Maybe you've felt hesitant to commit time, money or resources to something that brings you joy, because you’re afraid that if it’s not something you can market or can help others with, that it’s a waste of time. It’s not true. Joy may feel selfish, but it isn’t. It’s your heart’s response to God as a beloved child. He wants us to feel joy.

What gives you joy? Do you know? In this episode, Bonnie asks some great questions to help you figure out what gives you joy, and gives you permission to put resources toward pursuing it.

Scripture: “These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.” - John 15:11
