Publisher's Description

Stepping in the Ring is the 2002 Women of Faith drama sketch by Nicole Johnson, possibly her most powerful piece of writing to date. "Women have always had a unique fellowship of suffering," Nicole says. Where is the woman old or young who will not shed a tear and silently scream in her heart as she walks in these pages through the diagnosis of breast cancer and the devastation that ensues?

While she focuses on the specific soul-chilling crisis, Nicole offers her readers broader insights for dealing with major losses of all kinds. She extends genuine hope and much-needed rays of light to those who are mired in hopelessness and despair. A "must" read for breast cancer patients and their loved ones.

This second book in the Faith/Hope/Love Trilogy by Nicole follows the format of Dropping Your Rockwith the poignant and artistic black and white photos.

Press Release

Nicole Johnson: A Fresh Voice

Personable Writer/Performer Connects with Sold-Out Audiences Nationwide; Brings Hope, Insight and Humor to Complex Issues.

LOS ANGELES – Nicole Johnson has taken the lessons and experiences of women across America and around the world, connected them with her own, and transformed them into not only an extraordinary life-changing philosophy, but also extraordinarily touching performances. Bringing her sold-out audiences a perspective grounded in 20 years of writing, performing and listening, Nicole covers topics ranging from motherhood to multitasking, from cancer to love – and speaks in a voice that is fresh and unique.

Through her one-woman performances, her books and her DVDs, Nicole Johnson illuminates how life’s greatest value can sometimes be found hidden in its broken pieces. In fact, Nicole’s company, Fresh Brewed Life®, makes its mission to offer women everywhere “Hope for the Daily Grind.” Her message and her style are engaging and absolutely unique as she uses her many creative talents to fully express understanding of the trials that most women face. These sentiments reach across ethnic, age and socio-economic boundaries to touch and connect with women everywhere.

A Warm Multi-Media Talent
Since 2000, Nicole Johnson has been a part of a national women’s conference and has performed her invigorating one-woman shows to sold-out audiences across the United States, having reached more than three million people. Her on-stage portrayals of women — overextended by life but resilient with determination to overcome any obstacle — are infused with empathy, humor, insight and hope. She brings the audience right into her characters’ hearts and minds as she addresses issues ranging from the “invisibility” of motherhood to finding unconditional love.

Nicole’s performances are filled with warmth, comedy and poignancy, whether it’s her coffee shop waitress dishing out southern-fried wisdom about the treasure of close girlfriends, or a woman who suddenly finds herself in a boxing ring fighting against cancer — the “heavyweight champion of the world.”

Stepping into the Ring, is one of seven DVDs produced by Nicole that have sold more than 125,000 copies. Stepping into the Ring contains numerous individual performances, including the title track, which continues to be one of Nicole’s most popular pieces. This live-audience DVD presentation takes viewers on one woman’s battle against breast cancer and is uncanny in expressing the pain and ultimate redemption of this ordeal. Nicole’s other DVD performances illustrate the multi-faceted challenges facing today’s women as they cope with issues of control and value.

Fueled by a passion to create and communicate, Nicole is also a successful author, with seven books that have sold more than 300,000 copies. Her best-selling debut, Fresh Brewed Life (Thomas Nelson Publishers, 1999), conveys the overall understanding that many avenues exist for finding relief from life’s daily grind. Challenging but practical, this wake-up-and-smell-the-coffee guide was the genesis of Nicole’s message to live life to its fullest.

Her fifth book, The Invisible Woman (W Publishing, 2005), continues to provide encouragement to those hard-working women who feel unseen and underappreciated in their roles as mothers. Based on the immensely popular sketch that Nicole performs on stage, this book affirms women in their daily responsibilities for their families.

Of Nicole’s seven releases, four have already been translated into Spanish. She is currently at work on her eighth book. The strength of Nicole’s connection to her audience through her tender human approach, touches hearts and inspires women not only to read her books but to form discussion groups around them.

When not on tour, Nicole makes her home in Santa Monica, California, with her husband and their son Elliot. For more information, visit

    I gave this to a friend going through breast cancer, and she said it was spot on. She seemed to really appreciate the book.
