Joy Lenton is a contemplative writer and poet whose work has been published in various anthologies, including 'Hear Our Voice!', 'Breaking the Chains', 'A Word From The Wise', 'Individual Voices', 'The World Of Women' and 'Celebrations—15 Years Of The People's Poetry'.
Her former nursing career came to an abrupt halt when she developed M.E. Although her days may be constrained and confined by chronic illness, her life is shaped and defined by her Christian faith.
She is an ardent chaser after grace in life's hard places and a firm believer in beauty arising from brokenness. Her desire is to help and encourage others to sense the eternal in the temporal and the poetic in the prosaic.
Joy writes weekly words of hope and encouragement on her award winning wordsofjoy.me blog, and is a regular contributor to the Association of Christian Writers (ACW) and Godspace blogs, as well as guest posting elsewhere.
