Hi, I’m Joy Adan. I’m a 30-something, storytelling, coffee-drinking, book-devouring, ocean-obsessed writer, lettering artist, speaker and workshop facilitator, based in Sydney, Australia.
Finding Joy exists to encourage us to pause and look out for the profound in the things we hold personal and precious.
I am a mother of two very energetic boys, and in the midst of the hustle and bustle of work and family life I try to make time to create because it gives me a sense of peace and balance, and gives me an opportunity to contribute a little something special to share with the world.
Words are my medium of choice because the words we use can uplift and empower us and those around us if we choose them carefully and intentionally. Our words can opens minds and transforms hearts. Our words can fuel learning and inspire action. Our words can turns an everyday meal into a lifelong memory. Our lives, our histories and our cultures are a collection of our words – our stories.
As you browse my store and read my stories/posts, I hope you find a little bit of wonder and joy. Whether it’s encouragement, entertainment, education or empathy, if you do find it I also hope you share it and create a great story of your own.
