Ann Voskamp

Ann Voskamp is a farmer's wife, home-educating mama to 6 & author of the NYTimes Bestseller One Thousand Gifts. When the kids and the washing machine sleep, she washes her real dirt down with words and The Word. Some of her words find themselves in an award-winning series for curious kids, A Child's Geography, of which all profits are donated to Compassion, or places like the Huffington PostWORLD Magazine, and Christianity Today. She’s a writer for DaySpring’s (in)Courage, is a contributing editor for The High Calling, and travels and speaks on behalf of Compassion Internationaland the needy.

But the only words that matter? Are the ones she lives. This convicts her.

Ann has a background in education and psychology from York University and the University of Waterloo and clings to Cross-grace. Named one of the Top 100 Mom Blogs of 2011, this farmer’s wife blogs about the beauty and messy grace @ A Holy Experience.
