Joyce Means Joyful

Where did your name come from?

Joyce is not a commin name. Therefore, I rarely have to use my last name as I’m often the only Joyce in the group. For most of my life, I didn’t like my name, I do now.

My father had a cousin named Joyce. I’m sure I wasn’t named after her. I think my parents randomly picked my name. But they didn’t realize that God had actually named me.

My life was a mess before I decided to follow Jesus’s narrow path.

I had bipolar and other issues that caused me to suffer deep depression. During these years, a Christian spoke a word from God. God named me Joyce as my life would be joyful.

That was hard for me to believe when I suffered deep depressions. Through faith, I held on to that word.

The following few years, God put Christans I my path who prayed for me, and I was healed from the bipolar and many other things that added to my depression. He also showed me that I was called to make artistic and whimiscal pottery.

When God speaks, we should listen and believe. My life is joyful and exciting, and I enjoy creating whimsical pottery.

My parents named me, but God had a bigger say in it.

Below are some of the pottery I have fun making

I made this planter by turning it on my pottery wheel. It was hand painted by me.

My pottery journey, my passion, didn’t start until my 40’s. Creating pottery is my happy place, especially decorating, vases, cups, bowls, trays, and creating sculptures. The more I create, the more my imagination is spurred on. I will be sharing how I make pottery here.
