In a modern-day manifestation of the healing miracle Jesus performed on the paralyzed beggar at the gate called Beautiful in Acts 3, Joy Smith Griffin likewise jumped to her feet, walking and leaping and praising God! Having been paralyzed from a sports injury at the age of 22, her complete confinement for eighteen months led to a personal encounter with the living God that transformed her in spirit, soul, and body.

Called to tell the world about the Lord who healed her in every way, "Jumping for Joy" is a compilation of the missionary journeys of Joy Smith Griffin over a span of three decades to seventy-five nations. From post-Communist Estonia to the Great Wall of China, from mud huts in Africa to India's Taj Mahal, from the murky waters of the Amazon to the wide expanse of the Nile---Joy has carried the shoes of the gospel of peace to many who have never heard about Jesus Christ.

In a world where there is trouble, we have the assurance that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Even as media reports of famine and floods, persecution and pestilence, rebellion and rioting fill the airwaves, the good news of the gospel is reaching the uttermost ends of the earth. Come and experience Joy's incredible journeys with Jesus. Her remarkable stories of miracles, signs, and wonders around the world will ignite a passion to further the expansion of the gospel wherever the Holy Spirit leads your own beautiful feet.

"How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!" - Romans 10:15
