Author, Christalee Froese

You will laugh. You will cry. You will be uplifted.

Journalist Christalee Froese vividly brings to life her recovery from depression in her first book, Journey to Joy. This bold, brave memoir follows Froese on a two-year journey to restore her happiness, and her faith in life.

After spending 21 days each month focusing on life-restoring topics like peace, creativity, food, fitness, faith, love, writing, travel, gratitude, and joy itself, Froese emerges with the hope she’d lost.

Both heartbreaking and humorous, Journey to Joy offers insight into the stumbles and falls of recovery, and the persistence required to get back up time and again. Froese’s journey takes her to a Chinese orphanage where she finds courage, strength and true purpose.

The raw storytelling will change how you view depression and anxiety …  and permanently alter your own approach to joy. Most profoundly, Journey to Joy will restore your faith in miracles, and the underlying goodness of mankind.

“I really, really liked this book. The back told me that this book would make me laugh, cry and feel uplifted. And that is exactly what happened to me! It was really easy to read because the style of writing feels like sitting down with a friend, drinking a cup of hot chocolate, chatting.”
