My name is Johnna Fredrickson. Thank you for visiting my blog. I began A Pen and a Prayer to write about matters of the heart, mind, and spirit. The posts are meant to be the beginning of a conversation more than a monologue. I welcome the thoughts of those who visit – a gift to me and others!
I received a PhD in Theology from Princeton Theological Seminary. My focus area is Practical Theology, and my major field Christian Education. I have taught in seminaries and churches, led retreats, and worked for denominational bodies. In 2010, my book How the Other Half Lives: the challenges facing clergy spouses and couples was released. I continue to write and participate in church life.
I live in New England with my husband, David, and our two sons.
