One Thousand Gifts – Chapter One Response

Spoiler Alert: If you have not read the first chapter, don’t read my response! I read the first chapter of One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp this afternoon.  Absolutely heart wrenching.   My heart was absolutely wrenched inside my chest as I placed myself in the shoes of Ann’s parents, but especially her mother.  Especially her […]
