WINNER: Jenn from Treasuring Life’s Blessings

It’s no secret that Ann Voskamp is one of my favorite authors.  Every Monday I try to share my gift list that keeps on and on growing…I’ve counted more than 3,600 gifts here on my blog!! Little love letters from my Savior…he keeps giving and giving and loving and loving. I’ve read her book, One Thousand Gifts, twice now. And I’m in the middle of her devotional. So, when I was approached about having a give away of this book, One Thousand Gifts, I jumped at the chance!! To share this book with one of YOU?? Yes, please! :)

Has my life radically changed since reading this book? No.
Have all my problems disappeared? No.

So what is so great about this book? Learning to be thankful in the hard moments is what is changing me…changing my perspective…making me a more truly grateful person. My life is not radically different, but my perspective is. 

There is always something to be thankful for…
In the midst of heartache, He is faithful.
In the midst of a lonely day, He is friend.
In the midst of the valley of the shadow of death, He is comfort.
In the midst of chaos, He is peace.

I am so excited to be able to gift one of these precious books with you, one of my dear readers!! Just in time for Mother’s Day!!

    I have learned to be thankful for sickness. Sickness is a reminder to be grateful for these amazing bodies God has given to us. I am amazed at all times of the strength He gives us to overcome whatever we may be facing.

    My husband and I have learned to be thankful for his cancer. He didn’t know the Lord before, but one evening, when he was in extreme pain, the Lord gave him the insight that Jesus had suffered even more pain for him. All things work together for good for those who love God…even pain.

    When my son died, I learned to be thankful for each & every day and all those small moments, a hug, a fussy baby, sleepless nights, etc.

    I’ve learned to be thankful for each and every trial, no matter how painful, for He uses all things for good.

    Ooooh- I have been wanting to read this book for a while now. :) The one hard thing I have learned to be thankful for is my fibro. It has taught me a lot about having a surrendering spirit towards God. It requires of me a surrendering spirit as I have no control over it. I am completely dependent upon God to lead and help me care for our family.
    Thanks for the chance to win, Candace!
