What others are saying about Libby Johnson

What People Are Saying . . .


Libby recently led a spiritual retreat for our office and it was absolutely wonderful! She was very intentional during the planning process about learning what we wanted from the retreat and provided great feedback and suggestions as to what activities would fit the personalities and preferences of the group. The retreat activities provided a wide range of opportunities for spiritual engagement that spoke to everyone on many different levels. It was a beautiful time of individual spiritual growth that was done in rich fellowship as a group. Libby embodies a beautiful spiritual presence that creates a safe, comfortable, and directive space for individuals to take part in a spiritual retreat. The retreat provided time together as a team that was both meaningful, memorable, and much needed.

Working with Libby was an extremely enjoyable experience that I looked forward to each session.  Before coaching I couldn’t seem to sort out and manage the many demands on my time, all of which seemed important.  After coaching, I was able to prioritize, focus, and make decisions about what to let go of and what to dive into.  Libby listened to me, giving me space to talk through my concerns and obstacles, and asked pointed questions that challenged me to think deeper than surface level.  I felt confident in moving forward with a plan of action that I came up with through her coaching.  I highly recommend Libby as a coach who will be a partner with you in moving forward in life!

Before coaching with Libby, I found myself stuck in a job where I was no longer challenged.  I loved the company, my colleagues, and my industry, but I was professionally stagnant but fearful of change.  Libby coached me through my fears, through the interviewing process of a new opportunity and through the transition before, during, and after the job change. Yes, a job change!  Libby coached me to success! I was able to face my fear of change and successfully worked through all the anxiety and stresses that come with a new opportunity.  Thank you, Libby, for helping me to rediscover my potential and natural God-given talents.

I went on the “Be Still” retreat with Libby Johnson.  The activities took me outside my comfort zone, at times, but I experienced true communion with God and deepened relationships with other women.  Libby provided a wonderful balance of structure and space to allow God’s spirit to work among us in powerful ways.  The weekend was a true blessing!

When I attended the “Be Still” conference I didn’t know what to expect. The different breakout sessions we did were all moving and helpful for me. I loved praying in colors and being intentional during that time about what and who I was praying for. The Labyrinth walk was very moving for me; I’d never done anything like that.

I still remember sitting in the sanctuary and praying the scripture, which was such a peaceful time for me. Also, doing the physical prayers was a new experience for me and very touching. To this day, when I sit down to color I remember the praying in color experience and I’m reminded to pray for different people.

Before working with Libby, I was feeling a bit off track with staying focused on my business goals, and felt the need for support and guidance. Libby is professional, warm and a pleasure to work with. In each of our coaching sessions, she knew the right questions to ask to lead me to the clarity of my own answers, and offered insights and personal examples to support the process of getting clear on those answers. As we wrapped up our final coaching session, I felt more focused and back on track than I had been, and appreciative of the guidance I received. Thank you, Libby!

I loved the retreat! There was just enough time to process, reflect, and spend time with ladies. I loved the affirmation and scripture cards. I keep mine in my bathroom and start my day with them reminding me what God says, not the world or myself.

I have had a love of photography most of my life.  A couple of years ago I realized that photography could be a viable business for myself.  I was unsure how to approach this journey, but through coaching with Libby, I recognized that I wanted to take some college courses to further my knowledge of photography.  There were many times that I felt overwhelmed with life and coaching kept me focused and able to prioritize all the things that needed to be done – not only things related to photography. I am pleased to say that through coaching I found the confidence needed to secure a job as a portrait photographer with Lifetouch while pursuing other types of freelance work as time allows.  Today I feel very fulfilled because of my coaching experience with Libby.

Coaching with Libby gave me the courage I needed to move in a direction that was difficult but necessary.

Libby gave a beautiful message of how to apply God’s word to our own lives at the “Be Still” conference.  As a member of the WINGS ministry at Winter Park Baptist Church, Libby showed true leadership by walking the attendees through the steps needed to “prune” the busyness from their lives and find a true stillness with God. Her message was one of challenge and of inspiration.  I highly recommend Libby as a speaker for any organization.  You will truly be encouraged and blessed by Libby as she shares her heart with your group.

Being still with beautiful women of God in an idyllic mountain setting was the perfect combination of time alone to contemplate and time together to share and grow in scripture based lessons. I learned new ways to worship and pray and grew closer in my walk with Christ. This was an experience that I will never forget.

I was invited to attend the “Be Still” retreat by my mother, but I will admit I was a little nervous because I only knew two people, my mom and Libby! But what a blessing I received!  I made new friends and learned so many tools that I still use, and have shared with many people. Libby is an excellent leader and teacher. She was able to keep us on task and engaged, yet still providing time for private reflection. The activities we did really helped me open myself up to a deeper understanding of my daily priorities and showed me a different way to pray which helped me so much. I felt so much love from this group and it was an experience I won’t ever forget! Thank you, Libby!!

I have attended both the “Be Still” retreat in the mountains and the conference that was held at our church. The time of worshiping and sharing at the first retreat was one of the most meaningful times of my life.  Learning different methods of prayer helped me to connect with my Savior on a deeper level. Libby tried to help me figure out why I was resisting something so awesome.  A year or so later, Libby hosted a similar retreat at our church. I talked with Libby again about my struggle and she encouraged me to walk the Labyrinth.  It was a hard walk there, but I took one step into the Labyrinth and the tears started flowing.  I just walked and prayed and cried and prayed and cried.  These two events moved me in a such a way that not long afterwards, Libby baptized me.

Because of the great coaching from Libby I have been able to increase my massage therapy clientele. I have to say, Libby has guided me through thoughts, ideas and plans to make things happen! I’ve almost tripled my client list! And it’s still growing! I’m happy, my clients are happy and even my bank account is happier. I am more motivated, energized and have more self-worth due to her coaching and guidance. Thank you, Libby, for everything!
