Episode 08 | Phoebe Farag Mikhail ~ Joy in Times of Suffering
Coffee with Bishop Suriel
This is an interesting conversation with the author of “Putting Joy into Practice: Seven Ways to Lift Your Spirit from the Early Church.” The author of this book is Phoebe Farag Mikhail from Northern New Jersey. In her inaugural book, she describes what joy is and isn’t. She also shares stories from her daily life to highlight how to implement the seven ways of living joyfully from the early Church. This book was a #1 bestseller on Amazon in the Christian Orthodoxy category.
Phoebe cautions us in this insightful book of the joy thieves and describes them like little animals that steal tomatoes from the garden. The seven practices that Phoebe unravels take us on a spiritual journey in how to live a fulfilled and joyful life. This is Part 1 of a two-part conversation. I hope you tune in and learn some practical ways of how joy can enrich your life.
Putting Joy Into Practice: Seven Ways to Lift Your Spirit from the Early Church
Putting Joy into Practice: Seven Ways to Lift Your Spirit from the Early Church is an invitation to a life of joy. Phoebe Farag Mikhail explains what joy is and how to experience it through seven spiritual practices that cultivate our inner lives and connect us to our communities.
