Java with Juli is a fresh, relevant, and conversational new podcast wrestling with questions about relationships and sexuality.

It is NOT your traditional Christian podcast! No topics or questions are too challenging or risky to discuss. Nothing is taboo, but all is biblically-based and God-honoring. If you tune in, you’ll find that we openly chat about things many women wonder but don’t know where, or who, to go to for honest answers. We embrace a casual & multi-generational feel that has listeners imagining that they’re also “at the table.”

#295: We All "Desconstruct," It's Reconstructing that Matters

Questions about sexuality, sexual abuse, and gender have sent a new wave of “deconstructing” throughout the Christian community—people turning from their faith because God hasn’t turned out to be who they thought He was. When a loved one struggles, we tend to get nervous and try to talk them out of their doubts or choices. Join us for a conversation about why it's okay—and even good—for us to wrestle with our faith and ask God hard questions.

Guests: Hannah Nitz & Tricia Lott Williford

#294: When You Want Sex, But Your Spouse Doesn't

In every marriage, there is typically one partner with a higher sexual drive. And that person is usually trying to convince the other to have more sex! In this episode, Juli and her guest talk about how to move beyond "I have a need, and you have an obligation" to something much more intimate.

Guest: Dr. Corey Allan

#293: Secrets to a Lasting Relationship

Dating has changed. A LOT. In the last decade, cohabitation, sex, and sexual experimentation have been touted as the best ways to get to know someone (or yourself). Couples who try to marry these ideas with their Christian faith often end up hurt and confused. Join Juli and author Scott Kedersha for a conversation that will help couples --dating, engaged, and newlywed-- navigate faulty messages about love, and take the next step toward an intimate and fulfilling marriage.

#101: Following God's Dream for Your Life

We all dream of things we want to make happen in our lives. But what if we told you that you had to surrender it all; that you have to lay down your desires for you and your loved ones in order to get what’s really best for you (and them)? This conversation is for the woman who wants God’s best, but finds it really hard to let go of the dreams she holds dear. (Isn't that all of us?)
