This Life is for YOU!

There is a blog...
I have been following for a while now..
I absolutely love it!

On those days where I wonder if I can keep going...
her words push me
When I think I have loaded to much on my plate...
her words remind me that it is all a blessing

At Holy Experience Ann Voskamp inspires me like no other...
and I have never met her...never seen her...never heard her voice
until today.

Today I was blog hopping around and found this video promotion of a book that Ann wrote called One Thousand Gifts.
I plan on buying this book...

Here is just a couple reviews:
"This book is the most gorgeous thing I've ever read. Ever. Ann Voskamp weaves the sacred and ordinary into a tapestry of grace. And each beautiful word is a thread that binds our hearts closer to God's so He can fill our hollow places with joy. This book is the real gift--one that will stay with you and keep blessing your life long after you've read the last page." --Holley Gerth, editorial director, DaySpring

"Ann Voskamp is truly one of the most gifted writers I have ever read. If you want a book that will challenge you and mess with you in the most beautiful of ways, this is it. And you won't just read it and put it away. You will return to this treasure for years to come." ----Lysa TerKeurst, president of Proverbs 31 Ministries and bestselling author of Becoming More Than a Good Bible Study Girl







"A book destined to become a classic; the sort of book you dog-ear and re-read for the sheer joy of cherishing the words and experiencing the depth of the heart that wrote it." ----Mary DeMuth, author of Thin Places: A Memoir


Here is the description of the book:
Drawing heartbreaking beauty out of the simplest of details, Ann Voskamp invites you into her grace--bathed life of farming, parenting, and writing--and deeper still into your own life. Here you will discover a way of seeing that opens your eyes to ordinary amazing grace, a way of living that is fully alive, and a way of becoming present to God that brings you deep and lasting joy.



She also hosts a link up on Mondays called Mulitude Mondays where she continues to count God's blessings in her life...big or small.

She is a blessing to this bloggy world..and surely a blessing to me!

Please watch the video.....Ann speaks so eloquently....her photography is amazing....and her descriptive words hit you right at the heart-strings...
I encourage you to read the book...let me know what you think as I plan on buying it soon.


Enjoy!
