A Week of Christmas – Day 1: One Thousand Gifts
To kick off this season of giving and thanksgiving, Christian Military Wives and Wives in Bloom are giving away one prize every day for the first full week of December! Today, for our first prize, we are giving away two copies of “One Thousand Gifts,” by Ann Voskamp, one for you to keep and one for you to share.
Book Description: “Just like you, Ann Voskamp hungers to live her one life well. Forget the bucket lists that have us escaping our everyday lives for exotic experiences. ‘How,’ Ann wondered, ‘do we find joy in the midst of deadlines, debt, drama, and daily duties? What does the Christ-life really look like when your days are gritty, long–and sometimes even dark? How is God even here?’ In One Thousand Gifts, Ann invites you to embrace everyday blessings and embark on the transformative spiritual discipline of chronicling God’s gifts. It’s only in this expressing of gratitude for the life we already have, we discover the life we’ve always wanted…a life we can take, give thanks for, and break for others. We come to feel and know the impossible right down in our bones: we are wildly loved–by God. Let Ann’s beautiful, heart-aching stories of the everyday give you a way of seeing that opens your eyes to ordinary amazing grace, a way of being present to God that makes you deeply happy, and a way of living that is finally fully alive. Come live the best dare of all!”
If you’d like to win, all you have to do is leave a comment answering the question: “What are you most grateful for right now?”
Please, just one entry per person. No entries after 11 p.m. eastern time. Winners for all giveaways will be drawn at random.
Tomorrow we will announce the winner, as well as the next giveaway!
