Forty years ago or so. . .

Hi everyone! I know, I know, it’s not Friday but I wanted to slip in a quick blog post today about one of my team members, Joyce Frazier!

Joyce just celebrated her 40th year at LifeWay! Forty years ago was 1971. . .do you remember 1971? Nope, I don’t . . . I was born in 1971! heh heh ! ! ! (actually, she started in 1968 but I don’t think they had invented counting back then :D . . .or she didn’t officially start until 1971).

When I was in the Youth group at my church, I went through a program called, DiscipleYouth I. Joyce is listed as one of the team members that worked on that program! :D I like to tease her occasionally about that! (so, she might be indirectly responsible on how I act!) Ah ha ha ! ! ! just kidding!

Here are some other interesting facts from 1971!
