#1000Gifts: New Small Group DVD study by Ann Voskamp

Margaret —  December 1, 2012 — 738 Comments

This week, I am giving away THREE copies of Ann Voskamp's New York Time's Best Seller's One Thousand Gifts small group DVD study and study guide. The study releases in stores on December 4th, 2012.

Each session invites participants to explore the transformative spiritual discipline of chronicling gifts and provides a Scripture, prayer, and between-session activities inviting you to go deeper into the concept of grace explored in her book and on her blog.

Ann encourages participants take on the life-changing discipline of journaling God’s gifts—to really look at life and find the good in it. Only then can we come to feel and know the impossible right down in our bones: we are wildly loved—by God.

The study was filmed at her home in Ontario. Sessions include:

1. Attitude of Gratitude
2. Grace in the Moment
3. All is Grace
4. Trust: The Bridge to Joy
5. Empty to Fill

To win a copy, comment on this ORIGINAL blog post at www.margaretfeinberg.com. Winners will be selected and notified on Friday.

Congratulations to this week's winners: Terri, Michael, and Samantha Allen! Thank you all for participating!

    Put my name in for the chance to win the “One Thousand Gifts” DVD study and study guide! I have read through the book twice now. I love it!! It has changed the way I look at the world around me on a daily basis. I would love to go through the study guide as well!

    Brenda Davenport

  2. I love this book and I would love to win so my small group could do the study together.

  3. Maybe this could be our next life group study for after Christmas 🙂
    I have much to be thankful for, including finding your website, reading the Organic God right now and thoroughly being challenged by God through it….
    Thanks for the honesty in your writing, looking forward to ‘hearing’ more of what God wants to say to me …..

  4. Would love, love, love to win this give away for the small group I belong too.

    We’re only 5 in number and broken but God is healing us through His Word and reminds of us His promises every Thursday night.

    Faith, hope and love,

  5. I asked for Ann’s book this year for Christmas. It’s just about the only material thing I genuinely want! Thanks for giving away the studyfor someone to be extra blessed!

  6. I have been mentored by Ann and so many other mature women in Christ throught the written word. Through the airwaves and the screen. I thank God for her and for you. I have been changed through Christ who dwells w/in my mentors and me.

  7. I would love to walk our marrieds group through this with my husband. It could be life-changing for many of us.

  8. God has used this book in my life in untold ways in the past year and 1/2. It has been life changing. I would love to do a bible study with some other women who could use the same journey toward wholeness and healing through this redemptive journey.

  9. It would be great to have the opportunity to use this in our Bible study group. I have the book and it is terrific. Excited to see it set up for groups.

  10. I have not read this or worked through it at all, but I would love to do so! This is something I could take when teaching in our community soup kitchen to do a series on how gifted we truly are and how to look at the good in life! This could be really cool, because of the perspective it builds on life, gifts, and God. One Thousand Gifts, and I have a mind flooded with a million ways to use this! 🙂

  11. Please put in an entry for me 🙂 This would be a great study for our small group! Thank you 🙂

  12. This is great! Just fell upon Ann’s twitter & blog recently. Would love to use this study in a LifeGroup at our church 🙂

  13. This book changed my husband’s and my.life! The prayer of thanksgiving (eucharisteo) gave him the opportunity to see miracles happen. Miracles that truly spoke to him personally. The miracle was really intended for me because he is Jewish and I have been praying for his faith for twenty years!! It is awesome to pray with your husband and thank God!

  14. I loved the book and follow Ann’s blog. I’d love to check out the study!

  15. This fits perfectly with what The Lord has been speaking to me about, especially that trusting Him is the only pathway to joy.

  16. I’d love a copy of this. I haven’t read the book yet, but would love to do so. I’ve been wanting to get a little group of friends together and this would be the perfect opportunity.

  17. Oh that would be wonderful. My church group down here has not done that book or study. My church group in Haliburton studied the book – 13 weeks of wonderful lessons and miracles happened.

  18. Wonderful, wonderful, and yet again wonderful!
    This book has brought much joy and peace into my stressed-out, crazy moments. It beautifully teaches … slowly, and gently… what it really looks like be grateful and thankful for each moment.
    Ann’s genuine sharing is more than just encouragement to do the same.. it’s taken me to a new place in my faith journey.

  19. This book is phenomenal. so down-to-earth yet so filled with heaven’s wisdom. I would LOVE to do the study!

  20. I have not read this but I would love to…sounds like a very interesting book and could be helpful to me.

  21. When I read this book It touched my heart so much! This will be a great study to have. There so much we truly forget when life gets the best of us, we forget OUR BLESSINGS!
    This is a keeper, one that will be a reminder of how blessed we are…for we have the LOVE OF JESUS!!
    Blessings Tina

  22. What a blessing it would be to have the opportunity to win a copy of this DVD study. I just ordered the book today and the I read this blog. I can’t believe His timing. This fits right in with what The Lord in speaking to me right now, once again I am overwhelmed by His love and grace. All part of #livewonderstruck.

  23. I want to win a copy! 🙂 That would be amazing. Then it would be like 1001 gifts.

  24. I would love to win this study. My life has been one struggle after another and at times I have hated my life. After reading One thousand gifts I began to see all the beauty surrounding me. I have new eyes open wide to focus on the positive things I never seemed to notice while focusing on the challenges of daily life. I see the gift in each breath I am blessed to be able to breathe. Each day is full of hope because I live to see the beauty in unnoticed things. One thousand gifts has changed my perspective.

  25. Would love to win this! I have a copy of the devotional that just released, and am excited to read it, as I haven’t read the book yet. This would be a perfect study to do alongside.

  26. I would LOVE to win this!!!

  27. Ann’s book has touched so many people’s lives, including mine. Would be great to use it in a small group study. I already have a few ideas: New Mom’s, or small women’s group; or small kinship group in our home. Thanks.

    A few years ago I left the corporate life to be available to help my mother in MI who had gone through extensive foot surgery. Knowing that she would need help to get to various medical appointments, shopping, or to go to the house of worship, the least I could do was return to MI, to “drive Miss Daisy!” Once routine set in, I had to decide to embrace one of the corporate motto’s that was adopted in previous years: “Be Right Here, Right Now!” God explained that I could not look back into the past, as I might feel some regret. I could not look too far into the future, as it could bring anxiety. Learning to “be right her, right now” removes anxiety which is replaced by trust. When trust abounds, gratitude surface!. I think Ann beautifully captures this, and I would love to be able to share the DVD study with my family, my church sisters, and my community,

  29. I watched a portion of the first session and it was beautiful. I’d love to have a copy

  30. Ann Voskamp has changed my life and winning this would be an incredible gift!

  31. My best friend and I are going to be starting a bible study with girls in our community in January! We are all reading through “A Thousand Gifts” already and can’t wait to talk about it as a group!

  32. As a worship pastor I’d love to win a copy of this to teach at my church.

  33. Thank you for the chance to win a copy of this, Margaret. What a blessing!

  34. The book is such a blessing and would love the chance to introduce others to the blessing through the dvd study.

  35. Would love to win this new OTG Bible study! I read the book last December and it was life-changing for me. I have urged so many others to read the book. Would love to do the small group DVD study with a group. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  36. planning on leading this study in January really hoping to win & save church some $

  37. This would be a fantastic way to find common ground with some new women in my life. I love Ann’s message and her heart.

  38. Ann Voskamp is a life changer.her book has been a source of enormous strength for me. I will be giving it to my sisters this holiday and have given it to friends as well. Funny thing is I do not own a copy I borrow from my library when in need my 1000 gifts fix. I’d so love to own this set. Gods grace in all. Thank you

  39. Hi. The minute I saw this study in Ann’s blog, I knew I needed to use it at church. I have been so impacted by her writings, that I want to share it with others. I know God will use this study mightily, wherever it is done.

  40. As the mom of a Type 1 little boy, I have met sooo many moms of preschoolers and school age kids and to my knowledge they do not yet know Christ…..it is soo hard to see your child suffer and it is a very lonley life…I think this bible study might just be the thing I have been looking for to offer them!!

  41. One Thousand Gifts is life changing! Would love to share this DVD with my small group.

  42. Mary@The Calm of His Presence December 2, 2012 at 3:03 pm

  43. I would love to win this! I’ve bought many copies of this book, but always give them all away.

  44. Going beyond the phrase “Stop and smell the Roses” but to see each moment as a gift. Much of the beginning of Ann’s video reminded me of the gift of memories spent at my grandparents farm! To bring back the pace to remember and to recognize moments as gifts from God. I would love to share this as the study for the new year, another year of gifts that lay ahead, yet unknown…but to notice with eyes wide open!

  45. Oh…Ann’s writings have transformed my life…I would love to have this dvd to do with others…so others can find freedom in Chirst…thanks for this opportunity to win~

  49. I have been following Ann’s blog for a long time now and have never had funds to buy her book. Would so love to win this. She is incredibly inspiring and challenges me all the time to go deeper in my relationship with the Lord. To be thankful. To live life mindfully.

  50. I’ve told Him that I’ll host a small group study. This is huge willingness for an introvert. But, it’s my worship to be obedient.

  51. I’ve been searching for a Bible study to share with women from my Church – this sounds perfect. I love Ann’s blog and I’m keeping a gratitude journal. Thank you for the opportunity to win.

  53. Thanks for the giveaway! Am looking forward to this study.

  54. Thank so much for the opportunity to win this DVD study. I have not read anything by this author yet but have read almost all of Margaret’s books.

Margaret’s books have changed my life and I look forward to reading the authors that Margaret recommends! Thanks! I wish Margaret was coming back to New England! We miss you!

  55. I am on my second reading of Ann’s book and recommend it to everyone who will listen. Would love to do this study!

  57. Would love to win this study 🙂

  58. Michele Laramay December 4, 2012 at 6:30 am

  63. I do regular Bible studies with a group of women in my church. Can’t wait to do this study! Thanks for the give-away!

  64. I have been waiting for this study to be available, we are using it in our couples ministry at church. My husband and I thought it would be a great study for the group. In these times and especially this time of the year, it is easy to lose focus of what our real source of joy is, so we cant wait to make 2013 the year of finding our true “Joy” in all aspects of our lives. I think our group will really enjoy this series.

  70. One Thousand gifts really impacted me. I would love to share this study with a group of friends!

  78. We could always use more encouragement to look for, see, find and record the gifts around us!

  79. Ever since I heard this was coming out, it’s been on my heart to get organized and start a small group using Ann’s book and study as a kick-off. I’ve counted over 1,000 gifts this year already and long to share that this is a way to experience God’s love afresh.

  80. I’m at #172 on my list…I have a ways to go but this has been life changing!

  103. I’m so excited about this! I have read the book several times, hosted an One Thousand Gifts breakfast after encouraging my friends to read the book, and given away several copies to friends.

  108. What a wonderful Christmas gift this would be for my BFFs! We love to study the Word together. =)

  134. I am currently reading One Thousand Gifts for the 3rd time and am purposefully going through it SLOWLY as I journal not only my gifts, but also recording throughout my list meaningful quotations from the book that I will want to read and read again.

  144. Blessed study, no doubt.

  145. Would love to win of course! :o)

  146. The DVD group bible study would be such a great study, the book is amazing!

  147. Thank you Margaret for this kind gift. It would be an honor to receive this. Thank you for the oppurtunity! 🙂

  148. Can’t wait to study this with a group of women!

  149. I would love to win a copy of this DVD study. Ann’s words are beautiful and true.

  150. would LOVE this one way or another. There are some kindred spirits around here that I would ask to do this with. 1000 Gifts has been life-changing!

    • This would be so wonderful. Hoping early next year to have a group doing this new DVD. I can’t wait! 1000 Gifts has literally changed my life and others are noticing. I’ve been counting since May.

  151. This sounds wonderful. TFS

  152. I love her book and would love to do the study!

  153. I would be Blessed to receive this study and gather the ladies for diving in together. Thank you!

  157. I LOVE this book and would really like to experience the study and DVD.

  158. Stephanie Goldsmith December 4, 2012 at 11:40 am

    What a joy to study blessings with the blessed and uncover truth together.

  159. I just watched the trailer and sit here with tears in my eyes, absolutely humbled.

  160. I have been thinking of doing this study with a group of friends and some ladies from church. Thanks so much for offering this opportunity to whomever is picked – I am sure they will be blessed by your generosity. God bless YOU!

  161. Would love to share this with ladies in my home as a small group study. How wonderful to have a study with Ann on DVD. A gift to count! Eucharisteo! Thanks or sharing!

  162. This would be great for my neighborhood bible study group. I hope to go through it with my neighbor ladies.

  163. Thanks for making this offer an opportunity.

  164. I have been very blessed through Ann’s book One Thousand Gifts. I would love to go further in depth with it by using this study.
    Thank you!

  165. We have been graced with abundant gifts that we too often take for granted. We stand on holy ground. We live and breathe through the graces we have already received. This sounds like an amazing study to bring us to an awareness and to enable us to live moment by moment an day by day.

  166. She has a wonderful heart! Her study would be a blessing to me!

  167. This is wonderful!! Really. This may turn into confirmation to what I believe God wants me to be doing in the first part of 2013. I am so thankful for this resource..it’s been on my wish list. But I will always be grateful for Ann and her obedience in writing One Thousand Gifts. I have read “the book” two plus times and created my own “cliff notes” that I keep handy along with my gratitude journal, now over 1200 gifts and growing. I sense that facilitating a group study would not only influence precious women and their families but also be a great discipline for ME to continue to solidify truth to live out gratitude in all. Grateful blessings to all….

  168. I am so excited about this study! I wrote my own lessons to highlight each chapter of the One Thousand Gifts book and then taught it to three groups of ladies because I was so taken by the book and HAD to share its incredible truths with others. Now we have something from Ann herself. Hallelujah!

  169. Would love to win this and lead a group of ladies.

  170. This would be a wonderful opportunity to dig deeper into the Word…

  171. I am just starting my journey with Christ, and was just Baptized 2 weeks ago. I am learning to that I have a lot of baggage to get rid of and so very much to be grateful for that I just never saw before. I would love to participate in this . I am trying to open my eyes and my heart wide to receive all the gifts that HE has to give, and I in turn would like to pass on.

  172. I would LOVE this study! Have been following her blog for some time now. What a great giveaway!

  173. Not since “Experience God” has a book had such a profound effect on me.
    Emmanuel-God With Us; in the habitual eucharisteo do we see-God with us.
    I thank God for providing us someone like Ann (heart after God) who is allowing God to teach us in these uncertain days, how through giving thanks by seeing His grace in each moment , we can have peace, unquestionable peace because God is with us!!!

  174. Oh! I’ve been waiting for this Bible study to become available! And, to arrive during the season of Advent…. Thank you for offering such a beautiful gift/giveaway to us!

  175. I would love a copy of the book & dvd study!!

    Thanks for the giveaway:)

  176. I am hoping to do this with a group of moms from my homeschool group and a few of my neighbors.

  177. Looking forward to sharing this wonderful study with neighbors and friends. Thank you, Ann!

  178. I have in the past thought of myself as a grateful person, but only recently through Ann’s ministry feel the ingratitude in my heart that is the root of all of my sin. Ingratitude easily strips my joy. How wonderful now to have a study to draw my heart companions who have walked with me in seasons of pain into a deeper experience of God’s grace & goodness. Your generosity in giving free copies of this study is a One Thousand Gifts (plus) gift. Thank you.

  179. What a wonderful book! I can’t wait for this study. Blessings to you for sharing!

  180. Thank you Margaret for sharing another authors study… True story, was at a local book store last night with Ann’s book on my list to buy! Walked away without it not knowing the study would be available today!! Would love to win and lead this study with my group in January!!

  181. I’d love to share this with my Bible study.

  182. LOVE her book! Lifechanging!

  183. Would love to bless others with this!!!

  184. The book has truly helped transform my heart. I give it to everyone I know. Can’t wait to do the study!

  185. I’m looking forward to spreading this message of eucharisteo to my sisters in our community during a Bible Study this winter. Thank you so much for sharing this resource for all of us!

  186. As a missionary family in Malawi we´d love to use this material in helping young believers coming closer into Gods presence! We just started with our own kids the Jesse tree Advent Devotional, an other wonderful gift from Ann Voskamp and her family.
    Every Blessing!

    It would be awesome to share this study with the gals in our church…to lift our hearts to Him through praise and thanksgiving as demonstrated by Ann Voskamp in her book “One Thousand Gifts”!

  189. The only thing I told my hubby I wanted for Christmas this year is this book. Now we’re learning the study would be even better! Something to look forward to one way or the other.

  190. I would love to have a copy of this! The book so moved and challenged me. I can only imagine how much I might learn from the Bible study.

  191. In my previous comment, I shared how much One Thousand Gifts has blessed me.
    I am so touched by the message, how can I not share this with others.
    I have already given this book to so many, who share the passion for this book and who are also eager to go deeper in a group study on “eucharisteo”. It would be a blessing to win the DVD study by Ann Voskamp.

  192. Please enter my name in the giveaway…. I’ve been praying about doing the DVD study with my six kids — the whole family! Ann’s message has helped in restoring my JOY in life!

  193. Ann’s book changed my life. I would love to introduce my womens’ study group to this new study!

  194. Thank you for the opportunity to enter!

  195. I’d love to win this study! I have conducted two book discussion groups on One Thousand Gifts and this would be a great followup to those groups!

  196. I am very grateful for Ann’s example. The way she has stepped out in faith in publishing One Thousand Gifts. I am working toward that kind of faith in my life and perhaps leading a small group study is a next step for me. 🙂

  197. Would love to include this in our ladies Bible study that we have. Loved the video and being a photographer myself, I am always grateful that I am able to share my passion for the beauty of God’s world with everyone.

  198. Gratitude is the gateway to praise, and Ann’s words and lessons are a constant reminder to live in gratitude each moment. When we do, we find our hearts inextricably bound to the heart of God in praise.

  199. Thanks for the opportunity to win the group study of Mrs. Voskamps book. I received “1000 Gifts” as a Christmas present from my mother last Christmas – what a blessing! I would love to share this with my Tuesday morning Bible Study ladies! We are finishing up a study by RC Sproul now. Focusing on the big & little blessings all around us in our sin-sick world would be an amazing way to start the new year together!

  200. Oh, how I would love the chance to win this gem! My small group has been perusing studies and this one has caught my eye. Thanks for the chance.

  201. What a great Bible study DVD! Would love to do this.

  202. Thank you so much for the giveaway. Please enter my name. Ann’s book has been a gift of God in my life, and I’d love to do the DVD study with friends.

  204. It would be great to win this!! Our sunday school leader just mentioned that she would love to lead this next quarter. I could gift it to her for our class:)

  205. I would LOVE to win this study! I have given away 10+ of Ann’s lovely book, One Thousand Gifts, and have more to send to other friends and family. Her book and blog have been such a blessing!

  206. As a new mom, “One Thousand Gifts” has been a challenging catalyst to see God’s gifts in every single ordinary day. Thank you for such an amazing book. I would be blessed to win the small group study, but I pray it goes to whoever needs it most.

  207. Gratitude is the gateway to praise, and Ann’s words and lessons are a constant reminder to live in gratitude each moment. When we do, we find our hearts inextricably bound to the heart of God in praise.

  208. My little Moms’ group is looking for our next book to do together. This would be great!

  209. This would be a great gift to share with others the life changing way in which thankfulness gives us a different perspective.

  210. Would love to win this study to do with others!

  211. I am buying so many this Christmas, it would be great to have a free one!

  212. Thank you for the chance to win this bible study! I would use it with a mother-daughter group in which I am a part. Nothing better to pass along to our daughters than the practice of being thankful in all things! Blessings to you!

  213. So excited for this study. Journaling gratitude everyday has made a huge impact on the lense I choose to look at my life through.

  214. I would be blessed if I won this. I love Ann’s book and have shared it with many. I would love the opportunity to use this in our women’s bible studt group. I know the others would grow in Christ through their delving into this study.

  215. Would LOVE this! The book has changed my life!

  216. I’ve read the book, and have been counting my gifts. God has used that to make a difference in my heart and life. God opened my eyes when we were going through a very difficult time when my son was in prison when a girlfriend gave me this book. I could not have made it through without Him breaking through in my heart and helping me see all is grace, all is gift.
    Would love to share this with other ladies who are going through tough times.

  217. Have just discovered Ann Voskamp and I think God is using her in a mighty way. Would love to win the study to share with my friends.

  218. Winning this would be such a blessing for our small church. Always looking for something to inspire our women. Thanks!

  219. I and 2 of my friends have started reading the book together this month. Having the video to go along with it would be a great addition to our study.

  220. My favorite book of the last two years!

  221. I would love to win this study. My friends and I seem to be in a ‘rut’ and I just bought them the book for Christmas and was looking into getting the study to start 2013 off on the right foot. Thank you for this opportunity.

  222. Giving thanks for give aways! So thankful for Ann sharing her heart so that we might each give thanks in our daily lives in order to receive His full grace! Would delight to dig into this DVD study with a small group.

  223. After hearing about this DVD study, I have felt led, thought very unqualified, to invite women to my home to do this study together.

  224. I love Ann and her book and I was JUST telling our Women’s Bible Study leader that this would be great for us to study next!

  225. I’d love to win the dvd study kit! I’ve already got it on my Amazon wish list!

  226. I’ve got a group of ladies anxious to start this study. And I’m so anxious to share what I’ve experienced since reading the book so others can have the experience and grow in their relationship with The Father and His Son.

  227. This study would be a blessing to me, my family, and friends with whom I would share it. Please enter my name and God Bless you.

  228. I would love to win this. I am a new follower of theholyexperience and I am blessed by it. A Blessed Advent to all!

  229. Would love this. I just finished a study with my small group using just the book. Am now preparing to do it at church.

  230. I would love to use this with the girls I’m discipling next semester! 1000 gifts change the way I approach my day– thank you jesus:)

Ann’s is the only blogsite I subscribe to and I read it daily! Thanks Ann, for making a difference in my life through your writing.

  234. absolutely loved the book and have gifted it many times over. am looking

  235. Our small group has considered doing this study. We’d love to win one! I’ve read One Thousand Gifts myself and loved it. I have started my own list. I would like the others in my group to experience it for themselves too. Thanks!

  240. After the celebration of the birth of our Savior and the the winters darkness starts to enclose us.. What a blessing it would be to share the message that He is there, joying over them with singing, and yes madly in love with them in the everydayness of their lives. Selah

  242. Would love to win a copy of the study – the book was inspirational

  243. I am so grateful to God for Ann and her work. I am drawn to God every day as I read her daily encouraging emails. The time spent reading her emails is my time to seriously pause and reflect on Him. I have a number of friends who also are encouraged by her book and we are planning to do the One Thousand Gifts dvd study over the summer. We CANNOT wait!

  253. Janet Krosschell December 4, 2012 at 12:17 pm

    I read and share Ann’s blog. Have read and gifted the book many times. Even found robin’s egg bird nest (just like the book cover photo) ornaments to give along with book at Christmas.

    Reason for desiring video series: In my Bible study our class Christmas gift this year will be a journal for each member to start making their lists of 1000 gifts. We have about 100 community men and women attending (many who do not yet believe), and viewing this DVD series together would be the perfect introduction for the use of the journals they will receive.
    Then will place in our church’s library for other groups to use when we are finished viewing.

  254. One Thousand Gifts has been such a life-changing book for me. I would love to share the study with our American Heritage Girls Ministry Team!

  255. I lead an ongoing bible study for mothers of young children and we would love the opportunity to do this study! Motherhood is such a hard phase of life to be in and we are all searching to find joy in the midst of our busy, messy lives. This DVD study would be perfect for us so we could focus on being thankful for the season of life we are currently in. We would absolutely love this opportunity to grow closer to Christ with this 1000 gifts study!

  256. He’s tugging on my heart in so many ways to lead this study with those dear to me. if i am picked, it is only because He tugged on yours too. thank you for the opportunity to share Ann’s priceless insights on the only Living Word. peace to you & yours.

  257. This would be a wonderful surprise for my weekly Bible Study group!

  258. Christina Burrell December 4, 2012 at 12:21 pm

    I would love to win.

  259. I would absolutely love to win this. I am looking to start a new bible study…and I love her book – perfect combination!

  260. I picked 1000 Gifts & a journal a year ago Thanksgiving weekend. After s year of thanks, I have been praying about leading a biblestudy. It would be grace to win this.-

  261. My neighbors and I are planning to do this study in the new year. Would love to win a copy, thank you.

  262. I know the ladies in our church would love this study!

  263. One Thousand Gifts has been such a blessing to me thru 2012, and my girlfriends marriage was restored when she began counting blessings! I’d love to share with others.

  264. I would love to take some of my friends through this amazing study.

  265. If it pleases God to move you, to pick me. Our small group would be eternally grateful.


  266. Having read “One Thousand Gifts” 5 times, I’m preparing to lead our small group women’s study with this study guide/DVD in January. I would be blessed to win a copy for a member of our group. Thank you for offering this gift.

  269. I would love to win this study. I am the MOPS coordinator and Youth Pastor’s wife at our small church and I think this would be a wonderful study for our ladies. Thanks for this opportunity to get the study FREE!

  270. With various trials facing our church and family this year – kidney transplants, an infant with open heart surgery, cancer, suicide, death, and my own parents’ devastation of their home and business by a landslide, etc. – I hope with Ann and my sisters to turn our hearts to gratitude and the pursuit of joy. “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. We are hard pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed.”

  271. I love Anne’s books. Would be such a blessing to have the Bible study and do it with the women in my church..

  272. Ann Voskamp’s writing has really impacted my life. As a missionary living in Edinburgh, Scotland, it can be hard to find the right food for my soul. These words speak volumes, and I would love to be a part of this study.

  273. Can’t wait to participate in this bible study!

  274. This would totally bless me.

  275. Thank you for a chance to win this. I would love to share this with my church family.

  276. This book has been so life changing in a year that has thrown so many other hard life changes my way. Thank you Anne and the Lord for helping understand God’s grace in a whole new way of thanks for His many gifts!!!

  277. What a life changing book I would love to win the study and share it with others 🙂

  278. I’ve seen this book on all the shelves in the stores for many months now. I was always curious, but never knew much about it. By sheer coincidence (read God acting anonymously), I happened to subscribe to Ann Voskamp’s website because I liked her journal/blog. Only later did I realize this was HER book. It’s on my 2013 must read list now. Thanks for a chance at the opportunity to share it with others. I have a few friends who would be interested in joining me for a bible study with a book like this!

  279. What an incredible book this has been! I was extremely excited to see that it has been made into a small group study. Maybe it’s time to lead a study again. So many need to see the blessings and joy in the everyday. Thank you.

  280. Thank you for this drawing. I would love to win this video series so that I could take it to some Christian workers in a hard and dangerous location after the first of the year. Ann’s teaching would encourage them and teach them the blessings of eucharisteo.

  281. I loved this book and would really like to share it with other sisters in Christ.

  282. I have been looking forward to this study coming out! I’d love to bring this study to my church 🙂 The Lord used this book to change my life. There is probably not a day that goes by that I am not thinking of looking for grace/gifts in the small and/or difficult things.

  283. I have organized a women’s retreat using this VERYresource! How cool it would be to win a free copy to use for us!

  284. Hi Margaret, I am a keen follower of Ann and am so excited for this giveaway! My girlfriends and I have already talked about doing this study together!

  285. I stumbled upon this website, through blissfully content! Would like to step out of my comfort zone, and learn, and share with others as I go! Enlarge HIS glorious love!!!! Blessings to you!!!

  286. Denise Barrington December 4, 2012 at 12:40 pm

    I would love to win this so I can share this amazing book and study with them!!!

  287. I’ve been wanting to read this book for a while now but have not yet had the chance. We used to have a ladies’ Bible study but haven’t met for about a year. I’d love to win this to get a study going again. Thanks for the opportunity!

  288. Belinda Schillinger December 4, 2012 at 12:44 pm

    Hearing and seeing Ann convey her thoughts on this dvd makes reading the book come alive. I would truely be blessed and very thankful if I am one of the individuals chosen to win a free copy.
    Another words my socks would be blessed off:)

    This dvd would be watched by myself and yes I would take tons of notes. Then I would share it with another woman, friend, relative, teen, with one rule that once they have viewed it they give it to someone who God has laid on their hearts to share it with:)

  289. Excited to be one in hundreds hoping to be one in five {:
    God bless you and keep you, and thanks for the opportunity (:

  290. I am a mom of 3 young kids and appreciate so much Ann’s ministry which reminds us to enjoy the moment. I’d love to host this Bible study in my home for other mom’s.

  291. I would LOVE to be able to teach this to the women at our church. The book has truly begun to change my life. Thank you for this opportunity!

  292. I would love to win this and share it with my friends at church.

  293. My Bible study group wants to do this study beginning in January. Would love to win this so we are ready to begin!

  294. Have read One Thousand Gifts a few times now and would so enjoy the DVD Bible Study and know just the ladies to share it with.

  295. Super cool idea: first the book and then the effort to get it into as many hands as possible to Glorify God. First our own conversion, but to multiply it through souls is so beautiful. Thank you for doing this. Becoming a collaborator with God in multiplying joy through thanksgiving. May we all turn our faces toward the warmth of His Son through a spirit of thankfulness…..making the world a better place. May all the Glory be to God…..what a wonder this amazing God we have. Thank you for saying yes to Him, the source of all our longing…

  296. Jette Herscovitch December 4, 2012 at 12:49 pm

    As I watched Ann’s video today, as when I r-e-a-d her book (4th time around) – my soul again cries out, “God, is it possible? Is this JOY really to be found through “thankful writings down” of Your graces? Is this life to the fullest attainable? And….oh!..I so want it! To have my soul holes sown up and filled with Him, ongoingly ….Yes! I choose. I choose to believe. To trust no matter what it looks like, a radical trust, I choose to pursue this radical “Life-to-the-fullest” that Ann, through her speaking on this clip and through her 1000 Gifts, so woos me to search for and never stop. I will go upstairs and write gift # 451: Ann’s video clip

  297. It would be wonderful to be the recipient of this dvd. Ann V has blessed my life so much.

  298. It would be amazing to win this Bible study! Ann’s words speak to me deeply whenever I read her blog or book.

  299. I already know what a blessing Ann Voscamp has been to my own heart, and I so desire to introduce her to some of the young married wives/moms in our humble church. I think this study would be a great way to begin some mentoring relationships amongst our ladies, both mature and younger.

  300. I would love this bible study. Thank you

  301. Shes amazing! If we could all get this what a difference this world could be!

  302. Manju Sara Jacob December 4, 2012 at 12:52 pm

    This is exactly what I am looking for, for my group of Mums and tots here in the Netherlands….. We are a mixed bunch from different nations, with our own ways… but foremost wanting to choose His ways and learn to be grateful and to give thanks! I have already bought a couple of copies of her one thousand gifts as Chrsitmas gifts…

  303. I have heard about this book from a friend and I also read the daily devotionals by Ann. She has such an amazing way of saying what God is all about and how we as Christians should relate to Him and our world. I know this book would be so inspirational for a study group of women that I have in mind. And, it would certainly be a wonderful surprise for the lady that leads that group.

  304. My mom and friends can’t stop talking about this book. I would love to be able to do the Bible Study version with them through this holiday season when we have so much to be thankful for.

  305. This is a way of life and I would love to learn more on how to live it.

  306. I’m excited to do this study and share it with others! I’ve been so inspired by her book already! Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

  307. I have ladies at my church asking to do this study – hope we win it!

  308. Paula Middendorf December 4, 2012 at 12:57 pm

    I LOVED the book, have committed to reading it once a year. Excited about the study. I host a Bible study in my home every week. This could be our next one!

  309. our very small women’s group;- women of every season – married, divorced, separated, single, college-bound, widowed – would love the opportunity to dip their toes in this ‘living water”… thank you for thinking of us ….

  310. Would be a beautiful beginning for the new year! Thanks!

  311. I want this soooooo Bad, and, I need it just as bad!!! Thanks for the chance to win this awesome giveaway, I LOVE Ann Voskamp!!!!!!

  312. I’d love to win this study. My husband and I recently purchased the book and loved it. It changed our lives (mine especially). When we saw the study guide was available, we eagerly purchased it and began it — only to realize it went along with a CD that wasn’t available yet! We went on Youtube and did find the video for lesson #1 and completed that lesson and are waiting for lesson #2. 🙂

  313. Just put this on my Christmas list yesterday! Realized….if I win a copy, maybe I can watch it if I receive as a gift, and also give a copy to my mom!!

  314. Thank you for the giveaway! I’m inviting some young moms from my neighborhood to join us for this study after the holidays. 🙂

  315. I watched the first session on Ann’s website. Was so blessed and would love to view the rest. Thanks!

  316. I know our family definitely needs this right now. We’ve been making so many changes but it’s so easy to “forget” to be thankful for even the small things. I love it!

  317. I have been trying to practice the art of “Eucharisteo” ever since I read her book. As an Interim Pastor’s wife I would love to share this with the women leadership at our church.

  318. Ann Vos Kamp has a gentle soul. I am trying to keep a gratitude journal and think it is a terrific exercise that everyone can benefit from. The DVD study would be a terrific way to help others do the same thing.

  319. We have had a small group at our home for over a year but would love some new material.

  320. I would really enjoy journeying through this with some dear friends!

  321. This book changed my life. Cannot wait for the DVD study!!!

  322. Stacy in Oregon December 4, 2012 at 1:06 pm

    I’ve been wanting to lead a study using One Thousand Gifts with our college group, but haven’t had the time to put together a ‘study guide’ – this would be super helpful! Thanks for the chance to win a copy 🙂

  323. Love her blog and all that it has brought to my family over the last couple yrs and certainly this yr. What a blessing to have a bible study to do in home with other women! Something God has placed on my heart for months now!!!

  324. I would love to do this study in my neighborhood Bible study.

  325. This book is so true to life!! It is such a struggle to hold on to Joy in the fast pased world that we live in…. Slowing down, counting the gifts, its a process its a blessing and its worth every moment!!! Why do I so easily forget this in my day to day?

  326. Loved the book! Would love the study for our group!

  327. The book was such a blessing to me…really one of those life-changing graces. I’d love to take it deeper. Whether I win or not, I think this is for me!

  328. Thoroughly enjoyed this book! Can’t wait to try the DVD study!

  329. Love, love this book! Would love to have the study to share with others.


  331. “One thousand gifts” has deeply touched me. I just finished the book and had to stop at time to stop my sobbing…I felt so connected to the writer and her struggles to fight for this fuller life that I also desire to live. Since then I started my journal and I am sharing Eucharisteo with anyone around me willing to hear. You have been a bleesing to so many may I become a blessing to others in the same way through hopefully receiving the DVD studies. Love in Christ. Bene

  332. I can’t wait to go deeper with this awesome study and share with others how to develop gratitude closeness with him and peace in all circumstances

  333. Would love to win this and use with the ladies from church!

  334. I am a member in a new start up church, Freedom Community Church. During the last year as Freedom was beginning, I was also dealing with some major challenges in our family. “One Thousand Gifts” kept pointing me to the Scriptures and to trust God with thankfulness—-no matter what my circumstances. Now I am planning to use Ann Voskamp’s study to bring ladies into fellowship at our new church home. So, I would love the new DVD study!

  335. Oh, I would love to win this. I so much enjoyed the book.

  336. The book has meant so much to me. I would love to share the message of eucharisteo through this study with the women at my church.

  337. Kimberly Kandel December 4, 2012 at 1:35 pm

    I listened/read the book last winter and I have my own journal going and we are starting I record gifts as a family. I would live to take this overseas with me when my husband and I take our family back to continue our work. Gratitude is truly a discipline, but is very rewarding and As I take each step through this mess I call my life I would love to share this fight for joy with others who have their own messes.

  338. Would love to win this. Thank you for a great giveaway!

  339. The book was wonderful, would love to do the group study with “the Girls” at church.

  340. I have read One Thousand Gifts OVER AND OVER! God has used it to pull me out of my “old man” anxiety, and is making me a “new man” by listing, listing, giving thanks. I would love to grow even more through the DVD study!

  341. Cheryl Hawthorne December 4, 2012 at 1:40 pm

    I would love to win this study to share with the ladies of my church. I so enjoyed the book, One Thousand Gifts, and believe that a study would be such a blessing.

  342. Ann is amazing! I love reading her books and blog! Thanks for a great giveaway!

  343. I would love to start the new year with this Bible Study.

  344. Thanks for this giveaway and the chance for this gift! Sally

  345. Read the book and enjoyed it very much. Would love to do the study!! Thanks!!

  346. I would love this for my small group. All mamas in different stages of life. We all need to give thanks.

  347. I would love to have the opportunity to win this so that I could study this with a group of women!

  348. I just finished reading this book, 1000 gifts. I would LOVE to take women through a bible study based on this book. What a gift!

  349. It would be great to win!!

  350. I would love to study this with a small group.

  351. Cassie McClelland December 4, 2012 at 1:49 pm

    I am currently reading the book, and it has been such a blessing! I would love to delve deeper with my sisters in Christ by using this study…

  352. I LOVE this book! It has transformed my attitude and I bought one for each of my four sisters for Christmas! My gratitude journal is such a blessing and I have encouraged countless friends to do the same! I would love to win this and bless so many others with it! Blessings!

  353. Have greatly enjoyed the book – Ready to lead a study an introduce others to this wonderful concept of giving thanks!

  354. I would love to use this with a women’s group at my church. Thank you for such a great giveaway!

  355. This is an amazing book and perspective changing story! I was so blessed by it especially during a time of incapacitating illness! I would love to have this study to facilitate for the women at my church!

  356. This book changed my life!!! It was like Ann took my perception of God, held it in the light of His word, then turned it a bit to see and understand what I never had before. How wonderful it would be to share it with a group of friends!

  357. Sheryl Stephens December 4, 2012 at 1:53 pm

    This would be so fun to do with a group of girlfriends.

  358. I have read Ann’s book and am currently participating in The Joy Dare. I have never before felt such a peace in my entire life. I am learning to breathe: Breathe in God’s Grace and Breathe out thanks for all His gifts. Winning this would mean a lot to me

  359. Love Ann’s book and have bought several to give to friends. I think our church women would greatly benefit from this study!

  360. I read Ann’s book in 2011 during an 8 month separation from my husband (during our 15 year of marriage). This book really helped me to accept God’s sovereignty in all things — even very hard truths. I’m happy to report that because of God’s faithfulness and his grace to us and through us, our marriage survived. We renewed vows in August of 2011 and are actually better off for having weathered the storm. Imagine that! I would love to work through this study again with a group. It was a life changing book for me.

  361. Would love to win this study to share with our Women’s Bible study group!

  362. I’d Love love love to with this study to share with my Bible study group!

  363. Our ladies group would really benefit from this study in the new year, as we are a group of young moms growing in God’s grace gift by gift… I read the book last year and have been forever changed. We would put the study to good use!

  364. Would love to go through this study because I love the website and just received my books to give out for Christmas.

  365. Ann’s book is the best I’ve read in MANY years. She writes like a poet and changes lives, mine included with her art. I would start a new women’s Bible study with this material.

  366. I love the concept of eucharisteo! The book, 1000 Gifts is so meaningful and rich. I have seen it inspire young, old, and in between. My husband and I are involved in a small group bible and prayer group that is amazing. I desire for my daughter (31) to have that same experience of unconditional love, support, encouragement, nurturing, learning and growing together with Christian friends. This study would be just the thing to pull together such a group. I would love to give it to her.

  367. We recently started a community group and I try and share Ann’s message of 1,000 gifts with everyone I know. A group DVD study guide would be an awesome way to accomplish this.


  368. Few books have changed my life like Ann’s has. I am eternally grateful for this wonderful work!

  369. I am so excited for this study, winning a copy would be even better! Thank you!

  370. The book has been a blessing, I love Ann’s blog, and would love this small group study!!

  371. I would love to receive and lead a study on 1000 Gifts!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

  372. I have read the book and my life is changed forever! I would love to dive deeper with a group of women or even just myself to discover God’s truths further. Thank you for doing this..thank you for this sacrifice and this passion to see women transformed by God’s amazing grace!

  373. I love Ann’s book, and this video is so beautifully done. My husband and I, along with three little ones, lead a small group of plain, wounded, wonderful people in our home each week. I would love to go through this study with them. Thank you!!

  374. I love your book Ann and would love to use the DVD study guide with my friends.

  375. I am planning on doing this as a small group study beginning of the year, this would be wonderful to receive and be a blessing to many.

  376. Loved the book and would love to share it with my moms group at church through this study!

  377. I have requested that all of our women’s bible study groups do this study beginning in January! Our goal is to have 50 or more women going through this at the same time and we’ll end with a corporate gathering to tell one another all the good things that God has done in our midst! It would simply be a blessing to win one of the sets of this study … thank you for the opportunity!

  378. I wanted to buy this but can’t afford it before Christmas. My heart is stirring through Advent and I long to gather some kindred girlfriends and walk through the DVD series together. This would “Bless my socks off” if I didn’t have to spend the money to buy it 🙂 Either way – Merry Christmas!!

  379. I cannot wait for this study to be released!!! The book is amazing!

  380. This is an AMAZING give away…thank you and I hope I am chosen. What a blessing!

  381. Ann Voskamp gets it! Oprah may have started the Attitude of Gratitude but Ann gives us the fundamental reason why we are to be grateful. Every time I open the pages of her book, I am humbled because once again, she has shown me the reflection of Christ & I am allowed to go deeper with Him. I want this for my sisters and any who would join in a study of Ann’s book. I would be most grateful to be given this dvd, guide & book of Ann Voskamp.

  382. I’m thankful for Ann. 😉

  383. This taking on of counting gifts…………to see through the eyes of Jesus has been another part of God’s work in me. I’m in a season of the hard thanksgiving…………#1300 and beyond. There are days of joyful thanks and now days of a sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving. In January a group of sweet sisters will gather together to worship and praise our KING through this study………..to be in community, fellowship and communion. I thank God for your generous heart in giving away three of these DVD’s! \o/

  384. Id love to win this! 1000 gifts is my all time favorite book. So blessed by it! Thank you!

  385. Thanks for posting this. I’ve seen Ann’s posts and other’s references to her new group study in passing, and thanks to your post I finally got to listen to the trailer. Oh, the irony of being too busy chasing dreams & happiness to listen to a lesson on slowing down and being grateful for what you already have!

  386. this would be an amazing Christmas gift! All is grace!

  387. oh, how i’ve enjoyed this book and i would LOVE to walk through it with other like-minded believers at my church! 🙂 thanks so much!!

  388. Love your book and your blog! It would be wonderful to win this and share it with my sisters at church!

  389. What a blessing your book 1,000 gifts has been. I love your attitude and your writing speaks to my heart. Thank you for allowing God to use you to touch so many woman who need to hear the truth in love as you so kindly express. I would be so grateful to recieve your DVD and bible study. Blessings and Joy to you!!

  390. One of the Stephen Ministers in the church I served as associate pastor gave me a copy of this book when I moved to my current church. I enjoyed it so much I purchased the book on my Nook so I could easily carry it with me at all times.

    Glad to know there’s now a DVD and study guide to go with it. I currently have seven women in a weekly Advent study, and I know that they will enjoy this study.

    Thank you for offering the free copies.

  391. I just started the book and am really enjoying it!

  392. I have been telling people about this book since I read it in October. I have attended a book study using this book and left wanting more….way more. I have taught my youth group girls and my family about Eucharisteo and would love to have a tool, or materials to use to teach more women. This idea of thankfulness being essential to leading a full life in the Lord…..it is revolutionary in an age of entitlement. It is an idea that our country desperately needs. Actually, it is more than an idea and it is a way of life.

  393. Wow – so excited about the opportunity to go deeper into this book via the study guide…thank you for the opportunity for the free DVD! 🙂

  394. I have read this book and been greatly blessed. It has encouraged me to see life through a different lens of thankfulness. I would love to be able to share this study with the group of ladies at my church.

  395. A new friend JUST recommended this book and it sounds like a phenomenal study for the ladies at our church! Would love it!

  396. Have been thinking that whis would be a good study for a group of us in my community.

  397. I love One Thousand Gifts and have purchased it for several family members and friends. I’d love a chance to use it as a group study!

  398. Would love to win this study!

  399. I hope to get this study and give it away to friends who don’t have or won’t take time to read the book. I’ve read the book 3 times and given dozens away. People need to understand and practice this deeply biblical truth.

  400. Just finished reading this book and I can’t stop talking to everyone about it. Would love to have this material to share with others. Will keep sharing its message, though.

  401. My sister sent me One Thousand Gifts in January, not knowing our father would pass in March. His death was sudden and very unexpected, unnatural and traumatic for our whole family. I started counting on March 26, 2012. Counting has helped me hold onto Jesus and my sanity. Eight months later, I am healing, but I am changed. Evil visited our doorstep. Giving thanks stood guard. My desire is to help other hurting women grab onto Euchristo as the gateway to joy.

  402. As a small group Bible study and book study leader, I’m always looking for great new material for deeper spiritual formation and growth. I would so much appreciate having this to share with many groups in the future. Thank you, Margaret, for offering this valuable resource…and as always, heartfelt gratitude to Ann for her God-given gift of sharing love through the written word.

  403. JANET L. CHAGNON December 4, 2012 at 2:59 pm

    I have told so many people about Ann’s web site and how I look at life so differently. Her book is inspirational on so many levels. I have not written down 1,000 of my gifts yet but am getting closer everyday. The DVD and study guide are great additions.

  404. Deborah Merrick December 4, 2012 at 2:59 pm

    I am at a stage of my life that I am enjoying every day that God gives me. I read the book, 1000 gifts, and it has enriched my life even more. I meet with a group of precious women and have shared with them about the book. I would love to do the DVD group study with them. Thanks for making this opportunity possible.

  405. Ann’s book is inspired and truly life-changing. I was amazed, upon reading it for the first time last year, at the insights she has gleaned by sitting at the feet of Jesus. She has been so faithful in sharing these wonderful truths with us. I plan to read her book again and again since one time through is not nearly enough.

    I am about to give away my 20th copy of her book so that women whom God places on my heart might be challenged and changed by the radical joy of eucharisteo. Thanks to God and His grace, I have recorded over 4,000 gifts to date and can’t imagine life without my “joy journal.”

    It would be a privilege to host the DVD study and share this kind of joy with some treasured friends. Thanks for offering such a meaningful giveaway.


  406. I soaked up One Thousand Gifts and look forward to reading Ann’s blog each day. It refreshes my perspective and renews my soul. I would love to use this study with my small group at church.

  407. Christina Blalock December 4, 2012 at 3:00 pm

    Planning to use this study in January….what a book!! I am so thrilled and eager to claw deeper into a more thank-filled life. Thanks for the offer, it will bless.

  408. Thank you for this opportunty! I would love to see this DVD study!

  409. Oh, it would be such a blessing to win the dvd study for me or anyone else. I’ve been thinking over a way to gather some of the ladies in my neighborhood: believers, non-believers, and those who know but aren’t walking in the Light. I had thought that a study of 1000 Gifts would be great but didn’t feel particularly equipped. The dvd and study guide would be a huge help; plus, I’d be blessed to hear Ann “in person.” Thank you for giving this opportunity to someone. 1 Thess. 5:16. I am thankful for Ann and the revelation the Lord has given her. Eucharisteo!

  410. I would love to win a copy of this bible study. As we enter this Christmas season I’m struck by how deeply I want to make it more about Jesus and not how many presents under the tree. Each year we do less and less of the commerical side of Christmas and focus on the amazing gift of our Savior – the best gift anyone could ever receive. I want the 4 amazing children the Lord has blessed me with to understand what is important and why we have so much hope. The book is thought provoking and convicting. Thank you Ann!

  411. Ann Voskamp’s book made a tremendous impact on how I view my circumstances & how I ultimately should conduct myself as a follower of Christ. It is my hope that my husband will learn how to look for God’s good in this world & in his life. Often, depression & anxiety cloud his view and ability to see the good. Studying the Word and hearing Ann Voskamp’s insights in her own life can be salve to his soul.

  412. I LOVE this book, and I would love to have our church go through this study at our church. It is the best book I’ve read in 10 years, and I am a prolific reader.
    Please enter me in the drawing.

    Bonnie 🙂

  413. Jennifer Williams December 4, 2012 at 3:08 pm

    A year ago a dear friend gave me a copy of Ann’s book for us both to read as a belated birthday gift. We have both been journeyed through some hard seasons and had many discussions the past year about the concept of living in this broken world when your heart is so deeply wounded, yet finding a semblance of joy. I began in March to record my list and a got to my 1000th gift in March. This exercise of learning to give thanks really impacted my life and I loved reading Ann’s website as well. Two months later my husband was diagnosed with a brain tumor which turned out to be a very aggressive and non curable cancer. These last 8 months have been really difficult for our whole family but I am so thankful that God had begun to cultivate this new language in my heart and it has helped me to keep taking one day at a time. Giving thanks hasn’t always been easy for me…especially during this journey…but as I am learning to give thanks in all things, God is working and I am so greatful.

  414. I just started thanking Him for three things yesterday. I went to your blog and was so touched by your story of all you all do for Christmas. You have a precious family and they have a precious mom.

    I’m in a small group that I don’t lead. But we’re beginning to lead each of us one week at a time beginning in January. I believe we would grow from doing One Thousand Gifts. God has a way of using you to prick the hearts of people and we’re a group hungry for more of Jesus.

  415. I am a stay at home mom in Calgary who has a home based business and four very energetic and busy children under the age of six. I struggle daily with finding joy in the little things, and am truly feeling like I am “missing it”. I truly (and with a heavy heart) feel like the last ten years of my life have just been a blur, and I have been operating completely in auto pilot mode. When each day is just focused on sheer survival of the demands of my children, our household, husband, and business, I find little to no energy or time left in the day to grow deeper in my faith or do anything to feed my soul. I am tired… Tired of going through the motions without a lot of emotion, and finding (what I used to find) joy in the “little things” more annoyances and frustrations than gratitude and contentment. I saw the youtube video about this study on Ann’s website and burst into tears. I can’t even begin to tell you how badly that I NEED THIS… I am connected to a strong group of young women who are also sisters in Christ who are in the same season of life that I am with young children. We are each other’s rock and support system, but we are always looking for ways to grow deeper in our faith and to find balance between work and family. It would be such a true honour and a privilege to receive this study so I can share with these amazing women the incredible message Ann has to offer. (We would not be able to afford it otherwise.) Thank you Margaret, for offering this amazing opportunity to slow down, breathe, and soak it all in. We only get one go around in this life, and I don’t want to waste any more precious time. Thank you for listening. Blessings to you and your family this holiday season.

  416. This book changed my life! I’d love to win!

  417. Read most of this book and love it so far!

  418. What a blessing it would be to win the dvd study and to share it with friends. Thank you for the opportunity. I’m a homeschooling mom of nine children and have found Ann’s book to be life changing!

  419. LOVED Ann’s book. It would be such a blessing to now do the DVD study with a small group. Ann has such a gift of words and I appreciate her honesty and humility in writing. I could identify with her from the start. I wish I could have read a book like this years ago!

  420. The last few years have offered my children and me a myriad of reasons for despair – divorce, betrayal by spouse and trusted friends, diabetes, depression, anxiety, ADHD, school bullying, financial disaster. Through it all I have known God is sovereign but it wasn’t until a dear friend blessed me with “One Thousand Gifts” that I began not just to survive but to earnestly seek God’s deeper meaning in these trials. I have identified so with Ann’s experience of “always the failing”, forgetting”, “yell(ing) at children”, “neglect(ing) cleaning the toilets”, “years,……the pulsing of ruptured hopes”. It’s me to a T. I cried out, “This cannot be! I am the child of The King – there has to be something more! Ann has shown me that there is. Eucharisteo. Tears still flow, the heavy burdens remain, but I know God is good. He is kind. And his blessings overflow. So I count them. Despair will not have the final word. Thank you, Ann. Thank you, Jesus for rescuing so many of us from the clutches of The Accuser, the father of lies, and for using Ann Voskamp to lead the way.

  421. Would love to win this study.

    First time at your site here… look forward to checking it out.

    Thank you.

  422. I would love to use this resource with the women’s ministry at my church! Have heard so much good coming from this book.

  423. Barbara Sheffer December 4, 2012 at 3:25 pm

    I would love to win this to share with the ladies at our church!!

  424. I am going through a very difficult time… thankfulness is hard, but I am trying to remember that gratefulness brings great fullness… I would like to win this study to share with my sisters.

  425. learningtofollow December 4, 2012 at 3:26 pm

    Thing book is changing me. Would love a copy of the study to do with friends and pass forward when completed!

  426. 1,000 gifts has helped me transform my thinking and attitude to one of gratitude! I would love to win the study to do with the small group i lead and also to introduce it to my women’s ministry @ Seacoast Church.

  427. This looks awesome!!!!

  428. Ann’s book has challenged me in my personal walk with the Lord. I would so enjoy sharing this in a small group of my friends. It will be life changing! Thank you for the opportunity to win this.

  429. The Lord has used Ann Voskamp’s honesty and poetic wordsmithing (deeply rooted in Him and His word) to challenge me about how I have been living as his follower. I realize that I can no longer claim to love Him or even follow Him if I am not living a life of thanksgiving. I would love to win this study to share with ladies in my church so that together we might live fully in His Grace, fully grateful. Whether I win this study or not, I want to thank you for making it available so others might be blessed!!!!

  430. Beautiful content. I can’t wait. If I don’t win it I will be sure to buy it and watch it with my peeps:)

  431. I was blessed this fall when a friend invited me to hear Margaret speak in Dallas this Fall. How thankful I was for the encouragement I received from God’s word that day…and for the snippets of truth that were shared with me (by someone at that conference) from Ann’s book. I’m constantly in awe of how God orders our steps and provides just the right ‘word’ at just the right time.
    From my friend’s desciption, Ann’s material must be fabulous… and I am looking forward to saving up for the book in the New Year. Praying God will bless many hearts as the Wonderstruck study and One Thousand Gifts Group Study are released.

  432. Laura Lee Cloutier December 4, 2012 at 3:41 pm

    Ah! This book changed my perspective on what it means to have a relationship with my Abba Father, Jesus. I have been practicing the discipline of Thanksgiving and it is changing into Joy. Rejoicing is hope and not a chore. I have been anxious to do this study with several friends and I saw this contest…so here it is, I want to win! Because I want to share the joy, the simple and complex joy of communion with God through Thanksgiving, real Eucharisteo Thanksgiving in all circumstances – not just the ones that are easy. XO and thank you for your committment to the Lord!

  433. What a generous giveaway! Life is so difficult and my heart goes up in prayer for each of the ladies who have shared in the comments. Praise to our God- we can always look to Him to give us strength and what a wonderful Hope we have in Jesus.

  434. When I read Amys comment, i prayed that she will win a copy of this exciting study as I felt her heart reaching out to the Lord. I would also really look forward to soaking in the precious and anointed words of Ann as her life has been such a blessing to me in so many ways.

    May the Lord bless you richly, With Love in Jesus. xxx

  435. To say that Ann Voskamp’s book has changed my life would be an understatement! I’ve been a Christian since 1978 – at that time, just 3 years into my marriage. Fast forward to today – my husband remains an unbeliever, and my marriage has been extremely difficult. After praying for my husband for so many years, and with other circumstances in my life over these last years, my walk with the Lord and my faith have been severely tested. I have been walking through a desert of which I did not think I would ever come out of, and had reached a point where I was truly wondering if it’s all worth it, wondering if God even cared anymore. Several months ago, one of my daughter’s gave me Ann’s book for my birthday. It has completely changed my outlook on life and has renewed my faith! As I was reading it, God challenged me to thank Him for my unsaved husband – something that was very difficult for me to do considering all the hurts my husband has put me through. In Ann’s book, she states, “Eucharisteo always precedes the miracle.” When I read that statement, it was as if God was speaking directly to me in regards to my husband! God has brought me to a point where I can thank Him for my husband and thank Him for all He has brought me through! My circumstances have not changed, but I have – Ann’s book opened my eyes to the fact that in EVERYTHING we are to give thanks and choose to see the blessings. I have begun the journey of writing down 1,000 things I am thankful for and am excited to see how God is going to continue to work in my life! My faith is being restored; my walk with God alive again! I have been sharing with family and friends about this life-changing book, and would love to have the small group DVD and study guide to share with them.

  436. My study ladies and I would love to win this. We have been goin on a little over a year meeting together and it would be a great study for us to dive into.

  437. Jennifer Brunsvold December 4, 2012 at 3:49 pm

    I found out about this giveaway from Ann’s blog ~ thank you for the opportunity to win this!! 🙂

  438. Thanks so much for a chance to win. I have several friends that I am most thankful for and would love to invite them to participate in this study! I love Ann’s writings.

  439. I would love to see these DVDs. Our small group is looking for a study to do in the new year and this would be great!

  440. 1000 Gifts has opened my eyes and my heart to see the wonders of the Lord’s numerous gifts that He has surrounded me with in a totally new way. Currently on my third read through this book… anticipating the small group video study. What an awesome idea!

  441. As soon as I found out about this give away I had to enter. I so enjoyed the book the first time and look forward to my second reading. I have always thought a bible study would be wonderful with this book as a guide. What wonderful fellowship it will be.

  442. This book has helped me so much during a tough year of growth. Thanks, Ann for a new perspective of life.

  443. I just recently read the 1000 gifts book. I am looking to use the study to reach some women in my neighborhood. I feel this study would allow me to connect with these ladies and share Jesus.

  444. I began reading One Thousand Gifts this summer. I am a homeschooling mom, pastors wife and women’s leader. This book has changed my life and I have recommend this book to many other women. I would love to have this DVD series to share with the women in our church and community. Thank you Ann for your obedience and yielding to Him.

  445. I am the Women;s Director for a military chapel full of Marine wives. We meet every week for Bible study and I would love to introduce them to introduce them to Ann through her Bible studies. These wives go through trials that are unique to them only and they hunger for encouragement.

  446. I would love to have a copy of this to do with some ladies in my Sunday School class! I have the book and haven’t read it; this would give me incentive to read it and apply it. Thank you!

  447. I can’t begin to tell you how much someone who doesn’t even know me has worked in my life… and, that person is Ann Voskamp. I read “One Thousand Gifts” over two years ago for the first time. I’ve read it twice more since. It became a Christmas gift for a dozen special women in my life last year… and I just keep giving my book to more friends to read. Her blog, http://www.aholyexperience, always pulls my heart and my focus back on what is most important… she reminds me that “Only one thing is needed.” I constantly need that reminder. I have passed on her blog to wives and parents and so many who are hurting or searching. Her writing, her transparency, and her constant pointing to God through scripture has challenged me every day… as a woman, a parent, a believer, a student, a therapist, a sister, a pastor’s wife. I am grateful for my church and the yearning we have to grow in Christ. I’d be honored to share this study with as many women as possible in the new year. Eucharisteo!

  448. The book has been like rain on a dry and dusty land. I have so enjoyed soaking. I am glad to see the DVD series and a way for discussion with others over what has closed us off so we can open again to God and his grace.

  449. We have so enjoyed studying this book in a group of mothers and adult/teen daughters. Counting gifts every day builds gratitude and joy in a way I never dreamed. I truly appreciate the new perspective and sense God’s presence with every gift I count.

  450. I know the ladies in my Bible study would enjoy watching this DVD study. We get together every Wednesday evening for study, prayer and fellowship.

  451. I would LOVE a copy of this study. I was recently talking about this study with a group of young moms at our church. We all agreed it would be fantastic to go through this study together!

  452. This would be an amazing study to do with my small group!

  453. I’ve read, shared, given and am re-reading Ann’s book. How quickly and frequently I find reason to complain and how slowly and seldom I embrace the myriad of blessings God so lovingly pours into my life. Reading 1000 Gifts and following Ann’s blog have been instrumental in transforming my thinking and perspective in regard to the importance of maintaining a thankful heart, even—no, especially—when I’m smack dab in the middle of a difficult or discouraging time in my life.
    For some time now, I’ve been considering the possibility of getting a group of ladies together to read and discuss 1000 Gifts, but until I read recently that Ann had put together a DVD series for her book I wasn’t certain how best to approach the study. So would I love to have the materials to share with some ladies in my area? Absolutely!

  454. Loved this book. I would love to do it as a study with my some friends.

  455. I have recently moved to a small town in Missouri after living in Phoenix for 19 years.. I have joined a small church and would love to not only connect with the women in the church but to share with them the joy of being thankful thru this bible study!! I have read the book twice and I loved it.. and so look forward to sharing it for many years to come! God Bless!!

  456. I have told everyone I know to read this book since I first laid hands on it myself. I even tried to come up with a way to make a study out of it! SO grateful that Ann finally did it for me. She’s way better with words than I am anyhow. I’d LOVE to lead a proper group with this study!

  457. Ann’s book has been life changing. I have read it, passed it on and then bought it again several times. I go back to it over and over. I am looking forward to going deeper with the DVD study.

  458. This would be an awesome study to do with friends….we’re meeting tonight to share the good gifts we already have!

  459. Would love to win this for myself and the women in our church. We are currently doing a book study and find it to be a great time for fellowship & learning!
    Thank you!

  460. My sister-in-law sent me Ann’s book shortly after my husband died last year (Dec 10, 2011). It has been a real inspiration; encouraging me to stay focused on God’s blessings and continuous work in my life.

  461. I would love to win! Thanks for the giveaway 🙂

  462. Melanie Peterson December 4, 2012 at 4:51 pm

    I would love to win and share this with my Lifegroup.

  463. Keeping my fingers crossed! Thanks so much!

  464. I have actually had the dvd bible study sitting in my online shopping cart for a couple of weeks now. I keep hesitating to buy it. Perhaps it is because I will win it? Wouldn’t that be lovely!

  465. I would love to win this giveaway.

  466. This book has been lifechanging for me and so many of my friends. What a great study to do with a group, or women’s retreat!!!

  467. I would love to have the group study to go with my book. I bought several 1000 gifts books as Christmas presents this year, it would be awesome to invite these people to do a study with me!

  468. I have so enjoyed 1000 Gifts and would love to go through this with the ladies in our church!

  469. I would love to win this for my daughter-in-law’s Bible study group. They are a group of ladies with teenage and younger children and this would be such a blessing to them!

  470. Her book and her blog have enriched my life from the inside out. I still have a few of her books that I hand out to hearts and souls that need the encouraging food of gratitude. I would be thrilled to receive this DVD and study guide.

  471. This study looks amazing. Our ladies would love the chance to study this:). Thanks and blessings. Carmen

  472. I would LOVE to win this! I read One Thousand Gifts last year, and it changed my life! I’ve been wanting to study it with some friends…this would be perfect. 🙂

  473. kimberly patterson December 4, 2012 at 5:25 pm

    would love to win something so awesome as this! thank you for doing this!!!

  474. I am so happy and excited about this study…hoping to share it with the ladies at my church.

  475. What a blessing! I would like to bless others with this study!

  476. Praying The Lord will use me to lead and learn this study with the women of our congregation.

  477. I have loved 1000 gifts so much. It so helps me remember whose I am and that He will always take care of me. Can’t wait to get the study guide. Thanks Ann for sharing your life.

  478. We did a Gratitude Event in late October this year with the women in our church. We had such a wonderful response to the one day event that we are now considering doing this DVD study as well. Reading Ann’s book has been life-changing for me personally.

  479. I would love to be able to share this study with other women.

  480. To be thankful is to remember that I serve God, not that He serves me. I’d love to enter into a thankfulness journey with my sisters in Christ. This DVD set would enable us to do just that. I’m thankful 🙂 that you’re giving these away, and resting in the knowledge that God will deliver them to just the women who need them most. Blessings to you this fine day!

  481. Thank you so much for the opportunity to win the study. Ann Voskamp’s book has made a huge impact on me and I would love to do the study as well.
    thanks 🙂

  482. The book has changed my life… would love to have the study series to share with others!

  483. I’ve been reading Ann’s blog for years; this DVD would be a blessing!

  484. I have the perfect group of friends in mind to go through this with! So excited there’s a study to pair with this incredible book.

  485. I would love this study! Just what I need…and can think of many others who would enjoy it right along with me. 🙂

  486. I would love to get to be a part of this Bible study with some friends. I have been blessed by my boss who gave me the book and wanted an opinion. I am sure she wished I would just be quiet a bit when we met again and I couldn’t stop showing her what I had learned.

  487. I have given several of these books as gifts! Truly life changing! I have a Bible study that meets in my home and I would be absolutely thrilled to win the study to use. Thank you so much for the chance!!

  488. Just finished the book! Would love to win this study to do with some friends!!!

  489. I am so looking forward to this study! I am thinking about using it for a weekend retreat, hoping it will allow even more women in our church learn together.

  490. God has in part – through this book – transformed my being from deep within. Reading chapters from this book has taken me deeper than I previously dared, and brought healing, real. It put words to feelings shunned, and continues opening my eyes to joy. Authentic and real. I would love to do this Bible Study, but I’m fine with purchasing it too, so that another three may receive the giveaway. 🙂 Blessings.

  491. A friend and I are thinking of reuniting a past Bible study group and using Ann’s video……she is the best……..would love to win it. Thanks

  492. Nothing has had such an impact in my parenting and my heart attitude more than Ann’s blog and book.

  493. I would love, love love to have this DVD!

  494. Yes, would love to do this book study in my neighborhood with interested women. Go Ann!

  495. I love 1000 Wishes and have bought copies for several of my friends. We’ve talked about using it with our small group when the discussion guide/dvd comes out, so winning one would be a blessing!

  496. it would be so lovely (and perfect timing) to welcome this much-anticipated addition to a soon-to-be women’s group. this book has been such a gift to me. i want others to know of the profound truths found within.

  497. I started reading “one thousand gifts” and have not been able to put it down. I want to be intentional, like Ann, and journal my gifts. I bought the book as a Christmas gift for my 3 daughters and my sister. I would love to win the DVD series and share it with my sisters in Christ.

    Thanks Ann…

    In Christ,

  498. Having just finished a year of battling breast cancer, I have had a lot of time to reflect on all God’s gracious gifts in my life. I am hoping one day to put them and so much more on grace, mercy, giving and receiving. Am enjoying following you and all the other gifted women for my daily quiet time. That said, would love to win am trying to read as much as I can to learn all that I can.

    Last year, on a particularly difficult day, a long-distance friend forwarded me an entry from Ann Voskamp’s blog. Receiving that email was like receiving a hot cup of tea, an afghan, and an invitation to slow down and sit with God for a bit. I continue to be blessed by Ann’s writings, including her book, One Thousand Gifts… three of which I gave away before finishing. And now I cannot wait to begin to experience life to the full along side other women while doing this study together.

  500. I just accidentally came across your blog. I’m a recent follower of Ann and am trying her daily gratitude with my children during advent. I think it would be awesome to have a small study group with her book for all the wonderful women in my life.

  501. Would love to share this with friends.

  502. I have been wanting to do this Bible study ever since I heard about it. Our ladies Bible study group will be finishing the study we are doing in a few weeks. It would be a blessing to do this study next.

  503. I love Ann’s book and recently taught about it at a workshop for pastor’s spouses. I would love to be able to do the Bible study.

  504. Wonderful book. I’d enjoy the study.

  505. Loving the dare to live fully right where I am. The DVD would be outrageous and an awesome opportunity for me to share the dare with those who aren’t reading the book. Thanks so much for the incredible giveaway. Jesus is bigger then us all!!!!!!

  506. Ann is so moving. She hit us right were we are living, in our own skin with all the sin. Stuff piles up and she help to keep it real. Love how she reminds of the Grace we are suppose to receive. Excited she has designed a small group study.

  507. Love her book!! Have read it a few times and really, really, really want to do her study with some ladies in my family. Thanks for the give away!

  508. Our small group bible study is looking for a new topic to start off the new year. This is perfect!!

  509. I appreciate you both! I’d surely love to be a winner…

  510. Our Women’s Bible Study group would love to dive into this for our next study.

  511. In August, joined a small group at my church after living here for 6 years. In January we will start a new book/study and would love to win this giveaway and gift it to my small group leader.

  512. What a generous offer! Thank you! I was introduced to this book this past summer by my Bible study leader and could not put it down… as a counselor at a church, I’ve promoted it to many clients and hold a summer study at the church I work at – this one would be a complete blessing! Again, thank you for your generous offer and introducing me to the “study” of this life changing book.

  513. I loved your book! It has really helped me to stay in the here and now. I realize that it is better to stay in the moment than to stick my head in the sand and not deal with life. God is awesome and has so many gifts for me every day. How precious it is to thoroughly enjoy them. It would be great to do the study with friends.

  514. I loved Ann’s book and would love to share this bible study with the girls ministry leaders I lead!

  515. I bought the book “1000 Gifts” on the recommendation of a friend last year. We met to study it together and encourage each other on our artistic and faith journeys. I had been through a difficult season with ministry changes in my life of worship arts ministry at the church during the last few years. It was wonderful for me to focus on the many people and circumstances in my life that I have to be grateful for. Little did I know what the Lord had in store for my life in the coming months. In August I gave the book and a gratitude journal to my two grown daughters. The next week a mass was found on the pancreas of their father, my precious husband, and he was told there was a 5% chance it was not cancer. We had planned the wedding of my oldest daughter in September and faced each day not knowing whether my husband would even be able to walk her down the aisle. After 2 months of doctors, tests, hospitals and a mass of prayer warriors across the country he is cancer free!!! God has miraculously healed him. We are forever grateful. My daughters have witnessed the power of prayer and experienced what it means to choose gratitude in the midst of great pain and uncertainty. About a month ago my youngest daughter texted me from college – “I’ve been making my 1000 gifts list. I am adding 5 a day in my journal you gave me. It really does help me start my day off with a thankful heart. I am also loving the book. Thank you for always investing and giving me tools for my spiritual life. I love you!!!” What blessings to a mother’s heart! He is faithful to draw us into His loving arms of grace. Thank you for the gift of this book in our lives. I would cherish the opportunity to study further with a group of women in your DVD study.

  516. I love Ann and would love to dig into this study with some of my friends.

  517. This would be an awesome Christmas gift for my wife…and I wouldn’t mind going through the series either.

  518. This is so neat.I just recently discovered Ann also. We do live in such a hurried life. I think this study would give women like us a way to put our lives into slow motion and give God back control of our harried busy lives.

  519. Ann’s book brought me to the place where my difficult marriage, parenting and life didn’t run me anymore. My life is full of gifts all around, now I begin my days looking for my gifts! I would love to be able to continue to learn more from such a beautiful sister! Ty for the opportunity. Blessings!

  520. So excited to hear about the small group study!!!!! I absolutely love the way God has gifted Ann and I’m excited to share her book with ten of my friends this Christmas….I can’t wait for Christmas to get here!!

  521. Sometimes I wonder if I’m the only man in the world who reads Ann’s blog, but it is totally worth the potential embarrassment! :0) Ann’s insights are drenched in the Spirit and often pull me back from the edge of the daily cliff that endangers my soul from the overwhelming amount of ministry and anxieties. Looking forward to seeing what treasures the DVD series presents.

  522. One Thousand Gifts has been such a blessing to me. As I was reading it, I sent a copy to my mother. I’ve spoken to my pastor about how this book has impacted me, and I would love to be able to share it with members of my church in a group study.

  523. The book was such a blessing, and after completing my gratitude journal of 1000 things, I would love to share this study with friends to bless them.

  524. So thankful for Ann and her ministry of writing, and not least her ministry of motherhood, which provides such inspiration for those in the same calling. Would love to win this. Thank you for the chance. 🙂

  525. Ann’s book has changed my life! I have shared her book with several friends. I would love to share her bible study with the ladies at my church, my daughter and my best friend. Jan 1st of 2013 I plan to begin my gratitude journal.

  526. My church has a weekly women’s outreach Bible study. We’ll be finishing up our current study just before Christmas. We are praying about what our next study should be. Several of us have been changed by exposure to Ann Voskamp’s book and blog, and know this would be a blessing to all in our study group.

  527. I found Ann’s book at the local library and fell in love with it. I have recommended it to all of my friends. And now that God has placed me as facilitor for an adult Sunday school class, this would be a great study guide for Lent.

  528. Snap, I love this book. This would be fun to lead a group of women through in the spring.

  529. This book is at the top of my recommend list. LOVED it! Would love to do this study with my mommas small group!

  530. Saw this at a women’s retreat and it caught my eye….glad to see it again here. Is very relevant to my life right now. Would love to see what this is all about.

  531. I have been a reader of Ann’s blog for many years. About six months ago I received a copy of One Thousand Gifts. I’m reading it slowly… processing along the way… its not always an easy read. It is a read of challenge, purpose and grace. As a family we keep a Grace Journal, and on Sundays in the class I teach for adults with cognitive disabilities we count our Graces as well. I’d love to share the study with my small group of women.

  532. Absolutely amazing book! Ann’s writing has touched so many lives! It would be great to be able to share it in group fashion with the study guide!

  533. So excited to see her book in a small group study!!

  534. I just started the joy dare a few days ago and I love it! Would love to do this study with a summer Bible study I’ve been leading.

  535. I bought a copy of this book as a Christmas gift for someone, but now I think I might have to keep it for myself! (or order another)

  536. Would love to share this DVD study with my small group! One ThousNd Gifts has changed my life

  537. One Thousand Gifts is a life changing book. It is one that you will want to re-read every year. I am using it as my advent devotional this season. TOTALLY want to win the small group study!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! is that enough exclamation marks to get my point across of just HOW MUCH I would love to win the group study? 🙂
    Thanks so much.

  538. I would love to bring this study to my moms n tots group! What a blessing!

  539. Can not wait for this study. Ann’s book transformed my thinking. What a blessing! Can’t wait to get the girls together, even my non church going friends will benefit! WOW!!

  540. We have been discussing grace recently in our communitas group. It is a difficult concept for many to really understand and grasp. This would be a great study to offer to really help us delve more deeply into this area.

  541. I would love to do this study with women at the church I attend. Ann VosKamp has been such an inspiration to me for many years…I love her Holy Experience blog and have shared it to facebook many times.

  542. Thank you for the gift. I’m sure it will be a blessing.

  543. Stephanie Jones December 4, 2012 at 8:43 pm

    I would love to start off the new year with this Bible study. I love Ann’s writings and I am currently reading the “One Thousand Gifts” book now. Thanks for this opportunity!

  544. Enjoyed her book so much. Would love to go through this with friends!

  545. I was introduced to 1,000 gifts about a year and a half ago. It has impacted my life in so many ways. I would love to have the DVD set to share with the ladies I mentor at a small Bible Inst. Ann has a real gift with words. I bless her for using her talents to further the Kingdom.

  546. We’re excited to hear a new “voice” at The Well women’s Bible study at First Pres Boulder! Can’t wait to introduce Ann to 150 women next year.

  547. I am a missionary in Honduras and we have a ladies Bible study with other missionary women. I have been wanting to do Ann’s Bible study (well, just read her book together) with the group ever since I first read her book last Christmas, but the dvd study would be even better!

  548. I love Ann’s stuff! If I win this set I am going to pass along to my daughter who would like to do this study with the ladies of her church. Thanks for the opportunity! 🙂

  549. I just discovered Ann & her blog about two weeks ago. I’ve been tremendously blessed through her blog entries and would love to do this study. Thanks so much for offering.

  550. Ann’s book has changed my life! Living thankfully and in grace has become my joy! I thought I already lived it, but Ann brought me to a deeper place in Christ.

  551. Margaret Spencer December 4, 2012 at 9:06 pm

    I have been scrapbooking my 1000 gifts while reading the book. I am excited for this studyand would love to share it with others!

  552. I would love to win a copy of this to share with the women I meet with in Sunday school. We are a small group and this would be perfect!

  553. This book changed my life. Would love to win the study. Thanks for the giveaway. 🙂

  554. Many in my life are struggling right now. A girlfriend who’s husband was just diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, one who’s husband is leaving, death…I would love to bring them another way to look at life- a thankful perspective. It would bless me and those in my life.

  555. This book totally changed my perspective!!! I have passed it on and hope to start a small group in my hometown with her DVD study!

  556. My neighbors and I have just started discussing this book and LOVE it, I didn’t know there was a DVD study guide! YAY!

  557. Thank you for offering this study.
    I have share the book with many. Now to study together in community through the Bible study will multiple the joy of the journey!

  558. I loved Anne’s book and I would like to use the study to go back through it again and really soak it into my heart more. Thank you for the give-away opportunity.

  559. Sandra MacGinnis December 4, 2012 at 9:36 pm

    To become thankful to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is a gift. Start Counting.
    God Bless

  560. We just started the “Pursuing God’s Love” Bible Study and thus far it has been great!

  561. Learning to hold on to the simple and Holy of this beautiful life. Continuously healing. Enjoyed the perspective Ann gave in this beautifully written book. Had a major impact on my understanding of living life in thankfulness.

  562. Ann is truly inspiring and her book had a profound impact on my life during a very long valley. I’d be beyond excited to receive the study 🙂

  563. I would absolutely love to have a copy of this. I have been blessed beyond expression by Ann’s words, and would love to study together with a group of girlfriends. Thank you so much for kindly offering us the chance to win!

  564. I’ve read her book and was so inspired by it. Having the DVD would be awesome!

  565. I am just becoming acquainted with Ann through her Advent devotional emails. God is drawing me into a quieter life within, and all that I have read of Ann’s has gone right along with what seems to be speaking to my soul. I so look forward to seeing the wonder in every day with fresh eyes!

  566. I would LOVE to win this DVD set! It would be such an incredible blessing to me right now! I have lived with chronic pain for over 11 years now and I recently had a good friend pass away. I’m really struggling and I think Ann Voskamp’s wisdom and teachings from 1,000 gifts would really benefit me to learn how to handle my circumstances, gain a deeper trust in God, and become more aware of all the good gifts He gives and turn to Him in praise. I’ve heard wonderful things about the book, but right now it is difficult for me to read, so I would really appreciate having the DVD set. Thank you so much for doing this great giveaway!

  567. I would love to win this! I have wanted to read the book for a long time and to read the book along with the small group study would be great. Also, our small group is looking for something new and this just might be it!

  568. I would love to win this so that I may lead a small group with this study. What a wonderful giveaway!! 😀

  569. Exciting! Based on the number of ‘commenters’ it is seems like a very effective study. Thank you for the opportunity!

  570. I would LOVE to be blessed with this set! I LOVE Ann. I have been so blessed by her writing. It has been amazing to see God work through her for me. Her blog posts seem to come miraculously on the days that I need them most. I never cease to be amazed at how wonderful God is at blessing our lives through others and how when we speak up and show up for each other, we are being Christ’s hands. Thanks!

  571. Would absolutely love to win this study! I just bought two books for Christmas gifts.

  572. I would love to win this,

  573. Just looked up the book on my kindle. I added it to my must read and next i will look.up Ann blog. The reviews sound great . I am looking forward to Wonderstruck but i would love to try and have a weekly Bible study in my home. Thankful for the chance to win some materials that may give me that opportunity!

  574. I keep buying copies of One Thousand Gifts. I want every woman I love to read it.

  575. Donna B Oliphint December 4, 2012 at 11:16 pm

    Ann’s book changed my life! I’ve given several to friends and recommend it to so many more. While I have not started my gratitude journal–hope to start the new year with it–my days are filled with thanking God. I so want this study, and plan on using it either for a ladies’ ministry I teach in or for a small group study at my house.

  576. An attitude of gratitude is life changing! Would love to share this study with friends!

  577. Last spring a friend sent me Ann Voskamp’s “One Thousand Gifts” in response to a letter in which I shared recent low points I was still struggling with. It was good the book’s cover appealed to me and the author had an easy writing style, because initially I “argued” with the author. I was so weary of getting advice from people to “live simply,” “live in the moment,” when I was already doing so much more of that than they were, and here was another author offering advice on doing what really matters, when she was simultaneously raising 6 kids (I have 5), writing a book, blogging, and obviously reading & studying, a lot. What could she say to me, when she was trying to do so much, how did she have time for her kids, for her faith, for her writing?

    Then I stopped arguing. Ann’s words cut right through to my heart and I suddenly felt known by this stranger, cut right through to my heart, in a way that still is incredibly emotional for me, bring tears to my eyes, in a beautiful way. Ann has a beautiful way with words, and a depth of questioning and striving for God, and the same crashing between moments of reverie and joy in her faith which coming crashing against how to cope with raising children, when all my good intents fail me and my complete inadequacy is exposed. Suddenly I didn’t care whether Ann was trying to do too much or not. Her words, her shared struggles, made tears surge to my eyes and gave me hope. Here was a stranger and reached right into my core with words of hope in a way no one else could.

    I’m glad to hear about this group study guide. I recommend Ann’s book freely, even though I can’t know if it reaches others the same way it inspired me. I don’t know if it reaches all mothers, or parents, or Christians, or just anyone, the same way, but I’m certainly game to revisit it and share it with a group.

  578. Just this weekend I start reading in the Dutch version of ‘On thousound Gifts’ I’m so happy that the book and the blog of Ann Voskamp crossed my way. It feels like a miracle how things can change when you live in eurcharisteo. I want to learn more about this way of living and I hope more friends in the Netherlands will read the book so that we can start to could our blessings.

  579. My friend recommended Ann to me a few weeks ago, when I started home educating my children. In about a month I’ve read the book, followed her blog, started the 1,000 gifts devotional and my 7 year old has asked Jesus into her heart and started her own 1,000 gifts list of thanks.

    God has been encouraging me to host bible for the women of our church who serve so much and could really some Eucharisteo in their lives. We are starting in January and I would really like to start with this study!

  580. I would LOVE to lead this study in our small US military community in Germany. We are an active duty Army family that just finished our 5th year long deployment in 9 years. This book helped me get through the last two of those years – and I want to help others who are struggling to find joy as their husbands fight an ugly war and are away from their families. Thank you for this chance!

  581. I love this book and have shared it with others as the gift that keeps on giving. I would love to use this tool to share the life-changing lessons with my Bible study group. I know it would be a blessing. Thank you for the opportunity!

  582. Thanksgiving truly is the secret to bring content on all circumstances. It would be so wonderful to share her perspective and wisdom with the women in my community.

  583. Sounds like an amazing study!
