One Thousand Gifts Book Review

I had the opportunity to read and review Ann Voskamp's best seller "One Thousand Gifts". I had seen the book all over, in every Christian bookstore that I go to. So I wanted to get a copy to read myself and see why the book was so popular. 

My first impression of Ann's book was that it was kind of lengthy and overly poetic, I didn't see why it was so popular... just being honest here. However, after reading more I realized what the book was really about. The slogan that goes along with book "A Dare To Live Fully Right Where You Are", led me to believe that the main message of the book would be about getting more involved in church, and serving where you are, that type of thing. Which isn't bad, but it is kind of over preached in Christian "self help" books, in my opinion at least.
