In He Who Laughs Lasts Roy Hicks, dynamic church pioneer and former General Supervisor of the Foursquare Churches, presents the secret to maintaining the laughter in our lives. Many times we plow through life so intensely that we don't even realize something is missing. With all the demands on us it is easy to lose focus. Maintaining a close relationship with God, who "sit[s] in the heavens [and] laughs" (Ps. 2:4) will release joy and laughter in our own lives, for in His "presence is fulness of joy" (Ps. 16:11).
