Take hold of hope, beauty, and life in a hurting world.
Maybe you’ve been whiplashed by an unexpected crisis. Or fear has gripped you, causing you to bury your dreams. Perhaps a sad ending has filled you with loss or hopelessness, and made your faith waver.
Don’t despair! God means for us to have JOY–a joy from Him that is defiant in the face of this broken world.
In this six-session video Bible study, Stasi Eldredge invites us with courage, candor, and tender vulnerability to a place beyond sadness or happiness. Using stories from Scripture, she expands on lessons from her book, Defiant Joy, to help us maintain a posture of holy defiance that neither denies nor diminishes our pain but dares us to live with expectant, unwavering hope.
This study guide for individual or group use includes video notes, group discussion questions, Scripture study, and biblical application for your life. It also features personal Bible study between group meetings, reading and journaling from Defiant Joy, worship song suggestions, and guided contemplative prayer.
