I just read the last page and would like to share for anyone else that has been on the fence, READ IT. It is the most captivating, powerful, and transformational book I have ever read. Her words and writing style are wondrously beautiful. I really have no words that could even bring justice to its beauty. This book reached my core and put language to my heart’s cry that I actually found myself crying throughout the book and I could not help myself! It draws you in to a sacredness that compels you to see your world differently.
This book is a game-changer.

Having said all of that, her book is very good and I’m learning a lot from her.
Ann suffered many adverse experiences in life including witnessing her little sister being knocked down and killed by a truck. She has struggled emotionally, but she eventually learned the importance of giving thanks to God for the many good things that we have in our lives.
This book really is about so much more than this, it’s also about finding God in the everyday moments of our daily lives. I have found this a very helpful way to look at things. I recommend visiting Ann Voskamp's website also as she has many other inspiring products. I write a more detailed review on my blog: https://victoriawhyte.wordpress.com/2015/02/17/one-thousand-gifts/
Her ideas are good but oh my gosh, what a confusing writing style. It's taking me ages to get through this book ..... and I'm only still reading it due to the basic concept in the book which I am passionate about.
Her writing style is certainly not for me!!!
I would never recommend this book!!!
The writing doesn't read easily but is poetic, at times feeling a bit contrived, which also means that it doesn't have a clear progression, but feels more like vignettes of everyday life collected in a book. It feels as if there is distance between the words and the realness of the author's life, which often is the case when authors focus more on the poetry than lived life.
It is however a pleasure to read the author's search for eucharisteo (thanks-givings) and seeing her find it, in what in buddhist tradition you find by being present here-now in whatever you do.
I am sure many will enjoy her style but not for me.
