Hello friends!

My name is Danielle and I am the creator of the PURE JOY blog.   Recently, I have noticed that many of my favorite things begin with the letter "F"...Faith, Family, Friends, Food, Fitness, Fashion... and those will be the things that I will be sharing with you!  I am sooo excited to start this journey and I sincerely hope that each one of you will share it with me. 

For several months now, I have been looking at this blogging world.  And I LOVE it.  It has taken me a while to get to this point, and will certainly take me a while to figure out the whole blogging "thing" so please be patient!

Why Pure Joy? Because!  I have been thinking about JOY for a few weeks now and what it truly means to be joyFUL.  During this time, I have time and time again stumbled upon the verse "Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perserverance (James 1:2-3)."  So now I am going to take this verse to heart and try to share it with my readers the best I can. 

A bit about me... I am a full time college student, nanny, daughter and sister.  I am getting my degree in Kinesiology, before pursuing a Doctorate in Physical Therapy.   I love to help people and I adore my family.  Most importantly, however,  is my faith.  I will be sharing a lot more about my beliefs on future posts... so stay tuned!  I would be delighted to hear from each and every one of you.

joyfully yours,



  1. Good verse :) Sometimes the trials we face are also God's blessings

  2. Welcome to the blogging world! :)

    One tiny suggestion - could you darken your text just a little bit? Light blue on yellow can be difficult to read.

  3. You darkened your text. It's much better on my eyes. Thanks! :)
