Welcome to JOY with PURPOSE – Finding Joy in Helping Others

If that name sounds a little familiar – I’ve written the Clip with Purpose blog for over 5 years.  Alas! that website has been lost with all hands on deck!  I decided to start a brand new blog – and I think the title is even better :

JOY

– it’s something that bubbles up from within, a sense of contentment that goes beyond circumstances.

With PURPOSE

the desire to have a meaningful life.   And meaning for me is helping others.

I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.

Mother Teresa

Welcome to Joy with Purpose

I’ve been inspired by many women in my life – my mothe

r, my aunts, and even my daughter – who passionately love God, love their family and express themselves through art and crafts no matter how difficult and challenging their lives might be.

It is more than an “escape” – it was the way they saw God’s love pouring into them and through them to others in the most creative ways.

My Mission for Joy with Purpose

Together we can make a difference!

I LOVE TO SHOP and find BARGAINS – “never pay retail” is my mantra!  So for pennies on the dollar we can purchase enough for our own families – AND enough to share with others.

I also LOVE TO CRAFT and give them away.

We can be the light – we can make a difference in this world, one person at a time.  This page will focus on helping people through craft ideas and discount shopping deals to help others through many different charities.

As Jesus said: ” Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” John 13:34

Loving our neighbor means locally as well as those around the world and through our gifts we get to share the Good News of Jesus and share God’s love!

Proverbs 31: “She opens her hand to the poor and reaches out her hands to the needy.”

I have spent my life volunteering in church leading S

unday School, VBS and Women’s Ministries, as well as a number of charity organizations including Operation Christmas Child and Youth for Christ.

This blog will highlight lots of various charities.  There are so many great organizations such as Days for Girls, Dress a Girl, local foodbanks, homeless and women’s shelters, card-writing campaigns such as Cards for Hospitalized Kids and many many more.

Through this page I hope you will be inspired to be the light in your community and around the world!

  1. Love the new site. I have learned so much from your Clip with Purpose site. Looking forward to this one.

  2. Thank you so much for your site! It sounds like you are a women after my own heart. I am in the process of trying to figure out what the next “season” of my life will be now that the company I work for is closing down. After 37 years in the printing industry it is a time for a change. I have this nagging urge to take the monthly charity craft nights we have done for years at our home to a larger scale but I’ll still need to figure out how to bring some money in also. As this idea develops I’ll be checking in to get some encouragement. God bless!

    • Thank YOU Tina for your kind words of encouragement. Change for me is hard, but is always good! God bless you as well as we journey on this new season together!
