How Happiness Happens
By: Max Lucado
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.
