Without knowing God, Julie spent most of her life as a perfectionist aiming to achieve the best in every endeavor. She earned her Master's degree in counseling and began working with children and families in 1997. In 2001, Julie transitioned to marketing behavioral health services. She used her administrative, public speaking and teaching skills to educate organizations on mental health.
Underneath her professional persona, Julie lived in the midst of grief/depression/shame/doubt while experiencing many losses. Just when life could not get any harder, Julie was rescued by a pastor’s wife whom God appointed as her disciple. In her fortieth year, Julie believed in God for the first time. After a profound transformative experience at a women’s retreat, Julie gave her full heart to the Lord in the Fall of 2014. Each day forward, Julie chooses to live on the narrow path God offers to all people. Though life can still be messy with Him, Julie is forever grateful to walk with Jesus after being trapped by darkness for too long.
Answering God’s call, Julie offers her story of His power in her writing and speaking. Julie’s core message in ministry points to faith as the best choice in a difficult world. She wants all to know healing and life-giving changes are possible with Jesus.
Julie is thankful for her marriage to Jason, a blessing before she ever knew what a blessing was. At the start of their marriage, Jason served four years in the United States Airforce. Currently, he is in his tenth year as a police officer. The couple stays lovingly busy with their two sons in the seventh and fifth grades.
Every morning, you will find Julie with a strong cup of coffee and her devotional. When she is not writing, she is hiking with her husband or walking in their neighborhood. She is a sports mom, so weekends are where the games are!
Three times a week, Julie posts on her blog https://juliedibblewrites.wordpress.com. She has a story coming out in a Christmas Moments book this December. Follow Julie at https://Facebook.com/jdibble4Him for updates on writing and speaking.
