Michael and Anastasia


Joy Anastasia YoderSome call me Joy, some call me Anastasia, and most people have called me Angelina, my twin sister’s name, a time or two.

I was born and raised in small town Central Pennsylvania, the firstborn in a family of seven. After graduating high school, I spend a few years of working odd jobs and traveling the world, eventually going to Harrisburg Area Community College and Shippensburg University for a degree in Elementary Education. I now have been teaching second grade at Halifax Elementary for five years, and have a masters degree in Educational Strategies and Development. I love Jesus, forests, travel, people, dancing, and beauty in all its forms.

And, I very much love Michael Brewer!

Michael and I met at a Christmas party three years ago and was immediately struck with his warmth, emphatic nature, and tales of his travels. After almost a year of dancing around the idea, we started dating, and the rest is history! He completely surprised me in November when he "crashed" what I thought was a girls’ day out to lunch by showing up dressed up as a waiter, with a ring on a platter, to ask me to marry him.

I can’t wait for the next step of our adventure to begin!
Thank you for being part of our journey.
