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.
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!
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, its 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.

EM5 Stars Out Of 5So beautifully writtenSeptember 9, 2014EMA wonderful book - beautifully and poetically written. It reached me at a time I needed and was a tremendous encouragement to me during a valley in my life. It's amazing how thankfulness can change your heart and your mind.
ohilovetoread4 Stars Out Of 5A classicSeptember 5, 2014ohilovetoreadQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This woman knows how to touch hearts. Her open heart and honesty grabbed me from the first page. She is chronicling hard lessons she has learned and in doing so she gently teaches those lessons. This book is deep and probing, sometimes shocking, shunning false piety, questioning yet trusting, real to the core. It elicited more emotion in me than any book ever. Her lessons of grace - learning to be thankful at all times - have made a permanent mark on this forgetful soul. Her style of writing is very poetic which at times I found to be an annoyance (another emotion...), and a hindrance to comprehension. That said, I am keeping this book to re-read. It's a classic.

I loved the poetic feel as our author led us and showed us how to be grateful for so many every day things that we so easily overlook. God is truly in the little things of life as well as the big if we just let only Him lead us.
