As a wife, mom, grandmother, blogger and business owner I know what it's like to juggle ALL. THE. THINGS. The overwhelm is real and it is sometimes hard to find the purpose at the end of the day, let alone feel joyful.
My goal is to encourage you to rise above what is happening around you and your circumstances. So that you are able to choose joy...everyday.
My topics range from budgets for women, non-toxic everything, living a life of gratitude, how to choose joy...and everything in between.
You can find out more about me and why I do what I do right HERE.
I just want to thank you for showing me that it's possible to reach this stage in life and still be not just viable but vibrant! So many of the things I read in your blog echo what has been in my heart for a few years. I've thought so many times that life is a book that we are constantly writing. I feel like this stage in my life is like the last section of the book and I want to make it amazing.
In your blog I see joy, inspiration, creativity, beauty, health, reflection… all anchored in faith. Yep, those are the important things-the things I want to see more balanced in my life. Don't ever doubt that you are inspiring and making a difference.
I’ve known her since I was 13 and even then she was crafty, making clothes and being creative. Like a fine wine she keeps getting better with age. Love her.
I am so excited to have found you and your blogs!! I don’t know if I ever told you this to your face, but you were one of the two people that I admired the most!! You’re an amazing person and just have so much knowledge and spunk! Nancy
This was such a beautiful post. Having gone through many trials in the past 3 years, it was a beautiful reminder that God is my shepherd and will never leave or forsake me. Thank you for sharing.
What a thought provoking, peace inducing article. Thank you for the insight and reminders. Susan
I really enjoy your blog. My favorite post is your craft room tour because for me that is craft room goals. Not so much in the size but just how everything is so well organized. I enjoy all your posts though and love how you share your faith and try to inspire others.
Knowing how chapters can sometimes unfold messily, I wanted to create a place where I can share my own life’s journey with my lifestyle blog for women - including all the things that I love AND all the things that I have learned. We can then fearlessly tackle this road called life....together. And hopefully the ending of YOUR story is one of victory...loaded with joy.
I love life and all that it has to offer. I love to laugh and have fun. I think that the glass is ALWAYS half full and very rarely empty. I Choose Joy...everyday. Because why would I want to live any other way? If you're ready to choose joy in your life, my Joyful LIving blog is perfect for you!
I have been married for 40 years…to the same man. Together, we’ve navigated all kinds of life and still smile at one another when we wake up every morning.
Willy retired and I became a blogger!
I have raised 4 children - All are grown and 3 are married. I love being a mom and all that goes with it.
We see them as much as we can and treasure every moment that we do.
I am a follower of Jesus. Everything I do and write about is filtered thru the lens of His love and redemption.
Through Jesus I came to understand that my past does not define who I am. I also found out that I am loved, worthy and definitely enough.
I love to laugh and dress up in costumes. The crazier the costume the better.
I am also known for my loud and crazy laugh.
I am a big time crafter. Currently I am into paper crafting and card making.
You will find me in my crafting creating ALL kinds of things.
I am obsessed with cats - especially lap cats. But my little doggie, Jax, is the best thing that has ever happened to my husband (and me of course).
I became the queen of budgeting when we only got paid 4 times a year. I also used to be a budget counselor.
My heart, and one of my passions is this - I would like every women to know and understand money.
