Simple Secrets to a Happy Life – A Real Treat

It was a real treat to read Luci Swindoll’s book “Simple Secrets to a Happy Life”.  In the book, Luci shares with her readers 50 ways to make the most of every day.  The book is divided into five areas: Beginning with the Basics, Developing Your Style, Achieving Balance, Living the Good Life and Staying Connected.

Taking a play from her Mother’s handbook, each chapter begins with an imperative verb and the title is five words long.  The chapters are short, but filled with some good thoughts to ponder and actions to take such as: Make Something with Your Hands; Find Contentment in Doing Without; Establish Integrity in Your Life; Get Doctrine Under Your Belt; and Forgive Others Over and Over. 

I found it quite enjoyable to read one or two chapters in the evening.  Luci talks about things she was taught as a child that have served her well, which she continues to do to this day and the lessons she has learned over 79 years.  She’s open and transparent and shares about her successes and failures, and how she enjoys life.

In “Simple Secrets to a Happy Life” you get a feel for who Luci Swindoll is; a woman who loves the Lord, her family, friends and life.  She seems purposeful and intent on living with integrity, developing lifelong friendships and making the most of this gift called life. 

I highly recommend “Simple Secrets to a Happy Life” by Luci Swindoll.  This is a book you will want to read again and share with your friends.

When staying at the Back Bay Inn you may find some peace and quiet.  Just looking at this picture brings me back to that peaceful place...
