Cheerful Christianity : A Child's Journey to Finding Jesus
Author: Olivia Barney
"I am a cheerful Christian; but not because life is easy, or because I feel the constant guidance of my Savior. Instead, I am cheerful because, with Christ, I'm enough." Olivia Ruth Barney spent over a decade of her childhood fighting her health. Through chronic pain and digestive issues that left her unable to eat for days at a time, she felt abandoned by God. But one day, she realized that maybe she was the one to abandon Him. While her team of doctors focused on managing her pain levels, Olivia turned her focus on something else: managing her faith. And that decision changed the entire course of her life.
With raw emotion and honesty, Olivia tells her story of finding joy and healing in the Savior and shares how even in her darkest days, the grace of God became the rock she could cling to when everything else came crashing down. Through her testimony, you will learn to believe that you are always worthy of being saved.
Discover specific ways to become best friends with your Savior. Realize that every low moment is an opportunity to deepen your relationship with God.
Being a cheerful Christian is about the journey home. It's about learning from difficult circumstances, feeling the full range of human emotions, and developing a relationship with our Savior.
