Publisher's Description

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!

Author Bio

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.

Author Info

Ann Voskamp is a writer with DaySpring (a division of Hallmark), a contributing editor to Laity Lodge’s The High Calling, and a global advocate for the poor traveling for Compassion International. With an educational background in psychology and education from York University and the University of Waterloo, Ann and her husband are farmers in the Mennonite countryside of southwestern Ontario, raising a half dozen kids, crops of corn, and the roof in praise. She writes every day about the everyday wonder every day at www.aholyexperience.com.

As long as giving thanks is possible, joy is possible, according to Ann Voskamp, in her book One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are. She believes there is always something to give thanks for because God is constantly bestowing His grace on us.

The book begins with Voskamp's birth. She describes it abstractly with a poetic flourish, which to an inattentive reader works more as a maze than a picture. As the book continues, Voskamp writes of her discovery of eucharisteo – meaning gratefulness – and of her journey through chronicling a thousand gifts from God.

The journey is where the book speeds up. As Voskamp shares some of the gifts and the events surrounding how she attained them, the reader indwells the pages, sees the scenes described, and understands the lessons shared. As Voskamp compares God allowing pain in life to a surgeon cutting her son open in order to heal him, a now attentive reader sees as Voskamp sees, that "all is grace."

One Thousand Gifts is contemplative nonfiction with storytelling appeal. Voskamp's writing is flowery and poetic, so, if read quickly, it’s hard to understand. Sentence structure is shaky, with an overabundance of fragments and run-ons. The message is meaningful and worthwhile for believers having difficulty being joyful, but if readers will not slow down and pay close attention, the message will remain over their heads.

One Thousand Gifts is a worthwhile book to readers wishing to delve deeper into the practice of giving thanks to the Lord. For those who focus carefully on each word printed, its lessons will prove beneficial and, likely, by the time the last page is turned, the readers will be chronicling their own thousand gifts. I know I was. – Meredith Sell, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    I was just coming back onboard with the Lord when a dear friend gave me this book initially. I know God has used it in my life for perspective and gratitude at a much deeper level. Would highly recommend this book - the writing is excellent, the insights relevant, and you finish feeling like you have been having a conversation with a dear friend.

    This is one of the most meaningful books I have ever read. And I have read many.

    Beautifully written. So simple yet so profound.

    So much to go back to and ponder.

    A way of life - the life of constant gratitude to our Lord - that I want to live daily...

    Will be giving as gifts to those I love.

    a truly inspirational book! "Life-changing" is not a phrase I normally use, but this book is really, really good. Ann takes you through her discovery of "eucharisteo," as she practices applying it to her daily life, deepening her relationship with God, & allowing Him access to change her heart-- altering her view of & reaction to the daily normals & difficults, & bringing real healing to some deep old wounds.. A great, practical guide to experiencing & living real thankfulness. :)

    This is one of my favorite books that I have ever read. It is raw and incredibly touching. I really enjoy the way that Ann Voskamp writes. It's like living poetry. This book will change you. And if you decide to take the challenge of listing gifts yourself, this book will continue to speak into your life for a very long time. What a blessing.
