About Jill English Johnston

God writes His story on every heart, if we only pause to read it. My heart has lived in a fantasy world since early childhood and am delighted that God has finally brought me to the place where I can bring the fantasies to life through story. I am currently working on a fantasy trilogy (of course) but I also post thoughts, reflections and (hopefully) inspiration to my website: tabletsofhumanhearts.wordpress.com I am a follower of the Rabbi Jesus, married to my best friend and inspiration, and the mother of three incredible children, one daughter and two sons, a son-in-love, a daughter-in-love and two adorable granddaughters. When not writing, I passionately pursue prayer, reading (never enough time to read them all!), and the outdoors. My husband and I both served in the US Navy and have lived/travelled through many states and all over Asia. We both still enjoy travelling, but we really love our home in New Braunfels, located at the Texas Hill Country.

The next Be Still book is currently a work in progress. As conflict, chaos, change, and challenges continue into 2021, I’m thankful for the consistency of God. And I’m humbled by his inspiration and provision when I’m coming up empty. … Continue reading

The Sin of Certainty by Peter Enns

So many opinions, positions, beliefs, and doctrines. In my faith journey I’d been taught how to “defend” my beliefs, how to “prove” truth, how to “argue” critical doctrines, and how support it all with scripture. To be honest, I was … Continue reading
