Gail Johnson head shot

Hello! It is so nice to meet you. Welcome.

And now that we’ve met let me tell you about my life.

I am a wife, mom, and overcomer. I’m a woman on a spiritual journey, and I invite you to come along.

Being in the center of his wheel is about staying balanced. As a wife, mom, and writer, I can quickly become unbalanced, flopping about with the cares of life like an uncentered piece of clay on a potter’s wheel. But, Master Potter continually draws me to the center of His wheel to refine me more and more into His image. It is there I find the joy and peace I so desperately crave.

Unfortunately, I didn’t always run to Him. In fact, this journey didn’t begin with sunshine and roses, but heartache, depression, suicidal thoughts, and self-destructive actions. But thankfully, the Lord didn’t give up on me. His love won me over, and I eventually gave my heart to Him.

Afterward, I studied hard and passed state boards for cosmetology. AND THEN, I married the man of my dreams, had two loving kids, moved and remodeled a house.

Now, I love sharing my passion for life and Christ through the power of the written word. I invite you to “taste and see” the hope I’ve found in a faithful God through my stories, articles, songs, and poem.

I also love:

My Heavenly Father, His Son, Jesus Christ, my Lord, and Savior, and the Holy Spirit, my Comforter, and Guide.

My wonderful family. I can’t say enough about them!

Amazing family and friends (including my online friends!) who love and support me.

Born and raised in the South, I love all things southern—well maybe not the mosquitoes. But who doesn’t like fried chicken, fried okra, and fried squash? You get the idea. And let’s not forget good music and maple pecan ice cream!

I hope you’ll join me as I share this incredible season of life!

A little more about me:

  • Coffee is my cup of southern comfort.
  • I have at least one DIY project in progress at all times.
  • I four-wheel because I love it and to make my kids anxious. (You should’ve seen my daughter the day I did a ‘donut’ around the utility pole. Their favorite saying—”Your bones won’t heal like they use to.”) Oh well.
  • I awake with music in my head. What? You don’t?

So now that we’ve met, why don’t you grab a glass of iced tea with or without lemon, or a cuppa coffee, relax and stay awhile! And while you’re here, how about sharing something about yourself!

  1. I relate to everything you shared. 35 years ago the Lord started giving a song every morning that would cover what I needed for that day or be the theme of my day. What a blessed gift He gives us through music. Love it! Blessings!

  2. I love the statement that you are an Overcomer. I started a church called Overcomers Church in January. God is doing a special work, and I’m humbled to be a part of it. I love the beautiful work that God does in saving the lost and making them like His dear Son. I look forward to reading what God gives you.

    • Thank you for stopping by and the follow, Pastor. Your church sounds like a wonderful place to be! Yes, the Lord is amazing! Words fail to explain his love and mercy. He is my strength. I look forward to reading your blog posts in my reader.

  3. Hi Gail! I’m glad to have discovered your lovely blog and website through your interview with my friend, Lynnette. It makes me wonder if you have an interest in interviewing a Christian children’s book author. I’m a member of Northwest Christian Writer’s Association, and a British Christian publisher has published my series for children (two so far). They are novels for ages 8-12 about an owl and a pirate-wannabe mouse who become friends on a Holy Land quest.

  4. Gail thanks for stopping by my page and following. I pray you move ever closer to God and deeper in your walk with God. I will look forward to reading your post and experiencing what the Lord is doing in your life. May God speed your work.

    Much love Tom
