Description: Family therapist Nicole Zasowski challenges you to let go of dwelling in your anxieties and fears and instead ask yourself the question: What if it's wonderful? These questions haunt many of us, leaving us sick with anxiety and frozen into inaction: what if my hope only leads to disappointment? What if I embrace joy only to have it ripped from my hands? What if my celebration is the cause of others' sadness? What if my joy takes me away from the God I knew so well in my pain? But these fears don't have to control your life. Author and marriage and family therapist Nicole Zasowski knows what it's like to suffer a blow that makes it difficult to look to the future. Despite the struggle, she found the courage to celebrate, and discovered that God is as present in our joy as He is in our pain. Yes, God's purpose for us is worked out in our struggles. But what if it is also worked out in our dreams and our delighted joy? In What If it's Wonderful? Nicole helps you: Overcome the fears that keep you from looking toward the future with joy Let go of the lies you've believed about happiness and embrace celebration as a part of spiritual growth Approach life with an expectant heart and courage to trust God's good gifts With a psychological and spiritual case for celebrating, Nicole challenges you to let go of the habit of practicing disappointment and fully embrace joy, beckoning you to ask yourself a new question: What if it's wonderful?.

Review: Just like the author Nicole, I also have journeyed through a season of recurrent miscarriage, and I immediately recognised a lot of what she writes about the loss of joy in myself as well. What I especially loved about this book was Nicole’s insistence that joy is not just something to be experienced on the other side of waiting, or after we have received our desired outcomes - but right here, right now, in the messy middle of life. This book is a wonderful invitation to practice celebration in response to God’s goodness, regardless of our circumstances - and reading it was a timely balm for my soul.

Review: What if it really is wonderful? What if celebration becomes a response to God‘s goodness, rather than something I earn, or rather than a job completed? What if practicing celebration today leads me to the joy-filled tomorrow I long for? Author Nicole Zasowski ushers the reader into a deep and personal discussion surrounding our choice to celebrate, in the reality of our own brokenness and the brokenness of the world surrounding us. With her soft and gentle language coupled with the sage wisdom of a seasoned counselor, she beautifully communicates with language that resonates deeply with our human souls. I personally love how she affirms each chapter with a story from the Bible that validates her discoveries. Nicole’s vulnerability is refreshing and she has the ability to give words to and understand our human struggle as well as bringing redemption and practical steps to the table. It’s not my own goodness that is worth celebrating, but it’s in rejoicing in God‘s good gifts of beauty and grace that are most worthy of celebration. One of my favorite quotes from the book is this, “Celebrating who we are means acknowledging the reality of our failures and the truth of our gifting, and feeling joy about who we are apart from both. We underestimate the courage that is required to gaze into the expanse of our belovedness .” We can notice, celebrate, and gaze upon beauty and experience joy in this season, in any season. Celebration can hold both sorrow and joy at the very same time. We can focus our attention on what is good, we can practice celebrating the life we are living right at this very moment. Celebration is for you and I, and it is for today, both internally, and as an external expression of that joy. It’s God’s healing balm for our broken hearts, and for the world around us. I can wholeheartedly recommend this book to any age woman, especially those of us seeking to live a more abundant life. Celebration connects me to God’s abundance. This will be a book on my shelf that I continue to return to.??
