This book will uplift and inspire all ages by telling stories of hope and explaining how you can be a voice in a child’s ear, even when you are not with them. There are so many moments in Joy’s book that are comforting and inspiring to single moms and parents of all kinds. – Mallika Chopra author of Living with Intent

Anyone who doesn’t know about Joy’s inspirational journey and how she has turned that hard-earned wisdom into valuable insights for parents is in for a real treat. I guarantee that parents will take away powerful lessons to pass on to their children that will help guide them throughout their lives. – Geoffrey Canada educator, author, and former president of the Harlem Children’s Zone
