Joy Whitlock is a study in contrasts. From her petite frame roars a commanding voice that is vulnerable, yet fearless. She speaks in short, well-measured phrases; her colorful tattoos underscoring her commitment to art and truth. Growing up as a pastor’s kid she wanted nothing to do with Christianity, but at age 20 she began to feel convicted of the sin in her life. A few months later while watching the The Passion Of The Christ, she realized her understanding of Christ was completely wrong, and there, in her theater seat, committed her life to Him.
Each conversation between God and a girl showcases Joy’s authentic and passionate spiritual journey, communicating hope within struggle, faith despite fear, and art that’s simply not propaganda. Comments Joy: “I want people to know that pain is not working against us. It brings us closer to the One who knows pain better than anyone else -- Jesus Christ. He understands and hurts right along with us and our life’s struggles and heartaches only remind us that we are not alone.”
