Joyce, over a span of 34 years has been the keyboardist
for Velvet Ridge. Her love for God has been inspiring to many who sit, and watch her play for the glory of God.
To watch her play is a pure joy when you see her play with one hand, her eyes closed, and the other hand raised to God in
praise. Or look at her and see a beautiful smile in admiration to God through the anointing that God has placed on her
life while she is playing with Velvet Ridge in concert on any stage. Besides traveling with Velvet Ridge she is very
active in the home church at Velvet Ridge in the music dept. God has placed an anointing on her life for writing songs
that Velvet Ridge has recorded over the years. The most recent being "His Grace Was For Me" Where would we be if
it were not for the Grace of God? Also living in Velvet Ridge Arkansas, Joyce and her husband Howard would like
to extend an invitation to everyone to come to know Jesus Christ as their savior. She has two daughters, Darline and
Cindy. Unlike most groups we have the privilege of attending the same church. And that makes it easy to get together
for practice and spending time in prayer together.e.
