One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are by Ann VoskampJust 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 Gods gifts. It s only in this expressing of gratitude for the life we already have, we discover the life weve 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 Anns 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!
Ann Voskamp "One Thousand Gifts" 2/2
I f you had told me a few years ago that God puts big dreams in the hearts of women, I would have told you that you were right. These days, with a house full of four catalytic children, an adventurous husband, and this fun little thing called IF:Gathering , we have a whole lot of noise. And sometimes, I look back at that quieter life before and I think about what has changed.

Thank you for the recent visit and read on my Thanksgiving post. I'll take a look at this app too. Yep, the writting annoys the devil outta me too! I may just join you Jeanne! Haven't read the book, but I do peruse Ann's blog from time to time.

I love technology. I have an iPhone and iPad and believe me, I use them to their full potential. As a fan of Apps that help me grow in my faith, I decided to have a page dedicated for that purpose. This is awesome! Love the Prayer Tracker…been writing in my notes section…this is so much better.
