About this author

Bryana writes because all of the bushes are afire after all. Because somehow we must figure out a way to live barefoot, awestruck, transfixed, before the light of Christ that plays in ten thousand places.

Bryana's many passions include literature, acrylic paints, acoustic guitar, educational theory, watercolor journaling, political science, thunderstorms, history, calligraphy, the wonder of green things, and children. She lives the wide life on a farm among animals and blackberry plants and in pastures and creekbeds and trees writes about the mystery and the triumph of the narrow way.

Her poems have won several prizes in contests sponsored by the HSLDA and contests sponsored by The Utmost Christian Writers Foundation. She was awarded an hono

???????????We were in the library when it happened. We had come over the crisp and dusky concrete walks in our overcoats and our hats and converged there under the lights. We were buried in our books, in calculus problems and those long research papers that all professors decide to assign at exactly the same time, so that class schedules are as inefficient as they can be.


The school library is a happy, wid...

“The ocean-blue bowl won’t
refuse to bruise, won’t hold it back
from the gaping earth-wounds.

There will still come
water, chill wind and happy
goosebumps,

and in the utmost corners of oaks,
leaves laughing.”
Bryana Johnson, Having Decided To Stay

“I scratch down happiness, I
want my ink to do happy dances,
to careen across the pages staggering
like a drunken fellow, giddy
on moonshine or sunset.”
Bryana Johnson, Having Decided To Stay

“I too was pinched off from a piece of clay,
I too modeled by omnipotence and flanked
by things too wonderful for me”
Bryana Johnson, Having Decided To Stay

“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

“You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.”
Madeleine L'Engle

“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.”
Mark Twain

“Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.”
Dr. Seuss

“So many books, so little time.”
Frank Zappa
