60 Days of Happiness by Tandy Alcorn Discover God’s Promise of Relentless of Joy
About the Book: When it comes to happiness, most of us have the same questions. Why can’t I be consistently happy? Is it wrong to be happy when there’s so much pain and suffering in the world? And perhaps the biggest one: How can I be happier? Some Christians make an artificial contrast between joy and happiness, while others claim God wants us to be holy, but not happy. In fact, he wants us to be both, and the two go hand in hand!
In 60 Days of Happiness, noted theologian and New York Times bestselling author Randy Alcorn shares sixty timeless devotions demonstrating that God not only wants us to be happy in him and enjoy his gifts, he commands and empowers us to do so.

My Thoughts: Because I’d heard of Randy Alcorn I was very interested in reading his book when it was offered to me by the publisher in exchange for my review. Just like his other books 60 Days of Happiness is a winner. Life can be hard, stressful, frustrating, and so many other things and this book is a great relieve for people feeling any of that. Reading through day one I immediately saw how helpful it could be, and wanted to read the whole thing all the way through. The bible verses in addition to quotations were a great addition, and that this book comes in a bright yellow is so cheerful. It’d also make a great gift, with it’s smaller size and high end hardcover.
