1000 Gifts {Giveaway}


I mentioned in another post how a friend of mine gave me this book and how I think everybody should read it.  Well, now that I’ve finished it, I’m even more convinced that it is a treasure of GREAT VALUE!

I love to read but honestly I don’t have a whole lot of time or energy to do it.  Even my good intentions are over-powered by the weight of my eyelids or the call of, “MOOOOOM!”  But every once in a while a book that will come along and grab me from the start.  It will hold the power to prop those droopy lids open and keep that distracted brain focused and transform me.


This book has transformed me. 

This is not a feel good-name it claim it-all is perfect in Christ book.  It’s truth.  Truth that transforms and renews.

Ann’s style of writing touches a place deep in my soul.  My friend said it best when she told me she returns to it again and again.  I can see why. And I will be doing the same.

I savored every page of this book.  I read it slow and deliberate, sipped it, like the perfect cup of coffee that you never want to end.  It was that delicious.

If you are ready to move your relationship with God to the next level.  If you crave peace and joy.  If you desire to walk in the fullness of God’s love and goodness.


I am making this book required reading for my daughters. 

Because I feel so passionately about this, I am going to give away 2 copies of this book.  Out of my own budget.  Because it’s THAT important and I want you to have THAT joy!

I have one requirement.  Only one. I’m not even going to require that you follow my blog.  Who cares!  I just want you to promise me that you will read it.  That’s it.


Leave me a comment with your email address and a promise to me that you will read it if you win and you will be entered.  I’m not going to do anything with your email, just email you if you win.  I’m not that fancy!  (smile)

I don’t want to put an end date on this giveaway…Probably the middle of March.  In the mean time, why not join me as I embark on a Joy Dare.  Only good can come of it. 

With gratitude and love,

Mrs. Taffy


  1. I've checked this out at my library before. LOVE this book. I would read this over and over and over again. I love Ann's writing style. Her blog refreshes my soul with her writing!

    I really appreciate it when a blog writer does a giveaway of something they really believe in and not just because it was given to them to review!

    God bless you on your journey.

  4. YAY!!!
    You read it.
    I started reading it over a year ago,... nope haven't finished it yet. That's me though will all books it seems.
    I just wanted to leave a comment to say how lovely the photo of your GIFT LIST is.

    1. Thanks Mo! I don't normally finish books either...that's why this one is SO significant to me!

    2. Almost every time I open it though, it hits me right where I'm at. Love how God does that.
      It is significant isn't it!
      Perfect timing for this generation.

    3. I pretty much cried my way through the book. I'm sure my family thought I was crazy. Drip. Sniff. Drip. Sniff. I hope the Holy Spirit speaks to the winners in the same intense way He spoke to me through this book! I wish I could buy a case to give away.

  5. Wow, this sounds like a really good book. I think I will get a copy if I don't win.

  6. I have had this book on my wish list for a year now. I've heard so many good things about it. I so hope I win! :) Thank you for the chance. I promise you, I will read it.

  9. It sounds like a really wonderful book and is one I haven't come across before. I'm so glad it touched you in the way that it did. I also love it when books do that to me and they make me desperate to read on. The amazon reviews are singing its praises and I promise I would read it if I won.

LOL! It has to be pretty special for me to finish a book off! :) I have heard good things about this book, and it was just brought up again last Tuesday at my homeschool support group meeting, and I thought to myself...oh yeah, I wanted to read that book!
