Hello everyone, I recently retired after working for the federal government after twenty-two years. I am married to her best friend, Glen Graves.

I have one son,
Monty, a daughter-in-law, Ingrid, and five beautiful grandchildren, Lael, Faith, Janna, Elijah, and Micah.  I currently live in Fort
Washington, Maryland with her husband & poodle, Energy.  I graduated from Grantham University, where I  received my master’s degree with
distinction in management information technology, and from Strayer University, where I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Information

I have been a notary public for the State of Maryland for over twenty-six years. I am member of Forest Heights Baptist Church (FHBC) in Fort
Washington, Maryland. At FHBC, I teach Sunday school to fourth, fifth, and sixth grade students.

My interests are writing poetry; drawing and painting in many mediums (Acrylic, oils and watercolors); reading spiritual, planetary science, and
historical books; making custom jewelry and candles; traveling; and playing the piano.

I own “Unique Treasures by Joyce”  which is an on-line retail gift store.  
I am an independent skincare beauty consultant with Jafra Cosmetics International.

This is my first book.
When you look at yourself from a universal standpoint, something inside always reminds or informs you that there are bigger and better things to worry about.
