But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like.
Joyce Heinrich, 10 Years
Thousands of babies have been prayed over in the nurseries superintended by Joyce on all three campuses during the past decade. Shortly after her husband, Bob, died of cancer, she applied for the job of nursery coordinator, and her interview stands out as one of the most remarkably God-centered, hope-filled, and grief-stricken all at once. Those who know her know that I speak here of a beautiful woman with a tremendous faith-filled spirit.
Where do you think all those baby announcements during weekend services come from? Joyce.
Suggestion: Flood her mailbox with expressions of thanks to God for her life, her ministry, and the difference she makes in the strength God supplies.
This coming Saturday night there will be a celebration in her honor.
