In a world everyone is searching endlessly for happiness, bestselling author Max Lucado, establishes a personal path for a life filled with lasting and fulfilling joy, supported by teachings of Jesus and modern research.
Do you feel happy?
When was the last time you felt a surge of contagious, infectious, unflappable, unstoppable happiness? If you feel that way all the time, then God bless you (and consider passing this book along to someone who needs it). For many of us, we know it's been a long time. Maybe we used to be happy, but then life took its toll.
One-third of Americans who were surveyed said they were happy. How can this be? Education is accessible to most of us, we've made advancements in everything from medicine to technology, yet 66% of us can't find a good enough reason to check the yes box on the happiness questionnaire.
Globally, people say happiness is their most sought after goal. Marketers get it, they often ask us if we want to be happy before telling us what restaurant to eat at, which car to drive, and what clothes to wear. Happiness happens when you lose the weight, get the date, find the mate, or discover your fate...or so you're told. Yet for all the times we're told what it takes to be happy, the pay off is minimal, delivering a fragile joy that's here one day, and gone the next scattered by the winds of compassion, disappointment, or unmet expectations.
“There is another option," Max Lucado shares. "It requires no credit card, monthly mortgage, or stroke of fortune. Age and ethnicity aren’t factors...an unexpected door to joy.”
In How Happiness Happens, Max presents an unexpected path to a lasting happiness, one that produces reliable joy in all seasons of life. Based on the teachings of Jesus and supported by contemporary research, this book offers a surprising yet practical way of living that will change you from the inside out.
