Dr. Joyce Hunt Brown, N.M.D., Ph.D.

Dr. Joyce Hunt Brown has had an interesting and challenging life. After a lifetime of heartbreaking tragedies, the great turning point of her life arrived.

Now equipped with a wealth of heavenly answers for earthly challenges, this was the transforming incident where she went from desperately wanting to die, to desperately wanting to help others live.

Unfortunately, the major life challenges were not over.

Through her ongoing work as a guest speaker and trainer, she has a long record of helping organizations strengthen morale, improve communication, resolve conflict, and increase productivity.

As a certified crisis chaplain, Dr. Joyce also continues to visit with groups of teens at youth detention centers, inmates at prisons, various different groups in churches, and at-risk kids in schools. To continue this work Dr. Joyce founded Stress and Grief Relief, Inc. a 501(c)(3) non-profit, public charity in 1999.

Making frequent guest appearances on television as “The Hope Doctor,” Dr. Joyce is the host and producer of The Hope Doctor Show, where she shares from her remarkable story, and the eternal wisdom that radically transformed and gave new meaning and purpose to her life.

What People Are Saying

Mark Victor Hansen:

“Dr. saving lives” and having “a life-changing impact…”

Dr. David W. Allan, Atomic Clock Scientist, author of It’s About Time: Science Harmonizing with Religion:

“Dr. Joyce Hunt Brown is one of the most remarkable and inspiring people I have ever met. Her book Heavenly Answers has saved innumerable people’s lives who had been suicidal. After reading her book describing her near-death experience, we were so deeply touched that we made contact with her, and have been the best of friends ever since. Joyce has helped countless people deal with grief and major stress issues in their lives. It is interesting, that more recently others have shown how almost all disease, which includes suicidal tendencies, are linked to stress. Society owes a great debt of gratitude to Dr. Brown for her pioneering work and continued contributions. How fortunate we are to have her book. It, undoubtedly, will be used countless times in helping people move through their challenges in life.”

Janice Kapp Perry, Author, Composer:

“I want to thank Joyce Brown for putting things back in perspective for me. The day after I read this book (I read it in one sitting!), I viewed my life from a completely different, and much improved perspective. It’s great to be reminded in such a compelling way about what really matters most—now and in eternity.”

Kim and Kay Cherry, Founders of ALS Winners:

“Dr. Joyce Brown is one of the most upbeat and inspiring people we know. If you look at her life story, you will wonder how she could possibly be so upbeat. She has endured more heartbreak and trials than anyone we know. And yet, her belief in God is strong, her commitment to help her fellowman never wavers, and her positive attitude never quits. I, Kim, was diagnosed with ALS in 2011 and we relate well to that portion of her story. Many of my symptoms were the same as Dr. Brown’s. In 2016, I was termed an ALS reversal. Though I have not completely healed, we continue to enjoy life and move forward. This new book is valuable for anyone looking to improve their life in multiple ways and is totally inspiring. We hope you will read it.”

Darla Isackson, Author of Finding Hope While Grieving Suicide:

“I have firsthand knowledge that the book Heavenly Answers is actually saving lives. The author, Dr. Joyce Brown, shatters the myth that all you have to do is kill yourself to get a heavenly place of peace and beauty. Joyce’s near-death experience of being on the Other Side convinced her that every day in this life is precious, that we can’t win the prize if we take a shortcut and never finish the race, and that there is purpose to every life. Joyce was suicidal from the age of eight, and when her father committed suicide, she very nearly joined him. She often saw suicide as an option to escape the problems of this life, and consequently, often avoided the problem-solving process. Her experience on the Other Side changed her life forever. Her book should be read by every person who struggles with suicidal thoughts. To those in a position to make a difference, I hope you will lend your influence and help correct some of the false ideas that are rampant in our country. Joyce’s files are steadily filling with letters from people whose lives have been saved by reading her book.”
