Best-selling author and speaker Barbara Johnson is famous for seeing and celebrating the bright side of life's ups-and-downs. Now, in her first-ever devotional, she dares you to lighten up and enjoy life to the hilt. As Barbara says, "You've got to hone your ability to fling a smile a mile. Sure as anything, it'll boomerang right back to you, more accurately each time you toss it out."Barbara knows life is far too serious not to laugh. In 60 wise, witty devotions--salted with humor and peppered with the madcap illustrations of syndicated cartoonist John McPherson--she helps you perfect the art of the well-aimed chuckle.Boomerang Joy is the perfect tonic for when you feel tired or worn out--or when you just want a good laugh and some heartfelt encouragement. Barbara Johnson's fun-filled insights will help you revel in your relationship with God and spread the joy of knowing His love.Just like a boomerang, joy that's flung out far and wide will smack right back to you!
Barbara Johnson was the founder of Spatula Ministries, a coauthor of various Women of Faith devotionals, and the author of numerous bestselling books, including Boomerang Joy, Living Somewhere between Estrogen and Death, and Stick a Geranium in Your Hat and Be Happy.
