An Invitation

My dear friends and family,

With all my heart... I invite you to go on a journey with me. I have never tried this before, but I believe now is the time.

A little over a week ago, I purchased a new book on my Nook book. It is called '1000 Gifts' and it is authored by a woman named Ann Voskamp. I started this book and immediately knew that it wasn't going to be just another book. It is an experience!

Last night our pastor spoke out of the book of Luke chapter 16. He spoke with true honesty about managing our lives. We often struggle with our finances, our time, our possessions, and most importantly... how we manage living out the gospel in our daily lives.

I believe that this book, ' 1000 gifts ' IS a gift! I've just started it and already it is changing my relationship with Christ and how I live my days.

This morning I learned that an on-line book club sponsored by {In}Courage is starting a study on this book beginning the end of this month! I was SO excited!! Like I said, I've never joined in on an on-line book club, so I don't even know what that looks like... BUT... I'm excited to find out.

I whole heartedly encourage you to join me. I can almost guarantee you that it will change you... It will change how you manage your life and how you live out the gospel every day. It will give you renewed perspective. It will re-define the word 'JOY'.

It will gift you.

** For more information on "how"... click on the {In}Courage" link on my left side bar. Oh, and the ladies who are leading the study have made arrangements for anyone who cannot afford the book right now. The web-site has more information on that as well. :0)

I posted about this book changing my life here.

And a couple more times since. I have been keeping my gratitude journal and posting every Monday.

So glad to see you found it as well and that you are being transformed because of it.
