Welcome to A Joyful Heart! My name is Trish. I am a child of the King, saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. I have been married to Roger, my high school sweetheart, for 20 years. We have 3 children. I have a passion for womens’ ministry, am active in a local church, love to teach Bible studies, and I am an author/contributor to several different websites and blogs. I also have a penchant for fresh buttery movie theater popcorn and frozen Cokes.
My husband is a retired Air Force pilot who has been all over the world. He has been all over the world ~ I haven’t (yet)! I have lived in some of the most beautiful places in the U.S. though. We currently live in Arkansas, but Montana is my childhood home. I have lived all over the country, from Texas to New York to Alaska and several other states in between.
We homeschooled for 14 years; our youngest son, Sawyer, is now in his junior year of high school, attending a residential math and science school that has been rated one of the top 5 high schools (academically) in the nation. Our older son, Patrick, attends the University of Arkansas as a Fellow of the Honors College. Our oldest child, daughter Ashley, has blessed us with two grandchildren: a girl, Attison, born in June of 2008, and a boy, Silas, born in January of 2010. Ashley and I have an amazing God story that continues to unfold and grow. If you would like to know more, please read this post.
Jesus is the ultimate love of my life; I pray that He is the ultimate love of your life as well. My desire for A Joyful Heart is that it will bless you in many different ways ~ spiritually and practically being just the tip of the iceberg. I pray you will be encouraged by this site to recognize Jesus as the Cornerstone and Lord of your life and that your family will be blessed as you grow in your love for Jesus Christ.
