Countless women struggle to navigate the complex world of womanhood. During life’s most difficult and trying times, such as puberty, dating, marriage, motherhood, career, and menopause, many yearn for not only a listening ear, but words of wisdom and clarity only born from experience. Wisdom found through the voices of mothers, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers—elders that for many, have long ago left this earth. Blessed with five generations of strong women ranging from ages 22 to 100, we bring you a collection of stories that every woman needs to hear.
Raw, real, and offering a different generational perspective, we share stories of faith, courage, strength, and survival. Every page is filled with vulnerability and transparency as we expose our hearts and our healing. Each story concludes with a life lesson and reflection questions to encourage growth. Rich with lessons for women and men, The Journey to Joy, helps readers better understand the power and strength of being a woman and how to better love the women in your life.
