Author D. Kelly Ogden says, "In order to achieve eternal life, the kind of life our Father and our Savior live, you must learn to avoid evil. In fact, if you reverse evil (spell it backwards), you have 'live.'" In the new book Happy Like Jesus, readers take a closer at the Savior's personality, his character traits, his teachings, and his behavior— how he acts. "We will look to him," says the author, "and try to become like him, so we may live." Chapters include "Be Happy," "Be Holy," "Be Humble," "Be Prayerful," "Be Disciplined," "Be Loving," "Be Forgiving," "Be Persevering," and more. Selling points:
• A short, inspirational gift book that is filled with stories and doctrinal insights that will enlighten and uplift.
• Features seventeen short chapters focusing on characteristics that reflect the life and teachings of Jesus Christ.
