About the Author
Ann Voskamp's the wife of one fine, down-to-earth farmer; a book-reading mama to a posse of seven; and the author of the New York Times bestsellers The Greatest Gift and Unwrapping the Greatest Gift, and the sixty-week New York Times bestseller One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are, which has sold more than one million copies and has been translated into more than eighteen languages.
Named by Christianity Today as one of fifty women most shaping culture and the church today, Ann knows unspoken brokenness and big country skies and an intimacy with God that touches wounded places. Millions do life with her at her daily photographic online journal, one of the Top 10 most widely read Christian websites: www.aholyexperience.com.

Her view, her way of telling what she sees, and her bedrock foundation in Scripture make this a book worth having, even if you don't like her writing style.
I know there are folks who have problems with it. For example, her use of the Scriptural analogy of bride and groom to explain the relationship between Christ and His church, for example, apparently gives some people the heebie-jeebies. (I would encourage them to remember just exactly WHERE she found that picture, to begin with.) Apparently, her finding God's fingerprints in her life on every single surface also undoes some people. I don't know what to say to them, except perhaps they might benefit from reading Brother Laurence's "Practicing the Presence." Perhaps the writing style in that book is more suited to their tastes, and the message is about the same: you find what you look for. Worship isn't singing, it's praising and serving and listening to God--things better done in the minutes of mundane life than in the hour or so most folks spend in church each week.
I am a fast paced person and although I like the speed I live at, it also is my downfall. I usually get bored with those who try to slow it down and smell the roses really quickly. If you are like me I want you to know this is slow like a perfect day at the beach - you won't want to go one second faster but just soak it in and do it again.
I believe this study will enrich me and take me to a deeper relationship with God, the God who breathed the stars into existence and the same God who loves you and me and will bring healing and abundant life to us daily. That's worth 5 stars isn't it?
The book is decently written though very poetic in it's presentation and imagery. Some people may not be able to relate to it as deeply because of that. Her wording is unique. and it equals the books purpose. If you do enjoy it I would advice to follow her on social medial as she is always posting uplifting tidbits, or handing around printable you can use in your home, etc.

Takes awhile to get in to her style of very descriptive writing, but once you understand her style of writing she has fabulous things to say about faith and thanksgiving.Published 2 months ago by Arieanna R.
We didn't think it would include so much about the DVD series, which we chose not to order. Questions were thought-provoking.Published 2 months ago by Conrad
This guide has lots of thought-provoking questions. I wish it correlated with the book more so we could be better prepared ahead of time, rather than try to answer the questions... Read morePublished 2 months ago by Naturegirl
