Christy Johnson

A microphone is like a stick of dynamite in Christy’s hand. As a soul-health coach, popular national speaker and founder of Living Soul, Christy’s driving passion is to help women find hope and strength in the aftermath of failed marriages and toxic relationships. Her video teaching series for women, Love U, is used in small discipleship groups nationwide.


In 1998, Christy’s life took a dramatic turn after the death of her two-year old son, Jake, who died in a tragic car accident while her ex-husband was driving under the influence of several narcotics. In the midst of her darkness, however, Christy found hope. She often relates, “Every shard of pain prepared me for my purpose. I knew my destiny the day my son died.”


Fueled by a passion to see other women set free, Christy set aside her career in banking to begin writing and speaking. Audiences respond instantly to her warm personality, but when they hear her story they witness the undeniable power of God in the midst of tragedy. Christy’s journey through abuse and forgiveness gives her a unique boldness, authenticity and authority to challenge other women to race after their own freedom and find healing for their souls.


Christy is the author of Love Junkies, 7 Steps for Breaking the Toxic Relationship Cycle. She was a contributing writer for God, Girls, and Getting Connected by Robin Marsh and Lauren Nelson and has several stories published in Chicken Soup for the Soul.
