“Happiness Is a Choice”

Rev. Frank Papandrea will speak to us about how unhappiness is the root of all problems, removing the wonderful ability to enjoy the week, day or hour. Joy is found in spite of life’s stresses, irritations and other people’s drama. But we must make deliberate choices, take risks and map changes to obtain and live a rewarding, purpose-filled lifestyle of love, joy, and peace.

Music: Tasha Robinson, harp
