“We live in a world that works so hard to make everything appear just right. This is especially true within the church, where if you are a leader, you have such a high expectancy to never show or have weakness. My friend, Brian Johnson, shatters all these facades to pieces with his book “When God Becomes Real.” Brian helps us see once again, the power and lifeline of praise, not just on the mountain peak, but deep in the valley. I know you will find strength, hope and encouragement for your own journey through this book.”
“When God Becomes Real” is Brian’s incredible testimony of making what God has done for him bigger than what any person or life experience did to him. This book will challenge you to cultivate a life of worship and immersing yourself in Scripture so that you too can develop a faith that cannot be shaken, no matter what you may face.
“There are moments in life when the enemy simply comes in like a flood… and in those seasons it feels like drowning would almost be sweet relief compared to the terror that ensues. In ‘When God becomes real’ Brian Johnson opens his heart and bares his soul as he shares his most personal and powerful life story. I am confident that this book will lead your heart to the welcomed truth of God’s presence in the midst of any trying time… declaring again the wonder and power of Christ Jesus, the name that is above every other name.”
