I find it amazing that you’ve written from over 40 countries to tell me that you like the books I write and the people who are my characters. I’m delighted and so is my husband Roy!  If you want to know a big secret, some of those characters are amazingly like our Scandinavian relatives!  (Don’t tell them!!!) Because of our family histories, it’s a special pleasure for me to have the Scandinavian Gift Shop in Alexandria, Minnesota sell my books in their store and through their website. The owners, Sandy Sheets and Heidi Bergerson, are heartwarming sisters who have managed the Scandinavian Gift Shop for five years. Heidi’s husband, Chad Bergerson, builds their website and fills online orders. You’ll find that link when you order my books online. When you write please tell Sandy, Heidi, and Chad thanks! for giving me more time to answer your frequent request– please, Lois, write more books!

    Hi Mrs. Johnson,
    Thank you for writing such amazing books. My daughter loves all your books and goes back and rereads them. She also wants to be an author someday and says you are her favorite author. She hopes that you come out with another new series as she loves the adventures of the characters.

    Vee is still teaching fourth grade at Northside Christian School in Blaine and still using your books! I am still dean at ACTS Bible College, but we moved from Eden Prairie to Blaine not long after Alan Langstaff retired as senior pastor at Antioch Christian Fellowship, to work under Larry Alberts and Don Pfotenhauer at Way of the Cross (now renamed Way of the Lord). Don went to be with the Lord last month; I'll be turning 70 on April 16. I still correspond with Pastor Alan, but have no "new information" on you, your family, or your work. Just ordered 2 new copies of "Escape Into the Night". May the Lord sustain you as we get closer and closer to His promised return! -- Your friend, Brother Lance Wonders

    I read the Northwoods series when I was around Kate's age and several times after that. Then I borrowed it to my niece when she was that age. Now all 5 of my nieces have read your books and currently live in Alexandria, MN! Thank you for writing these stories. Kate and Anders adventures have been such a great example of a faith lived out. Like Little House on the Prarie meets Mere Christianity (for kids)!

    Hello Lois,
    I have fond memories of the days you officed in the same building as the Grantsburg library where I brought my kids every week. Ruthanne, Lydia, and Jonathan all remember you and those days too. I still have the copies of the Northwoods Series you autographed for us. They were read by our adopted sons also, and now my granddaughter Mila and I have been reading them aloud. Mila is Jonathan’s 7 year old daughter. We alternate reading chapters and have had lovely hours together. Thanks for your wonderful, enduring stories!

    When I was a librarian at Howardsville Christian School, your books helped a Jr. High girl to realize she could read and has been reading ever since. (Late 1990s). I am getting ready to purchase the first set of your Northwoods series for my granddaughter who just turned 9. Thank you for developing an interest in reading in many people!

    Hi Lois, I know of you from Vision of Glory Lutheran Church back in late 70s, early 80s. I think you lived in Wisconsin then? I have your early books that I bought for my children who are now nearing and in their 40s. Keeping them for my grandchildren to read in a few years.
    I live near Alex. So may run into you some day at the Scandinavian shop!

    Dear Lois,

    Thank you for writing such encouraging books! I love the Bible verses that the characters use to help them when they're going through tough times. I just finished your Adventures of the Northwoods series, and I'm working on the Freedom Seekers. I think they are awesome and so do my friends. Please write more books!

    Love Lois Walfrid Jonsonn
    I find her books very interesting. Only unfortunately I can not speak much English and would therefore be very happy about it. If they would translate the entire Viking series

    Dear Mrs. Johnson, we are so happy that we discovered your books! We like the characters very much and we love to get into their world of adventure. Most of all we are happy to get informed of the time past in the USA, through the storys. And that the characters and you are loving Jesus is great! We are looking for reading the next German version of freedom seekers!
    May the Lord bless you and your family!

    Dear Mrs Johnson,
    I live in Germany and I´m 15 years old. I like your books so much.
    Especially the Adventures of the Northwoods.
    When I had read all 10 books, I was so sad that I just decided to write the eleventh book. I have little time, so I'm only about 40 pages. I wish it would be as good as yours.
    Especially great I would find when the Adventures of the Northwoods books would be filmed. I would have a great title song: Tennessee by Pearl Harbor.
    I have a question, would you write even more books of the series Adventures of the Northwoods?
    I would be very happy if you write me back soon.
    I wish you God's blessing and protection.
    Greetings Mirjam.

    Mrs. Johnson-
    Please write another series about Libby and Caleb. I want to read more about them and what happens when they get older. You are such a great writer and your books have helped me a lot. I'm going through kinda of a tough time right now, and I just finished the Freedom Seekers. They've been very helpful. Thank you and God bless!

      Thank you, Emily, for wanting to read more about Libby and Caleb. When I'm writing I learn to love my characters and also want to write more. But right now I can't promise because I'm in the midst of doing something else (still a secret!)

      I'm sorry that you've been going through a tough time. I'm very grateful that the Freedom Seekers helped you. I pray the Lord's continuing help as you need it. And I also ask that he gives you Bible verses that you can repeat to yourself. That's BIG for all of us! One of my favorites is Deut. 31:8.

      Love and hugs-- Lois

        There is something for everyone in this collection. English and Armenian speaking kids alike can enjoy these classic stories with a comical twist. The books in Armenian are an excellent read for kids in Armenian School programs. The illustrations are engaging and since the stories are familiar, our kids are more eager to read these in Armenian and reinforce their Armenian speaking and reading skills.

          What fun to have you write! I'm glad your children are enjoying my stories. Have my books been translated into Armenian? Blessings upon you and your children! Lois

      I bought the enrtie collection of books for my kids, and also for my nephews who live in California. The kids' ages range from 4-10 yrs. old, and all of them enjoy the books. My kids find the books to be funny and fun to read. My husband and I appreciate the creative way that the books reinforce the Armenian language and culture to our kids. Great initiative by the author to capture in story-form what we as Armenian parents have experienced during our youth. As more and more generations of American-Armenians grow farther away from our foreign-born parents' customs and rituals, these books allow us to bring the concepts back and share the funny anecdotes with our children so that they can continue to exist in their repetoire of the Armenian culture.

        Hi my new friend! I'm delighted that you find my books helpful. Are your family roots from near Bogota, Columbia, or from somewhere in Asia? Blessings upon you and your family-- Lois
