Grace LaJoy  

A Quiet Voice - A Powerful Message: This author of 13 books has been endorsed by leading motivational speaker, Les Brown.

Dr. Grace LaJoy holds a PhD in Christian Counseling with an emphasis in Writing and Research and an undergraduate degree in Social Psychology. She is in-demand as an accomplished speaker, workshop leader for writers and aspiring authors and sexual purity workshops for young women.

Not a stranger to hardship, adversity and struggles, Dr. LaJoy began writing letters to God - personal letters, holding nothing back.  These were the beginnings of a body of work that has matured to envelope inspirational verse, song and wise counseling.  Her work has been featured in newspapers, radio, television (FOX-4 News and TBN's Praise the Lord.)

To appreciate Dr. LaJoy's words today, you must understand the path that brought her to her mission.  Grace LaJoy was the youngest of six children. By age two, her mother left the family - never to return. At age seven, her father left the state for work, leaving her and her siblings behind in a house alone. Promises were made to send money each week, but in short order they found themselves in a house with no heat, no water, no food and no lock on the door! Grace spent the next three years in foster care.

She was reunited with her father at age ten, but still knew many struggles. The experience did not make her bitter. Instead she was grateful to her father for teaching her at a young age how to take care of herself. At age thirteen, her creative writing talents began to mature and receive recognition ... although she did not yet recognize it for herself..

Despite regularly attending several churches while her family traveled from place to place, Grace still had not truly developed a relationship with God. By age 17, she found herself unmarried and pregnant with her first child. Eventually, she truly gave her life to God with all her heart and with all she did ... willing to accept his decisions and calling for her.

Because of her own path to God, Dr. Grace LaJoy knows that others may be struggling in their lives and in their personal journey. Her past is what shaped her present mission - to educate, motivate, inspire and minister. Her words do not judge and lecture ... but they are honest,  based on Biblical fact, and a source of healing and deliverance.

Her keynote speaking is extremely powerful and demonstrates the ability to overcome adversity by recognizing and using your individual gifts. Hers is a quiet voice with a powerful, inspiring message.
