Books of the Year ~ Gold Medal Winner

DISCLAIMER: True, I write fiction. Fiction is what I devour, love, breathe. But you should know that this year's winner is a non-fiction book. Why? Because the writing is so stellar, the prose so weepingly beautiful, that it just had to be in first place.

One Thousand Gifts
By Ann VoskampZondervan
978-0310321910

BACK COVER:

It's only in this expressing of gratitude for the life we already have, we discover the 
life we've always wanted...a life we can take, give thanks for, and break for others. We come to feel and know the impossible right down in our bones: we are wildly loved--by God.

MY REVIEW:

Awesome. With a side of awesome sauce. Ann Voskamp rocks. Not only does she have fantastic, insightful, inspirational things to say, but she says them in ways that make this writer's jaw drop. Her prose is a-freaking-mazing. Do yourself a favor and snatch up a copy of this book. You will NOT be sorry.

I love this book, too. Ann is such a leader and someone I'd love to know better. But you're freaking awesome, too, Michelle. I hope you have a Happy New Year and huge successes in 2016!
