The right book at the right time can be life changing. Resisting Happiness is that book.

We all know the things that will make us happy, but we don’t always do them. Why? We’re resistant. With his signature combination of the profound and the practical, New York Times bestselling author Matthew Kelly helps you learn 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. Resisting Happiness will inspire you to break through resistance so you can become the-best-version-of-yourself and start living with passion and purpose.

This study guide is designed to accompany Dynamic Catholic’s 2017 Best Lent Ever program. Daily videos from Matthew Kelly and Dynamic Catholic team members provide incredible insights and personal reflections on the chapters of Resisting Happiness that will enhance your group’s experience with the book.
