Clinical psychologist and Christian author Dr. Juli Slattery doesn’t like small talk. In this weekly podcast, she dives into the “taboo” questions Christians are afraid to ask—or don’t know who to ask—about sexuality, intimacy, marriage, singleness, gender, sexual addiction, and more. Every episode is an open invitation to join Juli “at the table” for a deeper look at the good, the hard, the healing, and the holy in God’s design for sexuality.
#361: Hey Momma! Learn How To Share the "Birds & Bees" with Your "Littles"
We know. It’s hard to imagine talking to your sweet three or four-year-old about sex. And here’s the thing: you don’t have to. What you can, nay, should do is have age-appropriate conversations about body parts, boys and girls, and how you see God’s design in nature in things like seeds and eggs. These small, everyday conversations lay an important foundation for bigger conversations later on. You've got this, Momma! You don’t need to be afraid to share God’s design for sexuality with your young children. We’re here to help – grab your Java and join us!

#360: Feeling Fearful? The Right Kind of Fear Leads to Bravery

In this episode, you'll hear how knowing who God is, and His power to work in your life, is where real courage comes from. Grab your Java and join us!

Bonus! #166: We Are All Sexually Broken
Do you believe that only people who watch pornography, use sex to feel loved, or cheat on their spouses are sexually broken? Church culture has long approached sexuality by dividing us into two categories: sexually broken or sexually pure. In this conversation, Juli & Hannah present a different approach.
"We're all sinners. None of us are righteous, not one. And apart from the redemption of Christ and the daily ministry of the Holy Spirit in our lives, we can never achieve righteousness. Why can't we apply that to sexuality?" Juli Slattery

#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 you can play in 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.

Okay! There are not a whole lot of podcasts that stick around in my library but this one...she’s here to stay!!
I love listening to Julie work through some hard or confusing topics with her guests. She is easy to listen to and makes all topics approachable. You feel like you are just chilling with her and getting to chat about life.
She brings great points to conversation and keeps Scripture at the center of it all. It’s encouraging yet also thought provoking.
Both my husband and I LOVE Julie and all her work and even how she has poured into our marriage with her work.
If you get a chance get books are a great tool as well that we love!
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!
