faintingviolet’s #CBR4 review #28: one thousand gifts by Ann Voskamp
The same can be said for her prose. I received this book as a graduation gift from a lovely friend. Voskamp uses her faith and the finding of small joys to illuminate what is perhaps a universal need: to slow down and see the small graces in our lives. Voskamp’s journey starts as a challenge to journal 1000 gratitudes, but she keeps right on going and crafts what she has learned into this book.
Voskamp shares with the readers a personal journey and insights her family has without sacrificing their privacy. I would suggest this book to anyone who needs to stop and smell the roses and is not off put by the open christianity around which this work is based. Truly a quick read at just over 100 pages.
