Julie Barnhill is the author of seven books for women, including the best-selling title, She's Gonna Blow! Real Help for Moms Dealing with Anger. She has been a featured guest on Oprah, CNN, and NBC's The Other Half and has been heard by millions on radio. Additionally, Julie’s international speaking engagements have allowed her to speak before audiences in South Africa, China, Austria, Germany, Hungary, Great Britain and tens of thousands each year nationally.
As the “refreshingly relevant” voice of authentic living for women, Julie is armed with a razor-sharp acerbic wit dedicated to proclaiming the sublime, sentimental and sometimes subversive truths of life, home and family. Coupled with a disarmingly charming self-deprecating sense of humor, she unapologetically sets herself apart as author, spokesperson, national/international speaker, popular media guest and mothering expert.
Her uncanny ability to both inspire and challenge audiences to action and change can be attributed to her consistently authentic presentation regarding who she is, where she’s been, and what she’s learned along the way. Julie tackles subjects from the sublime (such as learning to embrace your cellulite) to the very serious and provocative (motherhood, anger and abuse) and successfully melds wit and humor with bold expert directives.
Time and time again, Julie has proven she can extract pertinent, newsworthy material, no matter the time frame she's allowed. Her many speaking topics include “One Tough Mother”, a commentary on motherhood; “She’s Gonna Blow”, an examination of anger issues in parenting; “Motherhood and Guilt”, “Radical Forgiveness”, “Stretch Woman, Stretch”, a practical encouragement to women to grow deeper in faith; and “Scandalous Grace”, an expose of God’s extreme and outrageous grace toward women.
"Our women loved Julie! They appreciated herhonesty, humor, experiences, practical advice, personal touch and the Scripture she used. Many were challenged in their faith and refreshed by the assurance of God's forgiveness and grace." - Conference Planner, Clearwater Lodge Women's Conference
