Everyone loves a good fairy tale and Island Girl: A Triumph of the Spirit, from author Norma Joyce Dougherty, fits the bill. Norma shares how in 1970, God led her, a poor, young farm girl from Prince Edward Island, Canada to live out a real-life fairy tale on the world stage. "I became a world traveler and overnight success as Miss Dominion of Canada and contestant in the Miss World, Miss Universe, Queen of the Pacific, and semi-finalist in Miss International. She found fame and fortune," but adds, "I lost my home, my self, and a sense of belonging. It took many years to find me again." Women of every age will relate with her identity crisisa crisis that is all too common in this post-modern era due to the bombardment of direct marketing campaigns designed to focus our goals on looking, acting, and being someone we're not. Norma Joyce recounts her story in a lively "fairy-tale" theme as she shares the long journey from a world where lies and deception prevail to one where the truth of Jesus Christ is her power source, her light, radiance, beauty, peace, joy and her triumph.
Norma Joyce Dougherty received her B.A. in Philosophy, with a minor in Political Science from prestigious Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC. During the past twenty years, Norma has volunteered with the international womens ministry, Stonecroft Ministries, Inc. in Kansas City, Missouri as a motivational speaker, conference planner, and a leader of womens Bible study groups. She also served as a District Consulting Coordinator and a member of the National Board of Directors. She states, "I do not claim to be an expert on any one subject. I share what I have learned from both my successes and failures, in hopes they will help another young woman going through the same experiences. I believe my message is powerful for those seeking authentic validation to the questions...who am I, where do I belong, and what is my purpose in life? Norma Joyce resides in Charlotte, NC.
