Shepherd for the Shattered
My name is Joi Crawford-Johnson. I am a born-again Christian—Baptized with the Holy Ghost since my teenage years. I am graced to be in my years of jubilee. I am married to my husband since 2008. I have four beautiful children. I am a Board-Certified Christian Counselor through Coventry House School of Ministry (TX). My place of worship is at Upper Room COGIC, Raleigh, NC where Bishop Patrick L. Wooden, Sr. is the Pastor & Lady Pamela Wooden is his wife and First Lady.

In December of 2015, I obtained my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Applied Behavioral Science and Graduated Cum Laude. Since May of 2015, I have been a volunteer Client Advocate at a pregnancy and sexual health resource center called Gateway Women's Care where I counsel young women from ages 18 to 25 (and even up to about 35). In April 2018, I obtained my Christian Counseling Certificate. In March 2017, I became a volunteer Pediatric Cuddler. This service involves me giving love to sick babies through hugging, praying, singing, reading and playing with them. In July 2017, I completed my Master of Arts in Psychology Degree at Ashford University with a 3.75 GPA. Because of this I was invited to become a member of two Honor Societies: The Golden Key International Honor Society and the Tua Upsilon Honor Society with the most prestigious being The Golden Key International Honor Society. As of October 2017, I am currently enrolled with Bethany Divinity College and School of Ministry (Alabama) to pursue my Doctorate Degree in Christian Counseling. I am also currently a student in the Master of Social Work program at Our Lady of the Lake University (Texas). My experience along with practical living and Biblical principles, concepts and theories I have learned assists me in becoming a more successful professional Christian counselor and psychologist. Counseling appeals to me because I am a warm-hearted person who enjoys encouraging people; and whose heart goes out to hurting people and victims of violence especially.
