Kathy Joy lives in Erie, Pennsylvania and is a widow, Author, Speaker and former Radio personality who was a favorite D.J. in Colorado, who turned her phrases to catch and tickle the ears of her listeners.

Radio personality, Kathy Joy, a favorite D.J. in Colorado, turned her phrases to catch and tickle ears.
Life as she knew it turned upside down when she lost her husband by sudden cardiac arrest. Tragedy multiplied as this grief led to the additional loss of the family farm. Quite alone, raising her children became a daily feat. During the sorrowing process, she wrestled with difficulty and looming days of depression.
In fact, this little coffee-table book amazes the reader with a hope that is born out of grief.
Yet, her God-given creative mind kept nudging her forward. She began to notice at least three beautiful images every day. Intentionally, she'd jot down these memories to acknowledge the good moments.
Speaking wonder became the thread of Kathy Joy's Everyday Celebrations.
