Real Mentoring… In Faith

God Bless You friend.”

“While reading this book, whether you know it or not, you’ve entered the aura of this wonderful author, teacher, and mentor. And when you finish you’ll realize you've just been mentored by a master, who picks the right words, puts them in the right order, and in so doing nudges the world one reader at a time. A master storyteller, who with humble wit and Christian spirit reconnects us all with the pure humanity in communicating - and in reality, isn’t that what life is all about?”

Richard W. Brundage, President

"Real Mentoring - In Faith” captures the essence of spiritual love.  Not only does George Johnson captivate the reader with wonderful examples of dazzling leadership, but he educates and informs us through a precious and treasured gift; his own true life stories.

“The most value lessons we learn often come from stories. Young people today are not hearing or reading enough good, positive stories that can add value to their lives and futures.  Through  “Real Mentoring – In Faith”  Johnson is not only able to entertain the reader with his unique style of wit and charm, but shares personal stories of accounts and people that aided in shaping him into the dynamic and faith filled leader we know and love today.

"Real Mentoring - In Faith" is an excellent and easy read that I recommend to anyone who sees value in improving their own life through investing in the lives of others.

A great book from a man who does not just talk the talk, but he walks the walk!”

Captain Chris West

Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Retired


“Knowing George Johnson as I have for twenty years, I thought I knew what I would see in his book.  I saw everything that I expected to, but I saw more than I expected to see.

Having been a mentor for more than fifty years as an executive and leader in Boy Scouts of America, and having been a certified coach to nonprofit CEO’s for the past ten years, I thought I knew mentoring.


But what I read in George’s book, and what you must read also, is mentoring of a different sort…

My mentoring has been in a professional and business sense foremost, and the personal mentoring I have done has been a byproduct.  What George demonstrates is how tightly woven all aspects of mentoring can be, when faith is the loom upon which the weaving is done.

George has done his part; now do yours and read this book!”

Paul Moore,

Executive Director

Executive Service Corps of Central Oklahoma


“My prayers are that you make the right choices.” That quote from George Johnson in “Real Mentoring” weaves its magic into this page-turner of a life’s adventures. And through the stories told to you, know the author is smiling, observing, challenging, and mentoring. From using the Old Testament’s Proverbs 31… to a missed dinner with Zig Ziglar… to $100,000 worth of chills…, George makes us appreciate life – our lives, and he challenges us to share our lives with all by mentoring intentionally and with purpose. Because as George says so well,

‘A faith worth having is a faith worth sharing.’

“Knowing George, as I do, these pages unfold the words from the heart of a man steep in his endless faith of Jesus Christ, who is the Creator of all stories of life.

“Thank you, thank you George, for sharing your deep faith as you mentor each of us along life’s journey.”

“Princess Catherine” (My treasured nickname from George!)

Catherine Meloy,

President and Chief Executive Officer

Goodwill of Greater Washington, District of Columbia


“What a triumph! In a world of bad influence and endless deprecation, there's George Johnson -- Oklahoma's indefatigable font of faith-drawn wisdom, sage advice, hard-earned lessons, and infectious joy. It's hard not to be inspired by George's lucid prose and abiding faith; his incandescent enthusiasm permeates every page. Maybe it's because George is the best kind of "people person" -- someone who can connect with others in ways that allow an evincing of truth.

Finding the extraordinary in daily life is a gift requiring keen observation, careful reflection, and a healthy dose of equanimity. That George possesses this gift in spades is apparent to anyone who journeys with him through this book, “Real Mentoring In Faith.” Consumed in whole or in morsels, George's homespun stories will raise you to a nobler place. It's a journey worth taking – a book worth reading.”

Steve Blevins, MD

Associate Dean for Medical Education

University of Oklahoma Health Sciences


“Excellent read... George Johnson has a talent for leaving the reader with lingering feelings of hope, honesty and caring… He makes you reflect on those little life lessons learned, which are passed on from generation to generation. After all what is real mentoring but “life lessons.”
