What is joy?

Ask ten different people and you'll get ten different answers.

Yet if you asked:

• a man who grew up fatherless and destitute in the slums of Atlanta

• a young widow who decided to bring a neglected garden back to life in spite of agonizing physical pain and a deeply wounded spirit

• or author Dan Lord himself, ex-frontman

Overview

What is joy?

Ask ten different people and you'll get ten different answers.

Yet if you asked:

• a man who grew up fatherless and destitute in the slums of Atlanta

• a young widow who decided to bring a neglected garden back to life in spite of agonizing physical pain and a deeply wounded spirit

• or author Dan Lord himself, ex-frontman for a popular indie rock band

each would point to the one source of their joy: Jesus.

They made the choice for joy, against all odds, and so can you, though the obstacles might seem insurmountable. Worry and anxiety, pain and suffering, the daily grind-all these and more can block your path. When faced with such challenges, is it possible to get past the barriers, let go, and experience God's joy?

When you look around, you might wonder - although joy is a fruit of the Spirit, it doesn't seem to be hanging visibly from many Christian boughs. Choosing Joy aims to change that - and change your life in the process - as it helps you discover the key to this most attractive but seemingly elusive gift.

Choosing Joy will help you overcome the obstacles and focus your heart, mind, and strength on God so that you can receive the happiness and peace that the world cannot give.
