In her newest book, Leslie Vernick simply and compellingly helps us understand how to confront the demands of life with the promises of scripture. To do so she takes up-to-date psychology, tests its truth and authenticity against Scripture and spits it out in understandable prose and simple, but powerful questions and exercises.I recommend this book for Bible Studies and general personal reading. all of the relevant data in a meaningful relationship
Happiness is a choice. Leslie shows us how to climb out of our pit of dispair. She uses practical & biblical sound advise to direct us to inner peace and happiness. She shows us how happiness is a chosen state of mind, not a result of circumstances. We can Choose to Be Happy! First by redirecting our negative self-centered focus to... seeing ourselves through God's eyes. God made us who we are. We are his perfect creation and he loves us! inspite of our faults! Happiness is knowing we are on his team...resting under his protection and his direction. And knowing that He put us here in our (good or bad) situation for a purpose. Thank you, Leslie, for impowering us to choose HAPPINESS! It's where I rather be.
Wonderful book. Not only is Leslie's advice sound and biblical but it is practical and easily applied to everyday life. I read the book anticipating to use it in counseling and teaching but found it very thought provoking for my own spiritual state of mind and happiness level. Well worth your time!
I greatly enjoyed Mrs. Vernick's latest book Lord, I just want to be happy. Leslie writes in a way that is easy to understand and motivating for change at the same time. She makes understanding spiritual growth and spiritual disciplines simple. One of my favorite quotes from her book states that "Happiness isn't about feeling fabulous and never feeling pain. It's about feeling pain and finding purpose. It's about experiencing joy, hope, love, and peace in the midst of our tears." Lord, I just want to be happy is practical, encouraging and hopeful!
As a pastor's wife I encounter many woman who are looking for freedom to enjoy life despite whatever difficult circumstances they are experiencing. In her book Lord I Just Want to Be Happy, Leslie Vernick offers practical and effictive biblical steps to get out of the cycle of unhappiness. Through the process of coming to a clear understanding of what makes us unhappy and the "how to" of overcoming these obstacles. She shares with us some of the skills necessary in order to retrain our thinking from a self-focus to God-focused mentality. Through practical daily application of Scripture we are given just the encouragment and skills necessary to "be happy". I highly recommend this book!
