Last week, the GRIT team gathered over pad thai and sticky mango rice to reflect on an incredible 2018 and dream about the months ahead. We’re so grateful for the conversations we’ve shared and the relationships we’ve made so far, and we look forward to what’s next.

GRIT interns meeting

Buckle up! GRIT has some big plans for 2019, and we can’t wait to share them with you.

For now, we leave you with a prayer for the new year.


Help me to make today better than yesterday.

Help me to learn one more thing about you.

Help me to trust you with my next decision.

Help me find one more reason to love you.

Help me to be kinder to myself and others.

Help me to be patient when it’s most pressing.

Help me to be generous when it’s least convenient.

Help me to know when to speak and when to listen.

Help me to be tender to the pain of others and responsive to your whispers.

Help me to make today better than yesterday.
