Julie’s desire to reach women and men who have experienced childhood sexual abuse came out of her own healing, during which she created 2 curriculum series, In the Wildflowers and Into My Arms, as well as 2 documentaries. All are to heal the wounded from childhood sexual abuse and the trauma of abortion. For years she has listened to the heartbeat of God each step of the way as He wove each piece of the process together.
