There’s a common philosophy among parents that says, “I just want my kids to be happy!” On the surface, that sounds well and good, but when you dig deeper, you see that happiness is temporary, and chasing it will ultimately lead to disappointment. On the other hand, joy isn’t as fickle as happiness. Joy gives you a deep sense of satisfaction that is greater than happiness. When you have joy underlying your heart, when you experience pain and trouble there is still a sense that in the end, all will be well. In this episode, Dr. Meg talks with Shaunti Feldhahn, author of the book Find Joy: A Devotional Journey to Unshakable Wonder in an Uncertain World. In this devotional guide, Shaunti helps the readers understand that joy is a gift from God, and it’s something your great kids can experience when you teach them that joy is an intentional choice that will transform their hearts. This is a conversation that you just don’t want to miss!
