The Joyful Life by Margaret Sangster

The Joyful Life by Margaret Sangster


Margaret Sangster has helpful exhortations for young women to live a Godly life. “Each chapter of this book is a simple and friendly talk . . . and the author’s aim has been to suggest something helpful . . . [for] our happiness and usefulness.” Her advice includes: “If one can but take whatever comes as part of God’s plan, and not as the happening of a blind chance, one will be surer of content. A plan of God in every life, and life joyfully lived in accordance with God’s plan, is a good formula for true happiness.” Also: “One of the most successful recipes for curing the blues, no matter what the source, is to engage actively in some work outside one’s self.”
