9781439231906: Be Happy

Be Happy is a touching memoir that pulls the reader in from the first to last page. Horace Jacobs tells his painful, fascinating, and finally joyful story of growing up and discovering the power of God’s Word and prayer. Living a life of poverty, the boy found the means to go forward, despite a drunken and brutal father and the early death of his beloved mother. Life in the slums held little hope or comfort for him. Then, as a teenager, he found work on a farm owned by a family who took him in and cared for him. Following the attack on Pearl Harbor, Horace joined the U.S. Navy and found an adventurous life in Brazil. After the war, marriage and fatherhood were accompanied by a devastating struggle against advanced tuberculosis, an illness that isolated him from his wife and child for many years. All this hardship led to a turning point of spiritual awakening that would define the very purpose of his life, point him to his highest calling and mold him into a man of dignity and honor.

About the Author:

Horace Jacobs was born in Louisville, KY in 1920. He grew up in an area called “The Point” on the banks of the Ohio River. After a difficult childhood filled with hunger and abuse, Jacobs found a new way of life in his teen years working on a family farm in nearby Brandenburg, KY. At the start of World War II, Jacobs enlisted in the U.S. Navy and served until his honorable discharge at the end of the war in 1945. Shortly after returning home to Louisville and marrying, Jacobs discovered he had an advanced case of tuberculosis. During five long years of treatment, he experienced a spiritual conversion which lead him to a fulfilling life in the service of God. Jacobs is now 88 years old and lives in central Florida. As his fishes on the banks of a small river near Lake Okeechobee, he is reminded of the words of one of his favorite hymns, “Every day with Jesus is sweeter than the day before.”
