Be the Gift, by New York Times–bestselling author Ann Voskamp, will challenge and encourage you to listen to God and look for opportunities to be His gift to others.

The idea that even in the depths of our own brokenness God can use each of us to be a gift to someone else is powerful—that He makes each of us enough to give to someone else. Just as powerful is the realization that in becoming God’s gifts to others, our lives become more abundant: “Maybe the only abundant way forward is always to give forward.” Ideas this powerful need to be put into action.

Live out the messages in Ann’s bestselling books, The Broken Way and One Thousand Gifts, with Be the Gift, a practical guide that takes you through each day of the year with ways to bless those around you.

Featuring selections from The Broken Way and Ann’s blog, beautifully designed quotations, inspirational verses, and Ann’s signature photography, this gorgeous book will be an incredible gift to any loved one. It also includes pages of perforated gift tags in the back to include with a meal dropped off for an ailing friend or a pie baked for a friendly neighbor or even passed to a friend with a much-loved book.

One Thousand Gifts encouraged readers to live a life of thanksgiving and to chronicle the gifts from God in their everyday lives. The Broken Way reminded that freedom is not found beyond fear and pain, but within it. Now Be the Gift will unpack and chronicle the next step to really live in communion—opening ourselves up to givenness in spite of our brokenness.

Review by Teresa
Overall Rating
I have not read Ann’s other two books that probably influenced this one, but One Thousand Gifts is on my reading list. Her latest book, Be the Gift, is full of spiritual truth, but it is not something to read when you want to just feel lighthearted and move on with your day. The feeling of sadness and sacrifice — and the quiet joy that comes in the midst of those when you focus on giving and thanksgiving — is prevalent. The feeling of sadness stuck with me in a way that made my heart ache for the tragedy that the writer has experienced in her own life. The Christian walk is often about self-sacrifice and joy in the midst of sadness. Rather than comforted, I felt uncomfortable (which is not necessarily bad, as the Christian life is not entirely comfortable if you are really following Christ). Part of “being the gift” in a hurting world is the willingness to minister to people who are going through hard times, to inconvenience yourself, to walk through the sadness with them, to give when others would take, to stay when others would pull away. My tendency is to protect my fragile heart when it seems like relationships are about to get “too real” or when I can see hurt coming.Without thanksgiving, it is impossible to keep the mindset necessary to journey through hard times. Communion with Christ comes through thanksgiving and through sharing in — and accepting, with thanks — his sacrifice. This is how we have a strength that those who are not Christians might find hard to understand. This book is about turning your brokenness into abundance. (Posted on 10/25/2017)
