The character of Joy takes her cue from that which has been embodied by the people of God for centuries. We are a joyful people prompted by the stimulus of God's love, grace and presence among his people.
Joy loves Riley more than anything and has been her lead emotion since day one. She's lighthearted; a big fan of laughter, chocolate cake, and spinning until you get crazy dizzy and fall over.
Joy sees life's challenges as opportunities, and the sad bits as hiccups on the way back to something great. Hope and optimism dictate all of her decisions, and Joy works twice as hard as anyone else to make this happen. She just wants Riley to be happy. After all, isn't that the point of life?
