In 1998, Pamela Gail Johnson of Lewisville, Texas started the Secret Society of Happy People (SOHP). Johnson claims 7,000 official members and has a website, www.sohp.com. Traffic on the website is up since the downturn in the economy.
Her basic premise is simple and very biblical. “If your basic needs are met, happiness is not about money.” Does that sound familiar?
