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, with one son-in-love. 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 Schertz, located at the crossroads of Texas, just northeast of San Antonio.

Building Oak Haven – Time flies

I thought I’d have more time, now that we’re at the camper and not running back and forth to the property. But somehow, that doesn’t seem to be the case. What a blessing to have sold our house and not … Continue reading

Building Oak Haven – Rocked it

  JDR Construction finished up the exterior masonry, both our stucco and our rock. We love how it all came together. As the masons hung the rock we could tell Chunks of flint filled the layer from where our rock was cut. … Continue reading
