"When you combine inspiration, adventure, and enlightenment you get Skip Johnson‘s latest book “The Innkeepers Journal"

—Amazon reviewer


Nick and Maggie Reynolds are a young couple who seem to have everything the world could offer.

Wealthy, talented, well-traveled Harvard professors, raised in elite Nantucket families—yet they are miserably unhappy, and closer to a bitter divorce every day.

In a final attempt to pull their marriage together, the pair embarks on a road trip to Florida during their fall break, to visit one of their former favorite vacation spots.

Then unexpectedly, they find themselves detouring and spending a night at a quaint, coastal Georgia bed and breakfast.

As it turns out, it’s not just any inn.

The kind, wise, yet mysterious host seems to somehow know exactly what they need to turn their marriage and their lives around—but it will involve deep personal changes to their privileged way of life, which the two may not be willing to make. . .
Changes based on The Four Truths from a secretive, powerful journal the innkeeper has fortuitously inherited from a world-famous painter and wise ancestor of his.

When the gentleman offers the New Englanders a glimpse of what the transformative teachings of The Four Truths can do, the desperate pair is forced to make a choice . . .

Should they travel on and risk missing out on a “miracle” from this mystical innkeeper—or stay and hope his sharing of these sacred tenets can bring them real happiness and a renewed love for each other?

Full of twists and turns in the spectacular Golden Isles of Georgia, The Innkeeper's Journal is an uplifting, touching journey to self-discovery that will have you feeling empowered, encouraged, and grateful for what you'll discover along the way. . .

The Cobbler Of Cape Town.jpg

"The Cobbler of Cape Town is another outstanding example of Skip's ability to weave a heartwarming story into an inspirational work of art."

—Amazon reviewer


In March of 1938, a humble, wise African cobbler named Eli Tambo was quietly working in his Cape Town shop.

He was also thinking . . .

Though it was years before South Africa’s famous freedom movement began, Eli was thinking deeply about happiness for all people in his divided land—not just for the privileged ones.

At the same time, a distraught yet determined eighteen-year-old named Lucas Van der Meer was arriving in Cape Town from Holland. It was the beginning of what he hoped would be a transformative, healing journey of service after suffering an unthinkable family tragedy.

When destiny brings the unlikely friends together, Eli and Lucas make a divinely inspired pact to lay the groundwork for empowerment and hope for oppressed South Africans.

With The Cobbler’s Creed as their sacred compass, the men begin slowly making progress on the seemingly impossible task—happiness and belief start emerging. . .

But the ruthless, separative South African government soon learns of their work, and the politicians begin fearing the ever-growing influence of the two men, vowing to stop them at any cost.

With their lives in danger and time running out, Eli and Lucas find themselves facing adversity that tests every ounce of their strength and courage.

Set in enchanting, awe-inspiring Africa,The Cobbler of Cape Town is a gripping, heroic tale, and an inspirational guide for those of us on a pilgrimage to overcome fear, doubt, and heartache—and make the world a better place.

Now, Royce finds himself on an unimaginable adventure across the beautiful island of Antigua, searching for a sacred, priceless treasure. One that Godfrey Tillman said would deeply impact Royce—and deeply impact the world.

If the carefully hidden prize could ever be found . . .

Along the way, Royce is led through a series of “coincidental” meetings with wise, inspirational mentors from all walks of life, who somehow seem part of a mysterious, bigger plan to guide
him in reaching his destination.


Mentors who share unique stories of courage, belief, and determination in overcoming their personal pain and suffering— to eventually find their own treasures. Mentors and stories that can inspire us to do the same thing . . .

Five years. . .

Was it even possible that it had already been five years since Royce Holloway spent those magical, transformative seven days in the magnificent gardens with the wise, exotic Indian mentor Maya in The Mystic’s Gift?

After that glorious week when Maya had shared six life-changing principles from an ancient, secret book of wisdom with Royce, not only was he able to finally recover his happiness after a devastating and unthinkable personal tragedy, but also his spiritual and personal powers had evolved to a level that surprised even him.

But now, Royce was ready for a new chapter—to push his skills and his life to a higher level and make an even greater impact on the world.

In fact, he felt something was leading him to do that very thing. . .
So much so, that when Royce’s journey took him to the spectacular, historical Jekyll Island Club Hotel on the Georgia coast, it didn’t surprise him one bit when he “coincidentally” met a mysterious, well-seasoned world traveler.


A traveler whose life was destined to intersect with Royce Holloway’s—in an unforgettable way for them both.

Join Royce on this powerful, spellbinding trek full of mystics, miracles, and inspirational stories.

You may find that your life will never be the same again . . .
