Who is Joy?
I ask myself this often, taking inventory of who I was, who I am, and who I am becoming. But today, for the part of me that would interest you…
I am a highly sensitive woman who has a gift of connecting to people most often through their pain. Whether the pain is depression, insecurity, confusion, or anxiety, I have been there, felt it, and lived through it…repeatedly. And each time, it’s a little different, with its twists and turns, teaching me how to adapt.
I have experienced the joys and pains of childrearing; thank God that’s been more joy than pain. My girls are such blessings to me; my night and my day. One keeps me grounded while the other helps me fly. As much as I have been their mother, I have also been their student; teaching them and learning from them all at the same time.
I have been through marriage, divorce, marriage again, separation, marriage somewhat, and now divorce…again. And by God’s grace, I have continued to grow as a Christian and as a woman. By His grace I am stronger, wiser, more resilient, and independent. I have learned how to love, lose, and love more. I have learned how to be more of who I want to be, was meant to be, and have learned to put nothing and no one above my Creator.
My gifts of listening, analyzing, and giving encouragement enable me to be a great coach and an caring friend. I have a lifelong interest in health, with nearly 20 years of experience in the health care industry, and a renewed focus on wellness. My desire and purpose is to help people, particularly women, who need emotional and spiritual healing, need to improve their physical and mental health, and need a little or a lot more happiness. Serving God in this way is one of my greatest privileges and pleasures and I hope to be a blessing to you today.
So as you browse my blog, I hope you find something that resonates with you and you let it permeate your soul or your spirit in order to nourish and heal you and maybe even enlighten and uplift you.
