Overview

Like a wise and loving friend, renowned LDS speaker and author Lucile Johnson shares a lifetime of insights in a book that uplifts and enlarges the spirit. Through personal anecdotes she explores the importance of nurturing hope and happiness in each stage of our lives-regardless of the circumstances that surround us. No stranger to illness, misfortune, loss, and heartbreak, Lucile shares what it takes to survive the most difficult times and come away with increased grace and strength. Each of us can do the same, and it's a little easier once we catch a glimpse of our purpose in mortality.

That We Might Have Joy shows that our lives are "a rich milieu of light and shadows, mountains to climb and seas to swim, pinnacles of success and seasons of work and pain, answers to prayers and moments when answers are withheld" that has been designed to help us define who we really are. The promise that will gladden our hearts and enrich the rest of our experience is simple yet profound: "If hope and happiness have been guiding forces during our time on earth," says the author, "we will view eternity with joyful anticipation."
