Publisher's Description

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.

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.”
