BOOK DISCUSSION NEW BOOK!
One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are by Ann Voskamp is on tap for the next Book Discussion meeting. This book has been on the New York Times bestseller list for over 60 weeks. In addition to writing books, Ann writes for Christianity Today, Huffington Post, The High Calling, and World Magazine. 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.
The book will be discussed sometime in February at a time and date yet to be determined.
