About the Group

If you're feeling the weight of everyday life and are seeking God for a way out of the mundane grind, this is the group for you. The wonderful Dyann Murphy will be leading us through Ann Voskamp's book, One Thousand Gifts, during Monday night book study. Following through an interactive study guide, along with video modules, this 12 week group will rediscover what it truly means to be thankful

Details

This group will meet in room 129 at Eastridge. Childcare will not be available during this meeting time. Books and study guides can be purchased on your own, or you can pay for a book at the first meeting and we will purchase one for you (discussions won't begin until week 2). 

Book Summary

Just like you, Ann Voskamp hungers to live her one life well. Forget the bucket lists that have us escaping our everyday lives for exotic experiences. 'How,' Ann wondered, 'do we find joy in the midst of deadlines, debt, drama, and daily duties? What does the Christ-life really look like when your days are gritty, long--and sometimes even dark? How is God even here?' In One Thousand Gifts, Ann invites you to embrace everyday blessings and embark on the transformative spiritual discipline of chronicling God's gifts. 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. Let Ann's beautiful, heart-aching stories of the everyday give you a way of seeing that opens your eyes to ordinary amazing grace, a way of being present to God that makes you deeply happy, and a way of living that is finally fully alive. Come live the best dare of all!
