“…. So many writers of faith do not do the hard work of literary incarnation: expressing spiritual truth in the material world of daily life.

Ann Voskamp does this brilliantly.”

~ Philip Yancey, New York Times Best-selling author

“Ann Voskamp is truly one of the most gifted writers I have ever read.

If you want a book that will challenge you and mess with you in the most beautiful of ways, this is it.

And you won’t just read it and put it away. You will return to this treasure for years to come.”

~ Lysa Terkeurst, New York Times Bestselling author,  President of Proverbs 31 Ministries

“….A voice that is a fresh wind.

~Patsy Clairmont, author and speaker with Women of Faith

“ …lilting prose… biblical thanksgiving…. it’s a pleasure to turn to a remarkably gifted writer Amen.

~Marvin Olasky, editor in chief of WORLD Magazine

“Men, please don’t shy away from this book because the cover appears a bit feminine.

This is not a chick book by any means. Ann Voskamp raises questions that every human being is asking. She tackles issues that we all struggle with. And she writes about life in a way that’ll draw you in and keep you riveted to every word.

This is simply the most well written book I’ve read in a long time.”

~ author Rory Noland, author and a pastor at James McDonald’s Harvest Bible Chapel

This is Mere Christianity from a woman’s perspective.

~Lisa-Jo Baker, social media manager for DaySpring

“… exquisite…. Prepare yourself to leave these pages a changed person… this tremendous book… will be recognized as a classic work of art.”

Angie Smith, speaker withWomen of Faith
