Not only is Naima an accomplished singer, she is a skilled songwriter with a deep understanding of scripture and a relationship with God that shines through every track."

From Lessons From The Back Seat,
"It was in these social settings I wound up in the back seat – a lot. You see, it never made sense to take my car when we were going somewhere when I could just as easily sit in the back seat of theirs. For three years, I sat in the back seat with several different married couples going to all manner of events, hanging out in general and going on ministry trips. Relationships develop rapidly when you spend all of your free time with the same folks. You get so close that often things you would never allow the world to see, you allow people who are ingrained in your world to witness. In other words, I sat on the back seat so often people forgot I was back there. It was watching these interactions from the back seat that I learned how I should and should not handle certain issues in marriage. I didn’t realize that I was learning these lessons but they were being stamped in my mind and written in the hopes of my heart."

Financially bankrupt, emotionally drained, doubting the calling of God, these are the words that describe the spiritual state that Dr. Naima Johnston found herself in after leaving her professional position as an educator to pursue a career in Christian music. After a year of reflection, prayer and surrender, Dr. Johnston is now rebuilding her ministry with great enthusiasm, faith and success. This book has been birthed from these experiences. Geared towards independent Christian artists and those contemplating a career in music ministry, this manual addresses issues that many artists fail to recognize as potential problems that can stunt the development of their ministries. Covering areas such as booking, marketing, and faith, Dr. Johnston draws from her extensive personal experience as a "failure" to present a practical guide to building a music ministry.
From the hilarious story of an old man who calls her fat, to the serious discovery of the true meaning of evil, Naima shares her struggles, triumphs and issues as she walks the road of recovery from her hurts, habits and hang-ups. A grateful member of the Christian 12 Step Recovery Community, Naima candidly writes about her personal recovery process as she daily surrenders to the healing power of Christ. As a recovering Food Addict, co-dependant who has dealt with anger, bitterness and depression, this book shares the hope of Christ and the power of His love to bring freedom from addiction and strength to handle the ups and downs of daily life.
These poems have been written as I traveled the country sharing my educational programs, Spiritual Songs, The History of the Negro Spiritual and Dancing with the Devil, The African American Holocaust. They are reflections of my encounters at places such as Carnton Plantation, the burial grounds of the largest group of Confederate soldiers on private property. The Freedom Center which sits on the banks of the Ohio River, an educational testament to the past and present history of slavery. They were delivered to me through the news. The modern day terrors which transcended race but exemplified hate and from seeing cotton growing in the field for the first time at the age of forty one. I have chosen to sing the songs of my ancestors so that all may know the truth – the truth of an evil that still rolls like thunder across our nation today. And I like to think of these poems as songs as well, songs bound to the page to carry on long after my voice has been silenced and entered into the ages.
