A mom asked her 4-year-old daughter what she thought was the secret to happiness. To her surprise, she received an answer that she wasn’t expecting.
Secret to Happiness
Angela Holm, a mother of three, wanted to know if her daughter Vienna, who is four years old, thought the secret to happiness was.
“Vienna, what is the secret to happiness?”
Without a second thought, Vienna said, “God.”
Angela was quite surprised upon hearing Vienna’s reply. She said, “I have never asked her this question before and was surprised and happy with her answer!”
Then, she followed up her question by asking Vienna, “How did you know?”
The young girl replied, “‘Coz I know about heaven.”

Vienna said that she learned all of this from church.
“Is there anything else?” Angela further asked. “Yeah, Jesus!” Vienna said.
Joy in Jesus
Angela tried to change the question, but Vienna’s answer remained unchanged. She asked, “Is money the secret to happiness?” “No,” Vienna said.
“Is having nice things the secret to happiness?”
Then, Vienna answered, “Yeah.”
Her mom clarified, “What kind of nice things?” Then, the little girl said, “Angels!”
Angela concluded, “Truly, nothing else is the secret to living with joy and happiness!”
Vienna is living proof of Matthew 18:3-5, which says, “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.”
Vienna is a perfect example of this truth!
