Room and 1000 gifts

I've been hearing a lot about this book lately. When I'm done reading "Room" I will get this one for my Kobo and take on the challenge to LIVE FULLY.

Here's what Kobo is saying;

Just like you Ann Voskamp hungers to live her one life well. Forget the bucket lists that have us escaping our everyday lives for exotic experiences. 'How ' Ann wondered 'do we find joy in the midst of deadlines debt drama and daily duties? What does the Christ-life really look like when your days are gritty long---and sometimes even dark? How is God even here?' In One Thousand Gifts Ann invites you to embrace everyday blessings and embark on the transformative spiritual discipline of chronicling God's gifts. It's only in this expressing of gratitude for the life we already have we discover the life we've always wanted ... a life we can take give thanks for and break for others. We come to feel and know the impossible right down in our bones: we are wildly loved --- by God. Let Ann's beautiful heart-aching stories of the everyday give you a way of seeing that opens your eyes to ordinary amazing grace a way of being present to God that makes you deeply happy and a way of living that is finally fully alive. Come live the best dare of all!
