So, if you are looking to read a new book this year, and need a place to start, I highly recommend
"One Thousand Gifts" by Ann Voskamp. My women's encouragement group has been going through it on Wednesday nights, and it is really life-changing. It is all about giving Thanks in EVERYTHING. It is about accepting each moment as a Gift from God, and living with open hands, accepting everything He gives (fun and not-so-fun), and giving Thanks. It is about keeping a list of the Gifts God gives each day. I have started keeping a list since October...not every day...but as I can...and it has been such an Amazing life-changing thing. There is just not a way for discontment to stay very long when you are doing that! So, if you are looking for a new book to read this year...go for it!
