Oh Da Joy: A Conversation in the Art of Joyful Living
Joy is hoped for, wished for, sought for, prayed for, fought for. It is missing, wanted, needed. It is also attainable. It is not an elusive dream or a someday; it can be now.
Oh Da Joy is a series of short life lessons in living joyfully. They are lessons learned from heart-rending loss and laugh-out-loud moments.
This is a conversation, not a thesis or research. It is a discussion from the heart. For in the end, it is with the reader’s heart that they will find the way to live joyfully. This is for those who want to grow in joy and for those whose smiles cannot really hide their pain and sorrow as they start the journey toward a life of joy and peace.
Let’s share and uncover new Joy together.
