Kay is author of several books including her newest Choose Joy: Because Happiness Isn't Enough, which was adapted from a Bible study she first taught at Saddleback Church in July 2011, drawing more than 5,000 women for the four-week sessions. In the book, Kay describes how painful experiences - two bouts of cancer, watching as life-threatening illnesses attacked her children and grandchildren and living with mild depression most of her life have shaped her conviction that joy is a choice and within the reach of every person, no matter how desperate or dark circumstances may be.
She is also author of Dangerous Surrender, which was originally released in 2007 and revised, expanded and published as Say Yes to God in 2010, and coauthor of Foundations: 11 Core Truths to Build Your Life On with Pastor Tom Holladay in 2004.
