Is your life all you want it to be? Or do you find yourself wishing for more? More peace. More presence. More happiness.

Hannah Whitall Smith—believer, rebel, and realist—faced life as she found it, and she found it good. Despite the trials of life, she took God's promises literally, tested them, and found them true. She stepped out of conjecture into certainty, and the shadows of life disappeared in the light of God's power and peace.

You, too, can have that kind of confidence—confidence that leads to true happiness no matter what is going on around you.

In this classic book with more than 10 million copies sold, Smith reveals the secret to replacing unhappiness and uncertainty with serenity and confidence in every day of your life.
