Some thoughts & insight to Where's The Joy? An Invitation to Look Up, Reach Out, & Experience Life's Greatest Treasure...


what everyone is asking for but can’t identify…

We all want some … 

People like joy, but sometimes they don’t know how to put a name on it. We want to experience a joyful life, but it may seem like a fallacy or unattainable Christmas bonus. Our world seems to be searching every possible avenue for joy. Billions are looking for a happy and satisfied life. Their search comes in all shapes and sizes. Climbing the corporate ladder, swiping through Tinder, binge shopping on Amazon Prime, vegging out on Netflix and Hulu, or pursuing another online degree. We play endless rounds of golf, take another Carnival Cruise, sip extra doses of gin and juice, attend the latest self-help retreat, and read The Book of Joy by the Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu. Thinking, “If I just do ‘this’ today I will be happy.” But we still come up short. We run on an endless treadmill, pursuing satisfaction and fulfillment. We are insatiably hunting for lasting happiness and don’t even realize it.

Let’s step back for a second, and ask: “What am I trying to find?” Most likely, it’s joy. Joy is not a new concept, just a forgotten one. We are hungry for it. The longing for joy is increasing. Many are starting to ask the hard questions, write the books, sing the songs, and pen the poems in the pursuit of joy. However, joy remains a bit of an untouchable mystery.

Leading me to ask, Where’s the Joy?

Believing in this truth that Jesus wants us to bask in his joy for us, knowing there have been people who have found it, and that it’s attainable is a real reality!

“Finding a book that celebrates the path that I am in with my life can be challenging. I have recently realized that my darkest of pitfalls was what allowed me to make the greatest of triumphs. It’s a life journey that’s hard to mirror on those who need the guidance who are just starting on their path.
Danny, you really have a way with becoming vulnerable to the reader, reflecting on your life in a way that’s easy to envision, but substantial enough, make a full circle to connect the dots back to joy. As a touch onto chapter 5; I too am happy you are here with us today. You have a lot of joy to bring on to this world. High five buddy!”

“Who knew that what the world was missing was joy? Danny’s book is the glue society never knew they needed but something we have been searching for. We live in a chaotic and disjointed world that unconsciously is looking for answers to feel whole again. This book reminds us of the joy that God wants for each of His children. Simply stated there is no need to search for it. We need only to rediscover the gift that was given to us in the first place. Thank you, Danny. A higher power truly drives the words that flow from this book. Angels come in all forms … even in a book about one simple subject … JOY!”
— Deb Cantrell : Executive Chef/Owner of Savor Culinary Services /
“Danny has managed to write a book that is simultaneously challenging and easy to comprehend. When I dove into reading it, I predicted this book would teach me about joy.  What I didn’t foresee was how it would wreck me, and cause me to hunger for deeper levels of joy and intimacy with Jesus.
This wonderfully crafted book is going to be a tool that God uses to break the chains of depression in those who seek to rejoice in the Lord.”
— Alexandria Cooper : World Traveler, Author, & High School Student
“Where’s The Joy? Something I think all people desire is to be “happy”, but how is that possible when life seems far less than ideal? Through Danny’s stories and experiences of life’s greatest great moments and the worst of the worst moments, he paints a beautiful picture of the true unending joy that is available in intimacy with Jesus Christ. This simple and yet complex truth is described in this book in tangible ways through stories, scripture, poetry, and much more, to make the reader truly reflect and understand the availability of a joy that never ends, fades, or wavers. This book is a great breathe of fresh air that points to the everlasting joy found in a God who loves us.”

“If I was going to use one word to describe Danny Williamson, it would be the word Joy! Joy just exudes from the guy, which makes him a real gift to be around. One of the things I love about Danny is that he believes in a Big God who loves his people and is for his people and it is that belief that serves and the catalyst for Danny’s joy, which is clearly expressed in the pages of this book. Danny speaks and writes from the heart and with a witty and down to earth style that is easy to relate to. This book with be a blessing and help to everyone who reads it!”
