Susan Bricker5 Stars Out Of 5I Loved How Happiness Happens!September 17, 2019Susan BrickerQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I love reading Max Lucado's books and How Happiness Happens did not disappoint! I love his vital message, finding joy in the act of sharing it and creating a quiet revolution of joy in the world. Mr. Lucado uses research studies, personal stories, Biblical verses and stories, and goes into depth with 10 "one another" passages found in the Bible to deliver his powerful truths.
I love Max Lucado's writing style; easy to read, descriptive and visual, relatable, rich in Biblical history, and sprinkled with humor. I find that I learn so much from reading his books because he takes something that can be difficult to understand and breaks it down into digestible bites. As he told the story of Peter and the city of Caesarea Philippi, I felt like I was right there experiencing it! I loved Max Lucado's How Happiness Happens and feel it will bless everyone who reads it.

Because Happiness Happens when you give it away. 100% Recommend this book. So, get this book and "get your happy on"
Tina5 Stars Out Of 5Max Lucado has done it againSeptember 17, 2019TinaI absolutely LOVE this book. It offers easy ways to increase your happiness as well as the happiness of others. They're simple ideas, but not often the first things you think to do when you're discouraged or depressed. And they WORK!
GayIdleVirginiaAge: 55-65Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Easy to read. The principles seem simple yet challenging.September 17, 2019GayIdleVirginiaAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleIn the beginning of his book, How Happiness Happens, Max Lucado sets the premise, sighting statistical research, that while we all seek happiness only about 1/3 of us claim to actually be happy. He tells us that the door we walk through determines our ability to attain true happiness.
Is it through the "door to getting' or the 'door to giving'? In true Max style he brings it down to a practical walk it out kind of decision making. The decision to do good...because 'Doing good does good to the doer."
Max takes the more than 50 'one another' statements in the New Testament, "statements for making happiness happen", and condenses them into a list of 10.
In the remaining chapters, we find the author writing in his signature 'story telling' style. He lays out each statement and shows us through stories from his own life, the lives of others, and from the Bible how to walk out those principles that can lead to making happiness happen...both for ourselves and those within our sphere of influence...our family, friends, neighbors, etc.
I have found this book to be easy to read and the principles seem simple yet challenging. I jumped at the opportunity to read an advance copy of the first 5 chapters of this book from the publisher because of my own research into the word Happy and the concept of Happiness. I'm looking forward to getting my physical copy of the book when it releases to the public. While it is not a deep, thoroughly theologically researched book, I do believe it aligns itself with God's Word. So I am happy to give it a spot on my shelf alongside other books that have value on this subject.
If you are looking for a more in-depth study on "happiness" as it pertains to yourself and God, I would highly recommend adding Randy Alcorn's book, Happiness, to your reading on the subject. It will change the way you think about joy and happiness.
