The other day, I was at the bookstore and saw an entire shelf of books for sale under the heading “Finding Happiness.” I have read many of those books, and they are full of fascinating research and fun stories. But all of those books on that shelf are missing one thing. They are missing the source of deepest happiness, Jesus Christ.
That’s why I wrote The Happiness Dare: Pursuing Your Heart’s Deepest, Holiest, and Most Vulnerable Desire.
I had to know what it really meant to be happy. I had to know if, as as Christian, it was okay to desire happiness. I had all the questions you might be asking:
Does God actually want us to be happy? Is happiness shallow? Does God care only about our holiness, instead of our happiness? Isn’t it joy that we’re really after?
I started asking those questions nearly two years ago. That’s when I embarked on a terrific dare from God to find out the answers. That dare led me to write a book.
I wrote that book for my own heart, but I also wrote it for you. You are the reason the dare turned into a book.
The book comes out August 2, 2016. And I would love your help in bringing this message of happiness and hope to a world desperately in need of the source of both.
Will you join my launch team?
What is a launch team?
A launch team is a group of 200-300 people who are excited about the message, joining to help spread the word about the book in a variety of ways. But our launch team is more than a launch team. It’s also a book club! If you sign up, you will get a free copy of the ebook very soon, and you'll be among the first readers!
Why a book club?
First, I truly want you to experience happiness the way our Father intended. Second, when we dive into happiness together, we can ignite a flame through our families, communities, and beyond. We’ll encourage each other and those around us to experience a true, deep happiness.
What does a launch team member receive?
You will get:
1 – A complimentary ebook
2 – An interactive journal experience, led by me. We’ll have a private Facebook group where I’ll be coaching and encouraging the group all the way through the book.
3 – Gifts and prizes!
What does a launch team member do?
You read the book and share about it in your world (real life and online) before it releases. You can do that on social media, your blog (if you have one) and/or in your everyday life. We’ll provide you with fun graphics and other information that you can share. And we’d be thrilled if you’d also write a short review. (We’ll explain all of that in the Facebook group.)
