12 Quotes from The Broken Way, by Ann Voskamp

I read Ann Voskamp’s first book – One Thousand Gifts – way back in 2012. I remember not only being mesmerized by it as I read it, but carrying it in my heart months and years after. It was an inspiring book about giving thanks and finding the true and the excellent in the small moments of life.

That same winter when I read the book, I started experimenting with design, playing with blocks of color and text. Ann’s writing inspired me, so I made a few simple graphics with my favorite quotes.

The post, including the graphics is still here: Ann Voskamp Quotes.

I might cringe at my design choices looking back, but the truthfulness and beauty of her words still stand, because they point to the Truth – Jesus.

This winter, I just finished Ann’s latest book: The Broken Way. Once again, her writing and deep faith inspired me. To live a life of gratitude and giving, and to put some of my favorite quotes into graphics I can share with you.

I hope they stir the same desire in you, to pour out your life at the feet of Christ, by pouring it out into others.

  1. As fresh and life-giving to the eye are the designs you’ve made, such are the quotes. They’re also piercing the soul very strongly. Thank you for sharing these and for making the quotes even more “speaking” by the work you’ve put in. (Putina put in some work ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). You should send these to Ann, she should be stocked for these )

    1. you’re too funny, girlie! Loving how you’ve put in that pun ๐Ÿ˜€
      Yes – she does have a way with pointing out truths that pierce the soul. As I read the book, and I remember having the same experience with One Thousand Gifts, I thought: wow, this is a truth that I knew deep down in my soul and it has gathered some dust, and she brings it out in the open, dusts it off and lets it shine. She also has ways to apply these truths to real life, which to me is the best part.
