Life on Capitol Hill

Not many people find themselves at a U.S. senator’s birthday party or meeting a former vice president, let alone at the young age of 22, but for Moriah Johnson, rubbing shoulders with political figures has become a regular part of life.

After graduating from Cedarville and marrying her college sweetheart, Jake, in December of 2021, Moriah settled into life on Capitol Hill. Jake continued working for a United States senator, and Moriah began working for a conservative think tank, The Heritage Foundation.

One year later, the two have firmly established themselves in our nation’s capital.

But things weren’t always smooth sailing for the two of them. Just weeks after beginning to date, Moriah realized it just wasn’t the right time, so she broke up with Jake.

But through the Lord’s faithfulness and a change of heart, the two started dating again and have truly become better together – seeking to shine as lights in a dark place.

During her time as a student, Moriah realized the value and joy of hospitality and pouring into the younger women – and she continues to do just that!

Listen to hear Moriah share her story on the Cedarville Stories Podcast.

Editors Note: As of March 20, 2023, Moriah is working for U.S. Senator Deb Fischer (R-NE) as a deputy scheduler and executive assistant to Senator Fischer’s chief of staff.
