About I Can Choose Joy with God
When the trials of life seem too much to bear, joy can feel beyond reach. However, with words of encouragement and hope, Ganel-Lyn Condie reassures readers that joy is not only possible but also well within our grasp as we choose to turn to the Lord with our burdens. The next in the popular With God series, I Can Choose Joy with God is a powerful compilation of essays written by women of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that offers a compelling look at the struggles they faced and how they found joy even in their darkest hours. From parental concerns to financial hardships to debilitating anxiety, these personal accounts demonstrate the incomparable strength that can be harnessed through faith in a loving Heavenly Father. Though no one can avoid being tossed by the tempestuous sea of mortality, everyone can fine true joy as they hold tight to the lifeline of salvation Jesus Christ provides.
I love the way Ganel-Lyn Condie writes! Her books are full of amazing stories from people that have dealt with hard things. These people all have something good to teach the reader. I only hope that I was wise enough to have learned something from some of the stories.
The book is divided up into 5 sections, Gifts, Marriage, Health, Family and Mission. I really liked the way I learned a little bit more about Heavenly Father and my relationship to Him by reading some of these sections. I’d never thought of my life as a mission quite the way I do now after reading the section on missions.
The author includes a story of her own. I loved that! And there are a couple of these stories that are updates to some of the stories that she’s told in her other books. These things make this book even a little bit more personal.
If you like reading inspiring stories, you’ll love this one!
I was sent a copy of I Can Choose Joy with God as a gift from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
