At the age of fifteen, Pamela Johnson asked Jesus into her heart. It took place at Fellowship Chapel, which was a Brethren in Christ church. She continued attending Fellowship Chapel, and that’s where the foundations of faith were instilled in her.
Johnson then attended college in Springfield, Massachusetts, and during that time she frequented an Assembly of God church. There she continued to grow in her faith. When she returned from college, she began attending Crossway Church, which was also an Assembly of God church.
Johnson attended two other churches after she moved away from NYC. Both churches, Redeeming Love Christian Center (RLCC) and Christ Sent Ministries (CSM), were instrumental in developing her desire to truly study the Word of God. At CSM, she led praise and worship times, and she began the sign language ministry, which ministered songs in sign language. Presently, she attends Christ Centered Ministries (CCM), which is located in Congers, New York. She’s the leader of the Hands in Praise Ministry, which is a sign language ministry. She also works in the audio ministry as well as the offering ministry, exalting the congregation to give unto the Lord.
Johnson developed the idea of this book while attending CSM. She started studying the book of Proverbs and felt it would be good for those who are new to the faith to begin learning about wisdom. She knew that using the King James Version would be difficult for new believers to truly understand. Therefore, she decided to do the study using the Contemporary English Version, which uses everyday language. The book was completed during her time at CCM.
Hopefully, those who read this book will begin to understand how to walk wisely on this earth and also learn that they don’t have to be super spiritual to be wise. They can and should be practical.
