Jeff Spadafora | The Joy Model: A Step-by-Step Guide to Peace, Purpose, and Balance

Your blueprint for building a life of greater joy

It’s not just what you’re going to do but who you’re going to be and who is God continuing to shape you to be.Jeff Spadafora

joy-modelAn increasing number of adult American Christians are frustrated. Even as we read our Bibles, listen to sermons, and hang out with other Christians, we have a nagging feeling that something is missing: JOY. As a result, many of us has given up on our faith being a source of joy; instead, we seek meaning, purpose, and joy through our Christian service, work, relationships, hobbies, possessions, or even more destructive and hollow substitutes.

Join us in today’s episode, as my good friend, Jeff Spadafora shares The Joy Model with us! In this book, Jeff shares the breakthroughs he’s had and the simple tools and steps you can take to find your balance that will lead you to achieve real joy.

Happiness is circumstantial, but when the inevitable curveball hits happiness will evaporate in a minute whilst joy is this pervading all consistent sense of peace and contentment and well-being regardless of the circumstances.Jeff Spadafora

The path to real joy is a dual process; it involves striking a balance between the being and doing side. The doing side is merely an outflow, an overflow and an expression of all the joy that we are experiencing from the being side. You will be inspired as you hear Jeff share a step-by-step guide called his M-A-S-T-E-R plan.  This is one of the favorite conversations I have had on any podcast interview!!
