Jackie Baugh Moore

After forty-six years of marriage, Ella suddenly found herself widowed and thrust into a life she did not choose. Reclaiming Joy is an account of one brave woman's ability to navigate the most difficult journey of her life and help others who are trying to do the same. It is a one-step-at-a-time guide, resource and affirmation of the hope that you can, one day, find your own joy.

Elizabeth Head Black

Ella Prichard has given us a gift in her deeply personal account of widowhood. In her new book, Reclaiming Joy, she lays the framework, through the book of Philippians, to experience God’s presence and provision in times of grief and loss.It is at once practical, honest, hopeful, and encouraging. Reclaiming Joyis a beautiful chronicle of the strength, wisdom, and maturity that comes from enduring times of loss.

George Mason

’Joy comes with the morning,’ the psalmist says, after the night of mourning. In Reclaiming Joy, Ella Wall Prichard teaches us something else that is only learned in the crucible of grief and loss. Joy that comes with the morning is only possible by seeking joy in the mourning.
