Chip Gaines, Co-Founder of Magnolia

“For me and my family, I’ve always said that the farm isn’t what made us happy. Instead, I believe it was everything that happened on our way to the farm…and it’s because of that journey that we are the people we are today. I love Max Lucado, I love his family, and I love the perspective he shares in How Happiness Happens. If you’re looking for a wakeup call or a dose of modern day wisdom, read this book. In fact, read all of his books—you’ll be glad you did.”

Christine Caine, NYT Best-Selling Author

“In a world where happiness has become fickle and fleeting, Max takes us back to Jesus’ path to happiness that is rooted in true joy and loving others. How Happiness Happens will challenge you to focus less on yourself and your circumstances, and more on our good God – the true source of our joy.”

Dennis Praeger, Nationally-Syndicated Radio Show Host

“Max Lucado, one of the leading Christian writers of our time, has written a wonderful book about one of life’s most important subjects: happiness. I have long argued that the happy make the world better and the unhappy make it worse. Therefore, this book can make the world better. I hope millions read it. And while it is written from a Christian’s perspective, anyone of any faith—or of no faith—will greatly benefit from it.”
