I received a copy of 31 DAYS TO HAPPINESS: HOW TO FIND WHAT REALLY MATTERS IN LIFE by David Jeremiah from Thomas Nelson via BookSneeze. I love these kinds of books that bring history into our everyday lives. The book delves into the life and times of King Solomon, and transforms him into a real character the normal person can relate to.
Some people I know dislike “self-help books,” but I don’t see them as a “fix-all.” Usually, I take away one or two thoughts that I get to mull over, and hopefully, they improve how I look at the world. I read this book while considering the things that happen that keep me from “happiness.” Work, being busy, the long drive home, the challenges that cause people to look down on me, the projects I don’t have time for, the projects that keep me away from my boyfriend… With those written down, I set to work on 31 DAYS TO HAPPINESS. Chapter 15, Employment without Enjoyment, stood out to me the most. Which one stands out to you?
I recommend this not only for people looking to improve their lives, but for those seeking a new perspective. I’m passing this book on to my friends and family.
