Our Story

Welcome, I’m so glad you’re here!

My husband Ken and I moved to Joy Cottage in October of 2017. We have been married 43 years, and we are experiencing the joy that comes with staying together through thick and thin. We are both from small towns, and so we desired to get back to that all important sense of community and neighborliness.

Our neighbors and community have welcomed us with open arms and we couldn’t be more thankful. We love to have others in our home, and around us. We are sold out to the marriage relationship, and have counseled many marrieds, and pre-marrieds with great joy. Joy is foundational to our life. And when we saw Joy Cottage for the first time we knew this was the home that would be consistent with our vision.

Ken and I are currently working on our books, blogs, and websites. We also love working with children, and constantly marvel at How God touches young hearts. Our focus has been  as counselor, coach, and mentor. We have practiced in many venues, so it is my desire to encourage you with and through our life lessons.

I hope you will come back often.

Jacquie ♥
