About this item

In the tradition of Anne Morrow Lindbergh and other contemplative essayists, Ann Voskamp applies her warm and passionate prose to the everyday things in life, finding inspiration and comfort, if not always answers, there. Here she meditates on the meaning of loss and how it can urge us on to live fully and devour the present. Her writing is informed by (and quotes from) Bible scripture, but can be enjoyed by people of any faith as a call to mindfulness and gratitude.
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 a life of gratitude look like when your days are gritty, long, and sometimes dark? What is God providing here and now?'In One Thousand Gifts, Ann invites you to embrace everyday blessings and embark on the transformative spiritual discipline of chronicling God's gifts. As Ann discovered, when we give thanks, we find ourselves wildly loved by God. In expressing 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. Let Ann's beautiful, heart-aching stories of the everyday give you a way of seeing that opens your eyes to thanksgiving, a way of being present to God that makes you deeply happy, and a way of living so you are not afraid to die. Come feast at the table of joy.

Buy this book! The price is a bargain, especially for a book that is so perspective-changing. I am reading it for the second time, and I feel it is one of those that could be read over and over. When my friend recommended it, I said, "I know, I've heard of that book, but I don't want to read a boo...see moreof the reviewer's review
