Doll-votions!: A Joyful Heart

Proverbs 17:22

“A Joyful heart is good medicine but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.”

Sometimes it’s hard to have a joyful heart, like when you didn’t get your way or when you get hurt. God wants us to have a joyful heart no matter what! Guess what? When you have a joyful heart you help others have a joyful heart too! Here are some ways to have a joyful heart and help others : When your sister or brother gets hurt make up a silly story! When your dad had a rough day at work give him a BIG hug! When your mom is tired, watch your siblings! There are so many things you can do!

Make sure you always have a joyful heart not just to be happy but to show the  light and love of God!
