Keys to Joy is for individuals, couples or small groups, and includes a leader’s guide for group study. It provides the biblical understanding and life patterns you need to live joyfully regardless of your struggles. Once you’ve opened the door to joy, you’ll know how to assure it’s never shut again.

Bob Creson, President/CEO of Wycliffe Bible Translators USA, says about Keys to Joy:
“John records a wonderful statement made by Jesus, “I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow! (John 15:11 NLT) Jesus wants our joy to overflow. What are these things that Jesus spoke of? In this book, Keys to Joy, Ken and Gaylyn Williams, the father-daughter writing team, do us a favor by reminding us of the things that lead to joy in the Christian life. Based on the study of God’s Word, the contents of this book will lead the reader to a greater sense of who God is, and a deep abiding peace in the One who loves us and wants a relationship with his children.

Blessings on you,
