Welcome to Joyfully Ever After!

Empowering women in their faith, families, and careers through the power of Romans 12:12.

“Rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing instant in prayer.”

My name is Melody Maynard. I am far from perfect. I struggle with anxiety, am a professional procrastinator, and worry my husband far too much. I’m not very “domestic” by nature, and sometimes I have full-blown temper tantrums when I get overwhelmed with college or housework. True story.

But the best part about being me is that I have been redeemed. I am more than my anxiety and temper tantrums. I am wooed by the cross, and saved by his blood. I am redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ. Jesus has paid for all of my sins and shortcomings on the cross. He paid the ultimate price so I could live the ultimate life. Eternal life with Him. He is my Savior, and I owe my life to Him.

Joyfully Ever After is a story of redemption. It may be told through household tips, blog design, unlikely friendships, college notes, and book reviews . . . But it is a story of one redeemed soul sharing her joy with others. Whatever way it comes . . .

Everyone is welcome here, and we all have something to share. I can’t wait to hear your story, too!

Until then,

Melody Maynard
