From the Author

Chariss K Walker, D.Div., has something more important to offer than credentials. Although she has certainly earned her degrees, she also has over thirty years of self-help study and reading, working with others in groups and one-on-one, and teaching. Her true qualifications come from what matters more: life experiences, true insight, and helping others.

More About the Author

Award winning author, Chariss K Walker, M. Msc, writes nonfiction and fiction books with a message. Her nonfiction books share what she's learned after 30+ years of study in a quest to understand religious and metaphysical concepts and ideas. Chariss has something more to offer than educational degrees--her real qualifications come from life experiences, true insight, and helping others. Her books are inspirational and motivational help for those seeking more spiritual understanding and who question their personal worldview.
Chariss also writes fiction; novels that include thriller/suspense, drama/suspense, and paranormal mystery. It's safe to say that her writings appeal to those who enjoy the ride of descriptive narration. Although her books are filled with plenty of action and suspense, they also offer a slice-of-life into the lives of characters and cover esoteric depictions and material that evokes thoughtful contemplation about the human condition. We all face these same struggles in life: love, hate, betrayal, forgiveness, death, loss and so much more. Her characters are often more mature and seasoned by an expansive life and unlimited by geographical or ideological bias. Chariss lives in Amarillo, Texas.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Rebecca of Amazon HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on July 14, 2008
Format: Paperback
"What you desire to receive is the very thing you should give away." ~ pg. 111

"Make a Joyful Noise" is an intriguing book that will be appreciated by seekers looking for ways to live a more spiritual life. Chariss K. Walker has studied sacred texts for over thirty years and she presents biblical references to back up all her wonderful insights. She believes that we are divine beings of light having an earthly experience.

On this earth journey there is much to learn and many spiritual laws to take into consideration. Chariss K. Walker presents laws that deal with oneness, vibration, attraction, polarity, action, rhythm, cause and effect, asking and receiving, increase, compensation, transmutation, relativity, reciprocation and forgiveness.

The last third of the book is even more interesting with topics as diverse as dream interpretation and auras. After reading how to see my aura's color I was able to see a light green aura around my fingertips. This section of the book also explores prayer, meditation, praise, thanksgiving, visualizations, miracles and angels.

What I liked most about this book is the way it is written. While reading it is as if you are having a conversation with a trusted friend or advisor. In each chapter you may also discover something about yourself. What are your motivations when you make a request in prayer? I had never thought about the motivation behind the request but now that I understand how to pray more effectively I will definitely use the new information to see my prayers answered in new ways. There is also a great discussion about how your spoken words and thoughts can powerfully affect your life for the better. Your thoughts literally become your reality.

Format: Paperback
An American Authors Association Review:

This is an eclectic collection of thoughts and quotations from the Bible and other sources including various religions. For me, this is the type of book that I like to have on hand to read at different times, especially when I need something to lift my spirits. I believe the author intended Make A Joyful Noise to be a life-changing guide.

The author has organized the book into three sections: Understanding Spiritual Laws, The Spiritual Laws, and Putting Spiritual Laws into Practice. In each section are topics that touch on understanding and ways to make changes in ourselves and our lives.

To help the reader understand individual topics the author has included anecdotes from real-life incidents. Each chapter heading is graced with an appropriate illustration.

Though the reader may not agree with all the concepts presented, the book is wonderfully organized and written, with new and old thoughts about all the things each of us faces in our day-to-day lives.
Highly recommended.

With so many ancient manuscripts, some of which contradict, how can one really understand what God wants? "Make a Joyful Noise: Searching for a Spiritual Path in a Material World A Book of Hope" seeks to explain the will of God seeks to explain the spiritual laws to help readers come up with their own ideas about what God wants and to find their own happiness through these methods. A fresh message of spirituality, "Make a Joyful Noise" is definitely worth a read.
