Make a difference for just ONE person today – just one…

welcome to spreading joy 

As the founder/creator of Spreading Joy, I’d like to personally welcome you,  as well as share a little of myself with you.

I am a lover of the million little things that make life BIG! I love old books, hot coffee, the laughter of children and the priceless hugs that mean more than anything.

I want everyone to  know – “There’s NO joy like Spreading Joy!”

I have a desire to make a difference. A HUGE Difference. Right now, it is not possible to give on the level that my heart desires, so I’m concentrating on what I have and I’m giving that. I have time, I have a voice and I have a gift of gab. Well, maybe not a “gift” but I do enjoy talking. I’m just here to help people realize they can make a difference without breaking the bank! The coolest thing – when you give anything, YOU get so much more back than even the precipitant gets. You should try it!


You can give to Spreading Joy just by taking a Cruise with Us! Departing October 17th 2015 – will you JOYn us for a great time of refreshment and giving back? Click the photo below  for details and to make your reservation!

The costs below are for 2 people per cabin. It INCLUDES Taxes, Port Fees and Gratuity so there are NO hidden costs.  Carnival Cruise Line and Terry Jones will both make a donation to Spreading Joy just because you are taking a vacation!

I am passionate about giving. Everyone can make a difference – yes even you! Many people feel they have nothing to offer, but you do.

Click this photo below to be taken to an article that has 50 Ways to Make a difference without spending a single penny!



If 50 was was NOT enough – here are ANOTHER 50 Ways To Make a Difference.  






Between these two links, you have over 100 ways of making a difference, right where you are, without spending a penny.

Every act of joy that you do, regardless of the size, may have an everlasting ripple effect. You never know where that act of joy will end up. You, the giver, are splashed with joy as you make a difference. Go!! Enjoy the splashes of JOY as you make a difference everyday!



So, tell me.  How are YOU spreading joy? Click the photo below and leave YOUR story of spreading joy in the comment section.



I like getting to know people and want people to know me, to be comfortable with me, to know I’m a real person with real hopes, dreams, cry real tears and am completely silly at times.  For your viewing pleasure, I’ve complied a little bit of info about me, just to keep it real. (Ok, so there are 50 completely random things about me there!)  If you have a list like that, please link me up with it.  If not, please share a little of yourself in the comment section.  I love getting to know you!

I love celebrating the LITTLE things that make life BIG!  Click the photo for  my GINORMOUS list of little things!

I also lead an online Music Worship Service –  Tworship (Twitter Nightly Worship)along with my friend Pastor Mike each week night at 9pm EST.

Tworship is a LIVE Worship Service on Twitter.  There are 3 pre-selected songs that start at 9pm EST.  You play the songs at the set time and tweet lyrics, verses or whatever your heart is feeling during this time of worship.   If you have tweetdeck, make a column for #Tworship and use the hashtag, and you’ll see everyone’s tweets at the time.  You can also use tweetchat.com and put in the hashtag #Tworship – change the update rate to 5 seconds and you’ll see everyone as well.  This is cool in that it will end all of your tweets with #Tworship for you.  I love technology!

Hope you’ll join us. (Click the above link for more info on how we started Tworship and what to do to join in!)


We want to rise above the discouragement of high prices, the obstacle of dead ends and the disappointment of our comfort zone. We want to be the change that is so desperately needed.
