Don’t you love making new online friends? One way is through book clubs. Recently on Incourage I found out about a book club using Ann Voskamp’s incredible book, One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are. (This is an affiliate link. I’d appreciate you buying it through my link!)
Ann is the kind of writer that makes you squint at your own writing and think, “Should I just give up?” Her writing is raw, transparent, deep, is filled with beautiful description, and goes right through you with its sharp truth and intolerance for religious, pat answers – asking and answering the question, “Is God good?” Even in the hard times?
Ann writes, “Do not disdain the small. The whole of life – even the hard – is made up of the minute parts, and if I miss the infinitesimals, I miss the whole … There is a way to live the big of giving thanks in all things. It is this: to give thanks in this one small thing. The moments add up.” ~ One Thousand Gifts
The book club’s first video is this Sunday, February 6 at Incourage. There is still time for you to join! Just watch the video below and hop on over here to Incourage, where you’ll find out all about it! Then do invite your family and friends to the book club, too.
