This was just the study guide without the DVD. I recently purchased an e-reader & was trying to figure out how to download an e-book from the library collection. I thought I was getting the book, "One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are".

This is a book I'll definitely read year after year. I catch myself not always immediately penning down my moments, but constantly thanking God for them.

A rich study. The dvd and study guide do not follow the original book exactly, but present it in a condensed form. The photography is beautiful and Ann's teaching is full of depth and grace. I taught this to a tribe of about 20 women and it was rich and beautiful. I will likely teach it again in the fall, and I have no doubt I will be blessed even more the next time through the study as there is plenty of manna in this book. So grateful for Ann Voskamp.
Although a number of the questions are somewhat repetitious, I believe this guide well encourages the reader to personally interact with the material, promoting the practical application of giving thanks in everyday living, and thereby guiding the reader to gain the maximum benefit from watching the DVD’s and reading this most excellent book.
