Fight Back with Joy

I just finished reading Fight Back with Joy  by Margaret Feinberg. My husband brought this book home from the Catalyst conference back in October and I have read it slowly because it was a tough read. 

  
Margaret is a Christian author who wrote this book about her battle with cancer. It is about her struggles through the fight but how she continually tried to find joy along the way. 

Here are some of my favorite quotes from the book:

  • God is an unconventional teacher. 
  • Practicing defiant joy is the declaration that the darkness does not and will not win. When we fight back with joy, we embrace a reality that is more real than what we’re enduring and we awaken to the deepest reality of our identity as beloved, joyful children of God. 
  • Jesus arrives in joy, departs in joy, and calls us to great joy through fellowship with him. 

If you have ever walked through a tough time, or maybe your in one right now, this book will give you a new perspective. Today I will find joy, despite what my situation. 

Song Series: Trust In You

Finding New Authors

A few years ago I found the author Rachel Hauck. I love the way she writes and the stories she tells. I have read almost everything that she has written (money becomes an issue when you can read a full book of hers in one day). When I was approaching the end of my reading list of books by her I knew it was time to broaden my horizons. But before that I found one more book by Ms.Hauck, A March Bride. I purchased the book that night on my kindle and realized that it was a part of a series. The entire series however was not by Rachel Hauck. The series is called A Year of Wedding Novellas and includes 12 books by 12 different authors. All of these authors have a similar writing style to Rachel’s and the same ideals (good, clean, Christian inspired romance). So from this series I have discovered 11 new authors that I like to read. I am not hooked to any of them the way I am Rachel (it’s a money thing, I assure you), BUT I am pleased to have new authors and books that I am reading. Check out these authors if you have liked Rachel Hauck or any other good, clean Christian inspired romance novels.
