Wild Joy in 2022 | Aimee Cruz Talks to Author Joannie Garner about Dreams, Hope and Motherhood


  • Joannie Garner is awesome. In this episode, Aimee has an uplifting talk with Mom to two teens and author of the new book, Wild Joy. In Wild Joy, Joannie Garner talks about her journey where she learned to survive, overcome and thrive. Joannie lost her own Mom when she was 12 to suicide. She was only 30 Years old. As you can imagine, this loss changed the direction of her life. She didn't think she could be a mother, yet at 30 years old she found herself pregnant with lots of fear surrounding her coming new role as a Mother. Today Joannie's kids are 17 and 18 years old.
  • Her message to all is simple It's never too late to go after lost dreams, no matter what age we are. Joannie's dream was to write and coach and her book, Wild Joy, coming to life is proof dreams come true when you work for them.
