Overview

Joy comes from God . . . and it can be yours! Today.

Everyone knows how to be joyful in the peaks of life. But what about the valleys? When nothing seems to go your way? When everything is falling apart? When God is silent, and you feel all alone? Where does joy fit into those moments?

Designed to be experienced with the Choose Joy DVD, this guide is filled with provocative questions and discussion starters that will put you on the path to true, lasting joy no matter what you're going through. Kay Warren shares that joy is deeper than happiness, lasts longer than excitement, and is more satisfying than pleasure and thrills. Joy is richer. Fuller. And it's far more accessible than you've thought.

Kay Warren cofounded Saddleback Church with her husband Rick Warren in Lake Forest, California. She is a passionate Bible teacher and the author of Say Yes to God. Learn more at www.kaywarren.com and follow her on Facebook (Kay Warren) and Twitter (@KayWarren1).

    Highly recommended!

    This is a book for women, but I read it because Kay Warren wrote it, and knowing of her medical struggles, I was interested how she would approach choosing joy. I was not disapointed. The content can be applied to men as well, but most of the trials and challenges are applicatble to women and their lifestyles. One thing Kay brought out is that we all have heartache at one time or another, but it is the choice we make to allow our circumstance dominate or whether we trust God and move forward. We must prioritize and determine where we will spend our energy, either feeling sorry for ourselves or shaking the dust off and moving forward with God's help. We still have the responsibility to act and do, but God cares for our lives and will help us THROUGH our trials, not skirt AROUND them. I gain much strength from her book and I recommend it to everyone.
