So looking forward to reading this one! Thanks for sharing the news...well, how you not share! ;-)


Congratulations. It sounds great. I'm heading over to buy one now.


Yeahhhh Joanne! Congratulations! Looks great! How exciting to see your work in print(again for you)(but first time for me to share that JOY with someone)!!! I hope I never MISPLACE GOD...but it truly looks like a GREAT READ! I'm sure we all get too busy at one time or another! Hope you do well! Let me know if I can'll have to lead me...I will mention this to a few friends that review books regularly(USA).


Love the picture and the title. Sounds like a great read.


Congratulations, how exciting!


Congratulations! I would love to do a blog interview or book review if that is an option! =) Looking forward to hearing more.


I am so proud of you!

Becky Jo

That is SOOOOOO awesome! I can't wait to read it! YAY you!!


That is soooo exciting! I'd say that was well worth the chilly breeze wrestling it inside, eh? I'd love to read it. I'm still gleaning from Living Simply!


I love the cover art!

I would love to do a review or giveaway for you. (or both!)

Congrats girl!


Wow... I can't wait to get a copy. At this time of my life I think that it will be very helpful. Congratulations!


Yay, Joanne! How exciting. I can't imagine what that feels like--to see your name on the cover of a book. Sounds like a really good read.


What a great topic. I cannot wait to read it :)


Congratulations!!!!!! How exciting. :)

YAY!!! Congratulations, friend. I know the timing for this is perfect.


Helen at A Work of Heart

There's nothing like the a bright and shiny book to bring a smile to the face and warm the heart.

Blessings and congratulations to you dear one!


I went immediately to Amazon and ordered it! I'm so excited. I'm just about finished reading your other book, Living Simply, and I am absolutely blown away by it. Thank you!!


This is wonderful!Inspiring! Motivating! Exactly why I have an award waiting for you at my blog!


Congratulations! Way to go Joanne! It looks lovely, and I know I'll be ordering a copy for my church library.

Holly B.

Hooray! So excited for you, Joanne!


I'm wishing I had read this before now so I wouldn't be offering belated congratulations.

VERY excited for you!!!

And this has absolutely nothing to do with your book, but I wanted to tell you that I am loving the powdered buttermilk in our morning muffins!


Congratulations, Joanne!!! I'm so in awe: I know an author. And I've already read one of her books. You're a multi-book author queen now! Woo Hoo. God is so good.

Megan Tietz

Congrats, Joanne!!! I am so thrilled for you. Love the cover photo - how perfect. Looks to be a great read!


Woo Hoo!!

I'm so excited for you and your new book. I am SO gonna read it! Actually, I'm in the middle of reading Living Simply right now.



AMAZING!! What a blessing.... I am so excited for you. I pray that many, many women will be encouraged and brought deeper into a relationship with Him as they read your thoughts in your new book!! So awesome.

JOYfully in Him,

Ann Berg

Oh wow, what an accomplishment...yay God! Very nice...I am very excited to read it! Congratulations to you and your family...I am sure there was some 'a givin' and a takin' on everyone's part to press on to complete this project!

And excellent work on your first class...I am so a nerd, too. Is there a legal limit to the number of sharpies, colored pencils and highlighters one can own???

For the Joy,

Wife of Rob

My copy shipped from Amazon yesterday! Yippy!!!!
