Shift your focus, Change your World

Dr. Dione Johnson-Williams is a licensed clinical psychologist, Christian minister, entrepreneur, author, community leader, and motivational speaker. She blends psychology, philosophy, and theology to present a unique perspective that helps people gain a new understanding of themselves and the world around them.

She earned her doctorate in philosophy with an emphasis in clinical psychology and a master’s degree in theology from Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, CA. Dr. Dione has a passion for re-entry services for juveniles and adults released from correctional facilities, and she is the founder of Truth & Heart Ministries.

Dr. Dione came to faith in Christ at a young age, but the fear-based, fire-and-brimstone sermons of her childhood left her seeking more. For many years she struggled to understand where God’s love fit into her faith. Over time she began to see that God’s love was evident in His constant pursuit of her, and she increasingly comes to see His love at work in her life on a daily basis.

H​er awareness that God has relentlessly loved her and He chased after her even in the midst of her rebellion is what drives her today. The same God who was relentless in chasing after her, wanting her to come near to Him, to be in relationship with Him, to feel His love and acceptance is the same God who wants does this with all of us – His children.

Integrating back into society after being in prison or juvenile detention is one of the hardest things a person can do. Finding jobs and a place to live is difficult, but the hardest thing is adjusting to living a more positive life…a life that corrects unhealthy thinking patterns, minimizes toxic relationships, and  avoids destructive behaviors.

T​hrough JARC, Dr. Dione helps people recently released from correctional facilities to reintegrate successfully into society.

Mission Statement

The Truth is faith in Jesus Christ, walking in Truth as Kingdom Disciples, and using Truth to better our lives (John 8:32)

So much of what contributes to so many people feeling stuck and frustrated, beyond their external circumstances, is feeling like they are powerless. Too many people feel like they’ve done all that they can do within their own capacity-to no avail- to improve their circumstances and are at their wits-end, mentally and emotionally. When this happens, the one thing that needs to almost always shift is a change in your thoughts. There needs to be a shift in your focus or perspective in how you are understanding what is happening to and around you. When a shift in how you think about your setbacks, delays, and disappointments happens, you position yourself to more positively impact and change your circumstances.
