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 recently got married to love of my life. He is a wonderful, strong and loving man and I am excited for our adventures as husband and wife. We 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. My husband and I are obsessed with HGTV and love DIY projects.
I currently work for two government agencies where I do communications and public relations. I also volunteer at my church and a local animal shelter where I help with marketing and social media. 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!
