Honestly, when I opened this book I was expecting something like all the other marriage books I’ve read. But my cynicism was quickly beaten down. Making Happy by Les and Leslie Parrott approaches happiness in marriage from a different angle: Marriage isn’t supposed to make you happy. It’s supposed to make you draw closer to God.
We tend to think that getting married will make our life perfect, but soon after the honeymoon we discover that our spouse is…human! Where did the happiness go? Well, are you bringing it? Making Happy discusses what happiness really looks like, how to find that for yourself, and then how to put that happiness to work building a stronger marriage.
I can’t wait to try out the “3 week Happiness Plan”!
