J.Lo's Daughter Is Not For Sale - Yet.
As a society, we have prioritized a woman’s value. Yes, women can be business owners, candidates for political office, judges, doctors, peacemakers. But they will always be objects of desire FIRST. And if their butts don’t shine like the surface of a golden calf, they aren’t worthy of adoration.
Julie Christian has four children, ages 10,11, 19 and 29. She is married to the man of her dreams, Mike Christian, and she writes from her home in southwest Florida.
Julie has completed two novels, Sugar Machine, and Her Father’s Ocean.
She is president for her local Word Weavers chapter, and she also manages the Twitter feed for @wordweaversinternational.
She works part-time for a local public relations firm and often imagines herself as Bridget Jones, "fannying about the press releases," in Hugh Grant's voice.
In her spare time, she enjoys gardening at her home, which she lovingly calls “The Book Farm,” and sailing with her family on their West Wight Potter 19.
Until December, 2019, she wrote with her partner, Tolstoy, a French Bulldog rescue who passed away. She now volunteers her home to other French Bulldogs who need rescue and harbor hidden literary talent.
Julie and Mike co-authored a non-fiction work, Island in the Bubble. Julie's work will also be published in a 30 Day Devotional titled Abba's Heart (anticipated release Spring of 2020). Her story will also be highlighted in a chapter of Strength of a Woman: Why You Are Proverbs 31, by Lauren Crews.
My Breast Cancer Scare: Because having people you love die isn’t enough drama for one year, you have to worry about dying of cancer yourself to make things interesting.
Two days later, I received a call that the tests were not normal. The radiologist had detected a nodule, or something, I can’t remember the term, in one of my breasts. I’ll admit, after the first few words of the phone call, I don’t recall hearing much else. I was scheduled for more tests, and life went on as usual.
