Erin Vick Franklin, founder/director of Worthy of the Prize Ministries was inspired to compile the stories for Find Joy in the Journey: how 12 women could face tomorrow just because He lives after enduring her own crisis and finding the Joy that comes only through Christ. The crisis, which became the inspiration for the book, led her to the twelve women whose stories are featured in the newly released E-book.
Find Joy in the Journey peeks into the lives of the 12 women whose stories it tells with the purpose of inspiring and encouraging women as they endure varied crises. Several of the stories throughout the book highlighted women who have struggled through the journey of adoption. Though the stories are varied in the types of struggles, a common theme is woven throughout...no matter what the circumstances, when we look up and surrender control, the Lord provides true, unprecedented JOY.
I would highly recommend this easy-read for anyone, whether in a state of crisis or not, as it is an uplifting book pointing to the One who brings true joy.
Now, for the GIVEAWAY! One exciting part of this book is the impact it has had on this adoptive mama ministry. When we were planning the retreat, the name of the book just kept coming back to us and we prayed about it and all felt a peace about using "Joy in the Journey" for the retreat/blog title. When we contacted Erin about using the name, she was so gracious and even allowed us to promote the book on the blog. Her designer, Mary Jo Smith of 517 Creations worked with us to create the graphics you see on the site. Erin also allowed us to GIVE AWAY one copy of the book!!
Worthy of the Prize ministries also has a whole segment of their ministry devoted to Orphan Care. One of the things they do to support orphan ministry is their Chosen Child Program, where adopting families can sign up to raise funds through them selling these great Fit Bands!
...and she's letting us give one of these away too!!
