family estrangement


Mom Remade is a place that empowers women to live a Christian life despite the influences of the world. You will find biblical encouragement on family, marriage, and parenting from a Christian mom and classroom teacher who has raised two kids. 

One thing I have learned as a wife of 26 years and mother of two adult children is that you never stop praying. And a good sense of humor helps for the days that will never get posted on Facebook.   

There is no such thing as a perfect wife, parent, or family. Just God’s grace to live another day. In fact, I wrote a book about my seven-year family estrangement and restoration. (Did I mention grace?) 

Actually, I do know one other thing for sure–God is good, and He has a plan despite our family problems. Albeit, there may be a few turns to the left, but eventually, He works all things for good to those who love Him (Romans 8:28). 

I hope you will be blessed as you read these words of encouragement and let God speak to your heart. Who knows, you may even learn a few things while you are at it!

Mom Remade-Biblical Encouragement For WomenJulie Plagens

Julie is a wife, mother, teacher, author, 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.

Julie has volunteered for many years locally and in South Texas doing VBS, food distribution, and door-to-door witnessing. Now that her children are grown, she is a substitute teacher for a private school in Dallas, works intermittently for her husband, and speaks about her book Estranged.

In 2008, Julie was diagnosed with a life-threatening disease (Crohn’s disease). Due to the seriousness of her illness, she decided to leave her family of origin because the relationship with her parents was causing physical, mental, and emotional stress. But this was not just any estrangement as both of her parents had been in full-time ministry for many years. Her father a well-known restaurateur (The Italian Village, Gringo’s Nightclub), and later, the associate pastor of two megachurches in Dallas, Texas. 

After seven years of no contact, Julie felt God calling her back to her family but didn’t know how to return. Every bridge had been burned with no hope of reconciliation. It was then Julie prayed and fasted. Through divine intervention, the relationship was mended. Now that Julie has reunited with her family, she wishes to bring hope to those who may feel alone or have shame about their family problems or estrangement.

When Julie is not talking about forgiveness, she is sharing helpful tips on her blog about family, parenting, marriage, and faith. Julie lives with her husband of 27 years in Dallas, Texas.
