In One Thousand Gifts, author and blogger Ann Voskamp invites you into her own moments of grace, gently teaching you how to biblically lament loss, turning pain into poetry and intentionally embracing a lifestyle of radical gratitude.
Discover a way of seeing that opens your eyes to everyday amazing grace, a way of living that is fully alive, and a way of experiencing the constant presence of God that will bring you deep and lasting joy. There is purity in simplicity and a breathtaking beauty that can be found even in life's slightest details and heartbreaking moments. Ann Voskamp welcomes you in to explore her grace-bathed life of farming, parenting, and writing, and encourages you to live a life filled with gratitude, no matter where you are.

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's the wife of one fine, down-to-earth farmer; a book-reading mama to a posse of seven; and the author of the New York Times bestsellers The Greatest Gift and Unwrapping the Greatest Gift, and the sixty-week New York Times bestseller One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are, which has sold more than one million copies and has been translated into more than eighteen languages.
Named by Christianity Today as one of fifty women most shaping culture and the church today, Ann knows unspoken brokenness and big country skies and an intimacy with God that touches wounded places. Millions do life with her at her daily photographic online journal, one of the Top 10 most widely read Christian websites: www.aholyexperience.com.

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.

Ann Voscamp is personal and passionate in this book. I began to see God with the renewed perspective of a child who is well loved by her heavenly father! The "leather" cover makes it much more durable, and this is a full copy,not abridged!
FetchingSights5 Stars Out Of 5failed to meet MY expectationsApril 18, 2016FetchingSightsQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5So, to be perfectly honest, I nearly put the book down just because Ann's writing was sooo different than anything I've read before and so on the edge of not making sense. But I felt compelled to keep reading, and then it happened...there in the midst of this most unusual writing was an experience like none other...where we come face to face with God. And his Spirit in us recognizes the Spirit in the words being poured out from the depths of unimaginable grace...God's Glory shines bright through Ann Voskamp...oh how bright it shines. Read this one with eyes focused heavenward, with heart open to his Spirit, hear his voice, see God's face and Give Thanks to Jesus for EVERYTHING!

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.
