Hi, I’m Ann Voskamp, a plain Ann without even the fanciful “e”, wife to The Farmer, mama to six, and honestly, I’m a bit of a mess. It’s okay, really.
Grace is the most amazing of all.
I had a full-tuition scholarship to university and never finished.
I married a Farmer instead & came home to gravel road & cornfields.
I had babies. Half a dozen beautiful babies. My laundry basket is never empty. I lose library books. I homeschool our six exuberant kids and most days I feel just a tad bit overwhelmed and crazy.
When the kids and the washing machine sleep, I wash my real dirt down with words and The Word.
I stayed up late for too long and wrote a book, One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are. God’s put it on the New York Times bestseller’s list for something like 60 weeks now. It’s proof that God really does use broken, messed up, and fallible lives anyways.
