The Joy Of Our Birth

It’s hard to believe it’s been almost 9 months!

I remember the joy of when it was first conceived. I could see God’s hand uniting us as one and graciously answering a prayer that we hadn’t even asked yet!

Now, as we approach 9 full months, we can look back and see the way in which God grew our hearts and our minds to embrace the ups and downs of this precious time.


Highs and lows created swells of emotions like the waves of the sea. Moments of uncertainty followed by complete joy kept us anchored in Jesus. Stepping out of the boat in faith drew us closer to Him as He reached out His hand to keep us afloat.

In September of 2015, was born; our baby is almost 9 months old! We have watched it grow beyond our wildest dreams and it’s all because of faithful followers like you! We have shared “our baby” with you so that you could experience the joy of the Lord along with us each and every day. (as we affectionately call it) has been blessed by millions of amazing readers across the globe. We have cried with you, laughed with you, been encouraged by you and yes, even wondered, “Are you still there?”

God has richly blessed this ministry and continues to remind us that we are doing what He called us to do. It has not been easy and there have been times of doubt and frustration but we stayed the course and prayed for each “next step” of faith. is continuing to grow and we want you to be a part of the experience. We work hard to always be a place that brings joyful news to everyone’s day. Even more than that, we want to hear from you and we hope you will stop by and say, “Hello!” to Team JoyWe want to know how God is blessing you through We love to hear the stories and testimonies of His great Love.
