Hello, fellow image-bearer of God! Thanks for making it to this page, and welcome to Joyful For Jesus. My name is Sarah Joy. And if you’re wondering if I based my domain on my name—I absolutely did.
As for who Sarah Joy is—I’m a twenty-(almost 30)-something who has big dreams and a big heart for Jesus to match. I’m enjoying navigating this world we live in the form of the written word.
I wear many hats, and sometimes all of them at the same time. Aside from blogging, I’m a Ph.D. student, Lay Minister, board member, avid reader, daughter, and friend. This means that I love my Bible and communicating with people, showing them that there is more to life than meets the eye.
This site is where I write about things that catch my interest as I travel through adulthood as a Christian, but also just as a young woman. Sometimes these things can seem small and irrelevant, like grabbing a cup of tea, letting someone take your seat on the subway, or even starting a new hobby. But I know that Jesus can be seen in every small interaction as much as in the big ones.
In a world where big headlines are news, sometimes we look for the miracles, but look over the steps in-between. We forget that the big miracles can’t happen without the practice of faith. And practice requires constant, sometimes grudging, day-to-day work.
So grab a tea, join me, and stay a while. Let’s work together and let iron sharpen iron. We can’t do it alone. Let’s re-shift our focus back to Christ.
