Product Details
Are We Happy Yet?


We are used to psychologists, psychiatrists, and other "experts" offering advice
about how to be happy and how to live a fulfilling life. Even though the books
by these experts can be helpful, sometimes the best way to learn about life is from true stories. Although Love Each Day doesn't specifically tell people how to live a wonderful life, the authentic true stories nevertheless offer timeless lessons about enjoying life. The tapestry of true stories in our lives will always be invaluable.
From these stories we not only learn how people from different walks of life live, but also what is important to these individuals. Ultimately, this book inspires readers to spend time treasuring what really matters.

other people's lives and an opportunity to tap into our own life scripts. The touching
experience of each individual demonstrates that life is to be celebrated, shared,
and cherished."

"Should you live your life as if each day were your last? Love Each Day answers this question by showing us that 'living each day so you would want to live it again' is a much better formula for happiness. From famous individuals like Apollo astronaut Edgar Mitchell and professional baseball player Huston Street, to police officers, moms, and everyday people, Love Each Day inspires us with true stories from real life."
--Kenneth J.M. MacLean, author of

each day is another opportunity to bless and be blessed."
