First of all, how is your relationship with your family of origin?

I had a 7-year family estrangement with my parents, who were in Christian ministry, so I get it. (Yes, I am a preacher’s kid.) Thankfully we reconciled after God miraculously intervened!

Julie is a wife, mom, teacher, author, and blogger. Before she married, she taught speech, drama, and English in the Richardson Independent School District. After marriage, Julie homeschooled her two children for a short stint and quickly realized that a school setting was probably better for everyone involved! Julie has volunteered regularly in South Texas doing VBS, construction, and door-to-door witnessing. Now that her children are grown, she works for her husband, writes, and speaks about her books Marriage Interrupted and Estranged. Julie and her husband have been married for 30 years and live in Texas with their very crazy, 6-pound Shih-Tzu.
