One Thousand Gifts



Many of you know how much I enjoy Ann Voskamp's writing. (And you might even remember how I "met" her.) My parents gave me her new book, and I'm slowly reading it. The message has already changed my life, though. It's what I've learned with her, from her, through her, over the past few years. I'm going to try something a little different for me: reading this book with an online book club. We'll see how much I'll be able to participate and how much I'll want to share...I don't know yet. I would encourage anyone and everyone to get Ann's book and read it!

Oh, also, my mother-in-law and her friend will be interviewing Ann on their online radio show today. I usually listen live and participate in the chat there, but I don't know if I'll be able to this time. If I can, I would love to "see" you there, and if not, I'll listen from the archives later.

I LOVE this trailer! And, that is Ann's voice and her words! It is so amazing! We are very excited about interviewing her. It IS a very special book! I can see how Ann's message about God and His Holiness can transform our lives! I am reading the book slowly, as well. I think that's the only way to take it all in! Love you, Phyllis!

Thanks for mentioning this today. I was ordering some school stuff for DD today and included the book for myself too. :-D

Phyllis, Thank you again for mentioning this! I am half-way through the book, and I am SO GLAD to be reading it.

I'm going to order this book for my Kindle! Someone recently gave me a check to be used JUST for me, so I have more than enough for the book. I'm going to try to join the book club, even if I'm a little late. Thanks for the recommendation!
