Greetings to all.
I am Evelyn M. Johnson. I was born and raised in NYC on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. My background is Hispanic of Puerto Rican culture. I am married to Arthur (23 years), am a mother of 3 sons, grandmother of 11 and ggreatmother of 2. I am an Associate Pastor at Bethel AME Church, a graduate of Hampton University (BA), Payne Theological Seminary (MDiv) and am currently in the Doctor of Ministry program at Regent University. I am the author of Pleas, Praises and Promises: A Personal Devotional Guide to 36 Two-liner Psalms for People on the Go! I have also written my memoir Moving from Bitterness to Betterment, Surviving the Pain of Abuse, which will be released soon.
I love words and believe that there is always room for improvement concerning our vocabulary. I am a people-person and love to connect to people. Who else do we have on this earth but each other? We should treat each other as we would treat ourselves. If we do not care about ourselves, how in the world are we going to care for others? I also believe that wisdom is just a journey of time, and that we shoudl enjoy the ride.
I am new to the writing industry but hope to meet and learn from as many writers as I possibly can. If you see me somewhere, stop by and say hello. :)
