​Inspiring Ivy ~ Courage and Care in China and Beyond.

Do you need a friend who will inspire your soul? Then meet my magnificent Grandmother! She deserved a book because she was magnificent in her love, courage and care. Her story is an adventure that overcame great poverty, addiction and inequality She had to share her shoes with her sisters, had one coat between then and an alcoholic father. She survived two world wars, the great depression, the 1918 global pandemic, several miscarriages and a ton of illness. She was remarkable whilst being the quietest woman in the world!

Have you struggled with prejudice, restriction or injustice of any sort? Then meet Ivy who was an early advocate of women’s rights, equality of opportunity and fighting for all that was good in the world. Indeed, she was never drunk, never wore trousers and never dreamt that she would be running a mission hospital in China! Perhaps what happened to her before and after China was equally as powerful. Whatever is happening in your life, there are words of Ivy wisdom, wit and warmth to help you through.

“Brilliant book that’ll help you along your journey. Lifejoy kept my spirits lifted and hopes high during difficult times of illness. I really like the way the book is split into lots of small nuggets of advice, poems & prayers. This is the perfect structure for me as someone who likes to dip in and out in the morning or before bed. That being said, when it first arrived I read it start to finish!”
