“I love my job at Authentic Intimacy because it is God’s call on my life for this season. Everywhere I look, I see lives ruined by unfulfilled promises of love and sexual brokenness. God is able to redeem our pain and restore us to wholeness when we seek His truth and healing. It all begins with authentically knowing and trusting God. Through this ministry, God is redeeming lives and marriages with His truth. What could be more exciting than that?” - Juli
