Publisher's Summary

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!

    "The bedrock of relationship."

    I haven't read this book - I have devoured it. Twice in hard copy - twice in audio. Powerful. Rich. Truth. Life altering.

    "Disappointing"

    I bought this book because one, it came recommended, and two, I wanted to hear about giving thanks and living in the moment. However, these premises aren't new and have been written and talked about for years. There seemed to be something very off for me about this book, and I did not finish it. I agree we should be grateful and live in the moment, but I found her style of writing off-putting and difficult to listen to. I would not recommend this book.

    "Must be listened to, not read silently"

    It is good to HEAR the author read this aloud. It is too poetic and emotional to be read silently.
