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.”

#267: Are You Having Sex or Building Intimacy?

You can be sexually active without being sexually intimate. But is that God's best? Our sexuality is designed to be laced with spiritual and relational significance, but we have all been impacted by sin, busyness, and the cultural trend to see sex as simply something that we do (or worse: a "duty").  Pull up a chair with Juli, Linda and Yvette as they discuss the difference between sexual intimacy and sexual activity.

Guests: Linda Dillow & Yvette Maher

#266: Your Marriage, God's Design

What do you want out of marriage?  If you’re like most of us, you hope for love, companionship, passion and other good things that happen to be self-serving.  But our guests in this episode, Aaron & Jennifer Smith, contend that “like everything that God gives us, [marriage] is not intended for us only.”  Grab your coffee, pull up a chair and be challenged to think about marriage in a way that transcends what you hope to get out of it.

#265: The Hard (and Hopeful) Truth About Losing a Spouse

“God created our bodies to become one in marriage in a very physical and neurological way. When that is suddenly ripped apart, there’s a severe grieving that happens …and nobody talks about it.”   In this episode Juli sits down with Rachael Flick, widow of fallen police officer Micah Flick, to learn about living through the loss of a spouse.  Whether you’re divorced or widowed (or you know someone who recently has been), grab your java and pull up a chair for an honest conversation about the difficult moments, the beautiful moments, and the daily life in between.

#263: Experiencing Sexual Pleasure, Part 2

Sex with your husband sounds nice…but the busyness of day-to-day life leaves you feeling disconnected. In part two of this conversation, Juli and her guest move from talking about getting your body ready, to getting your emotions ready! The emotional aspect of your marriage is an important part of the “sexual desire triangle".  Being intentional about building an emotional connection with your man (talking, date nights, taking a “sex-cation”) will create intimacy that spills over into the bedroom.  Grab your java and join us to learn more!

Guest: Dr. Jennifer Degler
