  • Gratitude to God, Self-rated Health, and Depressive Symptoms.
    Krause, Neal, R. David Hayward, Deborah Bruce, and Cynthia Woolever (2014)
    Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion 53:2: 341-355.
    Analyzes 2008-2009 US. Congregational Life Survey data. Practice predicts volunteering, which in turn predicts having friends in the congregation.

  • Feeling grateful to God: A qualitative inquiry.
    Krause, Neal, Lindsay A. Evans, Gregory Powers, and R. David Hayward (2012)
    Journal of Positive Psychology 7:2: 119-130.
    4 themes emerged from qualitative interviews: 1) the interface between feelings of gratitude to God and stress, 2) ways in which feelings of gratitude to God are expressed, 3) whether God rewards the grateful & punishes the ungrateful, 4) the perceived benefits of feeling grateful to God.

  • Religious involvement, gratitude, and change in depressive symptoms over time.
    Krause, Neal (2009)
    International Journal for the Psychology of Religion 19:3: 155-172.
    The effects of economic difficulty on depressive symptoms are especially pronounced for older people who are less grateful. In contrast, financial difficulties fail to exert a statistically significant effect on depressive symptoms over time for older individuals who are especially grateful. More frequent church attendance & stronger God-mediated control beliefs are associated with positive changes in gratitude over time.

  • The social environment of the church and feelings of gratitude toward God.
    Krause, Neal, and Christopher G. Ellison (2009)
    Psychology of Religion and Spirituality 1:3: 191-205.
    People who attend church frequently are more likely to believe that their congregation is highly cohesive; those who worship in more cohesive congregations will receive more emotional support; those who receive more emotional support from coreligionists will be more likely to feel they have a close spiritual connection with others; & those who feel they are closely connected with other individuals will feel especially grateful to God.

  • Gratitude Toward God, Stress, and Health in Late Life.
    Krause, Neal (2006)
    Research on Aging 28: 163-183.
    Older women are more likely to feel grateful to God than older men. The effects of stress (e.g., living in a deteriorated neighborhood) on health are reduced for older people who feel more grateful to God. The potentially important stress-buffering properties of gratitude toward God emerge primarily among older women but not older men.

  • Religion, adversity and age: Religious experiences of low-income elderly women.
    Barusch, Amanda S. (1999)

    Examines religious experiences of women living in poverty in the United States. Results underscore the deep-seated religious commitment of this group. The dominant theme, mentioned more often than any other, was gratitude.
