One Thousand Gifts beckons you to leave the parched ground of pride, fear, and white-knuckle control and abandon yourself to the God who overflows your cup.  As Ann Voskamp invites you into her own moments of grace, she gently teaches you how to biblically lament loss, turning pain into poetry; intentionally embrace a lifestyle of radical gratitude; and slow down and catch God in the moment.  Not a book merely to read, One Thousand Gifts begs to be embraced as a dynamic, interactive primer inviting you to engage with truths that will serve up the depths of God’s joy and transform your life forever.  It’s a dare to LIVE FULLY right where you are.

Like most readers, Ann Voskamp hungers to live her one life well.  Forget the bucket lists about once-in-a-lifetime experiences.  “How,” Voskamp wondered, “do we find joy in the midst of deadlines, debt, drama, and daily duties?  What does a life of gratitude look like when your days are gritty, long, and sometimes dark?  What is God providing here and now?”  A beautifully practical guide to living a life of joy, One Thousand Gifts invites you to wake up to God’s everyday blessings.  As Voskamp discovered, in giving thanks for the life she already had, she found the life she’d always wanted.  Following Voskamp’s grace-bathed reflections on her farming, parenting, and writing life, you will embark on a transformative spiritual discipline of chronicling gifts.

I read the book myself and I thought it was great – I can definitely see myself using the principles in it to help with finding things to be grateful about, especially when my daughter tests my patience when we homeschool.  It would be great for a woman’s Bible study as well, though.  And there is even a study guide for that purpose to go along with the book.  I love that there is also a devotional book along the same theme too – I can see myself using that to start my day on the right note, and have added it to my Christmas wish list. 🙂

I am able to give away a copy of One Thousand Gifts to one of my readers!
