Editorial Reviews

"When we pray, the Lord may change our circumstances or change us in the circumstances.  Angela Donadio’s powerful and insightful walk through Paul’s letter to the Philippians focuses on the latter. The Apostle wrote from prison where his circumstances weren’t changing – yet his letter to the Philippians shares the joy of who he is, who he is with and the place he’s in. Finding Joy When Life is Out of Focus will help you to do the same as the Apostle.  I highly recommend this book." -Dr. George O. Wood, former Chairman, World Assemblies of God Fellowship



 

"I loved serving at Angela’s church! She is so full of love and life and… surprises! When our worship leader’s accompanist’s flight was delayed, Angela stepped right up and played the keyboard as if she’d rehearsed her whole life just for that one night! It was just one more indication that she is gifted by God and ready to serve however and whenever He calls! I am blessed to call her my sister in Christ." -Jennifer Rothschild, Author of Me, Myself & Lies: What to Say When You Talk to Yourself and Lessons I Learned in the Dark: Steps to Walking by Faith Not by Sight. www.JenniferRothschild.com

"The unsearchable riches of Christ’s life and love are discovered by people such as Angela as a result of trials and testings. It is out of these experiences that Angela writes for joy-thirsty women. As you read this book, take time for the Holy Spirit to compact the truths into your heart, soul, and mind; and as a result you, too, will have the life changing power of the Word of God, the real life victories that have resulted in the life and ministry of Angela. Because of the thirst that the Spirit birthed in the author’s heart, she now writes not just words to fill a book; but she sincerely desires for those who are hungry to live a life in Jesus to its fullest. This joy is given to those who are thirsty, for Jesus said in John 15:11: ’These things  have I spoken unto you that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.’"- Dr. Thomas Trask, former Chairman, World Assemblies of God Fellowship
 

"This is a page-turning, well written workbook with a narrative that will reach women from all walks of life. For each week, there is a true-to-life lesson that helps me find joy in seasons when my career path puts a demand on my focus and the highest expression of talents. Angela equips you with succinctly compiled material to help you begin a journey that creates opportunities for practical application of scripture. The context of the living, powerful and energetic word of God has been structured to be received with an attitude of meekness, reverence and the fear of God. Even as the entrance of God’s word continuously gives light and understanding, the reader sees themselves as part of a single comprehensive joy-filled plan of God that spans the universe. Finding their place in this joyful divine plan, readers achieve a sense of self-worth and personal fulfillment that satisfies their deepest longings for continuous joy. Scripture compares the word of God to the mirrors we use to reveal our outer appearance for adjustment. As I read this book, I encountered the mirror for my soul; the book of Philippians revealed my inward spiritual nature and condition. In the same way that I attend to anything my external mirror reveals without delay, I continue to attend to areas that need nourishment and adjustment so that I maintain continuous joy especially when my focus is challenged." -Esther Gatuma, PMP, CSM, FBCS, SAFe, Oprah Winfrey Show Season 25 Hero
 

"Let’s be honest. In the real world (yeah…this one) we all go through times when, due to circumstances beyond our control, joy is harder to find than a lost contact lens on an ice skating rink. And with that loss of joy, there goes our perspective—our ability to focus on the things that really matter, that will sustain us through adversity.
In Finding Joy When Life Is Out of Focus: Philippians - A Study for Joy-Thirsty Women by my friend Angela Donadio, we find hope that trouble can be paired with triumph, loss with learning, pain with praise. Throughout the pages of Finding Joy, Angela skillfully weaves the biblical truths that sustained and transformed her with her own personal story of agonizing struggle through two life-threatening illnesses. But this is anything but a ’poor me’ book. This practical yet profound study of Philippians will help spiritually-thirsty women everywhere find their way forward into new seasons of regained focus and rediscovered joy, just as Angela did. Yes, even in the real world." -Dr. Jodi Detrick, Author of The Jesus-Hearted Woman Speaker, Former Seattle Times columnist www.jodidetrick.com
 

"It has been a joy to know Angela and her husband, Pastor Dale Donadio. I have seen her go through some very challenging and life-threatening illnesses, and yet she has come out of them with greater strength, joy and vitality. Angela is a brilliant writer, and effective communicator. This is an inspiring book-we all need to find a little more joy as we face life filled with many challenges, disappointments and adversities. Be blessed!'"  -Elio Marrocco, Lead Minister New Life Christian Church BA, DipEd, DipTheol, DipCouns
