Eyes Wide Open Jan 29, 2005
Diane Eble's book delves into the issue of the gifts of God in a wonderful way. The main premise of the book is that there are gifts in all events in our lives, even (or maybe particularly) in the difficult times; we just need to open our eyes to see them.
Eble's message is based on her collection of stories from her own life as well as the lives of others. Each day presents a different story and a discussion of the gift the narrator discovered as a result.
I picked up this book in a bookstore at a particularly hard time in my life, when I needed spiritual support. In the dark days I experienced, Abundant Gifts was a ray of light shining through, helping me to think, "What gift is God giving me today?" It helped open my eyes to the reality of a God who cares about me in the little details of my life and who wants me to see and delight in His blessings.
Abundant Gifts was a blessing in my life. Thank you, Diane Eble!
How God touches our lives in so many ways. Dec 19, 2004
So many of these stories touched my heart. I hated to have the book come to an end. I plan to reread it again as the new year starts. It is hard not to read the whole book in one sitting, but it is set up as a daily devotional and I savored it by reading just one story a day. I also believe, as the author shows in some of the stories, that God has a sense of humor. I have given several copies as gifts.
Nuggets of wisdom that unwrap God's miraculous gifts Dec 6, 2004
Rarely has a book roused in me so many profound revelations as has Diane Eble's "Abundant Gifts." The real-life stories contained in her book are exquisite nuggets of wisdom that unwrap God's miraculous gifts to anyone who's willing to open their eyes to find them. I can't even count the number of times I've read some of these stories aloud to friends who needed the right words spoken in due season.
As you turn the pages of her book, read the words slowly -- and savor the rich morsels as you would a meal so extraordinarily tasty you hope it never ends. There are 5 stories to be read each week -- one for every weekday -- but they're so irresistible you'll be tempted to read all the stories in one sitting. This book has changed my life so much that I've given it as a gift to more people than any other book I've encountered.
You'll be tempted to read this book straight through Oct 18, 2004
Diane Eble has such a wonderful way with words. Besides being beautifully designed (in either edition) this book overflows with well-written, touching and timely devotions. Abundant Gifts truly is a gift!

Abundant Gifts: A Daybook of Grace-Filled Devotions May 23, 2000
This book discusses the abundant gifts that God has in store for us each and every day. The author not only urges us to discover these gifts in our own lives, but also shows many examples in these devotions. By living in an expectant fashion, we discover and are amazed at what God does to personally affect our lives. I would recommend this book for all who believe in God. Busy people who would like to take the time for a short devotion will appreciate how quickly it reads -- but the message of each devotion will touch hearts.
