About Kelly Joy

Welcome to Kelly Joy Ministries! I’m Kelly Joy Fjestad (pronounced Fee-es-ted). I have a passion for the Word of God. I love it! I can’t get enough! But that’s not all, I want to share it with YOU! I hope my blog inspires you to read the Word of God for yourself and to fall in love with the One who wrote it!

I am an author and speaker. You can check out my book Paused here and my speaking schedule here. Feel free to contact me to schedule your next event!

In 2011, God called us to move from Minnesota to Texas. So, we sold half of our belongings (so we could fit in the moving truck), packed up our five kids, and moved across the country. You can read the full story here.

I am an ordained minister with the Assemblies of God. I graduated from Trinity Bible College in Ellendale, ND with a BA degree in Biblical Studies and a Church Ministries Minor.

My husband, Brad, and I currently reside in Fort Worth, TX. We have five beautiful children: Jesse, Asher, Maverick, Remington, and Cabella. I have the privilege of homeschooling them and enjoy every (ok, not every) moment.

I typically blog 2-3 times per month, although at times it might be more often such as the 40 day Lent devotional. If you don’t want to miss anything, subscribe to my email updates!
