Very simply, this "dream" was developed out of a deep desire to use the creative gifts that God has given me, both physical and spiritual, to further His kingdom. As a professional interior designer and a mother of two, God began to show me that the creative talents I have are gifts from Him, and that they can be used to change people's lives. Through extensive prayer, God has led me to turn this dream into a reality by forming a non-profit organization - Kingdom Design Ministries.
The main goal of this ministry is to uplift the name of Jesus Christ. The "room makeovers" are simply the platform that allows us to bring the spirit of God into people's homes. This opportunity offers more than just a pretty new room for the receiving family. Through this service we bring families closer together in Christ, they receive hope. We strive to help the individual child realize that they are valuable in God's eyes. To assure them that despite their circumstances, He has a purpose, a plan for their lives. They can make a difference in the world because "all things are possible to him that believes" Mark 9:23
Most of all, if anyone in the family has never accepted Jesus Christ as their personal savior, we pray that this ministry will open the door to that opportunity. Our job is to be obedient to the call God has placed on our lives...then, leave the results up to Him!
In Christ,
Missy Johnson

Natalie Ford
September 11, 2001
The same day that changed our country forever also changed this family forever. As the twin towers came crumbling down in NYC, so did their world! Sitting in the doctor's office, they heard the terrible words "Your two year old daughter has cancer".

The scripture verse that sustained their family during Natalie's illness was John 14:1-3 "Let not your heart be troubled, you believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you so. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, you will be also"
