One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are (Google eBook)
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, long—and 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. It’s 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!

Review: One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You AreUser Review - Marjorie Tinnell - Goodreads
Really enjoyed this book. Helped me to remain focused on being grateful and looking for things to be thankful for every day. The writing may not appeal to all. It is not really a story as much as the author pouring out the thoughts in her head. Read full review
a word to live and die by
a sanctuary of time
what in the world in all this world is grace?
what do you want? the place of seeing god
seeing through the glass
how will he not also?
empty to fill
the joy of intimacy
