Joy: It is an Inside Job

In this heartfelt, engaging talk, Julia Cook shares what it’s taken her years to figure out. Happiness is momentary, but Joy is a constant state of contentment that is not shifted by the chaos around us. Through stories and practical steps, Julia teaches us how to shift our thinking and actions so that we can:

• Move from looking for temporary happiness to finding long-term joy
• Develop a process for self-care that inhibits burnout and compassion fatigue
• Inspire our children to find their own inner joy

Joy is the magic that shifts perspectives and helps us maintain passion and purpose, even in the hard seasons. Joy is the gift that keeps on giving…to you and everyone around you. In this special talk from Julia, you’ll laugh, you’ll cry…and you’ll leave with a plan for growing in joy, finding new perspectives in your parenting journey, and supporting your children in nurturing joy.
