Topic: The Joy Model: A Step-by-Step Guide to Peace, Purpose, and Balance
Summary: Jeff speaks around the world on the content from his book The Joy Model: A Step-by-Step Guide to Peace, Purpose, and Balance. After a decade of coaching men and women through the Halftime journey, he has witnessed a surprisingly large number of Christians who are discontent with their lives and their faith. Not that there is anything catastrophically wrong, but the joy, peace and fulfilment that they read so much about in scripture is not — when they are honest with themselves — something they are experiencing in their lives. Sadly they think it’s their problem alone — that they aren’t spiritual enough or obedient enough or blessed enough — and that everyone else around them has figured it out. Through Spadafora’s coaching, studying and writing on this issue, he brings hope and inspiration with a simple and intuitive model for helping people make adjustments in their lives that will lead to greater joy.

Jeff Spadafora – Coaches Corner
“Too many people focus the better part of their lives on the wrong things: the company’s agenda, other peoples’ ideas of success . . . money. Over time, this leads to frustration and emptiness. True freedom comes as a people discover their God-given design and pour themselves into service for others.” –Jeff Spadafora
