Ann's beautiful way of expressing herself deeply touched me. She writes as a poet, with words that beg to be savored. Her call to live in thankfulness is a life-changer. Thanksgiving was indeed a life-changer for her, lifting her out of a life of rush and regret and despair. Thanksgiving helped her seize the moment and appreciate all the gifts around her. This book itself is absolutely a gift.
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.
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. :)
