Helping Women Reclaim Their True Identity in God.

Julie’s greatest desire is for all women to know their identity as daughters of the one true King.  Through scripture, personal stories, and good ‘ole Holy Spirit inspiration, Julie leads women to discover their God given gifts and feminine authenticity. She truly believes that women empowered with the Gospel can change the world by living their feminine genius.

Julie’s message is one that women of all ages can benefit from.

Restored and Radiant

Come and get some R & R.

Women, girlfriends, gal pals, you are the be-loved daughter of the one true King. God loves you but it is not always easy to welcome Him into the spaces of our hearts. How can we fully receive His love?  What keeps us from inviting our Lord into those unseen spaces in our hearts?  Drawing from my own journey,  I will share the heartaches and the joys that will lead us to be restored women and radiant before Our Father.

Women, You Are a Genius!

St. John Paul II is one of my heroes. It is through his writings on women, that I discovered my own true identity and worth.  Based on St. John Paul II”s writing, Mulerius Dignitatum: the Dignity of Women, I will outline the four uniquely imbued gifts created in all women that will give you deeper faith and freedom to be who you are.

Second Vatican Council . . .

“The hour is coming, in fact has come, when the vocation of women is being acknowledged in its fullness. The hour in which women acquire in the world an influence, an effect and a power never hitherto achieved. That is why, at this moment when the human race is undergoing so deep transformation, women imbued with a spirit of the Gospel can do so much to aid humanity in not falling.”

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

It can thus be said that women, by looking to Mary, find in her the secret of living their femininity with dignity and of achieving their own true advancement. In the light of Mary, the Church sees in the face of women the reflection of a beauty which mirrors the loftiest sentiments of which the human heart is capable.

~St. John Paul II the Great

The Genius of Women…

“It is thus my hope, dear sisters, that you will reflect carefully on what it means to speak of the ‘genius of women‘, not only in order to be able to see in this phrase a specific part of God’s plan which needs to be accepted and appreciated, but also in order to let this genius be more fully expressed in the life of society as a whole, as well as in the life of the Church.”
