Give thanks…embrace joy!

This morning, I finished reading One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are by Ann Voskamp

I have not found a better book to answer the demanding questions, we all ask ourselves, as we witness pain and suffering all around and in our own lives.


Ann fervently challenges us to live a life of gratitude. To embrace all great and marvelous gifts God lovingly offers in small breathtaking moments…everyday. 


This year, I gladly accept her challenge to write down one thousand gifts.

To learn more or follow along with her and hundreds more, please visit: and


3 gifts each day = 1000 gifts in one year




1. Ann Voskamp's book, One Thousand Gifts

2. Toys strewn throughout the house.

3. Kari Jobe's inspirational music.

4. Children's footsteps. 

5. A 3-day extra day at home with the E-TEAM

6. The freedom to read my Bible. 

7. The furry terrier who keeps my feet warm.
