Book Review - Joy: A Godly Woman's Adornment

"Joy: A Godly Woman's Adornment"
By Lydia Brownback
First Edition Published: 2010

Joy is one of the defining characteristics of a true follower of Christ. Lydia Brownback's book consists of 41 short devotionals filled with scripture and encouragement for finding joy in the Christian walk. Drawing mainly from the letters of Paul the book stresses the importance of thankfulness, confession of sins and casting every anxiety upon Christ.

I found the devotionals to be full of straight forward explanations of scripture passages and down to earth examples from every day life. They always continually pointed the reader back to the necessity of prayer and daily Bible reading and to the importance of trusting Christ in order to find true, lasting joy in Him.
