About Me

Hey you and welcome to my blog! My name is Joy Harrington and I started this blog as a stay at home Mom who needed a creative outlet for my interests. Can anyone relate here? :) Let me tell you a little bit about myself.

 I am #6 out of 9 kids and absolutely loved being raised in a big family with "built in best friends".

My sisters and I

 I met my first love and Savior when I was 5 but my walk with Jesus Christ truly came alive around age 14.

 My favorite hashtag is #allbecauseofJesus because that truly sums up my entire life and everything in it. I first heard this phrase at Mars Hill, our church that we are members of and I have been using it ever since!

 I met my best friend and love when I was 22. He was nothing that I expected and everything that I needed. I am so thankful that Jesus knew what I would need beyond age 22 and gave me Peter.

We married on June 11, 2010. Growing together with him in our pursuit of Jesus has been an amazing story of redemption that I feel honored to be a part of.

 I became a Mama by blood on November 30th, 2012.

 Simon Jace Harrington gave me the best gift I didn't know I wanted: motherhood. He has been nothing but sunshine in our lives and I love my everyday life with him.

(I say mother by blood because I have several kids that I nannied plus nieces and nephews that I love just as much as my own child and I would do anything for. They were my "practice babies" for Simon and I am a better Mama to him as a result).

I feel so blessed to have this life with Peter and Simon as my family.  I love them with all my heart and can't wait to see where Jesus takes us in our adventure.  I love to live life to the full and see the joy in it all.

Welcome to my journey!
