Ann Voskamp is a poet with a heart for God. Don't be satisfied to read thru this book only once, for each time you go back and read - another layer is revealed and another message is there that your heart wasn't ready for the first time through.

I love this book! I would encourage everyone to get their hands on a copy, find a friend to read it with and discuss each chapter as you go. This has been a true blessing to me!



  1. My daughter gave me this book for Christmas. After I started reading it, I became a little distracted with her writing style. I had to put it down around chapter 4, but I am hoping to go back and try again.

  2. We just finished the book. I had to read each chapter twice, in quiet...there was always something layered in her sentences that I missed the first time. Definately not an easy read, but it was so very good. I am on blessing #399 in my journal, and searching moment by moment!!
