Amie would say that the greatest adventure is living life in the center of God’s will; it’s scary, vulnerable, but the most exhilarating and fulfilling path you could choose.

About Joya Halls:
Director of Editorial & Head Ministry Assistant
Joya Halls is a passionate, fun-loving, 38 year old woman who, even before she became a follower of Christ, has always been one to encourage and lift up those around her. Now that she has come to know the Lord, she feels it is her purpose to help others to realize their identity in Christ. As one who has over-come many trials and challenges in life, Joya knows how important it is to know that we are new creations in Christ. She believes it is key to stay humble and teachable, and this will allow her to grow closer to the Lord.
Joya grew up with a very ill father, who passed away a few years ago. She also had a step-father who passed away quite some time ago from illness. And she had a 2nd step-father who passed away from illness a few years ago. Clearly, Joya was missing a father’s love in her life, and spent her youth and 20’s running from God and making bad life-choices; searching for love and hiding from the hurt and empty-feeling inside. In her early 30’s, Joya felt God tugging at her heart, calling her back to Him. She surrendered to Him and has been striving to become more and more Christ-like ever since.
Joya lives in London, Ontario and spends her days serving and helping others. She loves her dog Griffin, the great outdoors, and finding a good bargain, and she has fun doing just about anything. Joya is always laughing…which totally makes sense as God told her mum to call her “Joy”!

She did not always follow Christ in fact, she shares that she was so far away from Him it is only through Him that she is here to tell you this. 12 years ago Tracy was at the bottom of her life nowhere to go. Life was very tough and She had many decisions to make. One of them was that she decided to change her life. In that moment she had chosen to walk into a church on a Sunday morning all by herself. (looking back now, she was never alone). A month later she gave her heart to Christ and it has been a whirl wind ever since. Her life has changed so drastically in all good ways, her habits, her time, her thoughts, her actions, started getting easier things made sense, of course this was God’s plan all along. Her journey was just beginning, first She got remarried to a God-fearing man, then met a bunch of wonderful people through small group ministry, than He placed a beautiful Christian woman in her life whom both share the love and passion our their hearts, which is photography. Tracy is a mother of two adult boys, married to a loving Christian man, and surrounded by Christian friends. Here as UYM, She is blessed to take photos with her best friend, Heather.
