Review

"In Sheila's book, you can almost hear God's laughter and see his smile in the pages. . . she has captured the joy principle, and her insights will be helpful to readers as they read, in plain language, how we can all seek out joy." -- Barbara Johnson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Publisher

Sheila Walsh invites Women of Faith to reclaim the joy One of the distinctives of the Christian faith is joy--an abiding, overflowing gladness of heart that wells up from within. Joy that exists independent of circumstances, rejoicing in the best of times and triumphing in the worst. We all know this. We've memorized the Scripture verse that says the joy of the Lord is our strength. But, if we're honest, many of us will admit that our own experience of joy is a far cry from what the Bible seems to promise. Have we missed something? Where did the joy go--and more important, how can we get it back? Sheila Walsh knows the importance of joy. Her own difficulties ultimately became a journey to the kind of joy that can't be withered by life's dry seasons or overturned by circumstances--because it's rooted in Christ himself. In Bring Back the Joy, Sheila calls us to a deeper joy. With wisdom, she exposes the the negative forces designed to steal our joy--sin, law, fear, anger, unforgiveness, hopelessness, loss of vision, and shame. And she shows how to sow life-changing seeds of joy--through obedience, transparency, friendship, grace, simplicity, risk, surrender, and learning to simply lighten up! Capturing the theme of the 1998 Women of FaithSM conferences, Bring Back the Joy is a warm, encouraging, and richly personal invitation to experience the joy that comes from loving and being loved by the Most Important Person in the Universe.

Format: Hardcover
Sheila Walsh has done it again! I thought "Life is Tough but God is Faithful" was too wonderful to top, but "Bring Back the Joy" has possibly surpassed it and has truly shown me how to do JUST THAT! Her honest and real style allows the reader to relate to her in a way that she becomes like a dear friend. With this level of comfortability established, the reader is able to see clearly and learn how to dispel religeous myths, take inventory of personal and spiritual baggage, and apply God's truth, healing and love to their lives. By breaking the mold of the model Christian, Shiela has reinforced to me that: 1. God loves me for who I am, not what I do for Him. 2. It is okay to be "me". 3. Only through God's loving encouragement and my own acceptance of myself, can I be changed and strengthened to be the Christian woman that God desires me to be.
This book has miraculously enhanced my life A must read for all who have lost their zest for their faith and desire to "rekindle the joy in their relationship with God."

Format: Paperback
This book was an ok book, it took three evenings to finish. I thought the book was more about joy rather then JOY. By that I mean it was more about earthly things & relationships, ect. in life producing joy ~ I had hoped it would have been more about the JOY of the Lord. It is a good book for a brand new Christian or someone searching.
