Beginning with the death of a toddler and two heartbreaking divorces, Count it all Joy follows the tender love story of a young couple as they begin a new life together. Their new start meant leaving the city with three little boys to make a home on a half-acre mini-farm, having no electricity, digging a well "by hand," and riding horseback three miles to the mailbox. When God gave them to each other for a lifetime, this young couple's desire was to live that life submitted to pleasing Him.
The fifty-two devotional readings include real-life instruction in the School of the Spirit, with God Himself teaching the lessons in healing, obedience, patience, forgiveness, and hope. They summon us to keep looking up - with our eyes fixed on Jesus - when the world around us seems to be collapsing.
This book will be read, given away, loaned and remembered because it is fresh and alive; without preachy religiosity. Count it all Joy will bring you laughter and tears and leave you with anticipation in your heart as you learn the awesome lesson that you [really can] Count it all Joy.
"I am totally fascinated with the book and have a quiet joy like someone has just told me a secret, that this book indeed is going to hit the mark and "fly."
For sixteen years I have been trying to write a book titled, Practical Parables for Pastor's Wives. I have read several, but they come across as self-righteous, door mat, pretty but not practical, fancy but not functional.
After reading Geri Cole's new book, Count it All Joy, I won't have to write that book.... SHE HAS DONE IT...and with flare, charm and a down to earth reality. - Betty Malz, author of many books, including Heaven, My Glimpse of Eternity, Making Your Husband Feel Loved, and Women in Tune.
