Happy Like Jesus Lessons From Jesus Christ on How to Live Review and Giveaway...

President Gordon B. Hinckley was fond of saying, "Be believing. Be happy. Don't get discouraged. Things will work out." How could he, and all the other prophets and leaders of the Church, be so positive? Because they have the big picture. They know what is coming.


Despite all the struggles, hardships, difficulties, ordeals, and even painful afflictions of this life, they know that the glorious cause of the kingdom of God will triumph. Triumph is just a little umph added to try. 


—Chapter 1, Be Happy
Through chapters such as "Be Happy," "Be Prayerful," "Be Loving," and "Be Forgiving," the author takes us on a tour of seventeen attributes of our Savior and gives us hope that we can emulate those aspects of His personality. Readers will find much to inspire them to live better lives, to understand the gospel of Jesus Christ better, and, by emulating His life, to become Happy like Jesus.


I love this quote from the book...
The only measure of true greatness is how close a man can become like Jesus. That man is greatest who is most like Christ, and those who love him most will be most like him. 
~President Ezra Taft Benson~


This is a great book that I plan to use for FHE! I love how simple but profound the messages are. This would also make a great gift for Father's Day or any time of the year! 


Now here's the exciting part...


I get to give one lucky winner a copy of this book!
