I read Ann Voskamp's One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Life Fully Right Where You Are, about a year and a half ago. This best seller introduces readers to a word, Eucharisteo and a philosophy of living in light of the grace of God, as it says, right where you are. This idea of giving thanks always and living in the awareness of the brevity and fragility of life with joy is the theme of One Thousand Gifts. It inspired me to start counting along with a whole community of others who were counting ...more
“Is thankfulness really but the deep, contented breath of peacefulness?”

I’m always looking for a quality devotional, especially as each year comes to a close. I love knowing I can start over with new wisdom and insight. Having come across Ann Voskamp’s new devotional based off her bestselling book, I can say I’m excited to have this in my library, but share it with others as well!

With each daily devotion starting with a scripture and ending with a prayer and space to write thoughts and prayers (
I loved One Thousand Gifts, and thought this little devotional a good follow up. Creating a life habit of thankfulness requires diligence, and the short devotions in this book were good refreshers on the subject. Ann Voskamp manages to be contemplative and practical and very, very "real ". I do love her for that!
Ann Voscamp's honesty and transparency make this one of the most encouraging and life changing devotionals I have ever used. I am still working on my list of 1000 but getting close. I plan on making this a life practice. I will be rereading this devotional.

Follow in her footsteps, and find 'joy in the midst of deadlines, debt, drama and daily duties.'

How can we find real joy when we are struggling with debt, daily obligations and stress? Ann Voskamp has compiled 60 reflections of grace that will help you to keep your life focused on Christ.

A beautiful hard-cover book with lined pages for your reflections and an attached ribbon page marker are just a few of the things that make the physical part of this book appealing. All of the devotions begin with scripture from several versions of the Bible, such as KJV, ESV, NEB, MSG and NASB just to na

"It all began quite spontaneously, unintentionally. One of those things God grows up in the most unexpected places.

A friend dared me to start counting one thousand things I loved. I took the dare, accepted the challenge, kept track of one thousand things, one thousand gifts - a thousand graces - on a quiet, unassuming blog. Before I knew it, thankfulness to God began to fully change me.

What I actually found - startling! - was more daily wonder and surprising beauty than I ever expected. And in

You already have everything you need. This is Ann Voskamp’s message in One Thousand Gifts, her journal of her own journey to joy in the midst of the seriously mundane. As a farmer’s wife and homeschooling mother of six tumbling, bumbling wee ones, she—like all of us—can struggle with feeling lost in a sea of dishes, laundry, sibling squabbles and dust. A nagging sense that there might be more out there somewhere beyond the life we lead, whatever ours may be, robs us of joy in the very midst of t ...more
I was tremendously moved by the book when I read it 12 months ago. I wanted something more and this is it.

60 two-three page "Grace" stories that capture the essence of the book but provide a basis for reflection and prayer. In addition, the journal for recording 1,000 gifts was super handy and each day I so enjoyed reflecting on God's goodness.

Ann has such a wonderful heart for the Lord, sharing her journey in such a manner that I always felt I was walking alongside her, helping do the laundry,
ONE THOUSAND GIFTS DEVOTIONAL starts with a Bible verse for you to read, goes into a two or three page story / devotional, and ends with a prayer and a few lines for you to write your thoughts.

I didn’t read the book that preceded this one, but I found the style of writing very hard to follow and get into. I had to read the same passages multiple times to get anything out of them. The idea of it is good – great even – but if you live in a busy home and don’t have quiet place to go to be alone an
Ann Voskamp's writing feeds my soul

1,000 Gifts is the book that has changed me and affected me more deeply than any book other than the Bible, so when I saw this devotional I jumped at the chance to read it. Ann Voskamp's writing feeds my soul, but reading a large chunk of it at a time can feel almost heavy to me, because she gives so very much to ponder, so a few pages a day in a devotional is the perfect size for me! I highly recommend this to any and everyone!
I love Ann's voice. She writes with a conversational structure and tone that makes me feel like she's standing in my kitchen while dropping off or picking up kids. She's honest, transparent and inspired! I just love the way she makes me take a fresh look at all of the blessings in my day and reminds me to give thanks to God continually for His ever-present grace. She's a radiant reflection on God's love in the world, and I have to give thanks for her Light. Eucharisteo!
Ann does a wonderful job at putting Grace into perspective. I was challenged to have gratitude during all circumstances. When we have gratitude then we will be happy, we can't be happy with out gratitude. God's blessing are all around us we have to make a conscious effort to look for them and say Thank you! After reading this book you will never be the same. This Devotional was a shadow of her book and touched on the most meaningful parts so we could apply it to our lives.
Ann Voskamp can be wordy and say in 20 sentences what could be said in 2. But in spite of this when the dedicated reader applies themself her insights are inspiring, thought provoking and starts a deep desire to have a closer walk with God. I read one devotion a day and took my time with this book. I loved each minute I spent with it. Highly reccomend.
Amanda Obiero
I am currently working on this devotional and I absolutely fell in love with it from the very first one. Ann Voskamp is truly one of my favorite authors. Her story is incredible and her writing challenges the reader to go deeper and the result of that is something I can't find words for. This book sits on my nightstand and it will not be moved.
Kimberly Bidwell
I gleaned so many beautiful truths from this devotional. I was reading it during one of the darkest times in my life and I feel that this book helped me focus on God and what is true and beautiful. Changed my perspective of everything! This is definitely a book that I will be going back to over and over.

1000 Gifts

Such a reminder to look at each moment as the gift it is as well as to follow with thankfulness for what you see each moment. The more we see then the more we thank and then the more Jesus is glorified! "Jesus said, Blessed are the eyes that see what you see." Luke 10:23
Janet Hamm
The book is great; the challenge to list 1000 Gifts is literally life-changing! Voskamp's writing style seems to elicit a love-it or hate-it reaction, and I've decided I don't like it. It doesn't change the great message, but it does make it hard to understand sometimes.
Trish Boese
5* This book by Ann Voskamp is so inspiring. Her words have spoken truth into my life for years. This book contains 60 devotions with space to journal. There is also space in the back of the book for my own numbered list of one thousand gifts.
Voskamp's musings in this devotional are challenging, thought-provoking, poetic, insightful. Highly recommend her writing to anyone interested in becoming a more thankful person who sees God's hand and blessings in all of life.
Tiffany Huffman
This book changed my perspective on being thankful. It is so crucial to a Christian's walk to be thankful for what God has done, is doing, and is about to do in your life. I'd say I'm thankful for this book. ;)
Voskamp provides short reflections of daily grace - a good coupling if you are starting your own Joy Dare. Voskamp's unique writing style is very intriguing in devotional format, and always leaves you wanting more.
Linda Waeckerle
This book has revolutionized my perspective on praise. Instead of focusing on the negative, my bent, I now see each mess in my life as an opportunity to give thanks in all things.
I loved the original book and found this devotional to be a wonderful way for me to bite off little nuggets and savor them. Each day is a facet of grace. A great devotional.
A wonderful accompaniment to her book One Thousand Gifts--this journal has numbered pages for you to count your own, and 60 new meditations/reflections to inspire you.
My husband and I read this together. We enjoyed it but sometimes the poetry was weird. I liked it enough to start my own 1000 gifts notebook!
Irene O'Neill
This book has you paying attention to our every-day blessings (gifts and graces), so important to living a life contented and grateful.
Kim Stokely
I adore this devotional!! I actually have gone through it 2 1/2 times since last January, and will probably use is again this year!
Kathy Simpson
Wow! It took me four months to finish this book - so very much to truly learn from. Thank you Ann for writing this.
