This page is dedicated to a book that has literally had the most profound impression on my daily meanderings, from the way I view creation and all its wonders, to my relationship with my children and those around me.
One Thousand Gifts & The Greatest Gift will forever remain gifts unwrapped within my heart. The joy that I have experienced through Ann's words... I just can't explain, all I can do is give them as gifts and hope that joy will rise up in the heart. Every thing that Ann Voskamp has written is of such humility and reverent beauty.
I pray that this page will be a blessing and that you will pick this book up. It is not a book that you want to rust through. You will want to find a quiet place somewhere that will allow you to meditate on her words. And allow your Heavenly Father to speak to you.
Yeah…wondrous, amazing you, just looking around for Deep Peace and True Beauty. You hunting for a corner of joy and grace and God…and stillness.
I’m Ann Voskamp, a plain Ann without even the fanciful “e”, wife to The Farmer, mama to six, determined laundress, chief bottle washer, desperate Grace-clinger.
Honestly, I’m a bit of a mess. It’s okay, really. Grace is the most amazing of all. I had a full-tuition
I scratch out words in an award-winning serious for curious kids, A Child’s Geography (Knowledge Quest Press, 2007), of which all profits are donated to Compassion. I write for DaySpring’s site, (in)Courage, and am a contributing editor for The High Calling. I’m an advocate for Compassion International, traveling and speaking on behalf of the needy. The poor have made me rich and telling the stories of those who need a voice has changed mine.
I wrote a book, One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are (Zondervan). You can read some of the crazy reviews about it right here.
But the only words that really matter? Are the ones I live. This convicts me.
I write everyday on my blog, www.aholyexperience.com about this wondrously messy, everyday-holy life. It’d be pure grace to walk a bit together.
