Embedded in the Bible is an underused handbook for moving step by step through real life with real joy. This is a guide to that journey. It will take you through each of the 15 steps from disappointment to rejoicing. Along the way you will discover how to follow God in family life, in church, at work, when people hurt you, when you need help, when you need a laugh, and more. The Psalms of Ascent were designed to make us happy pilgrims through the test of life without faking it and without failing it. Read this book and embark on a journey to joy.
