RLewis3 Stars Out Of 5good read but not for meFebruary 26, 2018RLewisQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 3I felt like this was a very tough read for me. I usually speed right through but this one didnt apply a lot to my life personally, however I still felt like I learned things I can apply to my life and give to others
Karen5 Stars Out Of 5The Broken WayJune 19, 2017KarenQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I watched the video of the first session twice, and cried both times. Watched it for the third time, in anticipation of showing it at our Women's Bible study tonight, and was even more fully impacted. The theme of "The Broken Way" has struck a chord with our women, and we have the highest registration EVER in the nine years of facilitating this group! 61 women! So, that says to me there is a lot of brokenness in our world, and people are looking for ways to deal with it! The videos are beautiful, reflective and thoughtful. VERY well done. The book is a bit of a struggle to adapt to Ann's writing style, but the content is rich, reflective and much depth! Rereading the first three chapters impacted me significantly, while the initial reading was a little harder to connect with. So, my experience is that the more one reflects on Ann's words and ideas, the richer they become! I am now thoroughly enthused by the entire book, as have read all but the last chapter so far, and as I told my group, 3 of the chapters alone are worth the price of the book! If one is willing to not just breeze through the book for information, but is willing to ponder, reflect and consider the themes and ideas, this book offers so, so much more depth than the average "read" in the Christian genre!
Carol Carroll3 Stars Out Of 5DifficultMay 25, 2017Carol CarrollQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0My group watched the first video and did not want to do the study. Comments included: "there's that beautiful young woman with the beautiful family and what she says is so depressing." So we opted not to continue with this. I'm really sorry that we didn't like it - if you've done 1,000 Gifts, this one is darker. I'm sure it will speak to some people, just not my ladies.
Books4JesusBrookfield, WIAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5ExcellentFebruary 13, 2017Books4JesusBrookfield, WIAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0The central question of Anns new book is How do you live with your one broken heart? As Ann unpacks what she has learned, we see a fresh look at Jesus being broken and given for us. We learn not only to thank God, but also to live in the fullness of Jesus being enough. Enough for all our brokenness, enough so that we enter into the wholeness of koinonia, community. Communion with each other that happens not only when we are broken, for we all are in some way, but also when we trust each other with our brokenness.
I could have underlined this entire book. If you enjoyed Anns style of writing in One Thousand Gifts, you will appreciate the continuation of that theme in her latest book.
Don Youts3 Stars Out Of 5Too Self-indulgentJanuary 17, 2017Don YoutsQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I absolutely delighted in her first book. Her ability with wordsmithing is incredible. I struggled with this one because the focus seemed painfully self-focused. I know we all have pain in our lives but this seemed so obsessive.
