Summary

The scents of Christmas invite our imaginations into the holiday season.  What emotions flood your heart when the holiday aromas waft your way?

Did you know:

Many favorite holiday scents like cinnamon, citrus, and cinnamon are found in the Bible? There is a rich heart connection attached to many of the plant essences found in Scripture? Myrrh is such an important essence, we can follow its trail from Genesis to Revelation with many significant stops along the way? Women of the Bible have personal encounters with God bringing aromas of His love and joy into their lives? Palm branches are an important part of Biblical celebrations beginning in Genesis and ending in the ultimate beach party around the Crystal Sea? (Christmas at the beach, anyone?)

In The Essence of Joy you’ll meet women of the Bible and contemporary women like you and me who will encourage you to discover the refreshing essence of a life lived in the presence of Jesus. Let JOY fill your heart with the aromas of His nativity. 

       For each of the nine essences featured in this book you'll find four different selections. 

*Fictional character, Cinnamah-Brosia, and her friends share life lessons and experiences, emphasizing symbolism and attributes of each essential oil, spice, fruit, or plant featured.

*An up close look at each one in Scripture.

*Visit women of the Bible who experience the essence of these spices and fruits through lessons they learned in their lives.

*Icing on the cake comes in the form of Essence Droplets -- "Fun Facts" and "Your Turn" -- providing hands-on opportunities for you to make them more relevant in your life.

Endorsements:

                  The Essence of Joy touched my heart with its compelling stories of forgiveness woven against the backdrop of the aromas mentioned throughout the Bible – frankincense, myrrh, cedarwood, cinnamon...                            ~~Patricia Bradley, author of the Logan Point Series and the Memphis Cold Case novels

The Essence of Joy utilizes all five senses to bring the truths of God’s word to life. Watson weaves relatable stories that would appeal to the inexperienced Bible reader as well as life-long Christians. She reveals lesser known facts about Biblical scents that will enrich your study of the Bible. Great Read!!   ~~Michelle Hammons, former Chairman Children’s Ministry Committee at Second Presbyterian Church (Memphis, TN), Bible Study Fellowship Small Group Leader, and Happy Christian Woman
