About Joyce

Joyce Cordell, inspirational speaker and author, lives in Louisville, Kentucky with her husband Jim. They have two children and seven wonderful grandchildren.

Joyce-FramedJoyce enjoyed a career in music education and music ministry, but in 2001, the Lord called her into the world of writing.

As a young person, Joyce would have countless creative ideas pop into her head. She couldn’t rest until she put them on paper. Later, these ideas produced Bible studies, devotions, and scripts. And now two novels––Ears to Hear and A Heart for Truth.

A six-week Bible study is available as a companion to the first novel.

In 2006, Joyce fulfilled the lifelong dream of visiting the Holy Land. She stood on the original steps leading up to the palace of Caiaphas.  What a thrill to stand on the very steps upon which Malchus would have walked. (Ears to Hear)

In 2014, Joyce completed A Heart for Truth, her second book in this series of “unlikely believers.” Nicodemus plays the prominent role along with his contemporaries, Joseph of Arimathea and Gamaliel, Paul’s teacher.
