The God Interviews resound with human pathos and reverberate with truths that transform. Cleverly set in a television studio with its make and break realities, the interviews reveal our Lord as alive and active in today’s challenging world. Each chapter sparkles with wit, unerring honesty, and biblical soundness. Here is a book that reaches the depth of human experience and interprets the ageless love and wisdom of Christ in an altogether readable form.
––Marlene Chase, retired Editor in Chief, Salvation Army National Publications; Author of Our God Comes
Christ truly cares about the concerns and questions of a woman’s heart. Julie has creatively packaged many of these questions with answers drawn from His words in Scripture. Christ is sufficient—for every challenge. Julie’s book is a great reminder of that truth.
LaHaye, founder Concerned Women for America
Author of the best-selling The Spirit-controlled Woman
Defining Julie’s work and ministry is a complex task. She has the creative mind of a writer, the compassionate heart of a long-time caregiver, the tenacity of an inquisitive journalist, the others-centeredness of a successful businesswoman. All these she brings to her daily ministry through writing, publishing, conference speaking, Bible teaching, blogging, writer coaching, and caregiving.
Her newest books are, The GOD Interviews: Questions You Would Ask; Answers God Gives and an emotion-laced 30-day devotional written while her dad was battling pancreatic cancer: Comforting Words for Caregivers … and those they love.
Julie’s topics are as varied as her talents. Audience favorites include her practical questions for God teaching series (based on The GOD Interviews), Sisters in Faithtopical studies, tools for digging into the Word, prayer from Christ’s perspective, and comfort for caregivers of aging parents.
