Jennifer's not perfect. Not even close. But she may just capture your heart.
At 27, Jennifer's out of work, her mom just died, and despite stellar qualifications, every job interview ends in rejection.
Haunted by the teasing, taunts, and fat jokes that defined her childhood, Jennifer blames her unhappiness on her ever-growing waist-band.
And she's ready for change.
Messy and real.
Beautiful and harsh.
When Comes The Joy (previously titled Skinny Me) explores one woman's journey along the road of forgiveness, healing, and strength.

When Comes the Joy
What a wonderful story. The life of an obese child as seen through her eyes. It doesn’t matter how many times people try to force you to diet it has to be what you want AND how bad you want it. I’m so thankful she finally saw the real reason for her unhappiness and decided to be different. I’ve always loved that phrase, ‘Fake until you make it.’ It works with depression, unhappiness, forgiveness, etc. Just do it until it feels real. Thanks. G
