I have picked up this book a number of times just because it is so lovely. For the month of May, we decided that because we all had so much going on that we would select a small, light easy read.
One Thousand Gifts
by Ann Voskamp
....is anything but small, light or easy.
Written about a journey to Joy by way of Gratitude, in journal format, this book is a heavy spiritual hitter. Reading it one time simply will not do. It really is a must read.
Initially, on the first take, most of the girls, complained that it was slow and depressing. However, by the end of the book everyone agreed that the message stood on it's own. We must learn the art of gratitude. This could be a book that changes your life.
If you let it.
Whether you like a "journal" type of style or not, you end up reading beauty in the poetry of her writing.
