When she turned 9, she started piano lessons. At age 10, Joye began playing the guitar. Dr. Joye wrote her first song at 13. Many years later, at 38 years of age, she added playing bass guitar and a little saxophone to her musical capabilities. The 6 string Banjo was added to musical talents in December 2008.

Dr. Joye has been writing and composing her own songs, as well as, rearranging and performing the music of others as a solo artist since 2004.
Joye began singing with her younger sister, Gaye, as a duet for church specials and holiday events, as well as, at various local pageants when they were young children. She was a member of the Irwin Academy Youth Choir which competed on a yearly basis. At 12, Joye joined the Satilla Adult Church Choir.

Dr. Pugh received Christ and was baptized when she was 11 years old. Her love for prophecy began at 6 years of age after having an unusual and prophetic dream about the End of Time. Her gifts of interpreting prophetic events increased even more after reading the Book of Revelation and Hal Lindsey’s "Late Great Planet Earth" at age 13. From there she continued writing speeches for college involving Biblical and Scientific issues affecting this generation. Her Masters thesis was entitled, “Light: A Theory Of Alpha And Omega - From The Beginning Until The End.” Joye continued her research and received accolades from her Curriculum Professor during her doctorial studies for her final paper, “A Theory of Alpha And Omega – From Beginning Until The End.”
Dr. Pugh’s dissertation, “A Program to Decrease Obesity in the Mentally Retarded Adult Population” was a major applied research project encompassing 18 months of training and data collection which allowed her to scientifically prove her theory that mentally retarded adults could achieve the same physical level as that found within the normal population. The subjects, some both mentally and physically handicapped within the clinical trial she developed, all achieved and were presented Presidential Sports Fitness Awards; something no other mentally retarded group had ever achieved. Many of her adult subjects went on to compete in athletic events against non-handicapped individuals, thus proving mentally retarded individuals do not have to remain on the sidelines of life but can successfully engage in strenuous and advanced levels of competitive sports without adverse affects. Dr. Pugh is keenly interested in how the spirit within human beings allows subjects with limited mental and physical capabilities to transcend established expectation. Her theories prove that if the normal population could somehow transcend expectation then there would be no limit to capability; as capability is harnessed by what one believes one can achieve.
Most importantly, for over 30 years now, Dr. Pugh has been involved in researching Biblical prophecy. Joye consults with people from around the world on various issues and current events involving science and religion. She also serves as a consultant in education with M.U.F.O.N. regarding the spiritual and religious aspects of paranormal and UFO experiences.
