Book Review - "Choose Joy"

Kay Warren's "Choose Joy: Because Happiness Isn't Enough" is sure to inspire you and lift your spirits!  It is normal to feel happy at certain times of our lives, but it is so difficult to be happy at other times and at those times it is when it is so important to have joy in our lives.  Split into four main parts, this book addresses joy in our lives, whether it be how we think, how we interact with others or choosing to live joyfully in our daily lives.  Filled with Kay's personal thoughts and experiences as well as Bible verses and quotes, each chapter will leave you with much to think about and changes to make in your own life.

I loved the layout of the book as it flowed so nicely and being that it is split into well-defined sections, it is a good book to carry with you and read a section when you have a few free minutes.  My favorite page of the book is page 31 which reads, "Joy is the settled assurance that God is in control of all the details of my life, the quiet confidence that ultimately everything is going to be all right, and the determined choice to praise God in all things." This is a quote that after reading this book I am trying to live my life by.  This is a great read for anyone who would like to feel more settled in this crazy world and live more joyfully day to day!
