Hi, I’m Julie. And these are the loves of my life. Pretty much everything I do, I think of them. I just want to make them proud.
If there’s one thing you need to know about my little family and me it’s that we really love people. We’re fascinated by others. And they’ve pushed me to start this blog so I could take my love for others and for Jesus to a whole new level. They’re so good to me! My biggest cheerleaders: Josh (the hubs), Asher (my modern knight), and Lydie (my sweet angel). I can’t introduce myself without introducing them, because you’ll probably hear me talk about them. My husband is a pastor of teens right now at a large church. I get to help him, while also ministering with the women in my church.
But what brings me to this very spot is you. I’m so fascinated by you — what makes you tick, what excites your heart. I’m here on this blog because I desperately want to encourage you and help you live a life that is fully alive. I want to help you get free from the things holding you back from experiencing life and God to the fullest. And I’ve learned so much through my own life’s ups and downs.
Other things about me? I grew up in a small town in Nebraska dreaming of being the next Diana Ross as I watched American Band Stand on Saturday nights. Those dreams have changed shape and molded into various things over the years, everything from journalism news to church planter. I’m also the founder of a national and international food magazine called Delight Gluten Free.
It wasn’t till recently that I got up the nerve to call myself a writer. It brought me back to my childhood! I’ve always been a lover of stories. That’s why you matter here. I want to know your story. And if you don’t think you have one, I want to be your story coach and help you see God in it.
Don’t hesitate to drop me a line. I would love to start knowing you better as soon as I can.
Thanks for coming by Eyes Wide Heart Deep!
