Happiness is not something you achieve once and for all. Happiness is a muscle, a skill, a way of being that can and must be exercised. This book is the distillation of Dr. David McDonald's professional work as a clergyman, professor, and executive coach, a library of theological and psychological books, and his own personal application and development of the material.
