Hey there! Thanks for checking out our little acreage on the inter webs.
I’m Julia Grace(aka Julie) and I’m on a mission. I want to free people from the fear and shame that keeps us all from living whole-hearted lives. I use ‘whole-hearted’ because that is how Brené Brown refers to people who seem to have weathered life’s storms and came out on the other side with their heart intact. Brené is one of a handful of incredibly transformative authors that I’ve discovered on my journey (we’ll be talking more about her on the blog).
You see, I spent the greater part of 3 decades with secrets and shame that no one could see, and no one knew. From the outside I looked like I’d done pretty well in life, but on the inside I felt like a fraud. Through a lot of hard work and introspection, I finally conquered those demons and began to stand in my own truth. To my utter surprise, I found what I thought would kill me set me on a path to a freedom I didn’t know was possible.
So now I’m living a life that is radically different than I’ve ever lived before – and to be honest – I’ve no idea what I’m doing. We’re changing career paths, downsizing our home, and doing life completely different than ever before. All my life I thought I was on a well-defined path: College degree, good corporate job, house, car, kids, and then a hopefully comfortable retirement. But we are throwing the blueprint out the window and living a daily adventure where our goals are: be true to who are called to be, take care of our needs, help other’s do the same. Really! So much simpler, so much more fulfilling, so insanely undefined!
I’m a mom to two amazing kids, two delightful dogs, and a cat – and I’m married to the world’s most patient man. I’m excited you are here and I can’t wait to see what’s next!
