Joyful Living is a mindset. It is an attitude. It is not a sum total of all the choices that you make. It is a sum total of your reaction to all of the choices made by you and those around you. You can choose to rise above those choices and their consequences, and live a life of joy, or...

What is Joyful Living?

Joyful Living is ALL about waking up everyday and feeling gratitude and thankfulness.

Joyful Living is ALL about choosing to NOT allow your circumstances determine who you really are.

Joyful Living is ALL about living your one and only life in the best way possible.


shhh....want to know a secret?

Joyful living is not about sweeping everything around you under the carpet and pretending it doesn't exist. 

It's not just for women who have everything they ever wanted or dreamed of having.

It's not something that you can buy. It's not just for people who have it all together.

Joyful living IS all about learning how to become your best self. The self that loves what you see in the mirror and loves all life has to offer.

From the mundane to the exciting in ALL aspects of your life. From hanging in the kitchen, self care, budgeting your money, planning your day to day activities, and going on vacation.

Learn how to live the life you want.

Grab ahold of a life you love.

Hey there!

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 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 - 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.

Life is like a story... written 1 page at time.
