What People are Saying About Julia
It’s my pleasure to endorse Julia Roller as a speaker to your local MOPS chapter, women’s group or retreat. She recently spoke to our group of mothers on the topic of “Soul Care: Spiritual Practices for Busy Moms.” We found Julia to be incredibly endearing and relatable as she spoke of her struggle to find God amidst the chaos of motherhood. Because our group is comprised of moms in all stages of their faith journeys, I especially appreciated Julia’s ability to translate time-honored spiritual disciplines into practices that seemed attainable and not at all “churchy.” I’ve since enjoyed reading her book, Mom Seeks God, and hope to have Julia as a speaker to our group again next year!”
Julia is a warm and relatable speaker with practical wisdom to share from her own experiences. She was responsive to the needs of our group, and the moms really connected with what she had to share!
Julia’s talk for our women’s tea was a timely opportunity for us to contemplate loss and the value of loss in our lives. Her vulnerable sharing of herself and family’s losses allowed us to open up and face our own losses with courage and strength from God.
