Jackie M. Johnson

I am an author, blogger and writer who creates hope-filled and encouraging books, blog posts and other inspiring content so you can heal your heart, reawaken joy, and refresh your life-weary soul.

Life can be demanding. You get depleted, discouraged, or stressed. I can relate. I’ve been there too.

And I’ve found real help and powerful hope to live this hard and messy life through the power of prayer.

Prayer is powerful because God is powerful. He has the wisdom, love and power to make real and lasting changes in my life and in yours.

God helps us live a “life in full bloom,” finding hope and joy despite problems and in the midst of circumstances.

Here’s a bit about my background…


Jackie M. Johnson is the author of the popular Power Prayers for Women, a quick and easy-to-read book packed with spiritual punch for 21 areas of a woman’s life. It includes topic-based content and short prayers about health, finances, family, emotions, dreams and goals, and more.

Jackie is also the author of the helpful breakup recovery resource When Love Ends and the Ice Cream Carton Is Empty. Like a “healing-your-heartbreak coach,” she provides insight and comfort for the healing journey from the dark and painful time to the light of better days ahead—and new beginnings.

In addition, Jackie is the author of the inspiring Praying with Power When Life Gets Tough. Readers can find hope when they need it most with insightful, inspiring content on a variety of topics and powerful prayers for everyday problems—like stress, money issues, grief and loss, relationship issues, lack of confidence, loneliness, and more.
