Johnnie Goolsby misses “the serenity and peacefulness of just taking a walk up and down the clay dirt of Georgia.”

As she plans on a respite from the fast-paced life of Los Angeles, she looks forward to being home in Jones County where she was born, raised, and went to school.

While here, the Christian author, motivational speaker, and singer will appear at Macon’s Barnes & Noble June 20 to sign copies of her most popular book, Stone the Builders Rejected. Celebrating the 10th anniversary of its publication, Goolsby says the book is for “teens and discusses several issues that teens face in their daily lives, including bullying, peer pressure, low self-esteem, stereotyping, and celibacy.”

She understands how the book has great staying power, blessing people “over and over again.” And one of her reasons for returning home is to thank her many supporters, believing her upbringing in Jones County is part of the reason the book has become such a wonderful gift to her.

She reflects on “all of the English teachers from the Jones County School System and their instruction that helped to guide me along this path.”

While on her tour she also is adding the promotion of the brand new devotional, Letters from the Field, to be released in the fall. The book covers personal issues such as “faith, perseverance, prayer, praise, and worship.” Goolsby knows the book will bring encouragement for people who face tough situations in everyday life.
