Maghon Taylor's Definition of Happy Hand Lettering
I believe that God uses little things in life to bring us joy. I have no doubt God is an artist! He didn’t have to use all the pretty colors for flowers, but aren’t you so glad He did? And a sunset, those beautiful pinks, blues, that orange! All the many blues of the ocean... I could go on, but you get the point. There are thousands of examples in nature where God added color because He was probably like, “Hey, this looks like fun!” He uses ordinary things like our handwriting to bring us joy. And not only to us, but to the people we encounter. These ordinary things are most certainly gifts when we choose to celebrate them and see them this way.
You don't have to have good hand writing to have Happy Hand Lettering.
Hand lettering is a happier version of ordinary handwriting. Hand lettering is more intentional, more embellished, more fun, and more creative. Hand lettering is a lot more like drawing than it is writing. Hand lettering elevates ordinary handwriting from drab to fab.

If you moved in next door to her she would be the type of person to bring you a lasagne to welcome you to the neighbourhood - you just know it. She's happy, she's kind and she's a good Christian.
There are a lot of tips and exercises to get the most of your hand lettering practise and the book is a joy to hold. My only criticism is the fact that half way through reading the book I wondered if this was a practical hand lettering book - or a book about God. Maghon speaks freely about her beliefs - which is absolutely fine- but they are not everyone's beliefs. The book is littered with bible verse and references to God and to be honest it left me a little disappointed.
I wanted to read up about hand lettering - not religion and whatever your beliefs are, I don't think it's right to try and impose them on other people. If it wasn't for this, the review would give 5 stars.
