    #424: A 54-Year Friendship That Broke Through Cross-Cultural Barriers

    In the South, in the late 60s, these men weren’t supposed to be friends. Yet, with Jesus as their common ground, they began to seal up tiny little cracks in the racial divide around them. What if we all did that? Grab your Java. Hear their story.

    #263: Experiencing Sexual Pleasure, Part 2

    In part two of this conversation, you'll hear about the other two legs of the "sexual desire triangle" and go from getting your body ready, to getting your emotions ready! Nurturing an emotional connection with your man (talking, date nights, taking a “sexcation”) will create intimacy that spills over into the bedroom.

Excellent, for me personally and me as a counselor!

This is my favorite podcast! Everyone is sexually broken and few are talking about the solution in a God-honoring way. Juli normalizes our struggles and points listeners to Christ and to healing. I refer clients and friends to this podcast frequently!

Vital info for the people of God

I cannot get enough of these podcasts. I’ve been involved for over 20 years in women’s ministry, in one way or another. I’m so thankful for the information taught and I love sharing this as a resource to everyone. Thank you Juli for how you handle often difficult topics with integrity, sincerity, honesty, and in a biblically accurate manner.

Life changing

That’s not an overstatement. This podcast has changed almost every part of my life. Juli has helped me understand myself and who I am because of Jesus, while opening my eyes to the original design for my marriage and the potential it has. I’ve been listing to Java with Juli for over 5 years and it just gets better. Because of all that I’ve learned through this podcast and its resources, God has opened the door for me to share the wonderful news of a freeing intimate understanding of sexual wholeness as God designed it with so many!

Most importantly, this podcast has helped heal my marriage. There aren’t enough spaces in this little box to tell of the wonders we’ve experienced though truly understanding God’s design for marriage and His pleasure in it.
All I keep saying is, “ I wish we knew this stuff sooner.”

Thank you!
