Michelle was the sweetest person. She put her heart and soul into this book and has a passion for teaching others about God and His love for us. The book is meant for young readers who want to find lasting joy. In Happy Heart, the character feels empty and tries to fill that void in his heart with many different things. He tries, sports, money, fame, and friends but nothing seems to last. He feels sad after each one of those things comes to an end.
Finally, the Heart finds true joy in Jesus and His word. This book is meant for children but it pricked my heart. I look for joy in so many things. The only One who can give me lasting joy is Jesus. No matter where I go or what I do, He is the only One who is there for me no matter what. His love is the greatest. His love is everlasting.
At the end of the book are several bible verses to guide you in your walk to find true joy. She ends her book with a prayer to accept Jesus and the joy only He can bring to your life. No matter your circumstances, He is always there with you.
