On the morning of August 16, 2005, expectations for Allison Johnson and the future of her family met with the harshest of realities. Her husband had disappeared and she didn’t know if he was coming back. Colored by the destructive forces of bipolar mood disorder, “Waking Up in the Middle of Nowhere” is the story of Allison and Grant Johnson and their search for love in spite of seemingly impossible odds. Their against- all-odds attitude and the heartfelt sharing of the battlefield that became their life will touch your heart, magnify your faith, and intensify your belief in God and His miraculous works of healing and restoration. How did they survive, and perhaps even thrive, in spite of the invisible ogre that threatened them at every turn? Allison Johnson's book, Waking Up in the Middle of Nowhere: Finding my way in a Bipolar Marriage,is a memoir she wrote with her husband. Together they have launched an interactive blog: Wakingupinthemiddleofnowhere.blogspot.com where their readers receive ongoing support and encouragement.Several of her articles including, “Wow, I’m a Coach…Now What do I do?” and “Transition Coaching” are featured in Christian Coaching Magazine and she continues to be a contributing writer. Her short story, “Grace on a Thursday” was published in the devotional Moments of Grace. Portions of her blogs have also been featured on CBN.com and bipolarhappens.com/bhblog. Allison’s vision is to reach the hearts of women from every avenue of life, encouraging them to embrace the reality of who God intended them to be. Her writing, speaking and coaching ministry ResurrectedGirl.com provides women from every avenue of life the opportunity to fulfill their own potential for greatness.
