How Happiness Happens

As Max Lucado states,”People have a way of becoming what you encourage them to be.” This book is a great reminder to me to be even more of an encourager to the people in my life.
Max does a wonderful job of citing both stories from Scripture and stories from everyday life. What a blessing this book has been for me. You too will be blessed by this book and Max’s words. He always seems to be speaking right to you.

A great book!

Things don’t make you happy. If they do it’s momentary. Happiness is found in the one who gives eternal joy and this book can point you toward Him. Thanks Mr. Lucado!

A very religious book

Maybe I missed it in the description... I wish I had known that this book was so heavy on the religion. There are some great ideas, but too many references to Jesus and the Bible. The stories are a little odd too, it’s hard to know when the author is speaking in advice or story. I returned the book, as I couldn’t get more than a few hours in.
