about

In this five-session small group Bible study (DVD/digital video sold separately), bestselling author Ann Voskamp helps watchers ponder the questions of finding joy in midst of everything from the typical grind daily chores and deadlines to the calamity every person eventually faces.

“How,” Ann muses, “do you break the bondage of fear that has white-knuckle control on your life and instead embrace the everyday blessings that immerse you in Christ’s fullness? How can you live life with a heart overflowing with delight?”

In this study, Ann encourages participants to take on the life-changing discipline of journaling God's gifts—to find the good in life in all circumstances. It’s only in this expression of gratitude for the life we already have, that we discover the life we've always wanted … a life we can take, give thanks for, and use to serve others. In it, we come to feel and know the impossible right down to our core: We are wildly loved by God.

Embark on this personal, honest and fresh exploration of what it means to be deeply fulfilled, wholly happy, and fully alive.

Sessions include: 

  1. Attitude of Gratitude
  2. Grace in the Moment
  3. All Is Grace
  4. Trust: The Bridge to Joy
  5. Empty to Fill 

Designed for use with the One Thousand Gifts Video Study (sold separately).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eloquent and Beautiful Ann's words are beautiful and powerful - allowing you to connect with your own story as she shares her own. I also happened to pick up the leather binding of this book and it is lovely - just like the words it holds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspiring I love how Ann Voskamp's books are always so intimate. You feel like you are right there with her, seeing what she's seeing and feeling what she's feeling. She contemplates real life, everyday things, and how these are God's gift to us, how we can be more thankful for them and how they bless us.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Surprisingly unenjoyable It was a big surprise to me that I didn't enjoy this book. It really rings true to a lot of my own beliefs and the ability to be appreciative of the small things in life. Unfortunately, I felt that this read in a style that was unappealing to me. Almost poetic for the length of the book? I'm sure that style really appealed to many but not me. Again, I really appreciate and love the message that this book is about so I'm glad it is out there, I just wish that I had enjoyed it more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful This book will seriously capture your attention. It had me in tears at times. I think everyone can relate to the story being told. And honestly I don't think I have ever read a more beautiful account of every day life.

Will make you want to count the blessings in your own life and get you to open your eyes to all the amazing and unexpected gifts that are all around you, all the time, every day. And will make you see God, the hard times, the challenges, and even the heart break, in a whole new light. Highly recommend this book!

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have for every women! I’ve heard so much about this book before I requested it. Many kept saying how life changing it would be to read it. I was picked by curiosity and decided to review it. From the first chapter, I sense that the author was unto something. After all she has many followers on her blog and many are walking into her footsteps of gratitude on their own blog as well. I was hooked. I also follow in her footsteps since I started reading her book. Weekly, I post my gifts from the previous weeks. Sometimes I even include some pictures. Ann has touched my heart and helped me to switch my thinking. It’s a 180 degree turn – let me tell you. In the midst of our daily life, when you think that maybe life would be different without certain things, you see what you have in a different way. I am homeschooling my four kids. There are days when it’s not easy while other days are just plain fun. I have doubts sometimes. But when I take Ann’s perspective and see the little things that blesses me on a daily basis, I am not feeling as discourage or stressed. It is a good therapy and way cheaper than going to see someone I find. Anne pours out her heart in this book and somehow I feel closer to her as I get to know her thoughts, her emotions, her dreams, her struggles and so on. She based her book on a simple word – Eucharisteo – which means to be grateful, feel thankful, give thanks. But how can you be grateful in the midst of business struggles, problems, a busy family, homeschool to be done,… You get the picture I think. Well it’s simply to sit down and see what is a blessing in the midst of all this. Simple things like a son old enough to babysit his own siblings who are napping so I can go get some brown sugar because he wants to make chocolate chip cookies (it just happened today!). I have come into realizing that being blessed can be done in a multitude of ways – neighbors bringing blueberries from Lac St-Jean, friends calling to let us know they have clothes for us, a couple giving us a foosball table for the kids to play with, four bookcases found at the curb since spring, the birds flying in the sky, the plants given to us so we can have a more beautiful entrance, a squirrel walking on the fence when we never seen one in the area before, frogs, loons on the lake, our RV, my husband, my kids, homeschooling them – yes even if there are days that are more difficult… There are also blessings in disguise which are blessings you wouldn’t expect when someone give you something. We had one experienced like this recently. Needless to say, my eyes are more opened now and I can see them more easily. So I thank Anne for writing the book One Thousand Gifts and I plan to continue the challenge to list my one thousand gifts from above. I would like to challenge every one of my readers (and my family and friends) to read Anne’s book. Your perspective will change – guaranteed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspiring and challenging I love this book and the way Ann teaches us all to see the gifts of beauty and goodness all around us - God present in our lives, blessing us in the most mundane and ordinary places. It is truly life changing to choose to see gifts in every moment and express gratitude for where we are right now and what we have (not where we're planning to go and what we're hoping to get). These lessons in gratitude bring huge blessings of peace, contentment and joy in the everyday. And what a great book to share with friends...I've been giving this book to girlfriends and spreading the joy of its wisdom.
