Joy Brunnelson

Joy Brunnelson was born in Schwabach, Germany but lived most of her life in Germantown, MD. Joy and her family currently reside in Frederick, MD. Joy is married to Ben, has a step-daughter, Alexis and a young son, Javin with Autism. This blessing of a special needs child has altered her life in a way that Joy lives every day to the fullest, looks for every moment of laughter and is always ready to try something new. She enjoys serving -giving the gift of love- however she can. Joy believes that “every opportunity to serve is an opportunity to say THANK YOU LORD!!! for the blessings of my life and the sacrifice to save me”. Joy enjoys writing and currently edits the Waterlilyz SPLASH newsletter- so if you have any ideas or suggestions, please email her! One of her favorites quotes is by W. T. Purkiser: “Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.”
