Merry Christmas and Blessings for a New Year

By Kevin Wayne Johnson | Authors , Books , Christianity , Religion , Spirituality

As we come to a close on another year, I want to take the time to wish you a very, very Merry Christmas and a prosperous new year in 2009.  As we reflect on the old, and look forward to the new, allow God to quiet your spirit and mind for the coming days.  Remember, Jesus is the reason for this season….so rest and be still as you make necessary adjustments in your life for 2009.

For example, 2008 was the year of simplicity for the Johnson family.  We simplified our lives by getting organized, planned better and took our time to make informative decisions.

In 2009, my prayer for my family will center on financial management due to our dismal economy.  Not only will we cut back on unnecessary and worthless expenses, we will better manage what we have.  God’s blessings extend into our finances and they must be managed according to His Word.  This is my prayer.  Please do the same within your family.

God bless you and enjoy God’s blessings in 2009.

Congratulations President-elect Obama

By Kevin Wayne Johnson | Books , Christianity , Religion , Spirituality

Congratulations President-elect Obama.  Well done.

Today is a new and exciting day! 

This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
(Psalm 118:24)

Change is, and was, needed and will inevitably
happen.  What we experienced on November 4th was phenominal and God-ordained.
As I’ve stated since last January, President-elect Obama has the favor of God on his
life and there’s nothing that anyone can do about it. 

And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject unto them: but his
mother kept all these sayings in her heart. And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature,
and in favour with God and man.

(Luke 2:52)

The global excitement of his election is a clear indication that God Almighty is in the
midst of his campaign, thoughts,ideas and promises.

The voters have spoken loud and clear, Obama is our catalyst for change in the
United States of America.  Let’s support his leadership, candor, professionalism,
demeanor, excellence, Godly spirit and attention to detail.  Brace yourself for a
tremendous move of God in our midst.

The best is yet to come to unify our world in the years to come.

National Reading Group Month

By Kevin Wayne Johnson | Books , Christianity , Religion , Spirituality

Are you a fan of literacy?  I believe that you are.  Statistics show that higher literacy rates lead to higher education and ultimately to a higher quality of life.  Isn’t that a great goal to have?

Join me this month in promoting reading and literacy and my many attempts to get groups to read and enjoy great books together.  With the release of our new Study Guide, I am encouraging small groups to gather within their local churches, book clubs, libraries, workplaces, organizations and homes.

Will you join me?

Remembering 9-11

By Kevin Wayne Johnson | Books , Christianity , Religion , Spirituality

This is the day that the LORD has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.

This Scripture reminds me daily about how exciting it is to be alive and well.  As we remember our loved
ones and colleagues that were lost on this day seven years ago, let’s celebrate their lives in lieu of
mourning their untimely and undeserved deaths.  I remember watching that day’s events while in mid-town Manhattan (New York City), from Three Times Square on the 20th floor, in 2001 and how suddenly the events transpired.

Celebrate life today and live it in remembrance of those who were lost on 9-11-2001.

It’s Your Time

By Kevin Wayne Johnson | Books , Christianity , Religion , Spirituality

In a couple of weeks from today, we will enter into yet another change in seasons.  As the vegetation (plants, trees, grass) as well as the air quality and temperature change to accomodate God’s perfect will, so should we. 

We should change and make adjustments in life based our individual growth, development and maturity.  Have you grown in 2008?  Have you achieved your goals and dreams for this year that you set in January?  If so, outstanding!  If not, change and adjust today in preparation for the next few months ahead.

Another Trip Accomplished

By Kevin Wayne Johnson | Books , Christianity , Religion , Spirituality

Hello all.  Well, we just returned from two more dynamic and progessive cities: Miami and Nassau Bahamas.  What a joy to meet such wonderful people – that is why I write.  Each trip consisted of meet and greets with key industry insiders and one local pastor in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.  Borders Books, Afro-In Books and Cafe, Community Church of God, 100% Christian BookShop, The Christian BookShop and Bahamas Faith Ministries International treated me as their guest over the past six to seven days.  Mr. Baughn Miller, Bahamas office of tourism, Religious Market, was my tour guide in Nassau, the capital of the Islands of the Bahamas.  Wonderful trip and thanks to all!

Greetings from Seattle

By Kevin Wayne Johnson | Books , Christianity , Religion , Spirituality

I write this morning from cloudy, yet pleasant, Seatlle, Washington, in the upper northwest portion of the United States.  Here for three literary events to promote the Give God the Glory! titles, my wife and I are having a blast.  Yesterday, July 4th, we both participated, along with other authors included Susan Taylor – former editor and publisher for Essence Magazine, in the 3rd annual Links Literary Showcase. The very supportive women of The Links, Incorporate, at their 36th National Assembly, warmly embraced the authors and were inquisitive about our individual and collective works.

For the remainder of this weekend, I visit the JOY Christian Bookstore (Saturday) and the Berean Love and Bible Fellowship Church (Sunday) to continue to spread the message of God’s goodness.  I pray for your weekend in loaded with love, peace, unity, and together let’s Give God the Glory!

By the way, did you watch Venus win Wimbledon this morning?  Another great victory for a fantastic child of God.

Our First 30 days – My Journey

By Kevin Wayne Johnson | Books , Christianity , Religion , Spirituality

I am close to completing my first 30 days of my international outreach leading up to the publication of our first Study Guide in the Give God the Glory! book series.  While completing the updates to our two websites – and .org – we have also updated our page, listed the Study Guide at, and are about to embark upon the Google Book Search Program for our entire series. These activities aid our ability to reach a global market as intended.

To piggyback on our current efforts, the manuscript goes off to our editor on next week and in July, we embark upon a four-city tour (see our July itinerary): Seattle, Charlotte, Miami/Fort Lauderdale, and The Bahamas Islands (Nassau).  We have scheduled excellent events for each city that will prove to be quite enjoyable and profitable for our ministry and book series.  Expanded our network is key!

More updates on next week.  Enjoy God’s blessings!

Along My Journey

By Kevin Wayne Johnson | Books , Christianity , Religion , Spirituality

Today, I am well into our 90-day campaign leading up to the September 2nd release of our first Study Guide in the Give God the Glory! series.  So far, our collective efforts have included a post on, Google Book Search, Baker and Taylor, revision and rewrite (for the Study Guide format) of our first book – Know God and Do the Will of God Concerning Your Life, notification (via email and direct mail with postcards) to multiple churches, bookstores, publishing industry insiders, book clubs, and libraries in the United States and nine countries around the world.  Boy, I’m excited!!

Next week, our rewrite goes to the editor for a complete proof and editing, then on to be typeset and formatted for printing.  Then, my family and I embark upon a four city book tour to continue to promote the series plus the new Study Guide: Seattle for the Links, Inc. National Assembly plus one local church, Charlotte for the National Christian Writer’s Conference plus one local church, Miami for several venues including Borders Books, Afro-In Books and Cafe and one local church, then on to the Bahamas with The Christian Book Shop.  We continue to pray that we receive 5,000 pre-publication orders.  Spread the word for us!!

God bless until next time.  Enjoy God’s blessings.
