My name is Kerry Johnson and I’m a child of God, mommy, wife, sister, daughter, friend, writer, reader, lover of the outdoors, dog and turtle mommy, occasional triathlete, and chai tea addict. I enjoy long walks with my squirrel-obsessed dog, reading with our boys, word wrestling and wrangling, exercising, uninterrupted (key word) meals out with my hubby, and reading-writing. My favorite book is the Bible and I love learning new truths from God’s Word.
I’m an eclectic mix of social but mostly introverted, tomboy but occasionally feminine, clean but not particularly organized, sarcastic but overly sensitive, laid-back but too uptight, and creative but not at all artistic. I fight my overanalyzer-tendencies by trusting in all God’s purposes, which are clearly above us but never, ever without us.
I married the handsome blond teenager who teased me over the Whopper board at Burger King 17 years ago. I’m grateful for the steady, loyal man God chose for me and the two sweet monkeys (actually we’re pretty sure they’re little boys) we’ve been blessed with.
Though still searching for the volume button on our children, I am thankful such great joy comes in these huggable, loving, enthusiastic packages.
I have a childhood-born, adult-tested faith in God’s most precious gift, Jesus. I was 7 when I asked Jesus into my heart, sitting on my mom’s lap in our Connecticut living room. I wasn’t sure how He would fit, but He did, and it’s absolutely the best decision I’ve ever made. Jesus is my saving, patient, unchanging Love. My heart’s desire is to share His love and the abundant life I’ve found in Him in relevant, meaningful ways through my writing.
I have one book nearly finished and 17 random writing ideas running through my mind at any given time. The label writer is perfect because it excuses the characters who often take up residence in my active imagination. I enjoy meeting and learning from other writers on this journey of faith and words.
Although publication is part of the writing dream, drawing closer to my Savior is the highest goal. After all, my love of and enjoyment in writing is a pure gift from God. It took me too long to realize I void my gifts from Him unless they are used for Him.
I’m all yours, Lord.
