“ ‘Happy’ was not something that was a part of my life for a long time,” said Clairmont, a best-selling author and speaker for more than 35 years.

It’s part of the reason her new tour with contemporary Christian musician Sandi Patty is called Get Yer Happy On. The two women will stop at Millbrook Baptist Church, 223 S. Aiken Blvd. SE, Aiken, for an evening of inspiration on Saturday, May 5.

“I know that life is hard and the intensity can be overwhelming,” Clairmont said. “We thought, ‘Wouldn’t it be fun for just a couple of hours to get your happy on, to sing and to laugh?’ ”

Clairmont met Patty seven or eight years ago, when Patty, a Grammy Award-winning vocalist, sang at women’s conferences held by Women of Faith.

“She and I were instant buddies,” said Clairmont, 67. “She is great fun. She has tremendous amounts of energy. She’s like a child in a candy store when she has a new idea.”

The event features several surprises, including some unexpected songs from Patty, who in 2011 released her first secular album, a compilation of Broadway show tunes. Between songs, Clairmont will tell how she has learned to “get her happy on.”

“We have a lot of laughter. There’s something about singing that puts you in a better mood,” she said. “It’s a really nice thing to hear you’re not alone. To hear parts of my story will remind you that we all struggle. We want women to know there is a God who came for you and he has a long-term plan for your life.”
