Product Description

If only... If only I could lose the weight, get the job, buy the house, I could be truly happy. Couldn't I? All too often, happiness seems to be beyond our reach.

How do we find lasting happiness in our lives? Maybe the answer isn't in our own lives at all. In this thoughtful, humorous, inspiring book, Matt Miofsky connects our deep desires with basic theology and unexpected biblical texts to redefine happiness and suggest a way forward in Christ.

Publisher's Description

We all dream of being happy. If we could just lose the extra weight, get the job, buy the house, we could truly be happy. But over time, it begins to seem as though lasting happiness is unattainable. Despite our best efforts, true happiness will never be a reality for us. So how do we find lasting happiness and contentment in our lives? Maybe the answer isn’t in our own lives at all.

Matt Miofsky connects the existential question, "Am I happy?", with basic theology and unexpected biblical texts. Starting with the book of Ecclesiastes, considering if any "thing" can make us happy, he explores the value of relationships, a forgiving lifestyle, living in the present, feeling gratitude, and learning to release control.

Additional components for a four-week study include a comprehensive Leader Guide and a DVD featuring author and pastor Matt Miofsky.
