Author, Speaker, Radio & Podcast Guest, & Brain Injury Survivor - Persevering through to encourage you to Never give up & Always have Hope, as we all struggle to Keep our Freedoms
Hi! My name is Carolyn Rae (C. Rae) Johnson and I am a Traumatic Brain Injury survivor. I know first hand what it's like to struggle...physically, emotionally & financially while learning to accept the "new" me & adapt to changes in relationships and also career & job choices due to limitations developing from my brain injury. As a result, I am deeply committed to sharing with you understanding, compassion, empathy, practical help and inspiration through my own personal experiences, challenges, tough struggles and life events; to hopefully encourage you to Not ever give up - but rather hang onto "Hope"!
I want to encourage you to find hope and healing, to better cope with the many life challenging events you may be faced with, "what life throws at us", to be able to Endure and Persevere through life's toughest battles, and to live a victorious life - becoming a Warrior on a journey toward a Bright Future.
You can learn about what you are struggling with, while finding promising suggestions that have personally helped me throughout my recovery process as well as cascading health issues, broken hearts, strained relationships, disrupted plans, and more; that can positively impact future challenges in promising ways.
You can still have Dreams and make new Plans for a Future filled with Hope!
Remember, there is "Hope" that a "Good" can come out of a "bad"!

Here's Just a Few Customer Reviews:
"AUTO-IMMUNE DISEASE & Fibromyalgia: The Traumatic Brain Injury Connection" Matt Dahl on Oct 01, 2018
I've just read for the second time since I am dyslexic but I'm really saying things that I never noticed or realized about myself before. This would be helpful for anybody who's had a traumatic brain injury or knows anybody that has suffered one. Fascinating how the mind works.
"Traumatic Brain Injury TBI & Post-Concussion Syndrome PCS": THIS GAL IS TOUGH! Frank DiMeo on Oct 01, 2018
I first met Carolyn and her husband, John, a couple of years ago.
They fought the way through this side by side.
Neither one ran away or just gave up.
I highly commend them!
Read this book and get one for a friend too!
Juniper Tree: INSPIRATIONAL BOOK! Karen on Sep 29, 2018
Personally I loved this book. It gets to the core of what it is like to be a person of faith in a time of chaos. I got from the author that Christianity is not a perfectly paved road , but one with bumps and potholes. She put herself where we all are, in the trenches! But through faith and grace we can and will prevail. Very inspirational read!
There is hope for your freedom from all that overwhelms you. Always have hope! Never give up!
"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."-Philippians 4:13
Are You Running into Obstacles as You Search for a Way Out of Your Troubles?
Do you feel stuck and filled with anxiety, overwhelming stress, and depression from the chaos in your life? Have you had a detrimental injury that flipped your whole world upside down with limited help from the medical community? Have you experienced deep hurts that have not only broken your heart, but shattered it into a billion pieces?
Life has a funny way of throwing us some curve balls, some really challenging trials and very difficult storms to navigate through. They can involve, finances, injuries, relationship troubles, and more that send us off on a roller coaster ride we never even asked to be on, yet cannot wait to get off. We search in desperation for answers, for help with our daily struggles and often wonder if we will ever make it through.
I am here to tell you that you will make it through and you will find hope in the process for better days to come. You will find light in your darkness...so you must Not give up, ever! You will gain a strength, an endurance, that will not only enable you to persevere but to also find peace and joy in the process. You will find out who you are, what you are made of and what you were made for! Through my own personal experiences that touch on these trials and many more, I share what I have not only learned but also witness and live, daily!
