An instant New York Times bestseller Two spiritual giants. Five days. One timeless question. Nobel Peace Prize Laureates His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu have survived more than fifty years of exile and the soul-crushing violence of oppression. Despite their hardships—or, as they would say, because of them—they are two of the most joyful people on the planet. In April 2015, Archbishop Tutu traveled to the Dalai Lama's home in Dharamsala, India, to celebrate His Holiness's eightieth birthday and to create what they hoped would be a gift for others. They looked back on their long lives to answer a single burning question: How do we find joy in the face of life's inevitable suffering? They traded intimate stories, teased each other continually, and shared their spiritual practices. By the end of a week filled with laughter and punctuated with tears, these two global heroes had stared into the abyss and despair of our time and revealed how to live a life brimming with joy. This book offers us a rare opportunity to experience their astonishing and unprecendented week together, from the first embrace to the final good-bye. We get to listen as they explore the Nature of True Joy and confront each of the Obstacles of Joy—from fear, stress, and anger to grief, illness, and death. They then offer us the Eight Pillars of Joy, which provide the foundation for lasting happiness. Throughout, they include stories, wisdom, and science. Finally, they share their daily Joy Practices that anchor their own emotional and spiritual lives. The Archbishop has never claimed sainthood, and the Dalai Lama considers himself a simple monk. In this unique collaboration, they offer us the reflection of real lives filled with pain and turmoil in the midst of which they have been able to discover a level of peace, of courage, and of joy to which we can all aspire in our own lives.

"Give yourself a perk. Condition yourself for joy by doing little things that you love on a regular basis." Thomas Kinkade is America's most collected living artist. Each of the tranquil, light-infused paintings he creates is a quiet messenger, affirming the basic values of family, home, faith, and the luminous beauty of nature. Thomas Kinkade's paintings and his own words, as well as the words of Shakespeare, Keats, Wordsworth, and others, create a breathtaking gift book that is a jubilant celebration of beauty and joy. Kinkade points out that sources of joy can be found everywhere in the simple gifts life presents, such as the handshake of a friend, the caress of a warm breeze, or the sights and sounds of creation. He reminds readers that "Once you begin looking, you may be surprised to discover just how much joy your world has to offer."

Find your inner wellspring of happiness and experience serenity and hope every day with these self-care meditations and affirmations for women. Women face many challenges in our daily lives. Too often, we focus on caring for others and relegate self-care to an afterthought—if it’s ever thought of at all. When our lives are less fulfilling than they could be, low self-esteem, anxiety, and depression become common. Yet women have a tremendous spiritual resource—a capacity for real joy that springs from within. It is always available, regardless of circumstances. And when women tap into that deep wellspring of joy, nothing is impossible. The Woman’s Book of Joy encourages and inspires women to care more deeply for themselves through spiritual meditation and affirmations. It’s a practical motivational book for accessing inner wisdom, enhancing self-esteem, overcoming sorrow, and deepening relationships.

In his gospel, John gives eyewitness details that help us "be there" with Jesus. Now, Michael Card, with his unique blend of artistic craft and scholarly research--including his own translation of the gospel from the original Greek text--introduces us to the apostle and his gospel in a fresh new way. Scholarly insights and imagination make John's stories come to life and help us know in our hearts that his friend Jesus is truly the Son of God. "But these things have been written so you might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name" (John 20:31).
