Joyful Inspirations couples simple coloring pages with deep spiritual quotes for reflection.

Meyer challenges readers to commit to raising their level of expectation for 30 days and join others on social media to let them know how God is working in their lives. Look for the #TheHappyBook hashtag, join the challenge and share YOUR story.
