“Julie’s presentation was very touching and heartwarming!  She was honest, real, and genuine.  Hearing about her life experiences helped open my eyes to see what a parent of a child with Autism goes through, and that there is so much hope and light in their journey! “

Julie’s hilarious outlook, words of encouragement and real-life stories made this an entertaining, relatable and truly memorable event for so many parents and caregivers. It was a delight to work with and get to know Julie. She is a shining light in a world of darkness and denial.

Darla Farmer, Founder and Executive Director, Hope For Three Autism Advocates

There were so many things I enjoyed about the Moms Night. I appreciated Julie being candid about her journey and the laughs. I hadn’t gotten out like that in a long time. When I got home I really reflected on the points she made, and I realized that I have shut myself off for such a long time. It’s time for me to get back in the saddle and go to groups and events. I can support other mothers in their journey, and get support as well.

Tomi K, Autism Mom

She has a real talent for speaking at the event, knowing exactly what moms of kids with special needs want to hear.

Denise Wetzel Executive Director, Families Together

When Julie spoke to our group, we immediately felt like we were talking with a good friend. The type of friend who is warm, genuine, and doesn’t try to sugar coat things. She was able to engage a large range of moms on a topic that either effected them personally or effects someone close to them. Julie was funny, sincere, and uplifting. We would highly recommend her for your next speaking engagement.

I was really excited to have Julie come speak to our MOPS group, but had no idea what we were in for. She was amazing! She left our moms feeling like they are not the only ones facing major parenting struggles and gave us simple biblical tools in facing them. Her calm, sweet, and honest testimony was not only refreshing but empowering.
