"Start from Joy is a proven recipe for living a life that matters." --Beth and Jeff McCord, founders of Your Enneagram Coach

Breaking old patterns doesn't have to be so hard.

You've heard it before: if you want to change, you have to try harder. Keep pushing through blood, sweat, and tears. Emotions don't matter.

But what if that's all a lie? What if there's a better, healthier way to get life-changing results?

Neal and Carly Samudre believe that joy is what's missing from our ability to make lasting change in our lives. Building on biblical insights and the latest findings in positive psychology, Start from Joy outlines an emotionally healthy approach to change--one where joy leads the way. This doesn't mean we choose happiness, become blindly optimistic, or force ourselves to have a positive mindset. Instead, we discover that real, lasting transformation can come free of shame, guilt, and fear. It can be fun.

In Start from Joy, you'll discover:
  • Why your bad habits are keeping you stuck--and how you can take steps toward freedom and positive change
  • How the four gifts of joy can help you stick with healthy patterns
  • How to heal your relationships with work, money, your body, and other people

Leave shame, guilt, and fear behind--and create the fulfilling life you were always meant to live.
