Hi! I’m Julie and I’m a woman that loves God, enjoys life, lives near the beach, and is crazy about spending time with my friends and family.
And I love to write about the good things I know, see, and want to remember.
I work as an administrative assistant at a local Christian school and I spend my days loving kids, helping teachers, supporting parents, and doing whatever else my boss asks me to do.
And I hand out chocolate. Hugs and chocolate. Advice and chocolate. Care and chocolate. Love and chocolate. I keep a candy jar filled with chocolate on my desk to share with the teens as they stop by between classes, the little ones when they come to get bandaged up, the teachers when they need a pick-me-up, and just about every other person that makes their way through our school doors each day.
I look so forward to going to work each day. I love my job so much!
And long before this, I served as a U.S. Marine, military wife, mom, pastor’s wife, ladies ministry coordinator, Bible study teacher, conference speaker, blog writer, grandma, friend, neighbor, and family member.
Actually, I’m still enjoying serving as many of those things – minus being a wife and a U.S. Marine. These are the days I’m simply known as “Miss Julie”.
Life often takes us to places we wouldn’t want to go and teaches us amazing lessons as we journey through them.
I have been blessed to travel all over the world, meet just about everyone who is anyone, and experience just about everything under the sun. Hey – I’m even a breast cancer survivor.
I love rainy days, early mornings, coffee with creamer served in pretty china cups. I enjoy kayaking, beach walks, reading books, hosting my book club, attending my church, playing Words with Friends, watching When Calls the Heart while eating homemade kale chips, and visiting my children and grandchildren.
God has been good to me and my life has been a pleasure to live.
If you are looking for a friend, I want you to know that you have found one in me. I love friendship and I love you already! I don’t want any one in this world to feel as though they are all alone. We are all in this together – it’s true! We are!
This journal is my way of sharing good things with the world around me that enjoys reading about good things. If that’s you, I want to encourage you to grab a cup of coffee, tea, or whatever it is you love and join me here as we journey forward, enjoying life and being encouraged by good things together.
p.s. I love connecting with you! Please feel free to email me and leave comments as often as you wish. 💞
