More About Road to Joy


Cindy Cole Nelson and Kathe Matthews connected in a singing group several years ago. At that time, Cindy was working on her first Christian music album, “Ready to Follow”, and Kathe was compiling short story devotionals and poetry for a book she would later publish entitled, “Live Like a Dandelion”. Road to Joy Ministries was born when God directed their individual passions into a single calling to spread the joy of Christ into people’s lives. Today they speak as a team using skits, humor, biblical teaching, original music, poetry and practical tips at conferences, retreat programs, and other ministry events.

These ladies were at our Annual Women's Retreat. They were awesome, inspirational, humorous, and talented. There message reached out to all the ladies at this retreat. We are planning our retreat for next year and the ladies are still talking about their wonderful experience. We all had a great message on Sharing Grace with Others.

I invited Cindy and Kathe in for our annual Ladies Christmas Cafe. They blessed our church and community with a delightful combination of Cindy's beautiful music, Kathe's poetry, a bit of theatre, and inspirational encourgagement from the scriptures. Their love for the Lord and His word are evident in everything they do. Highly recommend them for any women's event!
