I’m SO excited to announce our next BOOK CLUB DISCUSSION!
Drum roll please…
The Happiness Dare by Jennifer Dukes Lee!
This book has surprised me and actually changed my thinking on some huge topics of my faith. I actually picked this book up EXPECTING to disagree with the premise. Oh how God has such a delightful sense of humor. 🙂
If you’ve always heard the quote “God desires our holiness more than our happiness…” and if you tend to agree with that, you and I are in the same boat. And, surprisingly, this book has changed my opinion on it! I don’t believe that it has to be holy OR happy any longer! There are so many scripture references to the JOY that Jesus had…yet He was perfectly HOLY as well!! Join me as we dare to live the abundant life that God has for us.
Additionally, if, like me, you are prone to seeing the negative in this world…maybe prone to anxiety and depression…I really feel like you will be blessed by this book. Like Ann Voskamp taught me in One Thousand Gifts, the Happiness Dare challenges me to CHOOSE JOY, to appreciate the simple things, to fix my eyes on Jesus. While One Thousand gifts is one of my all time favorite reads, this book is very different. Very different writing styles. Yet, the Happiness Dare is quickly becoming one of my favorite books as well because it is a topic that I need!

Candace Crabtree says
Hi there! I am sorry, but right now that is the BEST and cheapest (free) method for discussion groups. I have tried doing book club discussions on my blog but I get VERY little interaction. Facebook (in a closed, private group) has proven to be a wonderful place to discuss privately and share encouragement with each other. 🙂
