Choose Joy Bible Study Begins Next Week

By July 26, 2012Choose Joy

Next week we begin the Choose Joy online Bible study, based on the book by Kay Warren. I hope you have your books or ebooks so you’re ready to join us on Monday. We’ll have an official launch of the study and begin reading chapters one through three on July 30, then have a group discussion the following week. We have more than 400+ women from around the world participating in this online Bible study. To register for this online Bible study or find book resources- click here.

About the Author

Kay Warren, cofounder of Saddleback Church with her husband, Rick, is an international speaker, best-selling author and Bible teacher who has a passion for inspiring and motivating others to make a difference with their lives. Kay is author of several books including her newest Choose Joy: Because Happiness Isn’t Enough (Revell, April 2012), which was adapted from a Bible study she first taught at Saddleback Church in July 2011, drawing more than 5,000 women for the four-week sessions. In the book, Kay describes how painful experiences – two bouts of cancer, watching as life-threatening illnesses attacked her children and grandchildren and living with mild depression most of her life – have shaped her conviction that joy is a choice and within the reach of every person, no matter how desperate or dark circumstances may be.

About the Leader

My name is Marie Wikle and I’ll be leading this online Bible study here at the Womens Bible Cafe™.  My passion is seeing through the eyes of compassion and understanding the heart that desires to have an impact. Through my non-profit Spreading Joy and my book Spreading Joy Daily I have encouraged others to see the full potential of the everyday, ordinary resources that are right within their reach. Everyone needs to make a difference and with creative thinking and a unique look at the ordinary, and my goal is to show people all over the world just how easy it is to make a difference. Every act of joy that you do, regardless of the size, has the potential to have a limitless ripple effect. You never know where your act of joy will end up.  You, the giver, are splashed with joy as you make a difference! Find me on Twitter @SpreadingJoy for daily updates and nuggets of Joy.

May your heart splash in JOY as you give and see that “There’s no joy like Spreading Joy”
