One word to describe Joy’s story is FREEDOM. It was during her first semester in college that Joy began to experience the freedom that Jesus brings when she surrendered her life to him. Jesus healed Joy of sexual abuse and addiction, and because of her story she hopes to always write and speak vulnerably and honestly. After all, she is a millennial.

Currently, Joy is completing her Doctor of Educational Ministries, at Dallas Theological Seminary. In 2013, she launched JoyPedrow.com with the goal to help women experience freedom from their shame, abuse, and addiction.
