As I’m taking a summer break from writing, I’ll be offering you a summer tour of some of my favorite faith blogs. This week I’m excited to share a blog by Ann Voskamp. If you don’t yet know Ann, she is a a popular author of many beautiful books, such as bestseller One Thousand Gifts, A Dare to Live Fully Where You Are.
One Hundred Gifts inspired me to write my earlier blog Radical Gratitude as a Spiritual Practice which I hope you’ll consider reading again or for the first time — you’ll learn more about Ann and her book there!
As a farmers wife, writer and mother of six children, Ann truly inspires! She also writes stunning blogs at Holy Experience, and I’d like to share one with you today for our Blog Tour #2. If you haven’t read Ann’s blogs, you’ll be blessed by her writing and her beautiful website!
