When Life Changes in a Moment, Hang On!
This is a story of how Joyce turned her life challenges into successes. Growing up in an abusive, neglected household, she had to learn how to fend for herself. This inspirational journey shares highlights of how the most important people in her life, her grandparents, taught her important life lessons of determination, goal setting and resilience. These were her guiding principles. Joyce’s grandfather had many great sayings and one that always drove her work ethic was, “If you’re going to take the time to do something, do it right the first time so you won’t have to do it over.”
