Hi I'm Joyce

I am a mother, daughter, wife, student, and employee and I am a Mormon!!

About Me

I am mother of three sons that are grown and living good lives. I going to be a grandma in January. I am a wife, who just got married for the second time this year. I am full time student studying social work, I will specialize in addictions. I had personal experience with addictions and know that everyone deserves second and third chances. I love to read and spend time with my family. I enjoy sitting and talking with husband, we have a great time together. I love my life and the people in it.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member my whole life, but fell into addiction when I was in my twenties, and left the church. After hitting rock bottom and deciding that the things I had been taught in my youth was true. That God loves me, that Jesus died for me, and that we have a forgiving, loving, kind Father in Heaven waiting for me. I came back to church. I found that the love that God has for me in infinite and his mercy was ever so sweet. I found that I was never alone in my darkness hours and the days where my addiction took over my life, that there were people praying for me. I have been clean for 11 years but I have been clean living the gospel and the 12 steps for 7 years. My testimony means everything to me, everything I do, I do to show the Lord how grateful I am for my life and my family. I am grateful to know that God thinks and knows I deserved a second chances at the life he had intended me to have.

How I live my faith

I have had many opportunities to do services. My favorite is visiting with the ladies from our congregation and checking in on their welfare. I also serve in our women's organization. I love my community and am always looking for ways to provide a service that is needed. I am involved in a community center that provides for over 2000 children daily, and I serve as committee member for organization that helps with children who have cancer. I am a sponsor in NA. I am group facilitator for the churches 12 step group. I volunteer my time at the nursing home to visit with people who get no visitors. I find that by serving I am able to give back some of what was given to me.
