Congratulations to Our Julia Chester Emery Contest Winners!

October 26, 2017

First off, a BIG thank you to everyone who participated in our special Julia Chester Emery birthday celebration! It was really hard to choose a winner for the photo contest, so rest assured, we’ll do it again. Thank you for being creative, silly, and celebratory with us! We hope that you enjoyed (and we know some of you are still using) all of the new materials and that they are helping you continue to encourage and teach a personal spiritual discipline of gratitude. All of the photos that were submitted for the photo contest are available here, in case you want some UTO inspiration. A BIG congratulations and thank you to our winners!
