Joyce Cortes (SweetJoy)

Joined 7 years ago from California




Also follow me on:


I'm Joyce. I'm from California. I'm a part-time researcher and an author of the personal articles including love and relationships, parenting and family, and more. I love to read all people's blogs and write each post via my blog (http://www.unshakeablejoy). I own my online shop:

Personal background:

I was once a divorced mother of two sons. I'm so glad that I got out of my previous marriage due to the domestic violence. I used to be a community support facilitator, located in San Francisco, California. My duty was working with the developmentally disabled clients. My job was to facilitate and teach each client to learn their independent living skills. I left my stressful position to heal my back pain and focus on my writing articles. I love to write and read!

**Updated 9/6/2012**

I'm working as an owner of blog and web design business. My blog and web designing business are Dragonfly Creative Design Studio.

**Updated 06/18/2013**

I am happily remarried to my amazing and wonderful husband, who is a Christian Pastor. He is studying in Criminal Justice Laws; his goal is to become a criminal defense lawyer.

**Updated 05/30/2016**

It's taking so long time to be here; I am full-time lifestyle blogger + Etsy seller.

**UPDATED 02.13.2018**

I quit my ETSY Shop, I create my shop, iSmooch Planner, on a different e-commerce website. It's much better than Etsy. Also, I decided to close my web design business; however, I'd have to help support my mother for a while.

Educational background:

I earned three college degrees including Associate of Arts degree in Early Children Development, Bachelor of Arts degree in Human Development, and Master of Science degree in Psychology.

What am I doing in the Hubpages?

I'm here to write my hubs here to see how readers would respond and share the comments. I enjoy reading all people's hubs and making new friends here.

Please do not hesitate to contact me anytime, any day, and anywhere! Have positive thoughts!

Happy Writing and Reading!
