About this site and a little about me

This blog is called I.N.F.O. for Families.

It has been designed for regular people from Imperfect and Normal Families Only (get it?) who are striving to discover God's best in a culture that sometimes works against us. While none of our families are perfect, we serve a God who is. And He is willing and able to lead us if we will simply look to Him and His Word for direction. I want this to be a place that helps you do that.

My goal is to help you to be purposeful in your relationship with God, your spouse, and your kids. 


As you poke around on this blog, I hope you will find some tools, resources, and insights to help with that. You may not agree with everything you see here, but I hope all of it makes you think...and pushes you deeper into Christ and His Word.

I try to post about three times a week. Sometimes it's more than that. Sometimes less. I usually promote posts on Facebook and Twitter, so I invite you to follow me there. You can also subscribe to INFO so that you won't miss anything. If you are new here, I have pulled together a list of my Top Ten Most Popular Posts.

 The Johnson Family, Marietta, Georgia

The Johnson Family, Marietta, Georgia

Oh, and by the way, my name is Barrett Johnson and I currently serve as the Minister to Families at Johnson Ferry Baptist Church in Marietta, Georgia.

I am married to Jenifer (who is a lot smarter than I am) and we have five kids: from a newlywed 21 year-old to an active 6 year-old.

With 23 years of marriage under our belts, three teenagers in our home, and our first grandchild born in early 2013, we are an imperfect and ordinary family who have experienced it all.

Thankfully, we haven't killed each other… yet.
