Because it’s what we’re all looking for: 31 Days to Crazy Joy


31 Days!

I’ve never done this before.

I’m crazy. Crazy enough to think that everyone who breathes is a wild crusader for holy joy.

The woman bent over the stove. The man pulling on work boots. All those who feel invisible and unimportant and alone and discouraged and … wondering — is this as good as it’s ever going to get? Where do I find that holy grail of real joy?

When you really believe there’s such a thing as Crazy Love  — how do you find Crazy Joy?

Better yet — how do you live it?

A bit crazy too? Overwhelmed? The next 31 Days — together — in this quiet, still space: let’s discover Crazy Joy.

Are we just crazy enough to begin?

Let’s sit down together at the farm and just get real with each other.

So pull up a chair …

and Warren Smith, the associate publisher of WORLD Magazine, he sits down with us too, for an interview for one of the segments in WORLD Magazine‘s upcoming “New Christian Voices Series“… and yeah, I’ll stammer nervous, but sometimes God puts a fire in the bones of the knee-knocking and the next breath is just enough oxygen to ignite a life into full flame.

Crazy Joy could make this October into one wild burning bush:


Joy, it’s always a function of gratitude — and gratitude is always a function of perspective.

If we are going to change our lives, what we’re going to have to change is the way we see.

And the woman at the stove and the man in the workboots and all us tired and weary and worn, we can look up and see 31 days coming.

See October coming up the road like a blaze —

like this torch looking to light joy.
