Overview

Live Your Joy by Bonnie St. John

Joy is something that comes from the inside out. It feels like a flowing grace, a feeling of goodness all around, a sense of well-being through good and bad. It is love, gratitude, faith and empowerment all wrapped together. Joy deepens our experiences. It opens us to seeing a more beautiful sunset, appreciating rather than fault finding, to believing in oneself.

Here are some of the things Bonnie St. John has learned about finding joy...



  • Discover the power of your own dreams and personal vision.
  • Each day make the choice of joy over bitterness.
  • Strengthen you self-confidence...shape yourself, don't let others shape you
  • Clarify what matters most to you
  • Allow spontaneous, surprising gifts of joy to redirect your schedule.
  • Partner with God...the entire power of the universe is on our side.
  • Become more helping, more healing and more accepting .
None of this is easy and Bonnie admits that she's not able to live her joy every minute of every day. But she does so now more often than she used to. And, more often than she used to, she feels love from others, feels compassion in painful situations, and lives more fully and joyfully.

Live Your Joy Bonnie St. John FaithWords, April 2009 $19.99 US, ISBN 0446579254 Rating: 3 Joyful, joyful. As humans, we often mistake happiness for joy. Happiness is fleeting, but joy, real joy, is everlasting and there is no other feeling like it. In Live Your Joy, Bonnie St. John encourages readers to examine themselves and their lives to determine what brings them joy and to recognize those things that have the capability of stealing that joy. Bonnie St. John, a national motivational speaker, has lived a life most of us can only dream about. But she has also suffered in a way that many of us will never experience - she lost one of her legs at a very young age. Suffering such a fate would make even the strongest person want to throw in the towel and give up achieving major things in life. But not Bonnie! She turned her tragedy into triumph and despite the many obstacles she faced, she went on to achieve much success. While reading Live Your Joy, I felt as if I were reading the author's autobiography and not really the instructional, yet inspirational, guide that I expected. St. John's life story is inspiring, and I am in awe of her accomplishments. The majority of the stories in this new book were familiar to me, thanks to her previous release, How Strong Women Pray. However, there were moments throughout this book that caused me to pause and reflect on various aspects of my own life -- both the joyful and the instances where I allowed my joy to be stolen. I was also persuaded to take steps to finally and fully experience the joy given to me. However, there were moments throughout the book that caused me to pause and reflect on certain aspects of my own life; both the joyful and the instances where I allowed my joy to be stolen. My heart was also pricked and I was prompted to take steps to finally and fully experience the joy given to me. Whether young or old, male or female, readers who take pleasure in reading uplifting, autobiographical stories will want to add this book to their collection. ~~Renee Williams, a freelance reviewer at All the Buzz, is the CEO of Literary Signature Services, an event planning business specializing in literary gifts and events for authors, as well as the promotional assistant for TheGRITS.com
