One Thousand Gifts dares you to live fully, right where you are!
Just like you, Ann Voskamp hungers to live her one life well. "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?” Let Ann's beautiful, heart-aching stories of the everyday give you a way of seeing that opens your eyes to ordinary amazing grace and a way of being present to God that makes you deeply happy.
"Isn't it here? The wonder? Why do I spend so much of my living hours struggling to see it? Do we truly stumble so blind that we must be affronted with blinding magnificence for our blurry soul-sight to recognize grandeur? The very same surging magnificence that cascades over our every day here. Who has time or eyes to notice? All my eyes can seem to fixate on are the splatters of disappointment across here and me."
Ann Voskamp, One Thousand Gifts
In One Thousand Gifts, Voskamp 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 that 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.
With more than a million copies sold, One Thousand Gifts opens up a way of discovering the life you've always wanted within the life you already have. For far too long, there has been a misconception that being joyful is what makes you grateful, when in reality it's being grateful that makes you joyful. This beautiful leather-like edition with gold ribbon bookmark and supple brown cover makes a beautiful gift or personal keepsake.
Come embark on a transformative spiritual discipline and discover a way of living that is finally—fully—alive.

Well, if i were headed to a desert island, this is one book i would bring to go through again and again. Slowly, preciously, deeply, the author takes us closer and closer to Jesus simply by giving Him thanks. It is full of simple and precious wonder. It is a life changer.
