Hi, I am really glad you stopped by!  My name is Joyce. I am a 37 year old wife and mother.  I am a Jersey Girl born and raised who ended up in the Deep South. 

What am I about?

  • I am about following Christ and striving to put Him first in my life.
  • I am about being a help meet to my sweet husband of 15 years. I call him Mr. Steady.
  • I am about being a mom to 4 precious little girls I call my grits. Why girts? You can read about it here.

What is this blog about?
  • It is about our home schooling.
  • It is about my journey to become a better wife and mother.
  • It is about  the little things I do to equip myself to minister to my family.

Why the name  Joyful Creations at Home?
 Well, I am Joyce.  So, that is where the joyful came from.  What do I create?  Hopefully...I create a peaceful, loving home for my family to grow in, learn in, and rest in.  In my 15 years of marriage and 10 years of parenting I have learned that Home Is Where My Ministry Is.
"She watches over the affairs of her household
   and does not eat the bread of idleness.
 Her children arise and call her blessed;
   her husband also, and he praises her:"
Proverbs 31:27-28
  God has given me this  precious family and He expects me to make them my first priority here on earth.   I have learned that staying faithful in the small things is the key to taking on the bigger things of life.

Here at JCAH  I tend to share about anything and everything I am doing around the house to keep up with the affairs of my home.
I hope you enjoy your visit!
Have a blessed day!


"Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up."
Deuteronomy 6:5-7
