Ok, maybe I’m exaggerating a bit but Luci Swindoll has packed up almost 80 years of wisdom on how to be happy and packaged it in bite-sized essays. Each essay focuses on a different life lesson in happiness. The lessons are sorted into five parts, The Basics, Developing Your Style, Achieving Balance, Living a Good Life and Staying Connected. If you’ve ever had the chance to hear Luci speak, you’ll know that this woman radiates joy and her wisdom is packed with humor but more than just humor, Luci passes along her message with a gracious spirit that makes learning fun.
I once passed Luci in the hallway at a Women of Faith event. Luci had been having trouble with a leg and was cruising the concourse in a wheelchair pushed by a friend. She was laughing as she passed me and I commented, “Luci, I’d like to be just like you when I grow up!” Without missing a beat, she replied, “Why wait until then?” Why, indeed? You’re never too old or too young to start increasing the happiness quotient in your life. Grab yourself a copy of “Simple Secrets to a Happy Life” and start reading, I’m pretty sure you’ll be glad you did!
