A Book Review: Simple Secrets to a Happy Life by Luci Swindoll

Luci Swindoll’s wise truths, garnered over eighty years of joy-filled living, are Aesop’s Fables reinvented with a biblical perspective and an arsenal of personal anecdotes on how to enjoy everyday life. Whether she’s sharing a childhood memory or quoting scripture, Swindoll keeps her book approachable and relevant. Lighthearted, yet honest and direct, the author acts as a trusted friend lovingly doling out advice on how to build a life of integrity and achieve balance in a hectic world.

Organized into concise chapters, Swindoll challenges readers to apply timeless principles on relationships, attitude and integrity. Whether you’re a 20-something or a child of the 1950’s, it’s never too late to “create the kind of self you will be happy to live with all your life”. In a chapter titled “Cook Something Special for Yourself”, Swindoll quotes Wolfgang Puck. “Cooking is my kinderspiel, my child’s play. And while you are cooking, don’t forget to share and laugh. Laugh a great deal with much love, it enhances the flavor of the food.” It’s with this spirit Luci’s book of fables is written – “Work and play, but don’t forget to share and laugh, with much love. You will enhance the flavor of your life!”
