Joy Filled Days With One Thousand Gifts {Dayspring Gift Set Giveaway}

Working full-time from home with two preschoolers has me constantly on the go. I spend most of my days working, fingers flying across my laptop with breaks in between tasks to referee fights over toys, check on dinner in the crockpot, give hugs, switch over the laundry, and every other task that a working mom is responsible for. When I do get a few minutes to just sit, I’m always thinking about the next task on my to-do list or surveying the mess in my tv room wondering what I should pick up first. I’m reminding the boys to use indoor voices and to please keep their fingers out of their noses. In all the busyness it’s easy to miss the blessings in life if I don’t seek them out.

Ann Voskamp is a beautiful writer who wrote a book that I love called One Thousand Gifts in which she shows people how they can find joy. There is a line of gift items out that correspond with the book and I was lucky enough to receive two of them. Both items help me find joy in the littlest of things. The Inspirational Dayspring Daybrightener is a flip calendar that has a daily thought on each page. The Reflections From One Thousand Gifts book contains some of Voskamp’s photography and passages from her New York Times bestseller.

Even better than receiving them myself is the fact that Dayspring wants to bless one lucky Making Time For Mommy reader with a One Thousand Gifts set of their own! These items make beautiful gifts as well.


Tell me one thing you are thankful for in your life!

  1. I am thankful for many things; however I am thankful for my best accomplishments in my life…ever: my three wonderful boys. They are healthy and happy and I couldn’t be more proud. In a world where you hear of so much sadness and hurt, these boys bring joy and so much happiness to my world. I just wouldn’t be the same without them.

  2. I am thankful for a loving Savior who gave Himself willingly to die on the cross and take upon Himself God’s wrath for my sin and any who believe in Him.

  3. I’m thankful for life itself. I’ve been through many health issues, including cancer and yet I’m still here. Life is such a gift. Since my cancer I’ve seen my daughter get married and a beautiful grandson born. I’m also thankful that the family lives close together so I get to play with him often. I’ve been so blessed… I could go on and on! janmessali (at) gmail (dot) com
