Anita Keagy Inspiring people to spend time with God every day through Bible reading and prayer

Anita Keagy found JoyShop Ministries in 2006 with one simple mission: To inspire people to prioritize spending time with God every day through Bible reading and prayer. Since then, she has traveled nationwide and internationally, sharing her message of seeking God first each day as the key to abundant life and joy. Thousands of people have heard and responded to her dynamic message at conferences, retreats, schools, festival workshops and churches.

Anita's deep understanding of the Lord has come through a challenging set of circumstances. With a compelling story of how God used a tough situation in her life for His glory, Anita candidly shares about her scandalous teenage pregnancy as a preacher’s daughter and the difficult choice to place her daughter for adoption. Although she never had the privilege to see or hold her child, Anita never stopped yearning to know her first-born daughter, even as she married and had four more children. Through a file of letters and the help of her adoption agency, Anita finally met her firstborn 21 years later. God used Anita’s own desire to know her child to impress upon her how much He wants to know His children-us! With that knowledge, a ministry was born that is now thriving and impacting lives every day.

Anita is the author of, “The File: A Mother and Child’s Life-Changing Reunion.” Her motivational 6 session DVD series, “Seeking God First,” found on RightNow Media, PureFlix, Amazon Prime, Crossflix and Vision Video, has encouraged and challenged those who long for a deeper relationship with God. Her DVD, “Letters from an Unknown Daughter” is her personal testimony of motherhood, hope, and healing. Her book and DVD series, along with additional supportive materials, can be purchased on her website

Anita Keagy lives in Washington Boro, Pennsylvania, with her husband Paul. She is the mother of 5 adult children, and 11 grandchildren. She attended Messiah College and received training from both Kay Arthur, of Precept Ministries, and Anne Graham Lotz.

"Anita did a wonderful job speaking at our Women's Retreat. She was down to earth and connected very well with the ladies that attended. Her message was well received and she was very easy to talk with and work with."

— Crystal Springs Baptist Camp, Medina, ND

“Anita is an excellent communicator and has a most needed message for people today. She inspires and encourages with her stories, but most of all, it is her love for the Lord that comes shining through. Each message is well organized, thought provoking and challenges people to not only read the Bible but to simply drink in every word and then apply it to their lives.”

— Big Dream Ministries, Atlanta, GA

“Anita was fantastic! We heard many, many compliments on her presentation and powerful testimony. She has a great personality that really lends itself to telling her story. We could also tell she was genuinely interested in our center and its success in helping women and families in our community.”
