Book Review: Joy

Joy: A Godly Woman's Adornment. Lydia Brownback. 2010. Crossway Books. 104 pages.

I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this "on-the-go" devotional by Lydia Brownback. The focus of this one is JOY. And it's a much-needed book, I believe! Over forty entries on the theme of living joyously! Each entry is inspired by a particular Scripture. I noticed many Scriptures from Psalms and Philippians! As I've been reading Philippians daily--and Psalms daily--I've come to realize that joy can be transformational to our lives. We're told to REJOICE IN THE LORD ALWAYS. And these devotional entries might be a good place to start building a new habit.
