On today’s episode of the Journeywomen podcast, we’re chatting with Courtney Doctor about joy. Amidst a lot of other things, we talk about how God is both joyful and the source of our joy! This conversation is such a potent reminder to look to the Lord as the source of our joy. So you’ll know a little more about our guest, Courtney Doctor is an author, Bible teacher, frequent conference and retreat speaker, and periodic blogger. She received an MDiv from Covenant Theological Seminary and is the author of From Garden to Glory and Steadfast: A Devotional Bible Study on the Book of James (2019). She currently serves as the Coordinator of Women's Training and Content for The Gospel Coalition and as a Visiting Instructor of Communication at Covenant Theological Seminary. Courtney also has a love for education and serves on the advisory board for Covenant College in Lookout Mountain, GA.
