Joy isn’t a luxury. It’s a necessity. But how do we find joy—and hold onto it—when so much in our life stands in the way?
Living Joy: 9 Rules to Help You Rediscover and Live Joy Every Day equips you with the wisdom you need to experience joy to the fullest.
With evidence, experience, and common sense, Chris Stefanick presents nine rules that will empower you to overcome the obstacles that are keeping you from unspeakable joy.
You’ll learn why
- gratitude is the first key to unlocking deep joy
- silence creates space in your life for happiness
- rest, friendship, and fun are integral to joyful living
and so much more.
No matter the circumstances of your life, Living Joy will show you exactly how you can claim the joy you were created for.
The Study Guide outlines a ten week program for personal or group use (we recommend doing it with friends!) that will help you unlock and keep joy.
With discussion questions for each rule, weekly challenges (like Smile! or Read a “Useless” Book), suggestions for deeper prayer, and quotes from Scripture and the saints, this Study Guide provides you with the tools you need to live out all the wisdom found in Living Joy.

“Living Joy is an urgently needed message for a world grasping for joy but settling for short-lived pleasures. With his characteristic humor and insights from daily living the faith, Chris Stefanick shares the path to joy found by people who live in places as different as New Jersey and the slums of Haiti. Living Joy will help you to discover the joy that only Jesus Christ can give. ‘These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full’ (Jn 15: 11).”
