Joy isn’t always easy. There are some homes that attract kids like flies. Why? Their homes are full of such joy. They’re always laughing, playing, having fun, making life-moments almost daily. You know the place—a home where just about every time you’re there something happens you never forget. I wish my home was like that more often, don’t you? Unfortunately, the problems of life can get in the way of joy. Joy is happiness. Joy is surrounded by love and peace in the fruit of the Spirit. Find ways to make joy and happiness a regular part of your family life. It’s going to attract kids who crave what you have: Christ alone.
