Book Review: Simple Secrets to a Happy Life

Simple Secrets to a Happy Life
by:  Luci Swindoll

About the Book:
"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."

My Review:
Simple Secrets to a Happy Life is a great book that I found to be full of common sense.  I love many of Luci's 50 Tips for leading a simply happy life and making the most of everyday.  She gives you this advice in 50 short and sweet chapters, where she shares stories or bible scriptures.  I love that this book can be read all the way through or you could leave it out and read them for some quick inspiration and even a reminder for yourself to life a happy life.  I found three tips that have become my faves:
#2 - Be on time for everything
#21- Build yourself a small library
#40- Celebrate the life your given
I already practice the first one, but I sure wish more people did, I am working on the second and I do the third everyday.  This is a great book to give as a gift to someone who is feeling depressed or lonely as it's full of simple ways to live happy and fulfilled.  2 Thumbs Up!

*I received the book in this post compliments of BookSneeze for purposes of this review, however all opinions are my own.
