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!

This book will change your life.

I requested this book to be on Audible. Don't know if my request is the reason it's here, but I'm so grateful they got it so fast. I've known about it for nearly two months, and anxiously waited for it to be released in hardback. Couldn't stand the wait and bought it on Kindle, read it in one day, then immediately started over, so I can savor every drop. I pre-ordered 6 copies to share, and I'll be ordering 10 more this weekend. I cannot get enough of this book. The day it was released, it was #12 on the Amazon bestseller list, and now, 10 days later, it has over 150 5 star reviews. This book cannot adequately be described; it truly must be experienced. It teaches how learning to accept all of the events in our lives with gratitude brings God's spirit to us and us closer to Him. You'll read it (and/or listen to it, as the case may be), and then you'll read it again and again. Do yourself a BIG favor and get this book. You can thank me later. :)

Absolute Must Read

The book was beautifully written and thoughtfully narrated, and the "project" was meticulously undertaken. I appreciated the author's honest account and that she didn't try to fool us into believing that every aspect of this was easy or wonderful. I loved the glimpse into her personal life while sticking to the point. If I could buy a copy for every woman I know, I would. Do yourself a favor and read this, then allow yourself to sink deeply into "Eucharisteo" and see if you aren't transformed just as much as the author. Absolutely delightful.
