About-

Christ said, “These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full” (John 15:11). A joy-filled person is the best advertisement Christ has for a joyless world to consider his loving offer of salvation. The second fruit of the Spirit (joy) makes one an inspirational and infectious person to be around, whether you are a marriage partner, a business leader, or a next-door neighbor.

The way Christ wants to accomplish this in and for us is through his two-step process as outlined in Colossians 3:

•Step One: “Put to death therefore what is earthly in you” (Col 3:5). We will refer to this as the removal of a Joy Killer.

•Step Two: “Put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge” (Col 3:10). We will refer to this as a Joy Maker.

Each chapter is divided into these two steps. First, it begins with a removal of a Joy Killer and it is immediately followed with its replacement of a Joy Maker. With each chapter, you find an increasingly deep and rewarding joy as you pitch your tent one day closer to eternity.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“This is LaVon’s second book, Life’s Joy Killers and Joy Makers, and it focuses on the critical second fruit of the spirit—joy. A joyful Christian is a magnet to the gospel. The reader is educated on the difference between happiness and joy early in the book. . . . The author is driving beyond the imparting of information to lasting change.”

—Bill Molinari, Executive Chairman of Christian Business Fellowship



“LaVon Koerner masterfully takes the reader on a journey through eight Joy Killers and Joy Makers. LaVon is a personable guide as he helps you grow younger along the journey and inches you forward in your relationship with Jesus. Get ready to be challenged in your thinking.”

—Bruce Strom, CEO, Administer Justice, and author of Gospel Justice



“LaVon has taken problems common to most and personal to me and showed me that they can be loved away through my relationship with Christ. Along the way I have been challenged, seen common parts of the Bible through new perspectives, and opened my eyes to the relationship that Christ wants for me through his scriptural leadership. I pray that the pages of this book hold the same power for you.”

—Derreck Keith, Vice President of Advanced Product Development, Power Solutions International



“This world is in so much pain. It is so easy for Satan to suck us into the ‘doomscrolling’ that picks us off one by one. We need to fight for our joy. . . . Grab your quiet space or your tribe and engage with each chapter. Life changes immediately. Start the upward spiral.”

—Lori Preston, organizational performance consultant
