Johnson, a former broadcaster, got her start at KSL in Salt Lake City and later was a co-host of CBS's "The Early Show," and a correspondent for "48." She also worked for ABC and NPR.
Johnson spoke at the concluding fireside of a three-day summit for YSAs in the Bonneville, Granger, Murray East, Holladay and Sugar House regions. Organizers estimated 3,000 Mormon young adults attended the conference, which included a keynote address Saturday by Jill Stevens Shepherd, concerts and workshops from an array of presenters.
Jill Stevens Shepherd encourages YSAs to be proud of who they are "If there is one thing that I believe more intimately, more powerfully than anything in this life, it is this: Trust in the Lord," she said.
