THE CROSS IN THE CLOTHESPIN: ANN VOSKAMP

By April 16, 2017 7 Comments

She’s Ann Voskamp, a plain Ann without even the fanciful “e”, wife to The Farmer, mama to six, and in her own words, “a bit of a mess.”

Ann was named by Christianity Today as one of the leading fifty women who are shaping culture and the Church today. She’s a New York Times best-selling author many times over, communicator, story teller and advocate for those without a voice.


“The only words that really matter are the ones I live.

This convicts me. I keep writing it out here everyday, the words I am seeking to live — about this wondrously messy, everyday-holy life….

about finding the beauty and quiet,

about slowing to see the sacred in the chaos,

and the Cross in the clothespin.”

    Wonderful, I wonder how many of these encouragements can we relate to at one time in our lives.
    I think it is all for me at one time or another.
    Mine is FAITH THANKS GOD IN THE MIDDLE Of THE STORY.

    Beautiful, encouraging words.

  • Jennifer says:

    My favourite is that not that our loving changes is but that in loving we change. It is in her amazing book, The Broken Way and very much worth the read.

  • Margaret says:

    In agreement with Jennifer, liking the same quote.
