Renee Johnson is a native of Jacksonville Florida and is the mother of four beautiful children. As a woman of prayer, Renee received the assignment to reach out to teen girls in her community. It was in August of 2002, when God gave her the vision of Morning Dove Center For Teen Girls, Inc.
In March of 2003, the organization was filed in the State of Florida, and within nine months, it was certified as a nonprofit organization with its 501©3. Since the calling has been placed on her life, God has given her so many ideas to offer service to the young girls, such as Workshops, Teen Summits, Banquets, Clothes Giveaways, and Fashion Shows, which are ways of ministering and serving the girls to meet their needs.
Renee is passion about encouraging teen girls to realize their true value and worth within themselves, in Christ, through inspirational and educational teaching and music. Her ministry is positively impacting the lives of girls and young women citywide. She attended local schools, such as Ribault Middle School, Andrew Jackson High School, and graduated from Fernandina Beach High School, in the year of 1980.
Renee Johnson has had experience working with children over the past 10 years, with Emma Love Hardy Elem. School, Fernandina Bch. Fl., Head Start School System, as a teacher aide, and she also worked as a teacher with preschoolers at Elm Street Church of God Daycare. Her experience with teens started from her own personal experience while mentoring her 4 teen children, ministering to teen girls in her local church, by encouraging and motivating them, and teens in her local neighborhood.
Renee also volunteered with the State of Florida Guardian AD Litem Program, for abused and neglected children, where she had the opportunity to sit in court with families that are being challenged, and have their children taken away to foster care. Renee has had several opportunities to minister in other areas, such as Fernandina, Columbia South Carolina, A Foster Care Group Home in Orange Park Florida, several churches within the local area and schools in the local area as well.
In March 2012, Renee became an author and published her first book, entitled “The Blaze of Consumption A Rise From The Ashes”, which became a “Great Seller” as she pursued her dream as an Entrepreneur, God allowed her to birth out her first novel and from that 2 plays were also created from her book entitled “Somethin’s Gotta Give” by Hidden Wounds Productions, and Distorted Truth. Many other book titles were birthed and are being prepared for publication as well. Ms. Renee is now working on her 4th and 5th book, as she continues to minister to those with hidden pain from abuse or rejection that leads to low self-esteem.
In June of 2012, God elevated Renee to another level of ministering, where she started the ministry of Vessels of Living Water, which was organized and listed with the State of Florida, to minister to hurting women, nationwide. She has since been invited to speak at several workshops, youth events as well as services that reach out to young women throughout the State of Florida and other States as well.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, when I was a little girl about the age of 10, I wrote several poems, and stories to make friends remain friends, even if they get mad with each other, i would write a letter to each person to say "I'm sorry"
What is your writing process?
I have a technique where, if I am sitting at dinner, and a thought comes to me, I jot it down. I see things, and get a quick thought, and I began to write. Most of my stories began with my personal testimony, my own story, or something that I may have experienced in one given day, I can get a thought and write.
