Celebrating the Gift of my Son–His 11th Birthday!

Happy 11th birthday to an amazing young man whom I am honored to call my son!

I have watched him grow from a sweet baby…to climbing everything in his path…overcoming difficult obstacles together.

I have the privilege of being his learning coach and teacher

as well as his mother each day.

I have had the honor of watching him grow into the maturing, fun, intelligent, thoughtful, determined, creative, very special young man who isn’t afraid to stand up for his faith and what he values, learns from his mistakes, and isn’t afraid to be unique.

He loves life, having fun with friends and family,

as well as learning and discovering new things every day!

I am proud to be his mom and am looking forward to what is to come

in this 11th year of his life!

Happy birthday, Josh!!!!

I love you so much!

I am SO proud of you!

Love always,


Here is a little look at some of his adventures during this past year…

About the author

Mary Joy

I am a broken daughter of God and a work in progress. I am passionate about encouraging women to embrace God's grace and faithfulness as I discover and share His faithfulness, grace and even joy in the messiness of my journey as a widowed (less than 2 yrs), homeschooling mom with a missionary's heart. I am in awe of how God fills me up and carries me through each day. My Heavenly Father leads me as I continue to parent and home school my two recovering and very active boys and encourage my beautiful teenage step-daughter (long distance) during her first year in of college. In every moment I see incredible evidence of God's healing love, grace and faithfulness. I am so blessed to be the creator, manager, and an author of Unwrapping His Grace as I lean on my Savior to lead us in this special web-ministry.
