Amanda & Aaron Johnson

After twenty years of facilitating transformative experiences through story literacy, writing, and narrative medicine, Amanda Johnson is determined to empower a generation that challenges disempowering narratives with curiosity and love, heals the st*ries that hold us back, and co-authors a magically-ever-after.

In 2007, after several years of helping others question, recognize, and articulate ideas and arguments as a Teacher and Writing Coach, Amanda uncovered her own true intention and began a lifelong quest to embody it. Alchemizing the lessons, skills, and tools gathered from experiments with self-image and psycho cybernetics, a Socratic approach to the Classics in the honors program, child development and psychology of learning classes in her teacher training, social-emotional literacy workshops in the transformational facilitator program, and adventures in motherhood, Amanda committed her life to changing the world with more powerful messaging. Quickly, she realized that her work would be more about the messenger than the message, as she navigated tough conversations with her son and started a business through which she witnessed individuals heal their stories as they wrote and shared them.

As a Speaker, Facilitator, Storyteller, Strategist, Guide, and Ally through The Story Oracle and Saved By Story, she partners with emerging leaders (of all ages and titles) to become uncompromising agents of change in their families, communities, and industries. With her partners at Saved By Story, she midwifes paradigm-changing brands, content, and more whole thought leaders and storytellers into the world with st*ry-saving quests and message-manifesting retreats. From inspiration to impact, she and her team help inspired souls dissolve the lies, reorganize their sacred material, and become truer to intention with every piece of content they craft, love offering they launch, and system they develop to change the world.

In 2013, Amanda wrote Upside-Down Mommy and shared The Butterfly Approach philosophy responsible for her growth as a parent, messenger, and coach. In 2018, she published Upside-Down Messenger and made The Messenger Matrix more visible. In 2022, she published two collaborative titles: You Can’t Make This St*ry Up is a collaboration with twenty of her clients curated to help creatives and coaches recognize and lean into the magic and mess of becoming a powerful change agent, and A Religion of Story is a collaboration with her son crafted to share the experience and results of mindfully engaging Story to cultivate character and agency in children and culture.

She lives in Prescott, Arizona, with her high-school-sweetheart-turned-husband and loves spending time with her favorite story junkie, business partner, and son on the weekends.

As a Project/Administrative Manager and Tech Strategist, Aaron Johnson helps entrepreneurs discover and unleash potential in themselves and their businesses using intuitive systems and soulful technology. Entrepreneurial at heart, Aaron has been deeply involved with start-ups since he was a child and mesmerized by Story and the hero’s journey. When he began paving his own non-traditional education and career paths and rediscovered some of his own potential through Improv, Debate, and Mock Trial competitions, he quickly realized that every system and solution needs to be unique because every person’s vision, mission, and path is different.

Seeing how crucial Community and Communication are, Aaron integrated everything he had learned about connection and leadership from mentors, personal adventures, and stories into his approach to systems, teams, and building businesses. That’s when he founded his Consulting and Management company, Caterbuilder Solutions, through which he helps entrepreneurs cater to their crowd and build their dreams.

Today, he’s helping build an intergenerational network of change-makers that help individuals clarify their gifts/talents and unfold their unique potential so they can be and create the change they want to see in the world. He’s also collaborating with paradigm-changers to build a publishing house that highlights the healing process of book writing and pushes messengers’ messages further into the world. It’s always more than just a book, which is why this is more than just a publishing house.

When he’s not masterminding or managing, Aaron spends his time meditating on and writing about big ideas, important lessons, and the power of Story. In 2022, his healing-through-writing experience was published in You Can’t Make This St*ry Up: What If It’s All Happening For Us?, a collaboration with twenty other messengers about the transformation and divine synchronicities experienced in the creative process. About five months later, he published his second collaborative work, A Religion of Story: A Powerful Way to Cultivate Character and Preserve Freedom In Our Children and Culture, and became a two-time bestselling author at nineteen. In it, he and his mom shared their most profound conversations, lessons learned, and a unique approach to mindfully using Story to cultivate character and a well-rounded worldview in children.

Aaron’s passion lies with creating educational opportunities like he had while he was in school that value and cultivate the innate superpowers of the individual and put youth in charge of their learning journey. Participating in meaningful conversation and sparking solutions to complex problems are what keep him up at night and his flame of motivation burning.
