A few years ago I picked up this book, – well really let me back track a little here. My very close and dear friend Debbie Bouckley; A fellow blogger and the creative director of Restored Ministries, told me about this book and even picked me up a copy of it. So I picked up the book and started reading.
It changed me.
It is right up there for me with Rick Warren’s Purpose Driven Life and William P. Young’s The Shack, as one of my most favorite and life altering books.
I follow Ann Voskamp on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. I read her blog almost daily. I have tweeted and retweeted and also got a favorite or retweet from Ann on occasion.
I really love to share her stuff.
I also one day envision me and Debbie getting invited to her Farm to discuss some God stuff with her!
Her words can leave me speechless in a good way. I always think one is my favorite and then she keeps delivering more and more profound words that hit my soul deep. I praise God for her and her amazing gift of words.
The book 1000 Gifts inspired me several years ago to buy myself, my husband and our twins a journal and have us all start counting Gifts.
We still do it today.
Our Gifts are our list of things we are Thankful for. It has altered our family in a wonderful way.
I was trying to decide on a #FeatureFriday this week and Ann Voskamp kept coming to mind, so
I know God wanted me to share her with you all.
If you have not heard of her or her books I encourage you to look her up on all social media and be sure to sign up for your own A Holy Experience here:
And Ann Voskamp, if you happen to see this-
Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!
I am free to come for a visit anytime and if you are back in Houston, TX sometime; my farm table is open to you too!
