"Before Secrets of the Happy Soul, I would've told you our happiness isn't God's priority. Turns out I needed Katie Orr to help me understand what the Bible really has to say on this subject. We were made for a life of delight, and in this much-needed book, Katie uses her unique ability to help people like me pull back the veil to God's Word, and in the process, find the life God meant us to live."

"I don't write a lot of recommendations. When I read a book, I want to know that the author has been a good and faithful student, not of life but of God's Word. Katie Orr is that kind of person, that kind of friend, that kind of writer. Katie teaches us more than just what do to, but how and why, reminding us ever so tenderly that life in Christ isn't about doing better but being better--being a Happy Soul."
