I want to serve others. I believe that there is a difference between happiness and joy. Happiness is fleeting, and can be given and taken, but joy is something that is not altered. It exists deep within the human, under layers of sadness and hopelessness. It is what gets people up in the morning. It cannot be changed by experience or heartache, suppression or pain.
The joy that God has blessed me with inspires me to make the most out of every day. I want to help people discover their own joy that is hidden deep within them. Psalm 30:11 says, “You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy.” I want to help turn people’s wailing into dancing and to clothe (and shoe) them with joy.
