Readers, we have an interesting nonfiction book today.

Welcome Julie. What would you like for our readers to know about you personally?
I love God and live to create content that inspires life transformation and faith in the lives of believers. I love the quote by Brother Lawrence who writes: “God needing nothing sees in our works only the love that accompanies them.”

Tell us about your family.
My husband Greg and I have been married for 15 + years. I have a beautiful, 19 year-old step-daughter (pursuing a worship internship with Hillsong). Our middle daughter is a brilliant and vivacious14 year old, longs to be a missionary. Our youngest is 12 years old, who since he was 4 declared his passion to be a preacher. We enjoy movie going, beach walking, and watching Sunday night food network TV together.

Have you written other nonfiction books?
Yep. I’ve contributed to When God Steps In and What I Wish My Mother Had Told Me About Marriage.

Do you have any other books in the works right now?
What I Wish My Mother Had Told Me about Marriage… a prequel written in 2007 has been re-written … and will be re-released in 2014.

What kinds of hobbies and leisure activities do you enjoy?
Reading, writing, public speaking, cooking, hanging out with family at the movies or the beach, but my favorite is holding morning talks with my hubby; we sip coffee and share together, praying and encouraging one another, every day!

Why did you write the featured book?
I wrote What I Wish My Mother Had Told Me About Men because I’m convinced that as women read my story and witness how far God ran to rescue me, they will find hope for their soul.

What do you want the reader to take away from the book?
The central theme that permeates every chapter in the book is that God fights for their affection, LOVES them passionately, and only He can satisfy the longings of their soul.

Where on the Internet can the readers find you?

Phillip, I'd like nothing more than to take down the verification, but my blog is very popular, so it's targeted by spammers. When the word verification isn't there. Comments that have no place on a Christian blog flood the comment section. That's why I keep it active.
