it was amazing
Read in August, 2012

I'm pretty sure I saw the trailer first.

Then I read that this woman who says no to "inspirational" non-fiction said yes to One Thousand Gifts.

And then I found my way to A Holy Experience.

And lastly I ended up at She Speaks, where I heard her speak, and I took notes and I laughed and I cried and at the end, I finally bought the book.

I'm oh-so-glad that I did.

There is little I feel I can write that hasn't already been written so many times it sounds cliche and worn-out. But they are all true. One Thousand Gifts is achingly real. One Thousand Gifts will change your life (if you let it). One Thousand Gifts is a classic that I will crumple and dog-ear and get water stains on.

Why I Recommend This Book

One Thousand Gifts will dare you to count. On fingers, in mental melodies, down winding roads, in blog posts, and on notepaper. Count His goodness, count His grace, count His gifts. And open your eyes to see His love.

If I could, I'd give a copy away every day.
