  1. I just – like only minutes ago! – got a message from Amazon that my pre-ordered copies of this book shipped today! I had NO idea that this would be the Bloom pick and I am ecstatic to read, share, discuss, and love this book. Thank you so much for hosting and picking this book!!

  2. Oh my! I had hoped you would pick up this one!… This is a dream come true, I can’t wait for the discussions to begin!

  3. I’m glad I have a 100 page jump on you! Love reading it slowly…pondering it…letting it sink way deep down in my heart!

    Excited to chat it up!

  4. So excited! Just ordered my book and one for the Bloom sponsorship! Every word Ann writes is so beautiful…she truly lives for Jesus and for spreading His love to otehrs.

  5. I just checked on Amazon to see when I’ll have my book. I can.not wait to get it! Loved your video you 2 (3 including adorable Charlotte) are too cute!

  6. I’m in! I’ve been savoring this book since Relevant, too. Can’t wait to read it all together!

    Thanks, Jessica, Angie & Ann! 🙂

  7. Cannot drink her God-words fast enough, or slow enough, or often enough. And now to have them on paper…? No words to describe that! Looking forward to the sharing of our words about her words.

  8. I am so excited!!! I have bought the books to join in before, but have never had time to read along with the group! This one I will definitely be joining in for!

    Thanks so much for choosing such an amazing book, and I cannot wait to watch that videos with Ann in them!

    Awesome!

  9. FABULOUS!!!! I just ordered my copy & it should arrive this week! And how great that Ann herself will be sharing with all of us as well!! Looking forward to a great read & great discussions!! Thanks, ladies!!

  10. I wasn’t just clapping, I was CRYING! I am SO EXCITED about this! I was able to download it on my Kindle and read it a few weeks ago. It is TREMENDOUS! Thank you for choosing this book. I already bought a copy for a friend and we’re both very much looking forward to the discussions! God bless~

  11. I have waited *so long* for this book! Amazon just said it’s on its way, and I desperately need it this week….

  12. I’ve been waitng for this book since November 9, 2010. Actually for much longer than that just finally ordered it on that date. If I could tell you the story of what’s been going on lately you wouldn’t believe it. Well yes you would God is God afterall. I started a 30 day challenge a few months ago..GOD AWAKE MY SOUL. I was searching to come alive again. Oh, how he has been doing just that for me over this time. I’m so excited to get my book I almost can’t breathe. 🙂 This awakening is coming to a whole new level. I can feel it deep in my bones. A couple weeks ago I invited all my friends to order the book to do a book study on it. Never done anything like this before but know there are so many just like me…people who need to see that ordinary is fabulous. I’m so glad to have someone to lead me in this quest for JOY! Been searching for long. My journey can be found here-if you’ve got time.

    Thank you ANN. You are a gift from GOD!!!

  13. I have almost purchased this book about 20 times over the past few weeks, but something always happened before I hit “Order”. And then I had to put down my laptop and move onto real life. 🙂

    Today I received my daily dose of Holy Experience and saw Ann’s link to this post AND the link to the $10 price of the book on Dayspring. I clicked on it and I felt the need to buy 5 books. Partly because I wanted free shipping, but I feel this is the reason I hadn’t purchased my own copy yet. I’m excited to give these copies to friends now or maybe do a little giveaway on my blog. I literally just purchased and I feel that God made it happen this way so I would be sure to share this book with others. So excited!!!

    And Ann herself?!?!?!?!?! Could this get any better. *big silly grin*

    Thank you, ladies, from a fellow TN girl. 😉

  14. I just read the excerpt on Amazon and know that I absolutely have to read this book! I’m so glad I “tuned in.”

  15. I KNEW it! I was just thinking yesterday, they’re going to pick Ann’s book! I’m just about finished reading the manuscript version I received from Zondervan months ago (which I have highlighted and pencil-marked to death). I can’t wait to watch the videos you do for this one!

  16. Just ordered 10 copies to give out as gifts and hopefully they will all join me in reading it with this amazing group. How do I get signed up for the videos each week? Thanks again for sharing this with us!

    Blessings,
    Jill

  17. Was hoping it would be Ann’s book. Just bought it today. Tried to get more books for daughter and friends,but they only had one left. So excited about this book sharing.
    Blessings to all, Nancy

  18. I am so beyond excited about this.
    I too have been waiting for an actual book and have already ordered mine.
    Now I read that it is the book club selection? YAYYYYYYY.
    Have I mentioned how excited about this that I am?

  19. I can’t wait. I purchased this book via Kinde before Christmas and have been so blessed by it. I love Ann’s writing’s and the way she is able to write words that are so full of meaning. I’m excited to do this as a community of sisters!
    In His Grace,
    Sara

  20. As soon as I saw it was a book club announcement I hoped it would be this book! I downloaded it the day it was available, but only now am able to start reading it. Yay! Yay! for God’s perfect timing.

    My first book club project with you all 😀
