Hi I'm Joyce

I was born in Jamaica. I settled in London and I love it! I volunteer at the Natural History Museum. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of a handsome son and grandmother to 2 teenagers. I like football, cricket, interviewing and music. My hobbies are gardening, thinking and swimming. Since a young age I fell in love with volunteer work, in which I was involved in roles such as secretary, bookkeeper, treasurer/ secretary/ chairman of cub scouts. I lived and worked in the United States for 7 months. About 1 year after returning back to Jamaica, I visited my friend in London and fell in love. I applied for leave from my work to pursue an admin course in England. I have since then worked at the Churchfield Surgery and Transport of London. I have now retired from those. The first 2 years of retirement I attended Kensington & Chelsea College and qualified in cookery and nutrition. The second 2 years I volunteered at The London Temple. I am now working at a Primary School in Westminster Borough, volunteering with the Age Concern and The Natural History Museum.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church of England and was confirmed at the age of 18. I met the missionaries in April 1985, when I went to visit my friend who was at the time having discussions with the missionaries. After hearing that God has a plan for us and as the missionaries taught that Plan to me I was overcome with peace and reassurance. I never looked back and was baptised one month later. I was one of three female pioneers who started The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Parish of Portland, Jamaica.

How I live my faith

In all that I do I try to be the best example I can. Because God has blessed me so much and I know that we are all children of God and he Loves us so much. I try to serve those who come in my path. I do all that I can to uplift and love those around me. I try to live the commandments Jesus Christ taught, which is " To the love the Lord thy God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind," and " to love your neighbor as yourself."
