Joy is a grateful grace-dweller who weaves words out of the fabric of her days, penning poetry and prose in her PJs as she seeks the poetic in the prosaic and the eternal in the temporal.
As an M.E and chronic illness sufferer (who is also recovering from a painful past) she writes with a heart for the hurting and to support and encourage others who are struggling with life and faith issues.
She has had poetry published in various anthologies over the years and is author of ‘Seeking Solace: Discovering grace in life’s hard places’. Joy is also a monthly contributor to the Association of Christian Writers (ACW) ‘More than Writers’ blog and guest posts elsewhere.
Although housebound and unable to get to church, Joy finds online fellowship and friendship with like-minded writers, and she is strengthened and sustained by the practice of contemplative prayer. You can connect with her on Facebook or Twitter and find her writing her heart out at ‘Poetry Joy’ and ‘Words of Joy’.
