This five-session DVD, designed as a component of the small group Bible study, One Thousand Gifts, features best-selling author Ann Voskamp as she helps watchers ponder the questions of finding joy in midst of everything from the typical grind daily chores and deadlines to the calamity every person eventually faces. 'How,' Ann muses, 'do you break the bondage of fear that has white-knuckle control on your life and instead embrace the everyday blessings that immerse you in Christ's fullness? How can you live life with a heart overflowing with delight?' In this five-session, video-based small group bible study, Ann encourages participants to take on the life-changing discipline of journaling God's gifts---to find the good in life in all circumstances. It's only in this expression of gratitude for the life we already have, that we discover the life we've always wanted ... a life we can take, give thanks for, and use to serve others. In it, we come to feel and know the impossible right down to our core: We are wildly loved by God. Embark on this personal, honest and fresh exploration of what it means to be deeply fulfilled, wholly happy, and fully alive. This DVD is designed for use together with the One Thousand Gifts Participant Guide (sold separately) and includes discussion questions for individuals and groups, between session devotions, DVD teaching overviews, and a helpful leader's guide. When used in together, the small group study DVD and Participant Guide provide you with a practical tool that can grow your faith. Sessions include: 1. Attitude of Gratitude2. Grace in the Moment3. All is Grace4. Trust: The Bridge to Joy5. Empty to Fill
