I am Joy Forney and I created Grace Full Mama to be a place where you can come to be inspired by the big vision of motherhood. A place where together we can look for the glorious in the mundane. It is a place where you will find encouragement, inspiration, and grace for your own life as you seek to be the mother that God has made you to be.
More than anything, I want to offer you encouragement. When you are weary, worn out, stretched thin, I want this to be a place where you can come to find a little shot in the arm, a little dose of refreshment. We all fail.
Not one of us has it all together. It is a place where we can hold to high ideals, but live in real realities. And where those two meet, that is where we can join together. We live on an island in Indonesia, which is a country made up of islands. It is a tropical 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’m Joy and I am the proud wife of an amazing missionary pilot. He is my knight in shining armor. I am the proud mama to 5 beautiful kids, all of whom make it worth getting out of bed each day….
Check out her site. She is honest, funny, authentic and living an adventure. I lived in the jungle for 6 months in Papua New Guinea (right next to Indonesia) helping a missionary family that was helped by mission pilots like her hubby. It is an awesome job, but scary in such wild places. Thanks Joy for your ministry and your uplifting, honest words.
