Publisher's Summary

Great Joy Waits in Life's Greatest Battles

Joy is stamped on coffee mugs, sewn onto decorative pillows, even displayed on dish soap bottles. But what if there is a deeper power and purpose to this mighty virtue? Through vulnerable storytelling, a difficult diagnosis, and a good dose of humor, Margaret Feinberg reveals how joy is more than whimsy. It's the weapon you can use to fight life's battles. Fight Back with Joy will help you:

  • Expand your joy threshold by awakening to God's fierce love for you
  • Escape fear and regret by applying biblical strategies to whatever crisis you re facing
  • Overcome depression as you reignite your imagination for laughter and celebration
  • Discover freedom from the past by learning how to turn mourning into joy
  • Rise above endless demands and become more winsome, cheerful, and thankful

No matter what your circumstances, you can practice defiant joy. When you do, you will embrace a life that's richer and fuller than you've ever known before--a life radiant with joy.

The Balm of Gilead

God has used a number of things to get us through the last 5 years of fighting kidney failure, retinopathy, neuropathy, hyper tension and life threatening infections as a result of living a lifetime with diabetes. Caring for my husband has been as much of a blessing as it has been a painful challenge and self revealing. At this moment I MUST say this book has been to me like the BALM IN GILEAD! I listened intently repeating phrases and even chapters several times. I gave away my print copy and spoke to my women's group and explained how much they need to read even if they aren't "going through a crisis" at the moment. It has caused paradigm shifts, established a new paradox and changed my definition of joy! It's permission to go through this process and feel my emotions have given me freedom and its validations have healed spaces and places in my heart that were hurting! I cannot say enough, I cannot thank enough and I am overwhelmed with joy over the gift that this book has been to me and my husband...

Signed,
A refreshed caregiver fighting back with Joy!

serendipitous choice

As a Warrior Sister fighting Breast Cancer, I have surrounded myself with positive thoughts and an attitude of I can & I will. I ordered the sudiobook based on the cover text. I never csught the part that the author's dialogue includes her journey through Breast Cancer! This book has been lidtened to twice already in the first week of downloading it. I must investvin the paperback and kndle version as well. It's filled with strength, inspiration, practical suggestions, bible scription references, and antidotes to ponder. Loved it!

centered in reality and perfection

this book addresses real life and as such offers practical counsel in coping with the inevitable disappointments life brings. grounded in biblical scriptures, this book also offers spiritual strength, one that is also practical and not mystical or dismissive of reality. even more, this book is told by a person who lived through bher story and so it's relatable. I enjoyed this very much.

Awesome book!

This book is for anyone struggling to be joyful in any type of trial. Her writing is authentic and raw with practical applications as well as thought provoking concepts. Margaret shows us how to cling to God and find joy in the midst of any storm. Very good but graphic descriptions of cancer and chemo therapy. she doesn't sugarcoat anything. It challenged me and I loved it because it put my non-life-threatening problems into perspective.

Fight Back with Joy!

Combined with the same-titled DVD series used for my Bible Study group, I learned so much from the life of Margaret and the inspiration that the Bible provides for our day-to-day lives.

Blessed!

As a Stage II Breast cancer survivor, I found the way I related with Marilyn's story was profound. So many details I personally experienced she formed into beautiful words. All would benefit by reading this book, whether a survivor, patient in treatment or loved one or friend walking alongside the forementioned.
