.

Our Philosophy


Hidden beneath the emotions that often blind us, there exists an underlying balance. By learning to see this balance, we become able to appreciate ALL our experiences – the “negative” as “well as the “positive.” 



Discovering the balance around distressing events and circumstances is empowering, inspiring, and life changing. We’re here to help you appreciate the gifts that are hidden in each of your challenges. 

Our Stories

Discovering your Thankgodi story can change your life. Sharing it can change the world.


Each ThankGodi story contains an extraordinary experience and life lesson. Trauma, abuse, death of a loved one, a life-threatening illness – each presents an overwhelming challenge and a remarkable solution.
