If this is your first visit to A WIFE AND A WITNESS-Welcome!
A WIFE AND A WITNESS is a book that I wrote about our marriage.
Forty-two years ago this week, the Lord spoke a word of prophecy over me in a church service regarding how my life would be lived out. He literally said that I would be a "wife and a witness" as part of that prophecy.
I understand that some of you may be skeptical of a person receiving such a word through someone else and whether God speaks through people in such a way. I GET that to many people that part of our story is sketchy! But let me tell you some of our story to see how our story plays out.
At the same time I was being prayed over, in an Army base in Germany someone was pushing papers through the system for a soldier from northwest Ohio. That soldier is now my husband. His family asked to receive a hardship discharge so he could come back to
Ohio to help take care of his father, who was battling stage four colon cancer. His DD 214 (Army separation papers) are dated September 17, 1979 just about exactly one day from the day I received that prophecy.
One week after that a friendly new guy at the local gas station spoke to me as he pumped my gas and cleaned my windows. We began a platonic friendship. For nine months we chatted about football and weather, family (my mom and dad bought gas there as well) and just joked back and forth.
Then one day the following May he asked me to the movies. The rest is history and can be found in our book, A WIFE AND A WITNESS.
In spite of the men I dated in that time period, none of them were who God had in mind for me. Only this man that God orchestrated into my life, would reach me heart and love me as God knew he would! Next month we will celebrate forty-one years of marriage! As we look back through the years, God's faithfulness to us has been shown over and over. His timing is always right. If you are looking for God to help you in your marriage relationship, here's a start!
A WIFE AND A WITNESS is a book about how you can better your walk, especially within your marriage. To seek God out in all the areas you need to improve in. God calls all of us to be witnesses of His love and grace!

March 31, 2016 These are the words(wow, oh my, yes and Amen) that came to mind when I started reading A Wife and A Witness. This book is not for the faint of heart, it will cause you to pause and think about if you are treating your spouse the way they should be treated according to God's word. Joy is trying to keep women from falling into the pitfalls that most women seem to succumb to when one spouse is saved and the other is not. But, I also think this book is beneficial to the wife who has a saved spouse. Even if our spouses are saved there are traps and pitfalls that we succumb to that are listed in this book. I'm enthusiastic about marriage, so I was excited to read this book. Anytime someone writes about how to heal, restore, reconcile or how to avoid the baits that Satan will place in your path to destroy to marriages, I'm ecstatic to read and share with someone else. Get a copy of this book, don't sit on the sideline and watch your marriage wither away. Get in the fight, put on the whole armour of God and let Satan know he's a liar. A Wife and A Witness is a 10 star book, but the highest I can give is 5.
