I’m Joy.  A seed planter & fire starter.


I am a speaker, graphic designer, dabbling artist, consultant

& coach, and the author of XES, Penduka and SOZO.


I'm passionate about helping women embrace their stories, so they can step out of shame and into freedom, and more

fully live out their passion with purpose.


I have loved words and beautiful things since I was a little girl.  This store marries the two, providing gifts that inspire both heart and home.


Lover of life, speaker of truth, hugger of people.  


Creator of the Penduka Podcast & the We ROAR Project.


Obsessive tea drinker.  Hot mess, saved by grace.


Born in South Africa, I grew up in Namibia, and currently reside across the pond with my gorgeous hubby and our two lovely loin-fruit in Michigan.
