The House That Joy Built by Holly Ringland (Hardback)


An uplifting, positive and powerful book about breaking through fear and finding joy through creativity, from bestselling author, Holly Ringland.


The House that Joy Built is about the transformative power of finding joy through creativity, and offers a jump-start for anyone whose desire to create is flattened by fear. Fear of feeling vulnerable, of criticism and judgement from others, of not being good enough, of having ‘bad’ ideas, of being ‘too much’. This book is for everyone who has ever felt stuck creatively. It is for those yearning to write, and also for anyone who longs to create but doesn’t know how to find a way into, or back to their imagination.

Uplifting, powerful and inspiring, The House That Joy Built is an exhilarating, openhearted clarion call to experience the joy and freedom of creativity.
