"What does this book feel like? Turning these pages is like walking into a surprise party given to celebrate me, personal attention that in my private heart I usually resist, but here, with the verve, ease and spirit of this book by Joy Resor, I am won over. There is an immediacy in my sense of surprise—Resor's writing style is one of engagement. Go In Joy! An Alphabetical Adventure deftly weaves together rich stories, keen reflections, and beautiful and provocative questions along with poems that get to the heart and bone of the matter: how you can live your life and be in relationship with more honesty, greater joy, and an unequivocal authenticity."
—John Fox, author of Finding What You Didn't Lose: Expressing Your Truth and Creativity Through Poem-Making 20th Anniversary

"Go In Joy! is a wonderfully delightful book that leaves us wanting more. It's full of profound questions skillfully wrapped in colorful leaves of innocence and playfulness. Sometimes 'clever' can be overdone. Not here. The author's inventive weaving of words is brilliant. A charming and healing read."
—Dr. Suka Chapel-Horst, author of Take a Leap of Faith

"This wonderful collection of delicious, bite-sized essays are ideal readings to reflect on as you start or end your day. Joy takes us into her heart and along the pathway of her own spiritual journey, from wounding, confusion and self-doubt into a full engagement and celebration of all aspects of life, shadow, and light. Lyrical and inspiring, it is filled with the gems of wisdom she has gathered along the way."
—Chelsea Wakefield, author of Negotiating the Inner Peace Treaty
