CRESTVIEW — On Tuesday, Healthy Woman, a North Okaloosa Medical Center resource, welcomes author Nicole Johnson for its dinner, "Fresh Brewed Life:  Hope for the Daily Grind.”



"Nicole Johnson is a bestselling author, performer and motivational speaker," Healthy Woman Coordinator Alicia Booker said in an email. "(She) communicates with humor, compassion and wisdom using her unique blend of drama and speaking skills."



Johnson — who has spread uplifting messages to millions of women through speaking engagements, books and DVDs — said Tuesday’s event aims to encourage and motivate women.



"The part I hope I can play ... will be reminding women that they are not alone in their struggles," she said in an email. "Through laughter and connection, I try to bring hope in the midst of ‘the daily grind.’"



One way to do that is by encouraging women to make life choices now instead of waiting.



"Every woman can start living a richer, fuller, more robust life today," Johnson said. "It’s about making intentional choices every day to be a participator, rather than a spectator, in our lives."



Copies of her book, "Fresh Brewed Life,” will be available for purchase.
