Management consultant and Christian life coach Jeff Spadafora provides a blueprint for building a life of greater joy and delivers a plan for frustrated believers to become joyful followers.
An increasing number of adult American Christians are frustrated. Even as they read their Bibles, listen to sermons, and hang out with other Christians, they become painfully aware that something is missing: joy. As a result many have given up on their faith being a source of joy, and instead they seek meaning, purpose, and joy through their Christian service, work, relationships, hobbies, possessions, or even more destructive and hollow substitutes.
In The Joy Model, Jeff Spadafora offers a better way, showing listeners that joy comes from balancing the practical and spiritual sides of our lives - from the doing and the being of the Christian life. On the spiritual side, he reveals tried and true disciplines that move listeners from knowing about God to actually experiencing him. On the practical side, he shows how to let our new understanding of God transform relationships, attitudes, finances, service, and work in ways that result in significant increases in joy. Weaving together his own spiritual journey, stories from his experience coaching others, and down-to-earth principles and practices, Spadafora helps listeners find the joy in a life that is more vibrant and real than any they have experienced before.

I liked the audio because I could listen to, The Joy Model, while driving in the car. I also purchased the book so I could reread, highlight, use for a book club, and keep for future reference.
The step-by-step allows me to start evaluating my life and putting my findings into action. I've already made progress and loving it!
Tom Parks has a nice, soothing voice that is easy for listening. I would purchase another Audible book that he narrates.
Yes, I was only on chapter 3 when my mind was racing about who else would love this book. After reading the whole book, I made my list and bought several copies as gifts.
#1 gift for the holidays and 2017 that I'm giving to family, friends and co-workers. I feel like, "I'm spreading the JOY!"
