Ann Voskamp has a way with words that draws the reader’s heart closer to God. She never writes for her own promotion. She doesn’t ever come across as haughty or know-it-all. She knows what it is to strain for more of God. More of His joy. More of His peace. These sixty devotionals are filled with that longing for more of God.

About the Author:

My Review:

Ann Voskamp has been a favorite of mine. She is very simple but she also can cut right through you to get to the heart of the matter. She shows us in the devotional that is meant to be the companion to her best selling book, One Thousand Gifts that God is in all things and His grace extends over into all areas of your life. Whatever it is, big or small, if you let Him, He is there. In One Thousand Gifts Devotional: Reflections on Finding Everyday Grace, there are 60 devotions and plenty of places throughout the book to journal but the author invites you to take the everyday things and see Gods grace in them.

Once you start looking it really is too hard to stop looking because His grace is something that shows itself almost immediately. My favorite devotional out of the entire book if I could only pick one would have to be Dark Grace. The words are so touching that they seem like light melting through you. She writes about her experiences and those of others in very touching ways. I love reading her work because her words speak to me heart in the most immeasurable ways!

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the Z Blog Squad and Zondervan. (Posted on 11/5/14)

How can we find real joy when we are struggling with debt, daily obligations and stress? Ann Voskamp has compiled 60 reflections of grace that will help you to keep your life focused on Christ.

A beautiful hard-cover book with lined pages for your reflections and an attached ribbon page marker are just a few of the things that make the physical part of this book appealing. All of the devotions begin with scripture from several versions of the Bible, such as KJV, ESV, NEB, MSG and NASB just to name a few, making it easy to understand and all the devotions end with a short prayer. MS Voskamp often asks a question in the course of the devotion that will cause some deep soul-searching such as “What makes God angry?” “What is the root of sin?” She then takes it a step further and helps you explore the answers to the questions posed. She also shows again and again by the scriptures when we fail, God doesn’t turn away from us.

When I first started reading this devotional for review, I randomly chose them by title, but soon realized I would be going back and daily read these devotions as they deal with things that sabotage my lack of daily happiness, such as thanklessness, lack of grace, anger and pain, etc.

These are beautifully written and thought-provoking devotionals. I would highly recommend them, especially if you are looking for a way to have a closer walk with God.
Disclosure: I was given a copy of this book by the publisher, Zondervan, for an honest review. I was not required to write a favorable review nor was I compensated for my review. The opinions in this review are my own.
