Front Cover
AuthorHouse, 2011 - Biography & Autobiography - 176 pages
This book is based on a true story of the life of a child who became the victim of cruel circumstances that led to years of rejection, pain, heartache and abuse. Her blue eyes saw more in her young life, than most see in a lifetime. She felt she would always be a product of her past and could never see any way to a brighter future. Shame and disgrace had taken a toll in her young life, heart and soul. She had lost all hope from the pain and struggles at such a tender young age that she contemplated suicide on many occasions. Her life seemed to be spiraling down a slippery slope of no return. Each day she stared in a mirror at a pale reflection of emptiness that gave her no reason to live or have hope for a brighter tomorrow. Her heart wrenching home situation of abuse, lack of love, insecurity and turmoil drove her into a deep anger that almost destroyed her life. Her world was shaken and turned upside down and she felt there was no one she could turn to for help or advice. Yet, something deep inside continually nudged her along the way to continue her fight for survival. It took an extreme amount of energy to push the mess of life and the tears of rejection and abuse out of sight in order to maintain her sanity. The longing in Joyce's tender heart for a better tomorrow was a driving force that would keep her from abandoning all hope. 'Pain Through A Child's Eyes', is a story that will touch the very core of your heart and bring tears to your eyes, as you feel in your own heart the pain her blue eyes and heart encountered.

She read where God used a donkey to talk to a man, and changedthe course of his life. (Numbers 22:22-23 nkjv). Joyce realized if God could use a dumb donkey to change the life of one man, then why couldn'tHe change her circumstance and use her.Joyce's pains and yesterday's sorrows became a stepping stone for a better life personally and in Christ.

God has restoredmany times over what was lacking or robbed from her in her childhood and teenage years. He said in His Word He would restore what the canker-worm(locust) had destroyed. (Joel 2:25 nkjv) She is a witness that God can and will restore every place in your life that has been broken, if you will notgive up, but only believe."Against all worldly odds, I rose out of a life of condemnation, negativity, abuse and rejection. What the world meant for evil, God used forHis goodsaid JoyceJoyce is a published writer who uses her gifts to bring healing to a hurting world.
