Happy Today


Hello, Friends!  Our year of reading, discussing, and praying using Jesus Calling as our guide is coming to an end on July 31, 2021.  All posts from August 1, 2020- July 31, 2021 are based on Sarah Young's Jesus Calling.

We have a new 52-week adventure starting the week of August 1, 2021: Max Lucado's Happy Today guided journal.  It is based on his book How Happiness Happens.  You don't have to read it to participate in the journalling: we won't be discussing it.  However, please feel free to read it if you'd like!

The reason I chose this book is because of a scripture we read earlier on June 17th:

"She is clothed with strength and dignity;
    she can laugh at the days to come."
Proverbs 31:25

This passage intrigued me: I want to be that lady!

I started searching for a guided journal about joy, contentment, or happiness, and I found Happy Today and liked it. 

The book is divided into six-week sections.

Each week includes a lesson, scripture, and questions to answer.

This is how this discussion will work:  I will post the scripture and the main topic of discussion on Monday of each week.  Then on Friday, we'll share our thoughts about the week's lessons.  We can share prayer requests on both semiweekly posts.  

NOTE:  The first post will be on Monday, August 2!  

I hope you'll join us!
