Review of Simple Secrets to a Happy Life by Luci Swindoll

I had the opportunity to read and review Luci Swindoll's book Simple Secrets to a Happy Life and I have to say that it was one of the most encouraging and uplifting books I have ever read. I had never read anything by Luci Swindoll. I had heard her name through reading about Women of Faith, so I expected a good book, but it far exceeded my expectations. It was so easy to read. I laughed through many of the chapters. There were so many tips in this book that I wish every mom or grandmother passed on to their children. The description of the book states: 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. I loved reading every single word of this book. I think it is one that I will save to read again when I'm needing encouragement and a different attitude. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone that is looking for encouragement or just wants to smile or laugh while reading a book. You will not regret reading this book! I received this book for free from Booksneeze, in exchange for an honest review.
