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.”

#290: True Friendship, or merely Friend-ish?

A sweet friendship refreshes the soul –and it’s better to have a friend nearby than a relative far away (Proverbs 27).  So it’s no surprise that we feel hurt when our Christian friend lets us down, or confused when our loyalty isn’t returned. In this episode, Juli and her guest talk about how you can discern the difference between true friendship and relationships that are merely friend-ish.

#287: Does God Want Me to Have Good Self-Esteem?

How do I convince myself and everyone else that I’m worthy of being loved? That may not be what the question sounds like in our minds, but when we measure our worth based on things like accomplishments, appearance, intelligence, education ―even our  work in the church—we are going to come up empty. Join us for a conversation about how we can truly come to understand that there is something more profound than what other people think about us.

Guests: Linda Dillow & Yvette Maher
