One Thousand Gifts Group Bible Study by Ann Voskamp.
Begin to find joy in what really matters.
"How do we find joy in the midst of deadlines, debt, drama, and daily duties?" New York Times bestselling author Ann Voskamp wondered. When your days are filled with the mundane, disappointment, or even darkness, how can you break the bondage of self-hatred and fear that has white-knuckle control on your life and instead embrace the everyday blessings that will immerse you in Christ's fullness? How can you live your life with a heart overflowing with delight?
In this five-session, video-based Bible study, Ann encourages participants to take on the life-changing discipline of journaling God's gifts - to really look at life and find the good in it. It's only in this expressing of gratitude for the life we already have that we discover the life we've always wanted...a life we can take, give thanks for, and break for others. And only then can we know the impossible right down in our bones: we are wildly loved - by God.
Embark on this personal, honest, and fresh exploration of what it means to be deeply fulfilled, wholly happy, and finally fully alive.
The DVD includes five 18-20 minute video teaching sessions for Ann Voskamp from her farm in Ontario, and the study guide includes video notes, discussion questions and Bible study, between-session activities, and journaling space that will all help you to further explore the topics Ann discusses in the video teaching.
