She died at the age of 79 in 2017. Married to an aeronautical engineer, David, they had two children and an active ministry in Great Britain and Cyprus. She held a degree in theology and history and was an expert teacher of the deaf but she was best known as an author of more than 40 books. Joyce Huggett had a special love for God and interest in prayer. Her books, Learning the Language of Prayer and The Joy of Listening to Godwould be excellent books to read.

Have you ever walked up to someone, introduced yourself, listened to the other person’s name and then promptly forgotten it? I hate it when that happens! Kevin Trudeau has a course called Mega Memory. I listened to his tapes during my thirteen-hour drive to Fort Hunter Liggett, California. My intent was to improve my memory (especially for names), so I listened to the tapes I’d heard before but forgotten.
Dennis the Menace and I would have got along great when it comes to our dislike of bathtubs. He didn’t like to get clean, I don’t like the time it takes to wait for a tub to fill up. I’d rather be in the shower, get clean and get going. Maybe that’s my problem—I’m always in a hurry to get to the next thing.
