Joyful Spots tells the story of traits passed down through a family over generations, highlighting a living chain of meaning in new life. Rose models healthy emotional expression and connection. As our children’s minds are shaped by symbols and values, she wanted to create a positive alternative to harmful media by sharing her family’s joyful spots. Although their freckles skipped Rose’s face, she remembers them fondly on her grandmother and now enjoys seeing them on her children.
