"The game of life is a boomerang," says the optimistic author Barbara Johnson in Boomerang Joy, a collection of 60 brief devotional essays. Johnson contends that our thoughts, deeds, and words return to us sooner or later with astounding accuracy. If you initiate joy, if you learn to "fling a smile a mile," Johnson promises that the happiness you send out will return to you "more accurately each time you toss it out." Johnson's writing style occasionally falls into Pollyanna chattiness, but, overall, fans find her narrative warm and inspiring, as she tells humorous anecdotes and testifies to the power of boomerang joy and Christian prayer. Topics for devotionals include: "Unquenchable Grins," "Love More and Regret Less," "Nestle, Don't Wrestle," "Power in Forgiveness," and "Fling Out Jesus' Joy." --Gail Hudson
