"As the years pass, we quickly learn that time really does fly!"
"We’ve all made mistakes and committed sins.
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23 KJV)
Through the grace of Jesus Christ, we can be forgiven and made whole.
Forgiveness is real and awesome! Try it; you’ll like it!"
While sitting in her office at the Urban Institute in Washington, DC, Johanna realized she wanted to spend as much time with her children as possible. Johanna knew giving up a nice career position for the sake of her children was a privilege. While her children were young, Johanna taught at a private preschool two blocks from her home. She was also a Director of the Summer Playground program for Parks & Recreation with over two hundred children registered ages six to fifteen.
Later, her writing ability and creativity led her to a position in the county school system. Johanna worked in various high schools in a program to improve teaching techniques and identify teens needing help. After attending the funeral of a sixteen-year-old, she recognized that she wanted and needed to help more than one person at a time. Her passion for helping others ignited her pen.
Johanna has devoted much of her time to helping abused women and teens. Despite the risk, she walked the streets of Los Angeles encouraging prostitutes and runaways to make a better choice for themselves. Her booklet, Reflections of a Wounded Soul, is designed to get runaways off the street and help them comprehend they have value.
In her innate role as a Life Coach, Johanna has spent decades helping people to identify and solve problems, offering hope and encouragement on the path to finding their worth.
After moving to a different state, Johanna entered Corporate Real Estate and was a District manager for years. She also worked with Safe Child, a program helping elementary aged children and identifying those at risk.
Outside of her contributions to self help, Johanna’s creativity spilled into her writing. Author of books, children’s books, screenplays, and more, Johanna’s originality, imagination and inspiration abound.
Not only does Johanna believe in miracles, she freely admits she depends on them. She currently resides in North Carolina with her husband.
"When we keep God and our family first,
we make fewer mistakes and have less regret."
