Alli Worthington says the popular message that “you are enough” is leaving women feeling overwhelmed and burnt out. As a business coach to future writers, speakers and podcasters following their God-given dreams—she would know! While this little phrase sounds good—and even makes us feel good—it’s pointing us in the wrong direction. Join Juli and Alli to hear why the secret to strength, grace, and stepping into the dream God has planted in your heart is obedience and dependence on Him.
Lysa TerKeurst tells Juli about the brokenness and restoration of her marriage and how forgiveness is both a decision and a process. She speaks candidly about what biblical forgiveness really is, and how it can set you free from the suffering caused by another person's unwillingness to say, "I'm sorry." Grab your Java and join us!
Does 2020 have you feeling exhausted? Dissatisfied? Here’s a crazy thought: Put down your to-do list. What if you start the first 30 days of 2021 by surrendering your to-do list to Jesus and listening for His voice? You can turn to devotionals, blogs, and even great podcasts like Java with Juli—but only the presence of God can bring the fulfillment you crave. What does it feel like to hunger and thirst for Him? Join Juli, Linda, and Hannah as Linda shares how God taught her to find fulfillment by sitting at His feet. We challenge YOU to try it for 30 days and see what God will do!
We talk often on Java with Juli about our culture’s confusing messages around sexuality. But today’s guest, Russell Moore, contends that we’re not so much confused about what is true or right as we are fearful; fearful of standing alone, fearful of swimming against the cultural tide. In this episode, hear how the gift of courage is not about bravado, performance, or getting on one's soapbox. Instead, courage is born in the unseen moments when we are utterly dependent on God—moments where He shapes us for His glory and also for the benefit of generations to come.
Circumstances in Laurie’s life started triggering her memories of childhood sexual abuse. Her lifelong struggle with same-sex attraction flared. Alone on a silent retreat, she recommitted herself to God and to her husband Matt. But she wasn’t sure she would ever be able to be sexually intimate with him again.
Matt wanted a marriage with the comforts of sexual intimacy and to be pursued physically by his wife, yet he knew forcing Laurie to do either would not only be ineffective, but unchristlike as well. This marriage felt impossible.
