In a world searching for happiness, bestselling author Max Lucado provides a personal plan for a life filled with lasting and fulfilling joy, supported by Jesus' teaching and modern research.

Do you feel happy?

How long has it been since you felt a level of contagious, infectious, unflappable, unstoppable happiness? Maybe your answer is, "All the time." If so, God bless you! (And consider suggesting this book to someone who needs it.) For many of us the answer is, "Well, it's been a while. I used to be happy, but then life took its toll."

Only one-third of Americans surveyed said they were happy. How can this be? Education is accessible to most. We've made advancements in everything from medicine to technology, yet 66 percent of us can't find an adequate reason to check the "yes" box on the happiness questionnaire.

Worldwide, people profess that happiness is their most cherished goal. Marketers get this. "Want to be happy?" they ask. Eat at this restaurant, drive this car, wear this dress. Happiness happens when you lose the weight, get the date, find the mate, or discover your fate. It's wide, this way to happiness. Yet, for all its promise, it delivers a fragile joy; here one day, tomorrow scattered by the winds of comparison, disappointment, or unmet expectations.

Max writes, "There is another option. It requires no credit card, monthly mortgage, or stroke of fortune. Age and ethnicity aren't factors...an unexpected door to joy."

In this book Max shares the unexpected path to a lasting happiness, one that produces reliable joy in any season of life. Based on the teachings of Jesus and backed by modern research, How Happiness Happens presents a surprising but practical way of living that will change you from the inside out.

:
Max Lucado debunks society's idea of how to get happiness, leading the reader to the way of life that creates lasting and fulfilling joy, supported by Jesus' teaching and modern research.


Why don't I feel happy? I thought I'd feel it when I lost the weight, got the date, found the mate, or discovered my fate. I've worked hard for happiness. Yet, for all their promises, these roads I've been down fail to deliver.


Sound familiar?


In How Happiness Happens, Max Lucado takes a close look at what Jesus says about happiness and how to attain it. Max poses the question, "What if there is a different, unexpected path to happiness? What if the road is less good luck and more great love, not as much get and all about give?" Countercultural with every turn of the page, How Happiness Happens fights the inclinations we all have and the lies we've all been taught about putting self first as the way to capture the elusive yet longed-for "happy life."


By walking through the "one another" passages found in Scripture, Max equips the reader with both an overarching way of living and practical day-to-day actions that produce a life of happiness and moments of true joy. This new book from Max reveals the secret that the Bible teaches and research affirms: doing good does good for the doer.

Teaching Ministry of Max Lucado
In 1991, Max Lucado was presented the idea of developing a radio broadcast that focused solely on Jesus Christ. As a result, the vision for UpWords Ministries was born. Since that time, 'UpWords, with Max Lucado' has changed from a 15 minute, daily feature to an inspirational one minute message. Today, UpWords is heard in over fourteen hundred radio markets around the world.

Along with the inspirational radio program, UpWords provides a comprehensive library of full-length CDs as well as many downloadable audio files of Max's weekly sermons delivered to his home church in San Antonio, Texas.

UpWords exists for the sole purpose of encouraging others to take one step closer to Jesus Christ. The staff of UpWords is prayerfully dedicated to this purpose and is constantly humbled to see God's hand at work.
