Joyce Marie Sheldon ... author, inspirational speaker
Joy at Asheville, NC book signing
Joyce Marie Sheldon, known affectionately as “Joy” is quick to tell you that she is not a minister nor a psychologist, but simply a woman of faith – a woman who was burned at the fires, so to speak, and who walked out of those fires, as her father would say, smelling like a rose!
Joy is the author of From Fear to Faith, A Caregiver’s Journey. Her personal experiences with The Power of Acceptance have led her to share her insight and to embrace her mission of inspiring and nurturing the spiritual well-being of others, especially those in the role of caregiver. Joy shares her first-hand knowledge of mind, body, and spirit connection through moving and inspirational keynote speeches, workshops and special events.
Her most popular presentation is based on the "5 Cities of Transition" as she refers to them - "cities" we visit during the journey from fear to faith. Whatever the loss - relationship, job, financial security - the five cities remain the same.
In late 2007, she released her second book, Seekers and Dreamers … a collection, which contains poetry, prayers and meditations, along with a CD of her favorite selections from the book. That was followed by Living Sanctuariously, the 26 Stepping Stones to Inner Peace. It is a hand-crafted book, created totally by Joy with individual themes and embellishments. It represents the simple truths the author embraces and from which her various teachings are taken,''
Two other books were published in 2010 - Mia and Mr. Red Feather and Little Kind Heart. Mia and Mr. Red Feather is a tender story of love, trust and friendship. Little Kind Heart is for those grieving the loss of a child.
Joy is a resident of Mooresville, NC and the mother of seven children.
May you be blessed with a graceful heart That you might bend and sway With each and every day of your life Like wheat grown tall In fields of golden mornings ... excerpt from Seekers and Dreamers
