Joy Cruse grew up in Oklahoma as a preacher’s daughter. Growing up in the church armed her with God’s Word during the arduous battle that would come years later.  Joy and Tait’s son, Connor, was diagnosed with cancer at the age of four.   After a four-year battle, he went to be with the Lord on July 10, 2009.  Her new book Hope Transformed is a compilation of journal entrees, experiences, prayers and spiritual lessons that were part of the family’s journey. Joy & Tait live with their three children in Frisco, Texas.
