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.

Just like you, Ann Voskamp hungers to live her one life well. Forget the bucket lists that have us escaping our everyday lives for exotic experiences. “How,” Ann wondered, “do we find joy in the midst of deadlines, debt, drama, and daily duties? What does the Christ-life really look like when your days are gritty, long—and sometimes even dark? How is God even here?”In One Thousand Gifts, Ann invites you to embrace everyday blessings and embark on the transformative spiritual discipline of chronicling God's gifts. It’s only in this expressing of gratitude for the life we already have, we discover the life we've always wanted ... a life we can take, give thanks for, and break for others. We come to feel and know the impossible right down in our bones: we are wildly loved — by God. Let Ann's beautiful, heart-aching stories of the everyday give you a way of seeing that opens your eyes to ordinary amazing grace, a way of being present to God that makes you deeply happy, and a way of living that is finally fully alive. Come live the best dare of all!

The Gift of Betrayal You've been betrayed by a loved one! What you counted on to be true is false. Betrayal may very well be the cruelest and most painful relationship challenge you'll ever face ... but you're not alone. According to conservative estimates, 40 percent of women and 60 percent of men have betrayed their significant other. But statistics don't help you feel any better. You're a woman who knows what it feels like to be betrayed, to have your life shattered, to see your dreams go up in smoke. You are alone, abandoned, at risk, hopeless, and overwhelmed. You don't know who you are anymore, what's real, or whom you can trust. While you surely can't see the gift in your betrayal, it is there! What feels like a curse is really a blessing in disguise. Eve A. Wood, M.D., ought to know. She's been there herself. And she's helped hundreds of other women heal their lives after gut-wrenching betrayals. You, too, can climb out of your pit of despair and live your heart's desire - but you need to know how to do it. How will you heal your life when your world explodes? You do have a choice: you can be a victim ... or use this experience as an opportunity to create the life you've always wanted. With The Gift of Betrayal, Dr. Wood has written the book she wishes she'd been able to read many years ago. Her patients, and her own life journey, have taught her the 14 key lessons necessary to heal your life when your world explodes. And now she's sharing them with you. Read other women's stories. Learn from your own history. And then use the guidance, tools, and suggestions Dr. Wood offers to find your own unique path to wholeness and joy. You can create a glorious future!

This book brings together two traditions of thinking about social ties: sociological theory on sol idarity and anthropological theory on gift exchange. The purpose of the book is to explore how both theoretical traditions may complete and enrich each other, and how they may illuminate transformations in solidarity. The main argument, supported by empirical illustrations, is that a theory of solidarity should incorporate some of the core insights from anthropological gift theory. The book presents a theoretical model covering both positive and negative--selective and excluding--aspects and consequences of solidarity.

In this moving and compassionate classic—now updated with new material from the authors—hospice nurses Maggie Callanan and Patricia Kelley share their intimate experiences with patients at the end of life, drawn from more than twenty years’ experience tending the terminally ill. Through their stories we come to appreciate the near-miraculous ways in which the dying communicate their needs, reveal their feelings, and even choreograph their own final moments; we also discover the gifts—of wisdom, faith, and love—that the dying leave for the living to share. Filled with practical advice on responding to the requests of the dying and helping them prepare emotionally and spiritually for death, Final Gifts shows how we can help the dying person live fully to the very end.
