I’m Happy For You

I’m Happy For You (Sort of…..Not Really):  Finding Contentment in a Culture of Comparison

Author:  Kay Wills Wyma
Publisher:  WaterBrook Press

Pages:  231

Have you ever found yourself struggling to stay content when everyone around you seems so perfect?  Kay Wills Wyma writes in her new book, I’m Happy For You, a topic that have affected all of us at one time or another:  comparison.  In a world, where we can compare and be compared by just one click of the mouse, unhappiness is never too far away.  Ms. Wyma writes from her own experiences of learning how to deal with the comparison-crazed society and shares with us her experiences and also shares the insights she has gained from her children as she has navigated them through their own experiences with comparison. 

One of the golden nuggets of insight that Ms. Wyma shares is how God made us not for isolation but to be in community with one another.  I thought this was such an important statement to make because comparison has a tendency to create isolation from others.  Ms. Wyma also makes the point that God made us unique for a purpose; to help/make a difference in one another’s lives. 

I thoroughly enjoyed this book.  Ms. Wyma writes honestly and is encouraging.  I would recommend this book to anyone who struggles with finding contentment or who needs encouragement on their road to contentment.
