Barbara Johnson's approach to life is positive, uplifting, theraputic, and fun. But Barbara is far from being a cockeyed optimist, blind to life's grief and disappointment. In fact, her entire ministry of joy and encouragement began in the "slimy cesspool" of her own pain. And that's why her laughter is so infectious and her wisdom rings so true in this joy-giving book, which offers giggles and guidance to help you:
shore up sinking self-esteem reach the other side of your grief weather your stress and get rid of your guilt restore the joys of motherhood sustain an effective prayer life make peace with aging and go for healthy maturity
"Almost everyone needs a splash of joy to get through the mess, to get cleaned off and get sweetened up, refreshed and ready to go again," Barbara Johnson says. With short chapters intended to be read in one sitting-plus a collection of quips and quotes at the close of each chapter-Splashes of Joy offers invigorating encouragment and a gentle reminder to spread joy into the lives of others as well. Splashes of Joy in the Cesspools of Life is now available in value-priced paperback as part of the "Nelson Values" program -- a one-time-only, one-order-only bargain price ($7.97) on some of our best-selling and most exciting titles!
