If this is the first time checking out my blog, let me introduce myself. My name is Joy Pedrow Skarka, and I hope to always live up to my name by bringing others joy. I’m 27 years young and was born and raised in Monroeville a town east of Pittsburgh, PA. I moved to Tampa, FL to go to college at the University of South Florida. It was in college that God saved me by his grace.
The love I discovered in Jesus gave me a passion for ministry. In September 2013, I launched Joy Pedrow Ministries with the goal to lead women to Jesus. After college, I moved to Dallas, Texas to earn a Master of Arts in Christian Education from Dallas Theological Seminary (DTS). At DTS, I met my husband Zack and we got married in 2017.
Currently, I am wrapping up my doctorate also at DTS. In 2019, my husband and I moved to Parrish, Florida and in 2020 I began a new job as the Director of Discipleship with Authentic Intimacy.
I dream about a world where every woman has experienced the life change of Jesus. I desire that they feel his power, trust him with their lives, and experience healing.
I believe that Jesus will use me and my story, and you and your story, to help women. I invite you to join me on this journey, check out my blogs, and invite other women to join us.
Experience Jesus. Experience His joy. Experience His freedom.
