For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone. Audrey Hepburn
Hello, and welcome to my blog! I am a wife, a mom, and a writer who lives in Georgia, in the U.S.A.
I love my God, my family, girlfriends, adventures, and worthy causes. My husband of more than three decades and I have raised a daughter and a son together, both of whom are now married and on their own.
My Mama told me more than a few times in the last decade of her life that I should’ve been named Joy instead of Joan. Perhaps that’s because she saw me always looking for inspiration that might encourage and bring joy to others as well as myself. Adopted at age three, Mama was forever grateful for the family who snatched her up from an orphanage in Mississippi. My Mama is the one who taught me to be continually grateful, to keep a prayerful heart, and to keep an eye out for joy at every turn in the road ahead.
My hope is that you will find something here that will inspire you, encourage you, and help you to learn.
