About

Hello and welcome! I’m Stephanie Kanak, the founder of QuotesGratitude.com. Since 2012 I’ve been blogging about quotes, gratitude, and inspiration. I am not a gratitude expert. I am just someone seeking to fill my life with it and hopefully, inspire others to do so too.

What you’ll find here on QuotesGratitude.com

Quote Collections

I love quotes. I love to use quotes in my cards, gifts and journals. So, you’ll see a lot of Quote Collections here on QuotesGratitude.com. Some collections, like “15 Quotes to Celebrate Life”, are pretty generic and can apply to just about everyone looking to be inspired or encouraged. Others, like my collections for Special Needs Parents or those serving in the Military are pretty specific. Somewhere is a quote collection that will speak to you! But, if you don’t see what you looking for, feel free to tweet me, stop by my Facebook wall or email me to request it.

Photos with Quotes

I’m also a very visual person. I love creating graphics for some of my favorite quotes. These are great to share with friends on social media or to print out and post on your motivation/vision boards. You can find my Gallery of Photos with Quotes that I have created here. You can also check out my massive 5000 pin collection on Pinterest. I pin new quotes there every day from all over the Internet. Or if you are an Instagrammer, follow me there. I recently created an account where I will be posting my own creative work.

My Favorite Quotes and other Fun Stuff

Since I run a quote site, I get asked all the time what my favorite quote is. I have so many favorite quotes that it’s just too hard to pick one. So here are my top three (this week):

“We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.” ~ Frederick Keonig

“This is what the past is for! Every experience God gives us, every person He puts in our lives is the perfect preparation for the future that only He can see.” ~ Corrie ten Boom, The Hiding Place

“Time changes everything. That’s what people say. It’s not true. Doing things changes things. Not doing things leaves them exactly as they were.” ~from the TV series, “House”

Family Life: I live with my hubby, Dan, and our 2 children in a small town just outside of Philadelphia, PA. We’ve been married for 14 years. Dan works for a local college in the area and I work from home doing freelance writing & social media management.

Favorite Flower: I used to work in a flower shop in high school and college. It was a dream job because I love flowers. My favorite flowers are Alstromaria and the Lavande Rose.

Can’t Live Without: Kale. I eat kale leaves every day. Every day. Seriously. I do.

Music I Listen to While Writing: Harry Connick, Jr., George Winston’s “Summer”, Nichole Nordeman, Bruno Mars, or Colbie Callet, etc. I have a Pandora Station I created with some of my favorites. You can listen to it online HERE.

Places I Go When I Need Inspiration: book stores, Panera Bread, local artist’s gallery, and paper/craft stores.
