For centuries, people have written books about ways to be happy such as: how to attain riches, how to have a perfect marriage, how to win friends and influence people and many others. Some of this advice may work for a while, but unfortunately, it's temporary. No happiness "of this world" lasts. Only that which is built on a solid foundation of God's Word will give you lasting happiness. You may have power, money and fame, but none of it will matter unless you have a relationship with God. This is not an instruction book. It is a variety of essays that includes mini-stories from the author's personal life and the lives of people she's met along the corridors of life. Some are real-life examples of the various ways people seek happiness. The stories represent special holidays as well as some days that weren't so special, but that, nevertheless, left an impression on this author that prompted her to share them with others. They first appeared in The Charleston Gazette and several have been reprinted in both print and online magazines.
