Pat Joyce - Bio

I met the Lord April 4, 1974 in a dramatic encounter and have spent the last 40 plus years deepening the relationship and studying His Word.   I have been married to Ed Joyce for 62 years.  We have 2 children, 4 grandchildren and 3 great grands.  We moved from Wharton, TX, near Houston, to Andrews, TX in the West Texas Permian Basin two years ago to be closer to family.

While studying His Word is best, I also enjoy secular learning.  I went back to school in my thirties to get a BA in History from the University of Houston and in my fifties an MS in Adult Education from Texas A & M. I taught school and finally I retired from our local community college in 1996 as coordinator of the Adult Education program. 

 

Retirement means being busier than when you work.  I'm guessing my list is about like yours.  I joined a couple of clubs, did volunteer work, cared for both our moms, had more time to be grandma but the greatest delight was for God and His Word.  Got to teach Bible in a variety of places and was founding partner in a couple of website ministries.  Most of my writing was done in that context.  Who am I?  Just one His—blessed to be a part of the Body of Christ.
