JulieLavenderheadshot2Julie loves making memories with her family that includes her high-school and college sweetheart, David, four adult children, one son-in-love, and one precious 18-month-old grandson. Julie is a journalist, author, and former homeschooling mom of twenty-five years who holds a Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education.

Julie is excited that her parenting book, 365 Ways to Love Your Child: Turning Little Moments into Lasting Memoriespublished by Revell, releases in October of this year. Julie has also co-authored two devotionals in the last six months with Michelle Cox; both were published by BroadStreet.

She is a freelance stringer for the Statesboro Herald Newspaper, and her work is included in various magazines, like Guideposts and Focus on the Family’s Clubhouse Magazine, and on several parenting and homeschooling blogs.

Julie would love connections on her Facebook page or author page, and she would love even more if you’d join the conversation about showing love to a child on her Facebook Group, 365 Ways to Love Your Child (https://www.facebook.com/groups/607967430049843/).
