“Selections from One Thousand Gifts: Finding Joy in What Really Matters” By Ann Voskamp

Pairing her own artistic photography with profound insights from her blockbuster best-seller, “One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are”, Ann contemplates: How do we find joy in the midst of deadlines, debt and all these daily duties? What does a life of joy look like when your days are long, hard and sometimes dark? Where is this good God, and what is He providing here and now? “Begin to wake to the wonder of the small. Begin to find joy in what really matters,” Ann writes. “Begin to change your one wild life.”
Such a beautiful, beautiful book; wonderful for my coffee table! I love to share it with everyone because there truly is joy in the simple everyday things! The photos paired with the inspirational writings are so breathtaking, it leaves nothing to be desired. It opens the readers eyes to noticing the beauty that surrounds us everyday. I'm so happy I chose to review this book and i also downloaded the free app on my iphone for a little inspiration on the go, it's available here www.onethousandgifts.com/get-the-app. I'm now also looking forward to reviewing Ann's first book, just have to find it!! I would definitely reccomend it to anyone, it is also a great book for someone going through dark times, or illness as I found it brings about happiness and inspiration for every situation, helping you find the joy in your own life. Ann is a very gifted writer and I look forward to more of her books.
