What a joy it has been to read the book Selections from One Thousand Gifts: Finding Joy in What Really Matters by Ann Voskamp. This title I came to learn was more of a gift type book. Why so? Well, it takes bits and pieces from the book One Thousand Gifts which I’ve yet to read, though I am sure I’ll pick up a copy to read this Summer when time is more permitting.
In this book, you’ll fine gorgeous photography each leading into a message from the author to mediate on and apply to our lives. The messages are usually pretty practical and leave you wanting to know what other thoughts the author has to share. I personally found each of the thoughts and messages uplifting and challenge to not get lost in life but pay attention to all those fine details that God has given us.
Like I mentioned before, this if a coffee table type of book. A small dose of encouragement that’s sweet to the soul and beauty for your eyes to look upon. If you are wanting a bit more I would suggest picking up the book this is based upon as well as the devotional to give you a more personal application. I’ve heard the book has had a huge impact on many women challenging them to see all the blessings we are given on daily basis. Oh, how easy it is to gets lost in the hustle and bustle of life and not see the beauty in it! God is in the details and let’s not forget it.
If you are interested in this title, Selections from One Thousand Gifts: Finding Joy in What Really Matters can be found on Amazon.com for about $12.00 (as of this posting). This title would make a lovely gift or addition to your own living room coffee table.
