Julie is a wife, mother, author, teacher, and blogger. Before she married, she taught speech, drama, and English for three years in the Richardson Independent School District. After she married, she stayed home with her two children and spent time volunteering locally and at the South Texas border. Now that her kids are grown, she works intermittently for her husband, writes, and speaks about family issues. Julie and her husband have been married for 28 years and live in Dallas, Texas.
After a heartbreaking 7-year estrangement from parents in full-time ministry, Julie realized she was not alone in her feelings of shame and her struggles to interact with family in a healthy way. Now that she has reconciled with her parents, she wishes to help others find hope when experiencing a family rift or break.
