Book Review: Chasing Happy

book review chasing happy

This not is an easy book to read. This book is probably not for everyone.

But it should be.

Ann Miller has done an outstanding job telling a difficult story. The issues are real,as are the struggles, and no one is helped by denying them or trying to sweep them under the carpet…or into the closet.

On the one we have a young man struggling with his sexuality. He seeks answers from many sources, but in the end finds an answer that fits him and his faith. And on the other, we have a young woman stuck in a faith that has been expected of her and she struggles to make it personal without losing everything that is precious to her.

In a world that seeks for a quick fix and easy answers this story invites us to be patient and faithful as we seek to find the wholeness God has for each of us.

I recommend this book especially to pastors and counselors who are dealing with folks struggling in these areas. I believe it would be a good discussion starter for small groups.

I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.

  1. Thanks, Tina, for a great review! You are so speedy, you beat the book’s launch date (September 1)! But it actually is available a little early. 🙂 Thank you!!!
