40 Days to a Joy-Filled Life by Tommy Newberry

I liked this book very much.  It is perfect for a busy person who is looking for a easy way to do a daily devotional exercise.  I like the way that all of the writing exercises can be done right in the book without having an extra journal to keep track of.  The chapters are short, easy to understand, and encourage readers to make small changes that will impact their outlook on life.

I especially liked the little post-it type note with the thought of the day.  I copied it down and posted it and found that it helped me to remember what I was working on each day.

I think this is one of the most user friendly books I’ve used in a long time.  Very simple to do, but with valuable lessons in the pages.  However, it is not a miracle book and you will get out of it what you put in.  Also, it is not a substitute for regular time reading the Bible.

The message of the entire book is to look for and strive for joy.  Does this guarantee that life will be chocolate and roses all the time?  No, but Newberry’s book can help readers reframe their thinking into seeking the joy in every circumstance, by giving us chances to practice it.

I recommend this book to anyone looking for a morning reflection type of book to get the day off to a positive start!
