Life will always have its ups and downs, but with the life-changing secrets in this book, you can amplify and sustain the joy already inside you.
“For Joseph, happiness wasn’t about a menu of techniques or a collection of problem-solving solutions. It was about living daily before an almighty God who gripped him in the palm of his hand.” (source)
“Because no one’s happiness rises above their trust in God, and no one’s trust rises above their conception of him.” (source)
“True pilgrims practice the art of healthy detachment. They hold all things lightly and love nothing and no one more than God.” (source)
“it is anchored beyond circumstances. Even tears on the outside can’t detour the current of joy on the inside.” (source)
“For Joseph, adversity was inevitable but misery was optional” (source)
