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.”

#281: Growing Closer Through Conflict

There’s no such thing as instant intimacy. Love at first sight? Perhaps. But intimacy is something else entirely.  It takes years to fully know and accept the person you’re married to. In this episode, Juli and her guest dive into why healthy conflict is one of the best ways to build intimacy with your spouse.

#280: When Submission Becomes Controlling

Sarah got married believing that absolute submission to her husband would glorify God; making Him, her and her man happy. Only, she wasn't happy. Neither was her husband, really. In this episode, Juli and her guests talk about what can happen when we misunderstand what the Bible says about our roles as men and women in marriage.

Guests: Sarah O'Connor & Dr. Ron Welch
