Do you keep holding onto hope and believing he'll change? 

I always felt so inadequate.  I ended up settling in relationships.  I wanted a man who would share my faith and be a strong spiritual leader, a man who would adore and cherish me.  When he proposed I thought he was the one, but it didn't take long for the misery to begin.  

I believed everything my ex-husband said. Even though there was no evidence of change, I clung to hope. And yet, time and time again, I was disappointed. Frustrated. Enraged. Embittered. 

I tried everything to make him change. I prayed harder. Joined Bible studies to help my marriage. I tried counseling and read books.

But the lying and deceit didn't stop. The emotional, spiritual and financial abuse continued. His drug addiction and porn addiction grew out of control.

It wasn't until years later that I found the word to define what I'd experienced. Narcissistic abuse.  

Eyes wide open came a little late. So many red flags I'd ignored. So many things I wish I'd known earlier. 

The truth is, that I'd always picked the wrong men. I settled and compromised my values. Bottom line: I felt inadequate. Unworthy of what I really wanted. So I settled for someone I thought I could fix. 

But those were the very qualities that made me vulnerable to controlling, manipulative, emotionally abusive and narcissistic men. 

Add to that my misinterpretation of scripture that that the only reason for divorce was marital infidelity. Instead I was taught to love more. Pray harder. Suffer long. Endure. Suck it up. 

My children were growing up with the same mindsets I'd embraced. I knew I needed answers, but I was also concerned about their future as well. I had to find freedom. 

It all started when I finally had enough. Filed a Victim’s Protective Order. Now that my husband was out of the house, I thought everything would be better. But that’s when I discovered that I didn’t know how to be alone. I’d never been alone before.

Yep, it was scary. But rock bottom is exactly where I really found Jesus.

Presenting BEST U

I finally found my way out of the mess and now as a Certified Advanced Christian Life Coach I've been helping women like you for the past 15 years find the same freedom I've found.

My passion is to help you break the toxic love rut and be the BEST U ever! Whether he changes or not, whether you are single, married, divorced or widowed, you deserve to be free!  

Change your mindset...

Change your life!

In BEST U you'll learn that you are fully LOVED. You'll learn how to:

  • Leverage clear-cut boundaries
  • Overcome rejection
  • Visualize God’s promises
  • Embrace freedom
  • Drive out self-doubt

  • When you change your mindset in these 5 key areas, you'll gain the freedom and confidence you've always wanted.

You'll walk away with newfound confidence and the remarkable awareness that YOU ARE ENOUGH! And that, my friend, gives you an astonishing advantage for your happily-ever-after. 

Your Happily-Ever-After Begins Here! 

You can find the peace, confidence and contentment you've always wanted even if he never repents, never changes or even if he walks away. 

Here’s What You’ll Get When You Sign Up

You'll get immediate access to a private membership area where you can dig into the curriculum and a library of over 90 videos. You can study at your own pace as well as connect with the other ladies in the membership to discuss what you are learning, ask questions and get feedback. All on the private platform. New content will be posted each month along with two group coaching calls each month on Zoom.

coaching calls

Twice a month, you can join live group coaching calls on Zoom where I'll discuss personal growth topics related to relationships. Boundaries. Forgiveness. Reconciliation. Trusting your gut. Should you stay or go? And more. 

You'll have the chance to ask questions and get feedback. Or if you prefer, you can simply listen to the teaching, instruction, feedback and dialogue.


I'm big on action points and challenges. You've got to do more than take notes. I'll push you to put into action what you are learning!

Each module contains video or audio content and relevant assignments to help you comprehend God's love and apply His truth to the issues you're facing right now.


It's amazing how much we need each other! God created us for fellowship. And yet, when difficulties come, so many women hide their pain or deny it all together. Instead they smile and pretend everything is okay. That stops here! 

You'll thrive in community. There truly is strength in numbers. When you no longer isolate your issues, the shame and discouragement fades away as you realize that you are not alone. Recovery and freedom are possible! 

If you've ever struggled with:

  1. Feeling like you're not enough
  2. Setting and keeping boundaries
  3. Tolerating unacceptable behavior
  4. Ignoring red flags
  5. Avoiding confrontation
  6. Trusting too much
  7. Compromising your values for the sake of synthetic peace
  8. Wondering how your marriage got so bad or why you keep picking the wrong men

  • Biblical ways to recognize and avoid destructive relationships
  • Skills to confront control and manipulation
  • How to identify narcissistic abuse and how to handle it
  • Courage to speak up for yourself
  • Strategies to build your self-worth
  • Healthy ways to confront conflict without losing your cool

  • How twisted truths about submission and divorce have kept women stuck

About Christy Johnson

Christy Johnson is a Board Certified Advanced Christian Life Coach, relationship expert, international speaker and author. Since 2007 she’s coached hundreds of women in emotionally destructive and narcissistic relationships, helping them reclaim their confidence by teaching them how to spot manipulation, trust their gut, set healthy boundaries and walk in forgiveness.

A microphone is like a stick of dynamite in Christy’s hand. A domestic abuse survivor turned champion of forgiveness, Christy Johnson tells it like it is.

In 1998, Christy’s life took a dramatic turn after the death of her two-year old son, Jake, who died in a tragic car accident while her ex-husband was driving under the influence of several narcotics. In the midst of her darkness, however, Christy found hope. She often relates, “Every shard of pain prepared me for my purpose. I knew my destiny the day Jake died.”

Fueled by a passion to see other women set free, Christy set aside her career in banking to begin writing and speaking. Audiences respond instantly to her warm personality, but when they hear her story they witness the undeniable power of God in the midst of tragedy. Christy’s journey through abuse and forgiveness gives her a unique boldness, authenticity and authority to challenge other women to race after their own freedom and find healing for their souls.

Christy is the author of Love Junkies: 7 Steps for Breaking the Toxic Relationship Cycle and Free Looks Good on You: Healing the Soul Wounds of Toxic Love. Her video teaching series for Love Junkies is used in women’s discipleship groups worldwide. Christy has several stories published in Guideposts and Chicken Soup for the Soul. Her popular Bible plans on YouVersion have a combined total of over 270,000 downloads.

When she’s not coaching women, creating a workbook on Canva or reading the thesaurus, you can find Christy enjoying her other passions: shopping, decorating or rearranging her pillow collection. She and her forever-husband John of 25 years have three adult children who’ve all flown the coop. They live in Edmond, Oklahoma with several ceramic dogs. (Since Christy has a white linen couch.)

I have new strength! 

Thank you Christy for taking God’s lead and the direction of the Holy Spirit to bless my life.  I know God led me to you and every week I felt his presence. Since I have participated in both of your groups I have grown in my faith and God has given me the strength to rise and put on my crown.

Christy has lots of wisdom to share

Christy has great tools that helped me set some boundaries and make some decisions that I was sitting vacillating back and forth on. She had a lot of wisdom to share and was a gentle voice when I needed it. She is very good at what she does. God has definitely shown her where her gift is!

A freedom blueprint

I’ve learned how to stop people pleasing and speak up for myself, something that was always so scary. I also gained effective tools for resolving conflict.  Christy gave me a blueprint to grow stronger without the guilt and self-doubt that used to haunt me.

Your BEST U Success Path

Your freedom journey will empower you with the courageous mindset you need to discover:


Freedom in your Awareness

You’ll learn how to quit struggling with rejection and unworthiness and wondering why you continue to tolerate inappropriate behavior in your relationship. You’ll be able to quit saying yes too much and worrying about what he thinks of you. You'll begin to understand how to use caution and discernment, trust your gut, spot yellow flags and quit trusting too soon or without evidence of repentance.

You’ll quit rescuing, settling or making excuses for him. You’ll learn to draw your confidence and worth from what God says about you and detach from his demands, insults and accusations.


Freedom in your Discernment

You’ll learn how to crush self-doubt, feelings of inadequacy and that all-consuming people-pleasing habit by visualizing God’s promises for your life. By reframing images of self-defeat and replacing them with God-focused vision you’ll be empowered with a sense of purpose and joyful expectancy for your future.


Freedom in your Boundaries

You'll learn key secrets to communicating effective boundaries. How to speak up for yourself, confront issues when necessary and stop letting him walk all over you. You’ll be given tactics to communicate and enforce clear-cut boundaries so that your self-respect and sanity return and your partner or spouse takes you seriously.


Freedom in your Identity

You’ll learn how to overcome the rejection caused by insults, labels and lies that he and others have spoken over you. With strategies to defeat shame, regret and the torment of feeling like you’re not enough, even if your circumstances don’t change, you’ll have the tools to develop a new identity filled with security, joy and genuine contentment.


Freedom in your Future

You’ll learn how to drive out self-doubt and fear by discerning the voice of God for your life and denouncing the enemy’s lies. By using truth targets, you’ll develop new skills that solidify your peace and confidence and help you gain direction for your life.

You’ll learn how to take charge of your future by releasing the pain of your past. As you learn how to let go of the sting of regret, disappointment and bitterness you’ll be able to walk in the power of forgiveness and freedom.  

A change in mindset brings freedom! 

Without the revelation that personal growth brings, women gravitate back to the old habits that make them vulnerable to destructive relationships. Did you know that 76% of people who are released from prison return to prison within 5 years? The same is true in mental prisons. But once you identify the false beliefs you've embraced and deliberately replace them with truth, you can embody the promise in Proverbs 31:25.


You'll also get these incredible Bonuses!

Resource Library: A collection of over 20 of my top relationship resources reviewed and handpicked just for you.  

Prayer Calls: On the first Friday morning of the month I'll be available to pray for your requests. Come in your pj's if you want and grab your coffee or your favorite drink for this intimate gathering.

Private Q&A Calls: Need wisdom on a difficult situation? Once a month I'll invite you to a private nonrecorded session where you can get wisdom and direction on those burning questions that just can't wait.


What if I can't attend the bi-monthly group coaching calls?

Not a problem. All calls will be recorded and uploaded to the private membership dashboard.  

What about privacy?

The membership dashboard is for members only and each user will have their own login. 

What if I don't have a printer to print out the worksheets?

The worksheets will be available both as pdfs as well as pdf fillable so you can complete them online without the need to print them out. 

Who is this membership for?

If you are married, separated, divorced, single or widowed and want to let go of the past and find personal freedom with yourself and in romantic relationships, Best U is for you!

My Hope for You is Huge!

For over 15 years, I've been helping Christian women in toxic relationships find the freedom they need to prosper in life, love and romance.

As a Board Certified Advanced Christian Life Coach, I not only have the tools and training to help you, I also have tons of street cred. I have been-there-done-that and am living proof that you can find the freedom you deserve to be your Best U. 

Let me show you how!

God longs to heal you and make you whole, so don’t fall short of receiving everything he has for you. That’s what happened to 9 of the 10 lepers. Jesus healed them all physically, but only one was made whole. Not just physically whole, but his soul became whole. When he pressed into Jesus, shame fell off. Regrets vanished. Insecurities melted away. He became his BEST U.

And that’s God’s desire for you, too!

If you’re ready to experience the joy, confidence and emotional freedom in relationships you’ve always wanted, I’d love to help you shed the shackles of your past and become your BEST U ever!

BEST U will give you valuable Content & Community
