About the Book

In the parables, Jesus of Nazareth taught many lessons. The wisdom he gives us is timeless and certain to help us find happiness, joy, peace, purpose, and fulfillment. We look for fulfillment and meaning on a daily basis in the lives we lead. We search for peace and restoration when the events of life are difficult. Jesus’ teachings give us everything we need to know in order to gain and maintain a steadfast, ever-present calm in the storms of life. In Truly Well and Joyful: What the Parables Promise, all of Jesus’ parables are presented and discussed. Taken as a whole, the parables tell us all we need to know in order to live truly well and joyful lives. They also teach us how to overcome grief, how to live in the holy present moment, how to find joy in service to others, how to find peace in responsibility, how to live, love, and create more fully. This book will be a timeless resource that you can refer to again and again to refresh and strengthen yourself through the truest words ever spoken: the parables.
