A Life of Joy is a book for every woman who's ever pursued happiness. For many women, it's been a disappointing search paved with anxiety and despair. Even Christian women struggle with feeling happy on a day to day basis. The pursuit of joy consumes our culture, yet depression and suicide rates keep rising. Something's not working! The more women understand they will never find lasting gladness in temporal circumstances, the more they will seek the Source of true pleasure. Katie Hoffman explains lasting joy can be found, but only in Christ. Though temporal joy is fleeting, joy from God is eternal, indescribable, and full of glory. With stories from her own life, the author relates to women at every stage so they might come to know happiness in Jesus that has nothing to do with how things seem to be going. With twenty-two specific Biblical ways to obtain gladness, including prayer, fellowship, generosity, holiness and knowing God's Word, and while covering many of the foundations of the Christian faith - it's a book for for gift giving, personal use, or a group Bible study. This book seeks to show women that by having hope in God and by seeking Him in obedience, they can be freed from the bondage of anxiety, depression, and frustration.
