One Thousand Gifts: A dare to live fully right where you are by Ann Voskamp

28Mar12

I am so glad that I bought this book instead of borrowing because it is one of those books that I will return to read again and maybe again. It is beautifully written and inspiring. Stuck in the muddle of everyday life and raising 6 children, Ann Voskamp seeks to find the “something more” that we all ache for to find meaning in the mundane. Layer upon layer she finds that deepening her faith through a heart of thankfulness awakens her to the beauty of the here and no. She excellently explains her “aha” moments that begin to awaken her heart. The centerpiece of her book is “eucahristeo” which is really a lifestyle of giving thanks, even in the bad moments. She doesn’t pretend to have all of the answers, but she does delve into how we can gracefully get through the times of “bad things happening to good people.” Honestly, I love my day to day life right now, but this book made me love it even more. Beautiful book, would definitely recommend.

5/5 stars. (post by Becky J)
