Is comparison living hijacking your life? Do you find yourself measuring your value against your friend's house, body, marriage, resume, paycheck, organic garden, or Pinterest-worthy holiday decor, and coming up lacking? Do your college roommate's Instagram snapshots bear little resemblance to the scene at your house this morning? Excessive comparison and competition sap our energy and steal our joy. Our friends become our audience and judges, and our kids become part of our brand. Add social media's constant invitation to post and peruse, and it's no wonder that we're left exhausted, discontent, and lonely. Thankfully, there is another way. With refreshing candor and humor, Kay Wills Wyma shares her experiences with comparison living and offers listeners the simple remedies that helped her and her family reboot their perspective and discover freedom, authenticity, and joy.

Quotes & Awards

  • [T]he production values are high and the listen enjoyable. Library Journal Audio Review
  • “Kay Wyma has managed to address what we’re all dealing with on a daily basis—the ability to instantly compare our life to someone else’s with just a mere look at our phone. There we can see all the ways we are failing to be the best mom, the best wife, the best friend…and the list goes on. In the pages of I’m Happy for You, Kay offers insight into why we do this and how we can stop the cycle. If you’re looking to live a life of contentment and authenticity and to be okay when your kid is the C student and not the valedictorian, you’ll find comfort and realistic solutions in the pages of this book.”

    Melanie Shankle, New York Times bestselling author of Sparkly Green Earrings

  • I’m Happy for You is honest and funny, while tackling a serious problem that is stealing our joy: comparison. Kay creatively uses stories and personal confession to reveal the pitfalls of comparing, while offering a solid ladder—built on godly wisdom—to help us climb out of that pit. I wish I could pass this book on to every woman who has worn herself out trying to achieve unrealistic standards. There’s freedom on these pages.”

    Jennifer Dukes Lee, author of Love Idol

  • “Kay Wyma hit a home run on the Focus on the Family radio program when she talked about ways moms can combat the entitlement mentality in their kids. In her new book, she scores another hit with an insightful discussion of the pitfalls of comparing your life to others, especially through social media. Her advice is timely and relevant.”

    Jim Daly, president of Focus on the Family

  • “For years I’ve said ‘Comparison is the kiss of death of gratitude.’ Whether we stroll the shopping malls, thumb through catalogs, shop online, or inadvertently compare ourselves to others, we are imperceptibly overwhelmed with longings to be like someone else, to have something else, believing it somehow enhances our identity. The pursuit of bigger, better, newer, and more never stops. With a compelling lilt, Kay Wills Wyma’s pen pulls us along only to expose and confront our comparison battle. From one co-struggler to another, Kay brings us perspective and relief.”

    Dr. Michael Easley, former president of Moody Bible Institute
