New author Renee Johnson and I have communicated through social networks and by telephone. She is at once enthusiastic and complex in her pursuit of her passion for writing and speaking and her desire to understand the challenges of balancing the promises of the Christian faith with the challenges of day-to-day life. Her first book, filled with simple and practical daily devotionals is called  Faithbook of Jesus: Connecting with Jesus Daily has already sold more copies in presale than most books sell once they hit the shelves. These one-pagers are geared toward readers in their late teens or 20s.  

Check out a free sample chapter here! Or, if you are ready to pull the trigger, you can purchase a copy at www.faithbookofjesus.com.
