If I Had A Hammer


Charleston, SC, Feb. 14, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — While building a community, one will face obstacles begotten from coveting, selfish agendas, a lust for power, control and more.

“The Hammer can build, but the Hammer can also take down. Christ was a carpenter who built lives, relationships and communities but also took down spiritual wickedness in high places,” alludes Johnson.

Take a candid look at a dynamic faith-walking Woman of God who eagerly shares her testimony on how God used her in building lives & her family despite the many challenges she faced through being blackballed, harassed, bullied & targeted.  In this unique, no-holds-barred narrative, Connie shares her trials, agonies, victories, and defeats while breaking generational curses, revamping history and placing the seed of history-making in each reader’s heart.

“[I want to get across to readers] a different way [of thinking] to take back our community and how to crack the system which has us under control.”

Fans of Freedom Writers, Get Out, and When They See Us will resonate with the book’s overarching themes of gentrification, politics, legislation, corrupt systems, legislation, spirituality and religion.
