My name is Joe Santucci and I live in New Jersey, the Garden State, where we grow some of the highest property taxes and automobile insurance rates in the United States!  I have worn many hats in my life (some of them quite ugly a story for another time).

I have been a bi-vocational pastor for over 20 years, and along with my Biblical studies I have a degree in business. I also have a background in music as a songwriter, performer, and producer/engineer. For more info on the music visit joesantucci.com

Like all of us I have had my share of starts/stops/wrong turns, fears/victories, laughter/ tears. I am what I consider to be a slow learner, but I have gained some understanding along the way. The reason for this blog is to share what insight I have gained and perhaps be a source of encouragement and the push you might need in your life journey.

Oh, by the way, I take seriously the scripture that says, ” A joyful heart is good medicine,”. I’d rather laugh than cry, and hopefully that’s reflected in the writing.

It’s a new day, a day the Lord has made. Let’s rejoice and be glad!
