The author of How Strong Women Pray reveals the habits and behaviors that lead to lasting joy in life, including making the daily choice of happiness over bitterness, not allowing others to shape you, clarifying what matters most to you, and partnering with God.
Joy is something that comes from the inside out. It feels like a flowing grace, a feeling of goodness all around, a sense of well-being through good and bad. It is love, gratitude, faith and empowerment all wrapped together. Joy deepens our experiences. It opens us to seeing a more beautiful sunset, appreciating rather than fault finding, to believing in oneself.
Here are some of the things Bonnie St. John has learned about finding joy...
None of this is easy and Bonnie admits that she's not able to live her joy every minute of every day. But she does so now more often than she used to. And, more often than she used to, she feels love from others, feels compassion in painful situations, and lives more fully and joyfully.

|LEARN TO LIVE YOUR JOY Aug 31, 2009|
|Bonnie says, "Joy, comes from the inside out. It feels like a flowing grace that pours out from me into the world. It is a feeling of goodness, a sense of well-being through thick and thin. It is hope, confidence, friendship, positivity, and faith all wrapped into one."|
Bonnie has done amazing things in her life, which many of us only dream of. She as won a silver and bronze Olympic medal for ski racing in the 1984 Paralympics, she has an honors degree from Harvard University, received a Rhodes Scholarship to Oxford University, was appointed to the White House National Economic Council for 4 years and was quoted on millions of Starbucks cups, "....Gold medal winners just get up faster."
Bonnie has had challenges to over come personally and physically. She truly is an inspiration and fascinating to read about. She isn't perfect and struggles daily, like the rest of us, but she makes a conscious choice to "live her joy." And not let it pass her by.
Inside these pages are candid stories from her life, where she has made the choice to live her joy no matter what. She says, "Setbacks aren't always the worst things that can happen to us. To the contrary, we often have to take a step back in order to take a step forward. .. If we always try to bend the world around how we think things should be, we'll never get ahead. We need to realize that flexibility is one of our most important assets...sometimes setbacks are really a gift." Amen to that Bonnie!!
I hadn't heard of Bonnie before reading this book. Now I want to know more about this amazingly gifted woman whose heart is after God and loves sharing the gift of joy with whoever is put in her path. I know that I've got a lot to learn from this special lady. She's very encouraging, practical and definitely someone I'd like to meet.

|Inspiring Message - Real World Advice Apr 25, 2009|
|Bonnie St. John has not had the "perfect life," which is why her message of "Live Your Joy" is not only inspiring, but also believable and attainable. Bonnie gives us a banquet of real-world advice based on her own experience as well as that of others. There's plenty of inspiration with a practical approach. As Bonnie shows us, we can have joy--right here and right now--no matter what's going right or wrong in our lives. Joy is within us and around us, and ours for the asking. Thank you, Bonnie, for the wisdom! |
