Life is tends to put labels on us. We even pin labels on ourselves. More often than not, these labels are hurtful, superficial, and false. But God has a new name He longs for you to hear - a name that is free from shame and brings hope for your future. Join Juli and her guest, Esther Fleece Allen, for an encouraging conversation about our identity. In His Word, God has told us exactly who we are. It’s time to believe.
It’s easy to love the neighbor who looks like us, thinks like us, and believes like us. With those who don't fall into those categories, we struggle. In this episode, Juli and her guest, Alexandra Kuykendall from The Open Door Sisterhood, give you practical steps to get out of your comfort zone and have conversations with people you might not naturally have conversations with. Want to do a better job of loving your neighbor? Start here.
Theology meets real life in this episode of Java with Juli! We’re asking the difficult questions about identity and sexuality: Why does language (e.g. “gay” versus “same-sex attracted”) matter? Can two people of the same gender share covenant love? Are some people born gay? As you do life with friends in the LGBT+ community, HOW you answer these questions is important, but maybe not so important as HOW WELL you listen.
Guests: Laurence Koo, Lori Wildenberg, and Sarah Schepins (Axis.org)
An early theologian once wrote, “We know that when a couple has sexual intercourse, the Holy Spirit leaves the room.” If you were raised in the church, you might agree—and not be so sure you'd even want Him there! After all, is there any time you’re feeling less "spiritual" than when you’re having sex? But in fact, the Bible suggests just the opposite is true. Join Juli, Linda, and Hannah on this episode of Java with Juli as they talk about why sex in marriage is not only beautiful, it’s holy.
"Will I cause a set-back in my husband’s recovery if I say no to sex?"
"My daughter talks to me about her porn addiction, but she’s mortified at the thought of telling her dad, is that okay?"
"My husband confessed to looking at women on Instagram. It wasn’t exactly a porn relapse—so why am I so angry about it?"
This week, our guest is Jonathan Daugherty, author of Grace Based Recoveryand founder of Be Broken Ministries. He sits down with Juli to offer hope, encouragement, and answers to oft-asked questions we get from listeners about pornography. Whether you’re an addict, a spouse, or a friend walking this journey with a loved one, you’ll want to tune in to this Java with Juli.
