I grew up on a farm and my sister and I had childhoods full of four-wheeling, catching lightning bugs in old mason jars, and running outside barefoot until our feet were black with dirt!
I grew up going to a small Baptist church. I can remember from a very young age, praying to God and believing in Jesus with all my heart. It was at the age of 9 that I gave my life to Him.
I met my husband (Bryan) when I was 14 years old and knew I would marry him. We have two children and we live on a small farm in North Carolina. I hold a Doctor of Pharmacy degree and I teach pharmacy students.
One of the greatest joys in my life is having the opportunity to encourage women in their faith journey through Joytime Ministries. Whether it is through radio, social media, or an in-person event, I have a passion to meet women right where they are in life and bring them encouragement. I believe a little encouragement goes a long way!
I love Jesus and I thank Him for saving me. I love His Word and I seek to know it more fully and deeply. I hope you are blessed by stopping by my website!
“Faithful is He who calls you, and He will do it.” ~1 Thessalonians 5:24
Grateful for you,
Great testimony…Continue doing the good work
Wow!!! It is such a blessing to learn what God has been doing in yours and Bryan’s wonderful lives! It is a true honor to be able to say that I “grew up” with you and more of an honor to pass along your ministry for Jesus!
We will be looking forward to your concert and hopefully can get a chance to speak with you and Bryan.
You’ll be in our prayers for safe travel, abundant blessings and most of all God’s continued Favor upon your family’s lives! GOD IS SO GOOD!!!
Love to you all!

I met your husband today in Tucson, AZ. He and two other people came to do a survey for Gary Morgan. Could you please email me as I regretfully didnt get their names. He told me about your page. My email is email@example.com. Thx
A blessed Monday morning to you, Joy. I am the new associate minister at Unity UMC in Thomasville. It was a God moment meeting your husband Bryan at 1st Choice Automotive this morning. Our women at Unity just finished a Bible Study (Hard to Dance with the Devil on your Back) and was hoping that you might have some resources or events in mind to keep their faith journey going.
Have a blessed day

I’m embarrassed to say I have read your journey for the first time just now. Needless to say, you are an amazing person! I have known you since your birth but I am just realizing what an amazing, godly young woman you are. I recently found your radio broadcast while searching for a calming, relaxing station to help me soothe my anxieties. We all have times that we have so much to think about and decisions to make, especially as a woman. The songs, the scripture, words of encouragement are just the right combination to allay my feelings of anxiousness. Thank you, Joy.
