President Gordon B. Hinckley was fond of saying, "Be believing. Be happy. Don't get discouraged. Things will work out." How could he, and all the other prophets and leaders of the Church, be so positive? Because they have the big picture. They know what is coming. Despite all the struggles, hardships, difficulties, ordeals, and even painful afflictions of this life, they know that the glorious cause of the kingdom of God will triumph. Triumph is just a little umph added to try. —Chapter 1, Be Happy
Through chapters such as "Be Happy," "Be Prayerful," "Be Loving," and "Be Forgiving," the author takes us on a tour of seventeen attributes of our Savior and gives us hope that we can emulate those aspects of His personality. Readers will find much to inspire them to live better lives, to understand the gospel of Jesus Christ better, and, by emulating His life, to become Happy like Jesus.
This is the best book I have ever purchased and read from Deseret Book. It is uplifting, sweet, and an easy read. It truly embodies the spirit and life of our Savior.
What a powerful, life-changing text is packed into this little, unassuming package. I LOVE this book and find myself continually returning to it over and over for quotes to put on my walls and use in my Sunday School class. Simply-worded, this book is accessible to all ages and situations. It is sure to uplift and edify.
This book is wonderful! It is a quick read. I cried numerous times when I realized certain things while reading this book. I have an even greater love for my Heavenly Father and brother, Jesus, as my mind & heart was opened to a better understanding and appreciation of my life. I recommend to everyone!
I bought this book when I saw the cover. Little did I realize how much it would help me. This book covers the attributes Christ had that made him happy and how we can obtain them. I personally loved how the Mr. Ogden used his experiences from life as well as quotes from scriptures and from modern prophets to help anyone come to understand how to be truly Happy Like Jesus.
I suggest picking this book up for anyone struggling to find real joy in their lives. The "Be Long-Suffering" section is my favorite. A great read for teens and adults alike.
