Ann Voskamp’s blog, A Holy Experience which I have followed for a while, is about the simple wonders of our daily walk with God. Her book One Thousand Gifts- A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are, is anticipated out soon.
I have had this book on order for a while and while awaiting it’s delivery I wanted to share this trailer with you, so that you may order it as well.
Watch the video to see a taste of what is to come in the book. Once I receive the book, I will stop back to do a review as well. I hope this inspired you today.
Let me know your thoughts…
These are ten things that I couldn’t get through most days without, in no particular order…
1. A cup of tea (rather multiple cups of tea!)
2. My latest read (currently Three Cups of Tea)
3. My daily devotion book
4. Burt’s Bee’s lip balm
5. My planner with my “to-do” list
6 . The three pillows I sleep with-
7. My creative journal

What things do you depend on to get you through your day, your busy schedule, or your routine? Of course the people in our lives are most important, but there are also “things” that we depend on and look to for encouragement, purpose, or just for comfort. Some days the list changes, other days it stays about the same, but we are creatures of habit.
Think about what makes you function, work, smile, or just get through the day.
Just like flowers blooming in the spring… I am excited to share some “blooming” new features will be added to Celebrate Life Everyday over the next few months!
First, I will be starting an Interview Series. I am so excited about this! The interviews will be with highly creative, talented people who have so much to share with us. Some of these fantastic people will be kindred spirits that I know and have worked with, others we will both be getting to “know”. The first interview will start in just a week or two!! This can’t be missed…
Next… Giveaways! Yes, free things to win! I will be hosting contests and special events to give things away to readers like you! All you have to do is read often to find out what free treasure could be yours next… it’s like an online party!
There are of course lots of additional things planned for the Celebrate Life Everyday blog, but the last thing I am going to share with you now is… online shopping! Yes, this will be coming in several formats, but I will be able to share all of my favorite things with you, and you will be able to click on the link and learn more, or to purchase that item as well. I am working on this as we speak and I will reveal more as soon as things are up and ready!
Thanks for reading and I look forward to sharing so much more with you….
Reading is as good for your soul as water is to your body. So many people never take the time to read for the joy of it. Challenge yourself to read more often. For some of you, this may be a book per week or per month. Make your goal a bit of a stretch to challenge yourself. Choose some books that you wouldn’t normally read to stretch your mind, and have fun!
