If Ann Voskamp's book One Thousand Gifts changed the way you view gratitude, then prepare to be challenged anew by another farmer's wife, Natasha Metzler, in Counting Grains of Sand.

Counting Grains of Sand is riveting, raw, and real. It is a testimony to a God Who redeems pain and delights in giving us the desires of our hearts. It is a story of learning to delight in Him, even when His will doesn't look like we thought, even when we don't get the answer we prayed for.

At first I thought this book wouldn't mean much to me because I haven't been through what the author had been through at all.

I couldn’t have been more wrong. FANTASTIC for absolutely anyone.

Awesomely heart felt faith building. Exactly what I needed to read.

Can't say enough. Can't say a word really. I am speechless. I will read again and again. And give to those needing a word from God

Natasha’s voice is always inexplicably Spirit-led. When I read her first book, I had no idea I was in for a convicting, challenging, yet genuinely touching read. When I dove into Counting Grains of Sand, I knew exactly what to expect and Natasha does not disappoint. If you’re looking for a fresh look at loss, redemption, and God’s provision, settle in with this book and prepare to be inspired.
