Happiest Place On Earth
Main Street

This morning starts our new series on the happiest place on earth. Ventura Lighthouse 805 will explore how we build a life of happiness founded in our faith in God and our relationship with Him; which lifts us beyond our circumstances and into something more. Main Street looks at the center of the Park from where all things connect and flow… just like our emotional self. How do we get stuck in a funk? How do we get out of it? Tune in….
