In God Wants You Happy, Father Jonathan Morris replaces the
unsatisfying, fleeting solutions we receive from the New Age, self-help
industry with the simplicity and depth of authentic Christian
spirituality. In his work traveling the world for FOX News and in his
parish work in New York City, Father Jonathan could not understand
why people were choosing the vague and sometimes harmful advice of
the self-help gurus and ignoring the tested and true help the Christian
Church offers. He discovered that part of the problem was packaging:
people thought the church dealt only in sin and guilt and not help and
healing. But what if we re-framed God's good news in the same terms as
the self-help world?
Father Morris argues that self-help can only take you so far; what we
need is God-help. God Wants You Happy offers a life-long spiritual
program that teaches you how to open yourself up to God's loving
presence in order to become everything he created you to be—joyful,
flourishing men and women. In other words, God wants you to be happy.
Illuminated with biblical passages and filled with case studies and
exercises, God Wants You Happy helps you to:
- Open your mind and heart to the all-loving God who
wants to help and empower you.
- Work through the Faith-Hope-Love Cure to rid yourself
of self-destructive and self-limiting habits while forming
new habits for receiving grace, forgiveness, acceptance,
- Tap into the natural mechanisms of self-improvement
God has already put within you.
- Discover your divine mission.
A lifetime of happiness is at your fingertips and the Creator of
the Universe wants to help you achieve it.
