Let’s start a conversation!


Joy Roberts and Julie Widman are Co-Founders of Joy of It, a non-profit that exists to create spaces for authentic relationships to flourish. Together with their team, they implement and execute collaborative projects that aide churches and organizations in the community to better reflect Jesus. Joy of It co-labors with Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Lifeway, as well as a variety of churches and non-profits throughout the city of Portland.

Joy and Julie along with team member Connie Armerding are available to start conversations, teach and lead at events in Portland and across the United States. Our messages are centered on God’s Word — practical, authentic, and motivating.

Some of our favorite topics include: Remarkable Women Leave a Legacy, The Power of We, Forgiveness & Freedom, A Call to Beauty, Unity is Not Uniformity, and Absolute Surrender.
