My name is Jewell Johnson, and I'd like to share more information about myself. I recently became a widow after 62 years of marriage to my pastor husband. We have six children and nine grandchildren. Besides writing, I enjoy quilting, working out, and reading historical books. In my church, I teach an adult Bible class each Sunday. I belong to a writers' group that meets monthly to critique our works. Besides writing devotionals for The Upper Room, I write poetry and articles. I will keep writing for publication because I feel it is a calling from God, and God has given me things to share.
I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
