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.”

#274: Vulnerability, Infidelity & God's Redemption

For today’s guest, infidelity as a woman meant double the shame. Jessica McDaniel shares the lies she believed as a teenager about sex, how they followed her into marriage, and (after learning of her husband’s pornography addiction) contributed to justifying an affair.  With full confession, Jesus brought full restoration.  Grab your java and join us!

BONUS! #235: How the Purity Movement Hurt Us

"I always thought that if I did everything the way God told us to, then I would be blessed, I would be happy and I would have a good marriage. That was decidedly not the case."  Well-meaning parents and youth pastors promised marital bliss if you could only make it to the altar as a virgin. For many, the promise didn't deliver. In this episode, Juli brings truth and compassion to the imperfect purity message of the 90s.
