Joyce's Journey

  Girl on the Prairie -  2018

 Girl on the Prairie - Grandparents, Grace and Gopher Tails

 Challenges and treasured moments are collected in a girl's diary as she struggles to understand her strengths and weakness.  

Her warm relationships with her grandparents lead to an uplifting and humorous journey as she grows into a freckled face 

teenager. Later she realizes her struggles are overcome by her faith in God and the stability of her devoted parents and grandparents.

Not My Plan - a mother's unexpected journey   

     Joyce has traveled from grief to grace. Once a fearful woman, she became a supportive advocate for her daughter with special needs. 

If you are searching for an inspirational speaker, Joyce offers an uplifting and courageous journey as a young mother dealing with overwhelming challenges.  Amazingly, God unfolded his plan for her daughter.  Amy began to play the piano by ear at the age of  thirty-two months old. 

      Miraculously, Amy became a savant. 

     Joyce is an approved speaker for Women's Connections.  She has shared her inspirational journey to women's groups, schools, churches and Support Groups. If you would like to schedule her to speak for your program or next event, please contact her at  [email protected]
