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.
