Press release submitted by Sam Newton


You Will Find Joy, written by Nancy Newton, has been published by Inspiring Voices.
The Greatest Book ever written! It has something for everyone; humor, pathos, romance, treachery, history, tragedy, feats of daring do. The Bible is undeniably the widest read and published book in the world. But really, something for everyone?

Many years ago I began reading "The Upper Room" as a daily devotional. I soon found numerous Bible passages spoke to me, like a primer or a guide. For example, in Psalms 24:12-14 David asks 'Do you want long life and happiness? Then keep from speaking evil and do good; strive for peace with all your heart'. I began categorizing passages like this, so when someone said 'I just don't see how the Bible applies to my life' the gauntlet was unknowingly thrown down and I picked it up resolutely. Thus You Will Find Joy came to life. And a unique life it is. Not a dogmatic tome, more a self-help manual, a way anyone can open up their lives.

Joy is unique because of its categorized biblical treatment. It is organized so whatever your situation you can easily find a Bible verse to help you.

As one reader observed: Nancy Newton's book is a delightful way to spend time with many special passages of the Bible. It can be used as a devotional guide or a topical guide. Using her knowledge of the Bible, Nancy has spent many hours in reflective thought and created a way to help people gain insight for their journey. – Reverend Anne Lippincott, Senior Pastor, St. John's United Methodist Church, Davenport, IA

My aim in putting together Joy is to spread the word our lives can be filled with joy, no matter what life brings.

You Will Find Joy is available in soft cover for $12.00 and as an ebook for $3.99.

About the Author – Nancy Newton is a retired Government employee who lives in Davenport, IA with her greyhounds. She is passionate about her faith, and protecting animals and the environment.
