About Joy

a spinner of fantastic tales
a dreamer of impossible things!

Hello, friend. Thank you for stopping by. 

My name is Joy. I'm a Coptic Christian girl living in a sunny little corner of Queensland, Australia, by the coast. As an Eng. Literature & Writing major at university, I war with words and paint them with my pen (and naturally my laptop!), scribble stories, play the violin and sing with my heart, take lots of photos, and am an avid reader of good books. Travel is on of my favourite things to do, but so is staying at home in my arm-chair with my books and garden. As you can see, I'm a hobbit at heart! 

I love being a scholar and student of literature (it's kind of a passion), classics, theology/philosophy and history - particularly ancient. Imagination is my favourite cup-of-tea, a world that I traverse daily. I love my family and my friends deeply, and the joy of fellowship and long deep chats over a pot of tea, or a chai latte. 

Most of all, I love Jesus so much, my beloved Saviour and dearest Friend. The greatest goal of my life is to love and glorify God in all I do, as He guides me on the path of life. 

All these things are aspects of my life that I hope to explore and examine on this little ol' blog. If you stay a while, I hope you will be blessed in some small way through my little alcove of the blogsphere.
