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!


  • The piece of the puzzle...

    that was missing. Life adjusted with the practice of this mindset simply puts everything into working order. I find myself being peaceful, open, generous, empathetic, kind and content in ways that I daydreamed about. In a way that regenerates the same and is not exhausting. Ann’s writing style is so visual, so tactile that the information settles into your life without study. Don’t miss an opportunity to see the videos that she made to augment the book group- they are lovely.
