Dream Me Awake is an inspiring and heartfelt story of transforming pain into joy of creating an authentic and fulfilling life of what it means to surrender in order to find true freedom and of rediscovering faith in people.
Johnson's journey through loss poverty and the healing of deep trauma ultimately led to her great awakening as she learned that only by allowing herself to be humble and fully experience every aspect of life could she truly be free.
