It really will help! May 5 2008
By StepbyStep - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Be prepared to find the path to joy when you open this book! The Author has taken time to include scripture after scripture, from the Bible, with commentary and examples that will soothe your wounded places. With continued study, I believe it could change the way many see their lives and infect them with "long-term" joy!

If you or anyone you know could benefit from more joy in their lives, this would be a great choice!

Great book!!! Aug. 26 2008
By Willam Carvalho - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I got this book for suggestion of a friend. While it is not the kind of book I would read, that friend told me that I would like it. And in fact I did and a lot. I do not read self-help books. And I also usually do not read bible related materials. But I took a deep breath and went for it.
Considering my remarks just made, I really liked the book. I liked for its view on a subject that bothers me a lot. I don't think that I have seen a book using the bible to spread understanding, comprehension and love. I was impressed by the views exposed in the book. If the book were in Portuguese I would certainly send a copy to my mother. She is Catholic, but as the author of the book, she does not use the bible to stimulate hatred and discrimination.
The bottom line is that I was very impressed by the book (which is very inspiring) and I am glad that I read it, even the book being a style that I usually do not visit. I also think that this book should be mandatory purchase for anybody getting a bible. If more people read the book I am quite sure the world would be a better place to live.

The Ultimate Joy June 4 2008
By L. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In today's society it is feast or famine for the soul. We have stopped smelling the flowers. This author has reached deep into her soul to share with the world what we have all been missing... fealing Ultimate Joy. I am ordering extra copies of this book for my friends and family to share the Ultimate Joy I have been missing. To have someone who completely understands why God opens and closes doors throughout our lives and to be able to take scriptures and translate them to her own real life issues is truly a gift. Then to write about them, share them, and relive them over again is purely selfless. Definately a good book for those seeking peace in their soul. Go ahead... get the book (maybe a few for friends and family) and start smelling the flowers.

This is fantastic!!! June 2 2008
By T. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a marvelous book! This is a wonderful re-introduction to the gentle, loving God of the New Testament, and, guess what? He wants us to be happy! Yes, it's true. This author proves this abundantly by her understanding of scripture--and this is nothing less than a life story of how she has lived this loving walk with Him. I am truly awed by the honesty and inspiration contained in this book. This book is interesting in that it isn't full of syrupy emptiness, rather, it is full of real, personal struggles and how the real God can help us with all we face in life. Her wisdom and honesty are wonderfully refreshing in this cynical world.

an uplifting book June 4 2008
By Lisa M. Teuchtler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I had never read a self-help book before i ordered this one, I didn't know what to expect. I had read a few pages before I realized that it was a "Jesus" book. I was dissappointed and about to put it down but I continued to read it. I am only half-way through but enjoy the reading.It is a very easy read, uplifting and thought provoking. I would recommend it to any young or mature person that is feeling a little let down about life.
