Joy Ibsen now lives in sunny, urban Albuquerque, New Mexico, after moving in 2018 from Michigan' Upper Peninsula where she and her husband, Don Lenef, lived on the shores of Lake Superior next to Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park. They previously resided in Trout Creek, Michigan, and Oak Park and Evanston, Illinois.

Ibsen has published several other books: UNAFRAID, Here and Hereafter, the Eternity Connection, Songs of Denmark, Songs to Live By; and Poetry in the Porcupines. UNAFRAID II, the second edition, is coming out shortly with 12 new chapters which take place in 2021 during the pandemic!

Joy's work is infused with Danish-American culture, values and spirit-particularly the work of N.F.S. Grundtvig the Danish theologian, educator, politician, hymn writer, poet and politician. For 14 years she edited the periodical Church and Life, which features the philosophy and theology of Grundtvig. Joy spent two months in Denmark, studying Grundtvig's relevance to modern life by interviewing 32 Danish citizens.
