Feathers, Feathers, Feathers: Living Under My Father's Wings
As a Louisiana sharecropper's daughter, Joyce Broyles grew up feeling loved and safe, free to roam the rice farm on her brother's horse, until middle school showed her the difference between poor country folk and well-off city people. With God's help through family and friends, she overcame low self-esteem and learned to trust Him for guidance and peace.
Fifth of six siblings, Joyce enjoyed the outdoors and ballgames, but her mother insisted on teaching her to sew, cook, and keep a clean house. Because he had no education and knew the drawbacks from that, her dad insisted his children get a college education and contribute to their community. At a Christian college, Joyce met her husband, and together, they encountered many difficult circumstances during the years following as they moved from place to place. Reared under godly influence from family and friends, they were able to travel around the world and teach and encourage others to live under the wings of their Heavenly Father, trusting their lives to His care.
In her memoirs, Joyce tells her story of how she and her husband and children followed God's directions, traveling and ministering, always under His caring wings. She is amazed at how God took her, with nothing but a desire to grow, and led her where He did, using others to keep her from being lost. After the death of her husband, Joyce tells how God helped her to cope and gave her a purpose to continue to serve Him.
