While Joyce Coy was recreating mosaics of her adventures with words, she pictured her grandchildren from ages 7 to 25 who often asked, “Gramma, tell us a story about you.” Joyce has included naughty moments, the yearning and search to know God, and the tug of war between fears and faith. She has also given peeks into the cultural backdrop of the farming society of her youth in the 60’s and 70’s.
Her wobbly times showcase God meeting her in specific ways. She unwraps the reality that Father God made a way through the unknowns of her life. His steady influence increased her trust. Even when her dearest love, her husband, had a sudden departure to heaven, Joyce could say, “It’s well with my soul, it’s okay.” Her objective in unzipping her heart is that each reader, youth or adult, will be supported on their personal footpath in knowing Him. What God has done for a modest grandma, He can also do for you.
