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, longand 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. Its 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!
Ann Voskamp is wife of one good farmer, the home-educating mama to a half-dozen exuberant kids, and author of the New York Times Bestseller, The Greatest Gift, and One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are, a New York Times 60 week bestseller that has sold more than one million copies, the royalties of which the Voskamp family has given all away, the joy always in giving the gift back.
Named by Christianity Today as one of 50 women most shaping culture and the church today, and a partner with Compassion International as a global advocate for needy children, Ann's a regular loser of library books, usually has a sink full of soaking pots, sees empty laundry baskets rarer than a blue moon, and believes that the sky and fresh mercy over the farm is large and all is grace. Her blog, one of the Top 10 Christian blogs on the web, has become a daily well for the weary and soul-thirsty: www.aholyexperience.com.
Following HimAge: 35-44Gender: female1 Stars Out Of 5A Thousand Fingernails on a Chalkboard!April 18, 2013Following HimAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1Not only is Ann Voskamp a horrible author, writing in her melodic, sing songy way, her voice has a terrible shriek!
I do not understand all of the hype brought on by this book. This author has done nothing grand except state the obvious-be thankful for everything you have! To say that she states the obvious is an understatement though, because she has so little to truly say, but she writes it among a million other irrelevant words! If she were to just take out all of the poetry intermingled within her so called "story", she would hardly have enough words left over for a brief flyer!
The worst part about the audio CD is the fact that she reads the book herself. Sometimes speaking so fast you can't understand her, and then other times speaking so slow she draaags out the word, so long, and so quietly you can't even hear it! And THEN to top it all off, every ending to her words leaves a high pitched whistle in your ears! If you can google a youtube video of her you will see what I am saying. It is terribly horrible!
It is the strangest phenomenon the craziness surrounding and following this author. Is this seriously the best author these 5-star reviewers have ever heard or read? There has to be someone, something, better out there.
Please take the advice of the 1-star reviews, it isn't worth wasting your money on. Its all hype and nothing you havent heard before. Although you probably havent heard it written in such a strange melodic manner that's for sure!
Q: i want to know if this new audio cd coming out is read by the author? Ann Voskamp's One Thousand Gifts
Yes, this is read by the author.
