Secrets of the Happy Soul
How do some people do it? They rise above the circumstances and distractions of life and remain consistently happy. Even in tough times they have a quiet sense of peace about them. Examining the Bible and her own life, Katie Orr has discovered that deep happiness and satisfaction are only possible when we are rooted in God and pursuing his good and specific purpose for each of us.
Secrets of the Happy Soul is your invitation into a deeper, more fruitful relationship with God and his Word. As Katie walks you through key teachings from the book of Psalms, you will recognize how the world's definition of happiness pales compared to the daily delights God has in store for you. Draw closer to him, and your soul will go from lonely to connected, from overwhelmed to level and led, from aimless to commissioned and unique. God doesn't promise a storm-free life, but he is the anchor every happy soul needs.
My thoughts: This book is such a beautiful reminder (or multiple reminders, since there is more than just one) on what we are made for. I loved Katie's insight and appreciated the "secrets" she shared for having a happy soul. I particularly love that each part has a soul searching section where the reader is asked to evaluate how they are on that particular subject. I especially appreciated her sharing about losing her brother, with having dealt with grief after losing my sister in law. I also loved reading about how she and her husband got together.
This is an excellent book to pick up!
I received this book from Bethany House. This is my honest review.
