Invite us to your next event.


Joy Roberts and Julie Widman along with team members, Ashley BellConnie Armerding, Mary Merriweather and DeAnne Welberg are available to start conversations, teach and lead at events in the Portland area and across the United States.

Our messages are centered on God’s Word — practical, authentic, and motivating.

The Joy of It team is passionate about starting conversations within churches and communities of people. Face to face connections and real conversations create room for connection, relationships, and community to be built.

Reconciliation is a hot topic and if it was easy everyone would be doing it. We tend to love the idea of reconciliation but are challenged by how to actually live it out. Joy of It offers a format that provides a safe place to have hard conversation to build awareness and healing that reflects God’s design for relational flourishing.

Some of our favorite topics include:


Less Broken & More Whole

One Body United

Stewarding Your Identity

The Road to Reconciliation

The Power of We

Fullness & Freedom

Legacies Built to Last
