My name is Joyce Samuels Williams Graves (Joy). I love to uplift people, inspire, encourage and pay it - forward to them. I have written 2 books; Jesus I Don't Understand? and Be A Blessing To Someone Today, For Tomorrow May Be Your Blessing. I am working on my 3d book. The working title, for now, is "Do What You Can and Watch God Do What You Can't?"
I try in some small or big way to be a blessing to someone every single day. I love being on FanStory!. The feedback has helped me so much with writing my poems through feedback. I love reading the writings of other poets & writers.

Remember: "Never look down on someone unless you are picking them up"
God bless you and Happy Writing!!
