A Young Man's Guide to a Contented Life
Paperback. 223 Pages
Behind their brave and independent exteriors young men are searching for answers. Without counsel how can they find the path that leads to inner joy and lasting contentment?
Practical Happiness: A Young Man's Guide to a Contented Life offers such counsel. Through short, captivating stories, Bob Schultz has crafted a book to lead young men toward a life of contentment that can only be found by seeking the heart of God. Bob writes with a homespun wisdom born out of experience as well as a quest for a closer walk with God. His goal is to help young men chart a smooth course through life by addressing areas of faith, character, and subtleties of attitude that must be adjusted in order to direct them on the path to inner joy and lasting contentment.
True happiness is not found in money, power, or fame. It is a precious gift from God, available to all who learn to hear His voice and obey His calling. Practical Happiness will light a fire in the hearts of young men, leading them to a life of personal fulfillment as they draw closer to God.
Practical Happiness is an excellent read-aloud book for fathers and sons or the whole family. Questions at the end of each chapter make great discussion starters.
What Others Are Saying
I have been reading this book and then visiting the corresponding bible text with my two sons each evening. They enjoy the stories and understand the undrelying lesson. It has been a great addition to our teaching and mentoring of our sons.

These short chapters pack a punch. Very winsomely written, not just loading you up with "expectations". Feels like your favorite uncle giving you the inside angle. Wish I could have met Mr. Schultz while he was alive.
