Simple Secrets to a Happy Life by Luci Swindoll

Simple Secrets to a Happy Life by Luci Swindoll is filled with tips to help you live a happy life. If you need help to be more organized, healthy, creative, and of course happy, this is a great book to help you achieve those attributes.

Book Description
Is it possible to stay full of life, laughter, love, and the Lord through eight decades in this crazy world? Is that even realistic? Yes! There is hope, and Luci Swindoll is living proof.
With heart and humor, this best-selling author and beloved speaker lays out the truths that can help us all become a little more creative, organized, healthy, and happy. This is not a complex prescription for how to become superwoman. These are simple secrets, the wisdom produced by years of walking with God and living well.
We don’t need more tips for “having it all,” but we could all use insight on “having what matters,” and there is no better guide than Luci Swindoll.
Luci has spent eight decades accumulating the stories, memories, verses, and practical tips that make up Simple Secrets to a Happy Life. Whether traveling the world or building life-long friendships, singing in the opera or working for Mobil Oil, every step has taught her a little more about how to love God, love her neighbor, and love herself.
The result is both personal and universal. Organized into fifty short chapters, her reflections form a simple and profound outline for making the most of the lives God has given us.
We could all use a little more joy in our lives, which means we could all use a little more Luci. Visit her through these snapshots of wisdom. You’ll find yourself drawn back again and again.” – Simple Secrets to a Happy Life

My Thoughts
Simple Secrets to a Happy Life includes fifty chapters. Don’t let that scare you though, they are all rather short chapters meant to be read and absorbed one at a time. If you only have a few minutes to read, these chapters would obviously be best read one at a time. However, if you have more time to read, you can of course read as many of the chapters in a row as you wish.

When I read through the book, I preferred to read them one at a time, and then come back and read more later (even if it was just ten minutes later). It gave me time to think about what I just read and think about ways to apply it in my own life.

Luci Swindoll writes in a very relatable manner, which makes you feel like you are sitting at her kitchen table sipping tea or hot chocolate, while she is giving you the wisdom she has learned through life.

I enjoyed this book and think that it will be extremely helpful for many people who decide to read it. I definitely recommend it to everyone who wants to be even a little bit happier in life.
