One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp

There is something truly lovely about reading a book where the author has done their own photography. This is the case in the beautiful book One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp. Mrs. Voskamp uses her photographs to illuminate the story she is attempting to tell – that gratitude is the beginning of self discovery.

I received this book as a graduation gift from a lovely friend. Voskamp uses her faith and the finding of small joys to illuminate what is perhaps a universal need: to slow down. Voskamp’s journey starts as a challenge to journal 1000 gratitudes, but she keeps write on going and crafts what she has learned into this book.

I would suggest this book to anyone who needs to stop and smell the roses and is not off put by the open christianity around which this work is based. Truly a quick read at just over 100 pages.
