Mother, daughter, sister, grandmother to Jeremiah and Michai. Pain Advocate. I am One Voice. There's victory in my smile because I know the Lord will make a way somehow! I am a survivor of change at no fault of my own. I became what most call “a victim of circumstance” as the result of an unexpected event in my life. With the help of God, I've managed to overcome the impossible. I'm a survivor. I'm still standing. I am a victor and not a victim of my circumstances! I still have a ways to go but through it all, I refuse to give in to the enemy. Delayed is never denied. I have dreams and aspire to do many things. By God's grace, with the help of family and friends, this too shall pass. My greatest desire is to travel the world to share my story with others in spite of the fact my body isn’t equipped. God doesn’t call the equipped, he equips the called. There’s a book I wrote years ago that will be published by the beginning of next year. There are unique multicultural heritage designs and inspirational quotes I created that are now part of unique, personalized design products offered at my online store www.jonnaydesigns.com. God has given me strength to do the impossible in spite of adversity. It is where I finally found my purpose; to inspire others. As such, this website and blog was created as a way to share inspirational poems, quotes, and sayings that are random, off the top of my head along with thought-provoking messages I live and breathe daily in thought but sometimes find difficult to put on paper or keep to myself. It is a way to express myself and at the same time share my thoughts with others. At times, sharing my love of God our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ with the world. In short, it is my way of inspiring others. Since being declared disabled and diagnosed with Fibromyalgia nine years ago, amongst other conditions I suffer with, I am an advocate for those who suffer with this debilitating disease. So if you see many posts on the subject, it is my way of showing support of this cause. I am one voice and my desire is to share knowledge so that others can make an informed decision regarding treatment and care that they may have a greater quality of life. As a Fibromyalgia pain advocate, in my fight to secure a first-ever presidential proclamation naming September National Pain Awareness Month I created a video. With the help of my family, I created a poem that was submitted to the American Pain Foundation If I Lived In a World With Less Pain, I Could campaign in 2009. Please click on the joaynn YouTube link below and take a listen to my video. I have several challenges which prevent me from being able to post daily or create, as well as be creative as I’d like but in time I will get the hang of this. Therefore, if my thoughts are too long and I have too much or not enough to say on one given day, please bear with me. In the meantime, thank you for stopping by! I hope you like it. Enjoy!
