Barbara Joy knew that she would write a book one day.

The Oak Bluff singer/musician is launching her first book, New Every Morning.

"I’d always told my husband for years that I wanted to write a book," she said.
The self-published book contains 30 scripture passages, each with Barbara Joy’s comments and a short thought for the day. Some of her comments are poetic and others feature tips for daily living, such as recognizing that your neighbour might need help.

"The purpose of the book is to encourage you in your walk with the Lord," she said.
While the book’s title implies that readers should read a passage each morning,

Barbara Joy said the time of day isn’t important, but the daily reading should help guide their day.

The book launch is scheduled on Jan. 26 at 3 p.m. in the Travel Mug Café at Unit #5, 1727 Kenaston Blvd. in Winnipeg.

As well as reading from her book, she will perform a few of the winter songs from a
recording she made in 2011, A King has Come. She wrote the eight Christmas and winter songs on the recording, which was nominated for the Seasonal Album of the Year Award at the 2012 Canadian Gospel Music Awards.

New Every Morning is available at Sanford’s Access Credit Union and at Tredwell’s Music Centre (Suite 6-10, McGillivray Pl.) in Winnipeg.
