Review

"What Tommy has captured so beautifully in 40 Days to a Joy-Filled Life is how Philippians 4:8 serves to get joyless, critical thinking under control. This book reminds us all that we have a choice when it comes to our thought life and that right choices generate right attitudes. Prepare to be challenged! If you want revolutionary thinking, then read this book!"
-JANET PARSHALL, Nationally syndicated talk show host

"Tommy Newberry's book 40 Days to a Joy-Filled Life is a surefire primer for finding authentic joy in the center of God's will. And thank the Lord, Tommy is honoring God by writing books like this one."
-DON PIPER, New York Times bestselling author of 90 Minutes in Heaven

"The 4:8 Principle is one of only a small handful of books that have deeply influenced me over the last decade. I have shared it with many friends and thousands of youth leaders across the country. In 40 Days to a Joy-Filled Life, Tommy Newberry amplifies his call for joy and shows us, step by step, how to activate 4:8 throughout our lives. Read this book and spread the joy!"
-DR. JEANNE MAYO, President of Youth Leader's Coach; youth communicator; author

"If we desire more joy, then we need to line up our thinking with the apostle Paul's advice in Philippians 4:8. Tommy coaches us to put this powerful principle into practice! With 40 Days to a Joy-Filled Life, you'll be inspired to leave your comfort zone behind and start living in the joy zone."
-BRYANT WRIGHT, Senior pastor of Johnson Ferry Baptist Church; president of the Southern Baptist Convention

Format: Paperback
How badly do you want to change your life?

During my "past life" in direct sales, I read countless self-help books. But I can tell you, reading a book is not going to change your life. Only YOU can do that, of course with God's help. My point to my prelude is this: Change takes effort, focus, a ton of hard work and a lot of prayer.

So, if you are ready for some work, this book is a good start. In addition to the 40 daily life lessons and prayers, there is homework. This is where you can truly engage and really make some progress...or check out. The amount of effort you put into this will directly effect the reward. I found that most lessons and their homework took only about 10-20 minutes, and remembering the Thought of the Day helped to reinforce the earlier lesson.

All in all, I do believe that our thoughts can determine our outcomes and that God created us to be powerful, purposeful, and positive people. And just like anything else, our dreams and attitudes need some exercise from time to time. This book is a good workout.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I was provided with a free copy of this book by Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion.

Format: Paperback
This is a daily devotional based on the author's book, The 4:8 Principle: The Secret to a Joy-Filled Life (based on Philippians 4:8 in the Bible). The idea is to transform thoughts from negative to positive as the apostle Paul encourages believers to do in that verse.

I'm not naturally a "Pollyanna" type personality and confess that books like this tend to irritate me more than encourage me but I was pleasantly surprised as I read this one. The approach isn't a chirpy rah-rah speech every day (thank you, Mr. Newberry!) but rather takes a realistic approach to helping the reader discover a way to think more positively in specific circumstances while acknowledging that it doesn't come easily for most of us. I appreciated the "think this, not that" approach with suggestions I could comfortably embrace; things like thinking compassionate thoughts rather than harsh ones, bold instead of comfortable, serving instead of self-centered, victory instead of defeat, etc.

Each day offers a 2-3 page reading on a specific topic, followed by an application exercise, thought for the day, and a prayer. One reading that I especially appreciated was on Day 8: Stop Identity Theft. This devotional dealt with seeing ourselves in the positive light and truth of scripture and what God says about us rather than being defined by worldly influences. Other topics include Take a Vacation From Yourself, The Gift of the Present, Feeling vs. Fact, Harboring Gratitude, Whatever Your Hands Find to Do, to name a few.

I do like this devotional and look forward to continuing my journey through it. With Christmas coming up, this would be a great gift to give to friends and family.

I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher as part of their blog review program but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required.

Great practical ways to apply God's principles of joy in our lives! If you read this book and do these exercises, you will train your mind to have the joy God wants you to have.
I loved the 4:8 Principle and it changed me in so many positive ways. I learned that my feelings always follow my thoughts, and I am in charge of what thoughts I dwell on. As I taught the book, I realized that some people who do bewtter with "hands on" learning had some difficulty making it stick. This book is perfect for them and anyone else who did not have the opportunity to read the first one. *****Awesome book!!!

Format: Paperback
This book is filled with excellent encouragement and practical application. It is more than a "how to book for joy". It is a transformational tool for actually experinceing a joy-filled life. I found that simply taking the time to do the application excercises st the end of each day's reading (the "drills") proved to be a significant tool in a visible increase in my own personal joy level. This book delivers as promised and to take a phrase from one of Tommy Newberry's previous books, it proves "joy is not an accident"!
