The Way of Abundance: A 60-Day Journey into a Deeply Meaningful Life by Ann Voskamp
I think this book was written specifically for me… Ann takes a topic that is often times pushed under the rug in the Christian community: GRIEF & DISSAPOINTMENT. The typical response when asking how someone is doing is, “ Blessed and Highly Favored”. While we are a blessed people, the bible never promises that we would be without struggle – trial or persecution. Ann gives examples on good ways to cope with grief with anecdotal and biblical examples.
What do you do when you wake up and feel like you're not enough for your life? Or when you look out the kitchen window as dusk falls and wonder how do you live when life keeps breaking your heart?
In sixty vulnerably soulful stories, The Way of Abundance moves from self-weary brokenness to Christ-focused givenness. Drawing from the critically acclaimed, New York Times bestseller The Broken Way and Ann's online essays, this devotional dares us to embrace brokenness as a gift that moves us to givenness as a way to draw closer to the heart of God. Christ Himself broke like bread, giving Himself to us so we might have a lifelong communion with Him. Could it be that our brokenness is also a gift to the world?
