Cookie Johnson is a NY Times bestselling author, wife to Earvin “Magic” Johnson, mother to their three children, André, Earvin Johnson III (EJ), and Elisa. Cookie’s the founder of CJ by Cookie Johnson, a premium denim line. In addition to their 39 year journey of love and perseverance in the face of Magic’s medical condition, Cookie and Earvin have endured other challenges. Their son, EJ eventually revealed what the couple had suspected since EJ was a toddler; he is gay. Their daughter, Elisa, whom they’d adopted as an infant, also asked to connect with her birth mother and father—a difficult experience Cookie discusses candidly.
The Michigan State University graduate uses her journey and testimony as a child of God, wife, mother, caretaker, entrepreneur, and philanthropist to inspire others and help others navigate the challenges of life.
