Counselor and author Leslie Vernick has discovered that many people pray, Lord, I just want to be happy!” With candor, Leslie reveals that readers don’t need new circumstances but a new perspective to discover true happiness. With biblical insight, Leslie guides readers to take simple steps as they
- recognize and change habits that, day by day, keep them from experiencing happiness
- make good choices and learn from mistakes without beating themselves up
- develop the skills that enable them to let go of negative and painful emotions more quickly
- transform difficult circumstances so they can live with gratitude, joy, and purpose
Application questions help readers work godly thinking, as well as healthy skills and habits, into their lives and hearts. They’ll discover that, even if nothing changes in their circumstances, their inner chains can be broken and they can go free into a new path of real hope and happiness.
Leslie Vernick, a licensed clinical social worker with a private counseling practice, has authored numerous books, including The Emotionally Destructive Relationship and Lord, I Just Want to Be Happy. She completed postgraduate work in biblical counseling and cognitive therapy. Leslie and her husband, Howard, have been married more than 30 years and have two grown children.
Lord, I Just Want to Be Happy is a refreshing work, full of permission and wonderful skills for learning to be happy. Leslie Vernick offers hope, help, and messages of encouragement we can claim as our own in our personal quests for happiness. I most appreciate Leslie’s honesty. She has had plenty of situations that would make anyone wonder if happiness is even possible. Yet she’s found it and freely shares how we can find it for ourselves in this delightful book. I love it. It makes me happy.”
Jan Silvious, author of Big Girls Don’t Whine

Dr. Larry Crabb, psychologist, author, and founder of NewWay Ministries
Thank you, Leslie Vernick, for writing one of the best books I’ve ever read. I want to proclaim to the world: read this book! You’ll fall in love with God and with life for the first time or all over again.”
Elaine W. Miller, author of Splashes of Serenity: Bathtime Reflections for Drained Moms and Splashes of Serenity: Bathtime Reflections for Drained Wives
Thank you Leslie for another wonderful book, filled with such practical and effective cognitive therapy all based on Scripture. I'm ordering a case for my counseling clients.”
Jan Grentz, LPCC
Lord, I Just Want to Be Happy drew me by its title but it kept me because of its Biblical foundation. Leslie communicates that happiness is not find in a person, place or thing but in God. And, then gives practical steps to walk out to discover this truth for oneself.”

Janet B. Wojnaroski5 Stars Out Of 5February 22, 2010Janet B. WojnaroskiIn 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
Susan Riley5 Stars Out Of 5December 12, 2009Susan RileyHappiness 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.
tracy5 Stars Out Of 5November 30, 2009tracyWonderful 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!
