In God Wants You Happy, Father Jonathan Morris replaces the unsatisfying, fleeting solutions we receive from the New Age self-help industry with the simplicity and depth of authentic Christian spirituality. In his work traveling the world for FOX News and in his parish work in New York City, Father Jonathan could not understand why people were choosing the vague and sometimes harmful advice of the self-help gurus and ignoring the tested and true help the Christian faith offers. He discovered that part of the problem was packaging: people thought the church dealt only in sin and guilt and not help and healing. But what if we reframed God's good news in the same terms as the self-help world?
Morris argues that self-help can only take you so far; what we need is God-help. God Wants You Happy offers a life-long spiritual program that teaches you how to open yourself up to God's loving presence in order to become everything he created you to be—joyful, flourishing men and women. In other words, God wants you to be happy.
Illuminated with biblical passages and filled with case studies and exercises, God Wants You Happy helps you to:
- Open your mind and heart to the all-loving God who wants to help and empower you
- Work through the Faith-Hope-Love Cure to rid yourself of self-destructive and self-limiting habits while forming new habits for receiving grace, forgiveness, acceptance, and love
- Tap into the natural mechanisms of self-improvement God has already put within you
- Discover your divine mission
A lifetime of happiness is at your fingertips and the Creator of the universe wants to help you achieve it.
Father Jonathan Morris is a Catholic priest in the Archdiocese of New York, an analyst for the Fox News Channel, and program director of The Catholic Channel on SiriusXM and in campus ministry at Columbia University. His books include The Promise: God's Purpose and Plan for When Life Hurts and God Wants You Happy. He lives in New York City.
“In this wonderful book Father Jonathan Morris explains exactly how God, through the Word of truth, the grace of Jesus Christ, and the power of the Holy Spirit, can transform your life in ways that no self-help book can do. Read this book and begin the journey of transformation.”
“The path to happiness and a just life is complicated. Father Morris offers a way forward that people of faith will find refreshing and relevant.”
“My friend Father Jonathan Morris elaborates with color and care the mysterious balance between our work and God’s grace, and the welcome result could open up a new section in our bookstores: God’s self-help programs.”
“Father Jonathan Morris has love in his heart for every human being, including every person lucky enough to read his powerful new book. Here is a plan for making God your partner in seeking the life you deserve, filled with happiness, hope and success.”
“Father Jonathan Morris’s inviting, accessible, and personal new book is a reminder of an overlooked truth: faith leads to joy, ... show[ing] us why joy is the surest sign of God’s presence in our lives.”
“Father Morris has succeeded where many others have failed, both in clarifying the much-abused notion of happiness and, more importantly, setting our natural desire for self-fulfillment firmly in the context of our, just as natural, search for God. This is a book, I think, that will change lives.”
