“Enjoy: Finding the Freedom to Delight Daily in God’s Good Gifts,” by Trillia Newbell

I recently had the chance to read Enjoy: Finding the Freedom to Delight Daily in God’s Good Gifts, by Trillia Newbell. This nonfiction book will be published on December 20, 2016, by Multnomah.

About this book (from the back cover):

Is It Okay to Enjoy This Life?
 
Watching a gorgeous sunset. Sharing a laugh with a friend. Tasting a sun-ripened strawberry. Each day is full of opportunities for you to savor the countless gifts the Creator has given.

But do you feel free to delight in God’s abundant gifts, or is your joy sometimes distorted by guilt, fear of idolatry, or simply an overwhelming awareness of sin’s effects on this world?

Trillia Newbell explains how we often miss opportunities to participate in God’s divine delight because we’re discouraged, fixated on selfish fulfillment, or paralyzed by guilt.  Enjoy serves as an encouraging reminder of God’s gracious gifts and also challenges women to view all of these gifts—from relationships and careers to food and sex—as reasons to rejoice in the Lord and grow in our understanding and appreciation of who He is.

This thought-provoking book invites you to explore the truth of God’s Word and discover how to nurture daily a spirit of gratitude and deep satisfaction.

Enjoy will open your eyes and your heart to the freedom of fully enjoying all God has given us!

Final Verdict:

I have loved Trillia Newbell’s vivacious spirit ever since I saw her speak at The Gospel Coalition Women’s Conference a few years ago, and that spirit really comes across in this book. Newbell is a brilliant woman and a great writer, and in this book she invites readers to take the time to enjoy God’s good gifts as a way of showing gratitude to the Creator of all things. She discusses how guilt in our enjoyment is really a manifestation of selfish ingratitude, and offers the freedom to enjoy things such as relational intimacy, beauty in the arts, work, food, and much more. This is a very encouraging book, and I highly recommend it!
