Joy Eggerichs Reed is the Founder of Punchline Agency and has also been a speaker herself over the last decade.
Between 2005 and 2015 Joy worked as Conference Director for her parents Love and Respect marriage conferences. Then she created the Love and Respect Now website and The Illumination Project small group study as resources for her generation on the topic of singleness, dating and marriage. In 2014, Christianity Today named Joy one of 33 leaders under the age of 33 shaping the next generation.
Over the course of the last decade of creating content and speaking, Joy has discovered a love for learning through interviewing. She enjoys hosting events, interviewing speakers and mediating dialogues. She has taken several years of improv comedy classes to help her listen, add levity, and let the conversation and event unfold in a unique way. Joy enjoys helping others communicate on camera, be themselves on stage and develop talks and presentations.
Joy and her husband Matt have been living in Paris, France since 2017 and have two children, Millie and Emerson. Joy has given them alter egos named Rita and Rick and posts about them constantly on Instagram. Only time will tell how much therapy this will result in them needing.
Joy recently published Get to the Publishing Punchline, A Fun 30-Day Guide to Get Your Book Ready for the World. “Fun” being the key word. With chapter titles like “ICE, ICE, PAGES” & “LET’S GIVE ‘EM SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT,” you will be laughing as much as you are learning as you move through the pages.
Every page of this book feels like a folded-up letter passed to you from your best friend in class telling you how to take the next steps in the assignment that is overwhelming you.
