A Thousand Gifts

Christmas 2012 has come and gone; did you get One Thousand Gifts? Today I'm excited because I did. My friend and mentor Sally recommended it and I have a really good feeling about it. It's called One Thousand Gifts: A Dare To LIVE FULLY Right Where You Are and it's by Ann Voskamp. The title intrigues me -- who doesn't love a good dare! What are you reading this week?

  2. Let's see...what am I reading this week? So far lots of instruction manuals for the kids' new toys and board games and my new rice/slow cooker!!! Your new book looks like a winner!

  3. 1000 Gifts is fabulous! I love her blog aholyexperience.com. I plan to restart my gift list in 2013.

  4. Yes! I'd love to hear what you think about it, too.
    You don't want to know what I'm reading ~ ha ha! It's a ridiculous but fun fantasy.

  5. I am reading It's Your Ship by Capt. Michael Abrashoff. It is the story of a Capt who took over a ship that lacked productivity. The responsibility to improve their performance rested with him. He realized he had to improve his own leadership skills before he could improve his ship. His secrets include soliciting his crew's suggestions, communicate what he wants, and focusing on purpose. Sounds like a perfect plan for a school.


I really enjoy hearing from my readers; thanks for sharing your reflections with us!
