Rein Johnson


Heireina Patrei Johnson, affectionately known as “Rein” or “Lady Rein” in art, ministry, and authorship was born and raised in San Francisco, CA to Elder Huey P Johnson and Evangelist Yuvetta Pryor. Her father, prior to his passing right before her birth, prophesied over her in the womb, indicating that she would become a dynamic woman of God carrying on his legacy of high profile ministry and profound commitment to the cause of Christ, and that she would be chosen to bring healing and deliverance to nations. Rein was saved, anointed, and called to preach at the tender age of seven—a ministry prodigy often astounding those who experienced her keen insight, revelations, and theological/exegetical handling of the word. Her ministry was largely developed in the Church of God in Christ where she held many positions in ministry until she was called to further advancement and was licensed as an Evangelist in the AME church prior to a call to support a non-denomination ministry geared toward the marginalized and oppressed.

There is a story behind the ministry that is an unfortunate legacy of being prostituted at the age of four, being molested, being raped, dealing with abortion, violence, low self-esteem, bulimia, and a host of other challenges that she ministered through. However, in 2011 Rein experienced an encounter with God that not only completely healed her, but catapulted her into a ministry of healing and deliverance that would reach and change so many others. Currently, Rein is a highly sought after Evangelist, Prophetess, Revivalist, Speaker, Life Coach, Inspirational Artist and Author wherein she continues in the work of spreading what God has entitled “The Gospel of Transformation.” Humbly, she works the ministry with a passion to see others healed and living in their purpose.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in San Francisco, California, and I wouldn't trade that fir anything. I believe being in such an eclectic and diverse environment has allowed me to experience life from a variety of different spiritual and natural perspectives. San Francisco is a blended culture all its own and living there alone tells some phenomenal stories. I didn't have the life I desired given so much sexual abuse and bullying growing up, but there is even a story in that. My writing is influenced by a variety of experiences that has shaped the woman I have become today. I am blessed and grateful.
When did you first start writing?
I can't remember not writing. I learned to read at 3 years old. Once I could sound out letters, words just made sense to me. I read everything from street signs to billboards to Anna Karenina in early elementary school. I was always lost in a story even when a book wasn't in my hand. Being so abused, I found myself always escaping to another world way off in my imaginary distance. That soon translated to poems, essays, plays, and autobiographies. Even my diaries were written for the reader. I lived narration for as long as I can remember, and writing my heart out was profoundly easy. I am not surprised that I continue to do so even now. Writing; story telling, are blessed and inspired gifts. To have writing as a part of my vocation is an amazing gift from the Creator that I will never cease to enjoy or be grateful for. In writing, I get to become undone and exposed so that someone else can experience something magical and enlightening, and I don't take it for granted.
