Just like you, Ann Voskamp hungers to live her one life well. Forget the bucket lists that have us escaping our everyday lives for exotic experiences. “How,” Ann wondered, “do we find joy in the midst of deadlines, debt, drama, and daily duties? What does the Christ-life really look like when your days are gritty, long—and sometimes even dark? How is God even here?” In One Thousand Gifts, Ann invites you to embrace everyday blessings and embark on the transformative spiritual discipline of chronicling God's gifts. It’s only in this expressing of gratitude for the life we already have, we discover the life we've always wanted … a life we can take, give thanks for, and break for others. We come to feel and know the impossible right down in our bones: we are wildly loved — by God. Let Ann's beautiful, heart-aching stories of the everyday give you a way of seeing that opens your eyes to ordinary amazing grace, a way of being present to God that makes you deeply happy, and a way of living that is finally fully alive. Come live the best dare of all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this book - a must read! An amazing & insightful book. Started my own gift list & found my relationship with God grow in a whole new way. It opened my eyes, helped slow down time and appreciate my good as well as the not so good gifts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this book - a must read! Wow, is really all I can say. I saw Ann on Full Circle promoting her book and I knew I just had to get it. I was at a point in my life that I was struggling with a lot of things. After seeing her and listening to her story, I just had to read her book. It is the best thing I have ever read. It is so touching and yet so very real to me. I have had tears throughout and many breakthroughs as I am searching for meaning to life and to find God's work. I especially like the references to the bible so I can compare and read more into it. Amazing read for anyone looking for the blessings in life in a world that seems almost negative and hurried.
