I am so glad you are here. I am Joy, the author here at JoyForney.org. Be welcome and stay awhile. This is a place to talk about Christ, amazing grace, messy motherhood, learning to be a godly wife, brokenness, life overseas, and savoring the everyday sacred in the midst of it all.


Here are some favorite posts, so you can get to know me a bit better:

 Want to know more about me? Read on.

I am a wife of a missionary pilot with MAF {Mission Aviation Fellowship}, and we have been serving for the last 8 years on a little island in Indonesia. We are currently on furlough in the States, and are planning to move to the beautiful country of Uganda in early March 2014.

I am the proud mama to 5 beautiful kids, all of whom make it worth getting out of bed each day.

I live an adventure of a life that I never would have dreamed and most days would never give up. The days I would give it up are those when we find a python like this near our yard. Yeah.

I am as vile a sinner as you have ever met, and truly but for the grace of God go I. More than anything I want to glorify the Lord in and through my life, and through this blog. I can promise you that I will get it wrong.  But, thankfully, HE and His Word never will.  ”May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be pleasing to you, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.” Psalm 19:3-4
