To whom much is given, much is required.

Do you love Him enough to trust Him when He requires that you surrender everything? To whom much is given much is required. Because of the abundance of grace shown towards me, God placed within my heart to share a struggle that was swept under the rug. I never wanted to write A Journey To Hell and Back. The book was delayed for more than eight years. It was only after my back was against the wall that I was obedient to God. For two weeks almost non-stop, I cried as I typed the story that would expose Charlotte Russell. My grief was caused by the fact that I am no longer Charlotte Russell but Charlotte Johnson. For the first time in years, I felt the pain of being a Black Sheep. This poem Black Sheep, Black Sheep was my consolation straight from the throne of God. A Journey To Hell and Back was written for those who need to know that there is life after death; there is life after failure; there is life after sickness; there is life after divorce; and there is life after prison. Ultimately, victory came from the struggle. The events were shared so that those who need spiritual, emotional, and physical healing may be encouraged to seek life after hell. He has required that I offer my life as a source of encouragement to every mother who has a wayward child, every woman who has been abused, every teenager who is confused, every person who has given up hope, every person trapped in a comfort zone, and every person who has lost faith. Rather than curse the darkness, I have chosen to light candles, and thus begin to rise from the ashes of a life that literally burned itself out. This act of obedience cost me everything, yet it cost me nothing. What do we have that He didn’t first give to us?

From the heart of Charlotte
