She lives in southwestern Ontario, Canada, with her husband and their seven children.
Now about the book: As Ann writes in the inside cover, “How do we find joy in the midst of deadlines, debt, drama, and daily duties? What does a life of gratitude look like when your days are gritty, long and sometimes dark? What is God providing here and now?” This book is a beautifully practical guide to living a life of joy. Through her experiences, she will invite you, the reader, to discover to God’s everyday blessings in your life.
You may purchase a copy of the book on your own, or if you would like Rev. Crimmins to order a copy for you, please call the church office 734-1614.
