One Thousand Gifts






Reading One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp has changed my world. Altered my thinking. Shaken up the way I perceive life. Just watching the video moved me.

I finished the book a couple of days ago and passed it on to someone else. I underlined something on almost every single page.

A friend challenges the author to try and make a list of one thousand things she's grateful for. Doing this changes her life--as well as so many others.

Just watch the video...see what you think.

Love,
Julie

Camy, I totally agree. I think this book should be required reading for humanity.

I'm reading Ann's book, too. Stunning and beautiful. Just ordered four copies -- gifts for some of the gifts in my life.

Shouldn't it, Marybeth! Totally agree. Great idea to give for gifts, Jeanne.

I want to read it a few times. So much good stuff to absorb.

After watching that video, all I can say is,"Wow." I'm heading over to Amazon.com right now to put that on my Wish List.

You won't be sorry, Ms. Blase.
