Talk Yourself Happy: Book Review

Talk Yourself Happy by Kristi Watts

This book was written by Kristi Watts, a former The 700 Club co-host, and to be completely honest, I've never watched a single episode of that show. Actually, I don't even know if that was a talk show or a religious show. I picked up a copy of this book for two reasons.

1.) The cover the book was enticing. Kudos to whoever designed it! It looks so cheery and happy.
2.) I was intrigued by the summary of the book: "Former co-host of The 700 Club Kristi Watts reveals the pitfalls that keep Christians from true joy and demonstrates the transformative power of speaking the words and promises of God." Weighty, right?

After her marriage dissolved, Watts left her high profile position at The 700 Club and struggled through what it meant to regain the joy. happiness and laughter she had a reputation for. She realigned her focus from her circumstances and started cultivating true happiness by using Biblical principles and relying on God to tame our tongues and train our minds.

Like I mentioned above, I didn't pick up this book because I was a "fan girl" or wanted an insider's perspective on Watts' life. I wanted to see if this book had more depth than the average "just read your Bible and pray for God's joy!" advice that's so readily given out during hard times. Overall, I thought this book was good. It had some depth, definitely a lot of inspiration and an absolutely wonderful reminder of God's faithfulness.
