What does Joyful Courage mean to you?

So I think just, as my life as a mom, a business owner, a wife, I think it just means to really live life to the fullest, you know, having no fear and just being filled with joy with everything that you do, no matter what season, no matter what time in your life because it’s meant to be because it’s building me up to be the person God created me to be. So I’m just kind of going through life with that mantra.
