12715619_1954774434748464_3161613179124984620_nIt is said that a journey begins with the first step but I believe that it actually begins with a gentle push from God.  The first time I heard Johnnette speak was in 2003 at a small church called St. Mary’s in Lutz, FL.  I purchased her book, “Full of Grace” and fell in love with the concept of Women and the Abundant Life.
