    #359: How To Help Women Speak Out Against Sexual Harassment

    Tiffany Bluhm wishes this wasn’t her story to tell. Like most victims or bystanders of sexual harassment, she had everything to lose by telling the truth. (Spoiler alert: She did it anyway!)  Join Juli and Tiffany for a conversation about the role we all play in exposing (or not exposing) sexual harassment. You’ll hear why harassment is something that women don’t have to tolerate and why, of all the voices raised against it, Christian voices should be the loudest.

Your sex life and your spiritual life have more in common than you think!

    #357: Emotional Safety: What It Is and Why You Need It

    #357: Emotional Safety: What It Is and Why You Need It

    What is emotional safety? Look at it this way: an emotionally unsafe relationship is a place where you can’t be yourself. You’re walking on eggshells. You can’t share your emotions because when you do, they’re going to set off an explosive or guilt-inducing response from the friend, parent, spouse, or boss you’re talking to.  In this episode, Dr. Joshua Straub shares what makes you an emotionally safe person. Are you willing to press into and sit with the emotions of another person, even when it’s uncomfortable? It takes work, but the payoff is authentic intimacy.  Grab your Java and join us!

    #356: Sex & the City of God (What Life Looks Like When We Love God First)

    That longing you have to be fully known? God put it there. It’s meant to draw you into intimacy with Him.  Yet, we try to fill it with people (or things) who can never know us completely. In this episode, Juli talks with Carolyn Weber, author of "Sex and the City of God," about what life looks like when we choose to love God first.

Lifechanging

Java with Juli has been life-changing in the way I view biblical sexuality and issues I face in my marriage and parenting. I appreciate the wide variety of topics addressed and Juli’s “truth with love” approach. The discussion of sexuality is a minefield in today’s culture, and Juli deals with each topic with such grace. Seriously, this podcast has been such a gift and blessing. Thank you Juli and AI team!

Love Raw & Real

Juli does such a great job on addressing the hard conversations that no one “likes” to think about! But does so in a way of love and viewing all perspectives. I have learned so much from her and her guests and love hearing the real and raw conversations she facilitates!
