Let’s face it: As Christians, we’re kind of afraid to touch. Touch feels unsafe and sexual—even worldly—and we can be led to believe that the more boundaries we put in place, the "better off" we'll all be. Except, well … Jesus touched. And he allowed others to touch him: A prostitute washed his feet and dried it with her hair. He used his hands to rub mud on blind eyes. He invited Thomas to place his fingers in the nail holes in his palms. Is it time to re-think the way we view touch?
Are you grieved by the pain and brokenness you see in your news feed each day? We are too. God’s Word tells us that when one part of the Body is hurting, the entire body hurts with it. How can we listen to, learn from, and lift up our black friends and neighbors? Join Juli and her friend Hasandra Heyward for a conversation that sets an example for how you can have conversations that heal.
The one-and-done "sex talk" doesn't work, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't talk to your kids about sex. When it comes to sexuality, your kids are growing up in a completely different world than you did. You probably won't find much success in just telling them what to think about sexuality; you're going to have to show them HOW to think about it. Sound hard? It is. Need help and encouragement?

There are things we feel are acceptable to struggle with, and then there are those things we would never say out loud –especially around other Christians! In this episode, Juli sits down with Jamie Ivey, host of The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey, for a conversation about authenticity, confession and knowing exactly who you are in Jesus.
How I get rid of the images that keep popping up in my mind? How can I rebuild trust with my husband when access to porn (his smartphone) is always in his hands? How do I begin having conversations with my kids? Juli and her guests answer these questions and more in this panel discussion on pornography from our 2019 Reclaim Conference.
