Just like you, Ann Voskamp hungers to live her one life well.
Forget the bucket lists that have us escaping our everyday
lives for exotic experiences. 'How,' Ann wondered,
'do we find joy in the midst of deadlines, debt, drama, and daily duties?
What does the Christ-life really look like whe
n your days are gritty,

long—and sometimes even dark? How is God even here?

 
Come and join us for a six-week study of Ann Voskamp’s celebrated book,
One Thousand Gifts.
Ann is a Christian poet and writer and invites us to
see all of God’s good and healing gifts, even in the midst of
 terrible tragedy.

This book deals with themes like grief, discovery, hope, and family dynamics.
