The key to happiness is being rich, successful, and beautiful…right? Best-selling author Martin Thielen, insists that this is far from the truth.
In Searching for Happiness, Thielen uses psychological research, personal anecdotes, and Scripture, to describe ten practices that do contribute to happiness. Instead of aiming to make more money, Thielen contends that expressing gratitude and cultivating optimism are surer paths to joy. Rather than focusing on constant advancement in our careers, let's practice our ability to forgive, to be generous, and to use trials as growth opportunities. These lessons and much more, will help anyone who is dissatisfied in their lives see that authentic contentment is closer than they ever imagined. Also features a guide for group or individual study.

"Martin Thielen's new book, Searching for Happiness, is a captivating read. I read it straight through in one sitting. Using Scripture, science and personal experience, Martin reminds us eloquently that happiness does not come from material things or external circumstances, but rather, real contentment comes from within us. At the end of the day, happiness is 'an inside job!'"
