One Thousand Gifts {and a Giveaway!}

One Thousand GIfts

Have you read One Thousand Gifts yet?

In this incredible, life-changing book, Ann Voskamp captures so eloquently and beautifully, the mystery and the awesomeness of Mighty God, encouraging you and me to LIVE FULLY right where we are.

Do you find yourself hurrying about from this to that?  Fretting over the house, the kids, the chores, the bills?  Have you lost perspective?  Given up hope?  Can you remember the big picture worth fighting for anymore?

One Thousand Gifts is an open invitation – a dare – for you to slow down, take in and appreciate God in His fullness, in all His glory, everywhere. In the good stuff and the laughter.  And in the difficulty that you don’t understand, too.

Is He with you?  Does He care?

Yes, He’s everywhere, and even more so when we look for Him.  And yeah, He cares, and the more we count His lavish blessings on us, the more we appreciate, the more we give thanks.

And the more we give thanks….and specifically, record these blessings, too numerous to count, one by one they begin to reveal the things we didn’t even really know were gifts.

This crazy-dare gift list–it’s language lessons in eucharisteo!!  It’s learning how to be truly thankful – whether empty or full. That is a secret worth spending a life on learning.
