    This book is full of lots of practical tips to overcome laziness and learn to be more free and self-disciplined, always with the end in mind- striving for holiness and doing God's will!...

    It came in the mail today and I started it and found I couldn't put it down and just finished it. I suppose that there was nothing earth-shattering here, but it was all good wisdom that I longed to hear said out loud, at least in my head as I read the words. I needed the encouragement and direction ...

    The subtitle of this book is "A True Story about Why We Sabotage Ourselves, Feel Overwhelmed, Set Aside Our Dreams, and Lack the Courage to Simply Be Ourselves... and How to Start Choosing Happiness Again" and that is quite a mouthful. But having read a number of Matthew Kelly's books over the last ...

    Uplifting and inspiringI really liked how he interwove his personal story with the points he was trying to make on how we resist our own happiness. It really made me think on the many ways I had resisted my own happiness and had not realized it. Highly recommended....

    A decent little self-help book, with some Catholicism thrown in. It isn't tremendously great writing, but some really good nuggets of practical truth....

    Totally disappointed. I have always enjoyed his writing. I have found inspiration in his words during some dark times in my life. I think he needs to step away from his work and find his true voice, because the one in this book is tired. I'll always read his books- too bad this one is such a flop....

    A short, simple walkthrough with reflections that are helpful for many people. A huge turn off again, as is a turn off often with Kelly's work, is the shameless self-promotion that is two advertisements mid-book, and several plugs for himself and his company in the name of teaching other Catholics h...

    At Christmas Eve mass this year, my church was kind enough to gift a copy of this book to all parishioners. I'll admit, upon receiving the book as we were leaving church, I had no intention of opening its pages. On the drive home, though, I started to read the back cover and immediately the message ...

    I cannot thank my brother Ed, enough, for gifting me with Resisting Happiness, by Matthew Kelly. This book was a real eye-opener for me! As human beings, we naturally resist happiness, and when we do so, we resist God, the source of all happiness. “Why do we resist God? Because deep down we don...

    I received this book as a Christmas gift from our parish. It was just what I needed to read during Lent. Each chapter inspired me to take a more active role in my relationship with God....
