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. :)
This is one of my favorite books that I have ever read. It is raw and incredibly touching. I really enjoy the way that Ann Voskamp writes. It's like living poetry. This book will change you. And if you decide to take the challenge of listing gifts yourself, this book will continue to speak into your life for a very long time. What a blessing.
It was a very good book. It was hard to get into, at first, at least for me. Her writing style is different than I am used to. But a great reminder of being thankful for God's many gifts. Now on to the Journal and my 1000 gifts I see in my life. I want to start over and read it again. I feel I might need a reminder down the road. Making sure I am thankful on a daily, hourly, minute by minute basis. We live because of Him. We need to thank Him for it. Even through the trials life throws at us. And she had many. Can I say I am faithful through it all.
