Connect to something greater than yourself, find peace and security, and learn to be content in all circumstances with a faith-based blog like A Holy Experience. Written by Ann Voskamp, this blog is full of lyrical writing and a frank way of talking about hard things. Ann Voskamp’s book One Thousand Gifts was a runaway success that detailed her journey from discontentment to joy, gratitude, and freedom. Her writing talks honestly about the painful details of life while her writing can be beautifully described as a form of poetry that pulls the reader along. Get a daily taste of the freedom she found with every beautiful post. If you like, read her book as well and follow along her journey with your own. Perhaps you will find the joy she talks about, too.
