dare to LIVE LIFE {fully} right where you are

During these past two years I have enjoyed the writing over at a holy experience. I even participated in her 1000 Gifts project....where bloggers, writers, readers, anyone really, kept a running list of all that God has blessed us with. The simple, everyday, beautiful things. Gratitude...consciously acknowledged, written down to give thanks to God. I will honestly say that I often get in the way of seeing the gifts in my life. But I have learned that {gratitude} is an important practice in becoming a disciple of Jesus- and living fully, right where you are. It will give you new eyes and change your heart.

So the writer of this beautiful blog now has a book: One Thousand Gifts: a dare to live life fully right where you are. If you are interested in intentionally {giving thanks} and starting your own list, take a look at it! If you are interested in reading this book in community, as part of a book club, check out the Bloom Book Club online, they will begin posting videos and online conversations on Feb. 6th. The author, Ann Voskamp, will be involved in the online discussions & video. You can read an excerpt of the book here.

I have participated in the Bloom Book Club in the past. It is great because you can fit it in whenever you find some down time to read and watch the videos online (in my world it was during my toddler's nap time or bedtime) in the comfort of your own home.

So please leave a comment if you are planning to read this book! I would love to know what you think.
