Welcome to Kindler of Joy!

Hello, my Joys! I am thrilled you have made your way to my website. My goal for this site is to encourage myself in the one thing needful and thereby learning to be a Kindler of Joy. I need the constant reminder and by writing and sharing with you it gives me a purpose and focus, reminding me of what I need to do.

St. Seraphim of Sarov said, “Joy, radiant joy, streams from the face of him who gives and kindles joy in the heart of him who receives.” This has been my inspiration.

Paul wrote to the Philippians, “Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.”   

This is the goal! To meditate on the beauty around me. To seek out beauty. To be reminded of beauty. All that is good comes from the Lord.

Won’t you join me in this journey?
