Don't Mom Alone Podcast

God kinda rocks my world. In a good way.

Here’s where I get bossy . . . –> Do. not. miss. today’s podcast seriously.

I was BLOWN AWAY when Julie Romero sent me a Facebook message last week and shared her story.

To back up a second. . . I first met Julie in college. We weren’t besties, but at a small Christian school, ya kinda “know” everyone. Especially since we graduated the same year and had a common friend.

Fast forward to last November (2013) when I saw Julie’s face in my Instagram feed and I asked the question, “Did you go to Taylor University?” That simple comment was one stone in the path God took Julie, releasing her from the spiritual desert she found herself.

Only God.

In this episode listen to:

  • Julie share about serving in a church for over a decade eventually leading to burn out.
  • How she cried out, “God, I don’t know what you’re doing? Have you forgotten about me?”
  • How God used a creative season & a craft show to connect she and I
  • How Julie found godly, authentic community via social media
  • What happened when she waited for God to reveal His perfect plan to use her gifts
  • The exciting creative discipleship retreats Julie is facilitating for young women
