On the Shelf for Thanksgiving
One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are
by Ann Voskamp
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 when your days are gritty, long -- and sometimes even dark? How is God even here?'
In One Thousand Gifts, Voskamp invites you to embrace everyday blessings and embark on the transformative spiritual discipline of chronicling God's gifts. It's only in this expressing of gratitude for the life we already have, we discover the life we've always wanted.
An Altar in the World: A Geography of Faith
Taylor shares how she learned to find God beyond the church walls by embracing the sacred as a natural part of everyday life. She shows us how to connect with God by learning to live with purpose, pay attention, slow down, and revere the world we live in.
