Feeling exhausted, confused, and stressed out? This has been another tough year, and we may have survived intense emotions and spiritual pain. The Rev. Earl Johnson joins me to offer guidance on maintaining hope and relationships with people and things that matter, finding comfort during hard times, and entering the new year with hope.

As the national spiritual care manager for the American Red Cross, Rev. Earl E. Johnson, recruited, screened, trained, and deployed highly credentialed healthcare chaplains to mass fatality events for ten years. From plane crashes to school shootings, Johnson was part of a team that assessed and planned emotional and spiritual support for the victims and loved ones of these horrific unanticipated events.

Johnson has appeared on MSNBC and CNN to advocate for families of those lost in the Malaysian air incident. He lectured at Michigan State, Michigan, and Radford/Virginia Tech disaster preparedness conferences. In the past decade, he coordinated professional spiritual care support to fatal domestic aviation incidents, massive Gulf hurricanes including Katrina, Rita, and Gus, the Virginia Tech shootings, and Orlando.

Johnson is the author of Finding Comfort During Hard Times, one of the ten best health and wellness books of 2021, according to Booklist of the American Library Association.
