“If you carry joy in your heart, you can heal any moment.” (Carlos Santana)

Over this past year, as the result of the pandemic, many of us may have questioned whether it was actually possible to find and experience joy, or anything even close to it. 😔

Stress has been on the rise, for adults, who have been working from home, while taking on new roles and responsibilities for their children’s academic needs, and also for our little ones, who have been away from their friends, their teachers, and their familiar surroundings for an extended period of time. 😟

So, how can we, both individually and collectively, spark joy, to lift our own and each other’s spirits during this time, so we can learn to be happier and more present in the moment, while also beginning to envision and create our post-pandemic world? ✨

Award-winning children’s author, Joy Resor, joins our John Masiulionis on Episode #109​ of The Empowered Publicity Children’s Books Spotlight Series to share her inspiring story, the release of her new children’s book, Designed to SHINE! Read Aloud Rhymes for Any Size Heart: Volume Two, how children’s books have helped to bring joy into the lives of little ones and the inner child within us all over this past year, words of encouragement and support for those who are feeling challenged to find joy in their lives amid the current climate, plus much more. 🤗📖
