Arthur Brooks Knows How You Can Be Happy

How engaging with the full range of emotions builds resilience and ultimately leads to happiness.

“Happiness requires a lot of unhappy when you finally confront life in all of its complexities.”

Dr. Moore and Arthur C. Brooks, Harvard professor and author of the book From Strength to Strength, discuss how if you’re spending all of your time and energy trying to avoid unhappy, you will paradoxically avoid your own happiness by cutting the purpose and sacredness out of your life.

Addressing loneliness, mental health, relationship building and the struggles this current generation is facing, Brooks shares his ultimate hope for a new day for Christian evangelicalism and the way that Gen Z is going to save America by rebelling against the culture war, lead by love, not hate.
