Joy is wife to James, momma to four under the age of five, erstwhile graphic designer, and occasional bookworm. She graduated from East Tennessee State University in 2006 with a BA in English and History. In her sliver of spare time, you’ll find her deep into her favorite books, or scrapping. A military brat, Joy has lived all over the United States. She currently calls the Appalachian Mountains home. A piece of her heart is left in Pakistan, where she spent a brief time doing mission work. She has recently added a new job description: second generation homeschooling mama, as she was home schooled herself and is now starting kindergarten and first grade with her two oldest boys. You can find her musings and confessions along the journey at Life in the Making.

Joy’s first contribution to this blog will amaze everyone! She has put together the most amazing index of all our commentary on patriocentricity and soon it will be available for all of us to use and for those who wander in here and don’t know where to begin researching this topic. Three cheers for Joy!!!
