One Thousand Gifts

Last November at the Women of Faith Conference in Kansas City I worked as a volunteer and I was able to hear Ann Voskamp speak. I have to admit that before I went to the conference and heard her speak I had not heard of her and her book One Thousand Gifts. But after listening to her speak I was moved and I started reading her blog on a daily basis and about a month later I bought a copy of her book and started reading it. Now another confession…I didn’t finish the book. I read through chapter 3 and then got busy and distracted with other things.

Since I decided that the theme for the month is “Count Your Blessings” I also thought what a great time to finish reading Ann’s book.

What I thought I would do is share my favorite quotes or questions from 2 chapters each week or thoughts that I was blessed with as I was reading.

And I invite you to share your thoughts if you have read the book and if you haven’t join me as a I read.

Schedule of Sharing

If you want to join me, leave a comment in the comment section. I was also thinking of adding a link party. What do you think?


 Join me this month as I count my blessings.
