We are back with another episode of the new (in)courage podcast!
This week, Becky Keife and Mary Carver dive into this season’s topic of courageous joy by starting with some foundational questions. They ask (and answer), “What is joy? And why is it important?”
After sharing their own understanding of joy and why it’s so crucial to each and every one of us, Becky and Mary take a look at the story of the prodigal son. (You can find the full story in Luke 15:11-32.) They look at the role joy plays in each of the characters and discuss how we can experience true joy when we understand God’s lavish love, acceptance, and provision.
In this episode, we also hear from Aliza Latta, (in)courage contributor, as she shares her own story of joy from Week One, Day Two of Courageous Joy.
Every episode of this podcast will end with a Bible verse for the week. This week, we reflect on Romans 15:13:
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Beth Williams says
Joy is a feeling of good cheer & a vibrant happiness. It is a deep-rooted, inspired happiness. For me joy comes from knowing God is there willing to help me get through any & all trials. It isn’t pollyanna thinking life is going to be perfect/wonderful all the time. It is a feeling of being secure & rooted in the truth that God loves me no matter what I do.
