New York Times bestselling author Ann Voskamp invites you to embrace everyday blessings and embark on the transformative spiritual discipline of chronicling God's gifts.

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 discover a way of seeing that opens your eyes to ordinary amazing grace, a way of living that is fully alive, and a way of becoming present to God that brings you deep and lasting joy. It's only in the expression 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!

For extended study into the One Thousand Gifts message, Ann has also created the One Thousand Gifts video study and study guide, a One Thousand Gifts devotional, and a special gift edition. This title is also available in Spanish, Millar de Obsequios.

Our customer reviews

This is a profoundly poetic, honest and challenging book, which produces "shift" as you apply it to your life. Ann shares her story from the heart. It is beautifully crafted and has great truths in it for us all to apply to our lives in our differing situations. I have recommended this gem of a book to all my friends and people I meet as I find it to have a transforming view. I am buying it for gifts for Christmas and have started my gift list.show more

This is a very special book. I am reading with it in one hand and my bible in the other and my diary in front of me. So profound yet accessible uplifting thoughts about the centrality of thankfulness to unleashing the fullness of salvation in our lives here on earth, amongst the good, bad and indifferent events we confront. "Give thanks in all circimstances" . And I'm only up to chapter 2. I look forward to my mornings with this book!show more
