About

Johni is a 2017 graduate from Saint Vincent College with a degree in Biology. She grew up in Belle Vernon where she was an active member in her youth ministry. She was a member of the swim team in both high school and college. Johni learned of The Culture Project through the Theology of the Body sessions at her college hosted by a former missionary, Brother Cassian. Over the course of the year she fell in love with the many messages, but especially the messages of chastity and self-worth. Johni felt the desire to share these messages with others and soon answered God's beckoning to serve others as a CP missionary. "Without these messages of truth, our brothers and sisters in Christ are left in the darkness. I want to aid God in bringing them to the light. I truly believe that this mission will save God's superheroes and together we will change the world."

It’s Not Me, It’s You
By Johni B.  •  December 17th, 2019

If you’re a human with the capacity to love, then you have experienced betrayal. You have felt the words that people have spoken to you and believed them with all that you have. You have trusted those whom you once could rely. However, in one brief moment out of nowhere, they pulled the rug out…

Can We Talk?

Have you ever really contemplated the reality that loving is a choice? It’s more than just a feeling, it’s more than wanting to be around someone because of attraction or similar interests. Loving is choosing the other, even when it’s difficult, even when it hurts. Love isn’t easy and often it can really hurt. It’s…

Guard Your Heart or End Up With a Broken One
By Johni B.  •  April 2nd, 2019
