In a world that constantly challenges our inner peace with its array of struggles, the latest episode of "Invitation2Freedom" casts a beacon of hope on the incredible power of choice. Lisa Phillips and Marie Johnatakis, along with Taylor Johnatakis, unpack the notion that happiness isn’t just an emotion but a conscious choice we can make.

Taylor, despite being incarcerated and finally sentenced to 87 months, embodies the concept of choosing happiness and illuminates the path for others, even in suffering.
