Today Women of Faith Foundational Voice and Host Alita Reynolds interviews the real life mother Joyce Smith, played by actress Chrissy Metz in the movie Breakthrough.
JOYCE SMITH was born in Wichita, Kansas, and due to her father's job, she grew up all over the country. She retired in 2001 and lives in St. Charles, Missouri, with her husband Brian, with whom she has four sons-Joseph, Tom, Charles, and John-and five grandchildren. Joyce keeps busy with her kids' and grandkids' activities, and enjoys cross-stitch, crochet, and decorating. Joyce loves speaking to audiences about what God has done and continues to do for her family.
Alita Reynolds (alitareynolds.com) is the Foundational Voice with Women of Faith, Founder of WIMM (Women in Media Ministry), Certified Life Coach, Writer and Speaker. She and her husband, GJ, are the Visionaries of the Women of Faith ministry whose mission is to encourage and equip women to experience a deeper relationship with Jesus. Alita’s life purpose is as simple as her upbringing was on a Nebraska farm, and she works passionately to inspire others to find Jesus. Alita has learned through lots of ups and downs (more downs than one would like to admit!) that there is more to life than what you may currently be experiencing. She fiercely defends and lifts up the hope and grace we can receive in Jesus Christ. She has a love for family, friends, leading, church, mentoring, fitness, summer days, starting new projects, philanthropy, writing, and walking with Jesus, not necessarily in that order! Alita also loves to talk with and interview believers to share their amazing stories of how God’s grace and mercy works in their lives. Alita chooses to create opportunities to encourage everyone to find their God-given purpose, live a life of excellence, elevate all areas of their lives to bring others to Christ, and lock arms together to Be the Light! Alita is real and authentic, with a deep desire to create movements that will radically change the world. The truth is, this all starts at home in Lincoln, Nebraska; and there is no place she would rather be than spending time with her husband, GJ, and three children, Logan-21, Rees-20 and Lexi-14.
