Growing up in Little Rock, Arkansas, Debbie
Johnson has always had a passion for Christianity as it intersects with our
world. In 1995, she founded DenverWorks to equip the unemployed in her
community. She led the organization for ten years before she became involved in
global ministry, first as a Vice President at the Dalit Freedom Network, then
as the Executive Director of India Transformed.
She returned to DenverWorks as Interim Director 2015-mid 2016.
Subsequently, she has written three books, A Pocketful of Seeds, Lessons Learned from the Bottom of the Stairs: A Story of Faith and Resilience (with and about Randy Milliken), and The Journey: A Traveling Companion Through the New Testament.
In A Pocketful of Seeds, she composed and/or compiled 365 ways to impact one’s world—a seed to be sown daily. In Lessons Learned from the Bottom of the Stairs, she served as the “scribe” for Randy Milliken, who has cerebral palsy. In The Journey, she wrote with the angst and honesty of a fellow traveler on this journey called life. The nuggets she found within each passage of God’s word are poignant, refreshing, and invariable transformative.
Debbie and her husband live on a farm in Colorado with two dogs and a bunch of chickens.
