    Wake Up to a Thousand Blessings

    Monday, June 01, 2015

    I want to recommend a book to you that I believe will be a blessing to you in many ways. Ann Voskamp’s book One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are will challenge you to embrace a lifestyle of gratitude.

    Here is the summary from the back cover:

    One Thousand Gifts beckons you to leave the parched ground of pride, fear, and white-knuckle control and abandon yourself to the God who overflows your cup. As Ann Voskamp invites you into her own moments of grace, she gently teaches you how to biblically lament loss, turning pain into poetry; intentionally embrace a lifestyle of radical gratitude; and slow down and catch God in the moment.

    Not a book merely to read, One Thousand Gifts begs to be embraced as a dynamic, interactive primer inviting you to engage with truths that will serve up the depths of God’s joy and transform your life forever.

    We all need to be challenged to abandon ourselves and allow God to fill our cups. I pray you will get this book and allow it to minister to you in many ways.

    Help us continue providing resources of care for pastors and their families.
