Hello! My name is Alyssa (middle name Joy, hence the title of my site) and welcome to Sprinkle of Joy! This is my personal website that I created to share my life, encouraging stories and to just have fun!
Before you start reading, here’s a little about me… I am a follower of Jesus Christ and I’m passionate about sharing his love. I am married to love of my life. He is a wonderful, strong and loving man and I love our adventures as husband and wife. We had our first son, Joel, in October 2018. Motherhood has become one of the most challenging but rewarding roles I’ve ever had. We also have a dog named Luna and a cat named Cosmo. I love to bake, and more importantly I love to eat — be sure to check out some of my yummy recipes! I also enjoying running (when we’re not binge watching something on Netflix). My husband and I are obsessed with HGTV and love DIY projects.
I currently work for a small local government agency and a real estate firm where I do communications and marketing. I have a bachelor’s degree in English and a minor in Communications from the University of Illinois at Chicago. I truly love writing and being creative, and I hope this site shows a little slice of that.
Life continues to be an adventure and I look forward to what God has in store for the future.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
Thanks for visiting!
