Grace Trail: 5 Steps Toward Your Best Life®
No matter who you are, no matter what you’ve been through, Grace Trail® will connect where you are now with where you want to go.
You can walk the trail anywhere, anytime, with anyone by just showing up and asking the Grace Trail questions. As a life coach, I created this resiliency model in 2012 to help cope with the worry of having a son in combat in Afghanistan. Grace Trail has guided thousands of people to begin a simple conversation around joy, hope and resiliency.
Plymouth, MA is the site of the original, beloved path, but it is not the only one. Grace Trail can be walked anywhere, from the comfort of your kitchen to the office or any outdoor spot.
By asking and reflecting on key questions about the five components of GRACE – Gratitude, Release, Acceptance, Challenge and Embrace – you will find that you are walking off your worries and accessing hope.
Move toward the life you were meant to live with Grace Trail. Grace Trail is the Trail that leads you back to you.
GRACE Trail® is dedicated to all the courageous survivors of life… anyone, anywhere who is determined to not settle for less. I celebrate you in your choice to ‘walk off‘ your own personal struggles… back into possibility.Anne Jolles
Blaze Your Own Trail
The Original Trail:
There is an actual, now-famous trail in beautiful Nelson Park in Plymouth Harbor, MA that Anne created, marked by special grace stone trail markers with each letter of grace painted on it along the way.
Make Your Own Trail
Even if you can’t get to Plymouth, you can put your sneakers on, open your front door or get out of your car and start walking – anywhere, anytime, with anyone. Do it at work, on the train, in traffic, out to coffee with a friend or colleague… Just engage and ask the questions. You really can’t do this wrong.
