About Unhurried Living:

Alan and Gem Fadling founded Unhurried Living to provide content and training that would help people lead from fullness rather than leading on empty. They strive to help leaders walk and work with God, instead of serving at a distance by:

Living all that we are learning so we share with others from experience and wisdom. Developing digital, print and video content that encourages the practices of an unhurried life. Training people in Jesus’ unhurried way of living and leading.

About The Joy Model book:

Have you attempted to make bold changes in the past to live with greater purpose and meaning only to get stuck and come up short?

Management consultant and Christian life coach Jeff Spadafora provides a blueprint for building a life of greater joy and delivers a plan for “frustrated believers to become joyful followers.”

An increasing number of adult American Christians are frustrated. Even as they read their Bibles, listen to sermons, and hang out with other Christians, they become painfully aware that something is missing—joy. As a result, many have given up on their faith being a source of joy, and instead seek meaning, purpose, and joy through their Christian service, work, relationships, hobbies, possessions, or even more destructive and hollow substitutes.

In The Joy Model, Jeff Spadafora offers an alternative, showing readers that joy comes from balancing the practical and spiritual sides of our lives—from the “Doing” and the “Being” of the Christian life. On the spiritual side, he reveals tried and true disciplines that move readers from knowing about God to actually experiencing him. On the practical side, he shows how to let our new understanding of God transform relationships, attitudes, finances, service, and work in ways that result in significant increases in joy. Weaving together his own spiritual journey, stories from his experience coaching others, and down-to-earth principles and practices, Spadafora helps readers find the joy in a life that is more vibrant and real than any they have experienced before.
