Who Best to Tell My Story? An Unforgettable Journey of Hope and Healing
Monica M Johnson
Monica M. Johnson is an inspirational writer and speaker whose victorious life story brings hope and healing to women and men who have been abused or neglected in some way—physically, emotionally, and/or spiritually. Monica has earned her B.S. degree in Business and Life Coaching. As a Holistic Life Coach, Monica has over 20 years of experience effectively speaking into the lives of both men and women. Monica enjoys interpreting for the Deaf and teaching sign language. She is a contributor to 365 Meditations for Couples and 365 Meditations for Women. Monica is comfortable interacting with individuals and groups, and welcomes the opportunity to speak about empowerment and spiritual issues. She considers it an absolute joy to share with others the conquering power of God’s love—a love that enables us to overcome the sin and the struggles of our lives. Monica currently resides in Annapolis, Maryland. She absolutely delights in mothering of her adult son, Walter III, and her three teenagers Isaac, Lisa-Nicole, and Nábien.
Driving over an icy bridge, early one January morning, Monica Johnson’s car slid on a patch of black ice. The small car swerved helplessly and uncontrollably, veering into the path of unsuspecting oncoming traffic. As tires squealed and metal collided, life would never be the same. “Who Best to Tell My Story” is an unforgettable journey that describes the faith that is necessary when one’s life seems to veer hopelessly out of control. Anyone that has ever driven over black ice can identify with the complete and utter sense of hopelessness that result as one’s life makes an abrupt turn for the worse. Overcoming hearing loss, muteness, paralysis, and damage to every internal organ, Monica was able to rely on God and her family to make a complete recovery. Monica’s providential healing has astounded doctors and deepened the faith of everyone who has witnessed her miraculous return to ministry, marriage, motherhood and wholeness while empowering those who feel as if their lives have drifted helplessly out of control.
Woman/men who suffer with sickness, low self-esteem and/or depression, or who have been abused or neglected in some way—physically, emotionally, and/or spiritually.
