Joye Davis is.......

The blessing that I've experienced in my relationship with Joye is that God's purpose is the focus...core, of what she targets for her clients. Its not about her agenda or reproducing clones of her own likes, goals, etc. She uses her life experience to relate to anyone she has the privilege of coaching, and shares what she intuitively sees and hears concerning what that individual is ultimately after.

She has a flair for fashion and creativity, and a special eye for the beauty in "flawed things". There is a wisdom that has come from her own journey, and in part from her divinely given gift. Her humility is refreshing and her caring nature is magnetic. Her counsel is sound and realistic. She is motivational and inspiring. The ideas she paints are vivid and desirable. Joye helps open eyes to possibilities, and facilitates the fulfillment of dreams and goals.

In order for someone to let you "paint", they first have to trust you. They have to trust your judgment, your expertise and your ability to see THEM and their final product to the world.

We become our best selves when we embrace our weaknesses and inadequacies and leverage our strengths in a positive way. I believe you've done that and only when one has done that can they truly help others to do the same.


For more than a decade  
Mrs. Davis has provided guidance through my personal, professional, and spiritual journey. She's able to recognize, relate and advise with a broad enlightened faith based perspective. With the constant pressures and temptations of being a Man, Husband, Father, Son, Brother, Friend, Co-Worker and Servant of the Lord I've needed that safe place to share, reflect and grow. Mrs. Davis'  direct sincere "realness" is what has given me the courage to realize and overcome many of my challenges. 
I'm changed by her wisdom

— Dawna B
I have known Joye for over 25 years, and she has remained the beautiful, confident and talented young woman that I first met. She is a dedicated and loving wife and mother, who adores her family and joyfully embraces her role as such. Joye won't hesitate to confirm that this is her first calling!
Her giftings are apparent.  She is such a compassionate spirit, filled with love and caring that is birthed out of her own personal journey. Joye is wise beyond her years, and doesn't hesitate to pour into the lives of others, this gift that she has been blessed with. As a professional, she is dedicated to her calling.  Her counsel is Godly, and truly beneficial to those who will receive it. I dearly love and respect the amazing person that she is today. My prayer is that she continues to bless and inspire those lives that she is privileged to touch.
Much love and blessings!

“She Who Kneels Before God Can Stand Before Anyone”

These words describe the character of my friend and sister in Christ Joye Davis!    Her unwavering spirit and boldness has empowered men and women to love themselves first while embracing their God given talents and purposes.   I have witnessed her give so much of herself to those with an “appetite” to receive.  Her love for God, family, people and LIFE is exemplified in all she does.   I have been blessed personally, professionally and spiritually by my relationship with the “extraordinaire” Joye Davis.  

Sincerely, First Lady Vardreane’ Carlisle


 

When Joye came into my life, I had been playing it "safe" for many years.  Because of areas of my life where I had been hurt and betrayed, I had decided that I was not going to take bold steps of faith anymore in my life.  It was too dangerous and I was afraid of hurting myself and others. But Joye, opened me back up to being bold and being myself.  She helped me to start following my dreams again.  She helped me to see how important my voice was in this world.  She saw greatness in me and only spoke to the "greatness" in me and never anything else.  Because she only spoke to the "greatness" in me, that's what she began to draw out of me.  She helped me get back on a path with God, that I had veered from for many years.  Since Joye has started speaking into my life, I started writing again, I published my first book, started my career as a freelancer and I am now in the process of expanding everything that I am currently doing.  She has helped me to move past the hurts that plagued my faith for years and now I am able to soar.  Thank you Joye!!

We all have many challenges throughout life and sometimes those moments can feel so overwhelming that we feel like caving in or losing it.  Well I was there a couple of times and I just left my 20s, talk about a learning curve. My family and I were in a dark place, as we experienced so many trials and tribulations that tested us mentally, spiritually, financially, and even intimately.  I had no one in my circle that would understand, listen and advise without judgement or could simply have a bright new perspective than the gloomy grey one I could not see past.  It was that first phone call with Joye that the weight started to lift.  The conversation was profoundly warm and felt as if we had these discussions everyday.  We laughed, had moments of prayer, shed a couple of tears, and I found clarity in my situation for that day and those after.  It was like having a friend who just got it and got me.  I am not a woman to scream my problems out to the world, so this outlet was new but invigorating.  She is sincere, hilarious, but always truthful.  The most important aspect of having a life adviser like Joye is the mission she reminds you of. Working with Joye has given me a control over my life that I started to forget.  She constantly made the point to keep standing tall with your shoulders up and even when you feel like your always against the odds remind yourself these are the moments that mold us to be great.  When things start to slip into chaos again I go back to those words we referred to so often.   Thank you Joye for reminding me that I am the star of this show.

Its 1am and, I am wondering how can i  write a quick, short and sweet note about my experience with Joye from The Church Chic Project???
Eye opening, soul touching, and uplifting, is the first three words I can come up with.  Yet, those cannot explain the true experience with Joye.  I have known Joye for over 10 years. We lost touch for some time but, God is perfect with his time. He is never late and never too early. I reconnected with Joye last year, and we caught up, and she told me that she had started her business as a life coach . I was so happy for her because, I  always knew she had a gift to uplift people.
In 2014 I was expecting my 2nd child Vida and at the same time was going through problems in my marriage. I was fighting demons in  my head, and feeling depressed, alone, hopeless and really feeling like I had reached my bottom.  I found myself with my 13 month son, pregnant and abandoned by my husband… what do I do, I thought? I had done everything right and how could this be happening to me, and where was I going to find the strength to face my pain… how could I face the shame I felt ??? what do I do with all the anger and hurt I felt in my heart???
That was when Joye coached me and helped me process my thoughts and feelings. Joye, assured me that there was something higher than me and my situation.  She helped me find myself back to my creator. Jesus.    Yes, there were times she told me things that I did not want to hear, because when we are in so much pain we don’t want to see what contributed to the craziness that happens in our lifes.  I had my daughter in March, and as many know that your emotions are all over the place, and I found myself as a single mother, and with so much guilt and shame…. But I hid my pain form the world, and the only one I was able to turn to was my, sister, friend, the help God put in my path to not give up and find myself worth, value, and love.
I could write a small novel on my experience with Church Chic. Today all I can say is thank you Joye, there are no words to express my gratitude for helping me see things in a better light, helping me become a better mother, for pushing me out of my comfort zone, and for helping me fall in love again with the Lord. Lastly, thank you for all the love.

When I was asked to share my testimony about how God has used  Minster Joye, passionately referred to  as MJ or Sis to me now, to alter my life and the ordained timely saving of my marriage. I was not eager, I was not sure of who would read it or what others may think as I was a very clandestine person. I used the verb word "was" private. In the bible God has made very intimate details known to the world to show the light of Jesus. With that being said I entered into what my husband and I often called our "dark period". 
Three years ago my marriage was in a dismal state of ungodliness. My spouse and I had no respect for each other. We would speak and disregard one another as if we were strangers. My tongue began to crucify him daily. I did not respect my husband because he was not working he did not respect me because I was working. It was a difficult enviroment for us and our children. Satan began to dwell in my home and he felt safe there. The same mouth I used to speak life to my marriage and to my husband was the same mouth I used to speak death and disparity.  I was tired and too through of coming home to witness my husband with our children while I was working to support our family. I was too tired of having the weight of the world on my shoulders. I was too tired of taking care of him....  I did not allow God a voice. I decided since I was the "man" in the relationship I would begin to show my spouse what I believe I was capable of.
Let me first say I had what I believed to be a wonderful childhood, growing up with both my parents. My parents were married for 50 years until my dad's death in 2013.  I know now in my adulthood that just because your in the same home does not make your present within your marriage.  I've never seen or heard my father speak in a tone to my mother like I spoke to my spouse. If they had disagreements my father would simply succumb to my mothers wishes. His world was my mother even if it meant killing his feeling and thoughts about valid concerns. I never witness them have a constructive argument or disagreement.  Therefore I never learned how to "fight "fair. 
I began to seek unwisely counsel regarding my marriage. I began to come and go as I wanted. I did what pleased my flesh daily. I began to bath in cardinal gratification. I was "showing him" which is how I justified my actions. We lived as strangers under the same roof.  There was pain and hurt that constantly resonated my soul daily. I was losing what I always prayed for. My family.  
I wanted out.... I went to the court house and filed for divorce. After speaking to the clerk at the office she explained they were a little behind in cases and just wanted to reiterate this. My case would probably not even heard  until the latter part  of the next year. By this time I was so liberated I was dissolving this dreadful dead marriage I did not care. I felt abandoned and empty. I felt I was a waking soul without a home. After speaking to the clerk once more I paid the filing fee and proceeded to make copies. As I was making copies the clerk stated she " liked" me for some reason and she will placed my filings to the top of the filing poll. To my Christian sisters, you know Satan can used people too.  I thank her very much and left. While in my car I began to sob like I never have  before.  The kind of heat aching sobbing as if I had lost my best friend. I at that very point wanted to end my life.  
But God had other plans.  As I gathered  my thoughts. My cell rang, it was my sister telling me my father was diagnosed with terminal cancer. I called my job cleared my schedule and rush to the hospital.  My husband demanded to come with me. As we rode in silence God began to speak to me.  Surrender today!!! Keisha!, I was not ready to surrender I was angry and now my father was dying. 
Cancer is dreadful. I watch my dad a seemly healthy 78 year old medium built 160 pound man go to a heart wrenching 90 pound man within the course of months. Being in constant pain daily.  Taking him back and forth to the doctors only to be told nothing could be done. Bathing him and feeding him. Taking turns with my sister to guard over him at night.  We were losing him in front of my very own eyes. The life that my daddy always told stories about was being stolen by a thief called cancer, as we all stood there feeling worthless. My life was a mess..
After my dads funeral, the state of my marriage was in cancer mode as well. Except unlike with my dads death I open the door for the thief to steal what ever he wanted. I welcomed it!! 
During this time in my life we began to visit what I always believed to be my husbands family in Virginia.  Throughout my years before now I never referred to them as my family. They all were very  beautiful, every bone structure in place like the Greek statue paintings. Just radiant, even the elders were all utterly  gorgeous.  I must admit my flesh was intimidated my this initially. I have never been  intimidated  before with the attractiveness of any women as I knew I had a good pool of traits myself. But at this low point in my life I was not feeling beautiful.  I felt very unattractive due to my level of stress. 
We began to fellowship more in Virginia and MJ's spirit was connecting to mines.  God had a plan.  As she and I began to talk more we had so much in common. I felt safe,connected and secure.  She began to share her life's journey with me. I began to unravel. God was removing the tape and staples that I allowed to punctured my soul. As she was ministering to me in her basement. Tears were coming down so were my walls of fake plaster. Something beautiful happen I finally "Surrendered"   My soul opened up to allow life in and to pushed death out. I began to meditate on Gods words. I was changing. I began to pray for my husband. I demanded Satan  to leave my house and my body.  I began to focus on speaking life to presumption. I was focused on changing myself.  My husband was still out of work so the circumstances did not change only the way I began to view them changed. I became a kindred soul. Getting up early to pray for my family. I although found it to be difficult when my husbands actions did not change his hurtful words, I instead alter my words more. I worked harder each day fighting Satan for what was mines.  I stated to lift my husband up, rather than tear him down. My home life was getting better because I changed my thinking and focus on Christ. MJ's testimony was my revelation. I thank God for her and was is now my family daily.  I love them each very much because they have all taught me what endurance really is. God was revealed through their obedience to Christ.....
I end with the words of one of my favorite Christian authors Max Lucato. " A women's heart should be so hidden in God that a man has to seeks his counsel to to find her
I love you MJ!! I am forever grateful for your Godly Counsel.  
Love your sis,
Keisha
