writer + curator

My name is Leia Bryn Johnson. Welcome to Leia Bryn, a creatively and thoughtfully curated story documenting my family and work. Here, I share writings, photographs, and moments captured from my life as a wife, mother, missionary, and follower of Christ. I currently reside with my husband in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where together we work as missionaries for an international missions organization. In my spare time I write here at Leia Bryn. Thank you for stopping by! I love to connect with my readers, so feel welcome to leave a comment or send an email.

Guy & leia Johnson (+ Bray)

I met Guy my freshmen year of college at the University of Minnesota. He had an afro and was majoring in engineering. I was a brunette majoring in Architecture. By our junior year we started dating, and by senior year found ourselves engaged with a wedding date set for October 2011. We graduated, him with a B.S. in Economics and myself with a B.S. in Architecture and currently work in neither of our respective fields. Instead, we work together for a ministry that impacted our lives greatly during our college years. In four years we have lived in two cities, traveled three countries together, moved six times, and in November 2015 welcomed our first daughter, Bray Ruby, into our lives. Thanks for joining us on this journey here at Leia Bryn!
