<For Ann Voskamp, the notion of being able to give thanks was lost between her gnawing anger and deep resentment toward God for his unfair dealings in her life and the lives of others. Having suffered from agoraphobia and anxiety for much of her life, she despaired of finding a joy of her own.Then, a friend dared her to write a list of a thousand blessings. Over the months that followed, she made some profound discoveries: - How it's possible to give thanks even for the things that might crush you> - How thanksgiving alwaysprecedesthe miracle> - How to slow down and life fully in the moment> - How things that feel like trouble might actually be gifts of grace> - How to break the bondage of fear by embracing everyday blessings> - Howtrustis the bridge over tumultuous waters that leads to joy> - How to turn your blessing intobeinga blessing to others>> In this study, Ann encourages us to take on the life-changing discipline of journaling God's gifts—to discover a way of seeing that opens our eyes to ordinary amazing grace, a way of living that is fully alive, and a way of becoming present to God that brings deep and lasting joy.It's only in this expression of gratitude for the life we already have, that we discover the life we've always wanteda life we can take, give thanks for, and use to serve others. In it, we come to feel and know the impossible right down to our core: We are wildly loved by God.Sessions include: - Attitude of Gratitude> - Grace in the Moment> - All Is Grace> - Trust: The Bridge to Joy> - Empty to Fill> Designed for use with theOne Thousand Gifts Video Study(9780310684398), sold separately.
