What People are Saying About This

Rick Warren

“In this wonderful book Father Jonathan Morris explains exactly how God, through the Word of truth, the grace of Jesus Christ, and the power of the Holy Spirit, can transform your life in ways that no self-help book can do. Read this book and begin the journey of transformation.”

James Martin

“Father Jonathan Morris’s inviting, accessible, and personal new book is a reminder of an overlooked truth: faith leads to joy, ... show[ing] us why joy is the surest sign of God’s presence in our lives.”

Keith Ablow

“Father Jonathan Morris has love in his heart for every human being, including every person lucky enough to read his powerful new book. Here is a plan for making God your partner in seeking the life you deserve, filled with happiness, hope and success.”

Timothy M. Dolan

“My friend Father Jonathan Morris elaborates with color and care the mysterious balance between our work and God’s grace, and the welcome result could open up a new section in our bookstores: God’s self-help programs.”

Glenn Beck

“Father Jonathan understands that your true self is connected directly to God. When you honor that connection, you honor Him and the result nothing short of miraculous. I’ve seen it happen in my own life and, with this book, it can happen in yours.”

Bill O'Reilly

“The path to happiness and a just life is complicated. Father Morris offers a way forward that people of faith will find refreshing and relevant.”

Father Morris has good examples from his life experiences and those of others. Good explanation of how scripture aids in healing and sets forth guidelines. Why we should be happy and how to get your life on track with Faith, Hope and Love.

I had seen the author on TV as a guest speaker on current events and was curious to see how he measured up as a writer. The book is not the typical feel good book but is a rather insightful journey for the soul.

I had read Father Morris's first book and liked it. This book is so good my Sunday Scool class is using it as our current book study. It is written in such a way that we are truly enjoying it to study but also find it provokes thought that leads to good discussion. It is a joy to read on a personal level and equally great to share. It is comforting to have Father Jonathan with us as we study.
