Joseph Smith declared, “Happiness is the object and design of our existence; and will be the end thereof, if we pursue the path that leads to it.” What is that path, and how do we attain happiness in this life and in the life to come? In Living after the Manner of Happiness, well-known gospel scholar Ed J. Pinegar delves into the answer the Prophet Joseph provided: “This path is virtue, uprightness, faithfulness, holiness, and keeping all the commandments of God.” Discover contemporary application of these eternal principles through discussion of topics ranging from the pitfalls of passing judgment to the danger of competition and contention to the blessings of fostering patience and peace. Drawing upon the words of Church leaders and sacred scripture, this volume affirms that we have the power within ourselves to harness happiness and live a truly joyful life.
