With over 15 years experience, Julia has traveled nationally and internationally to teach the gospel. Connecting the dots from Genesis to Revelation, she believes that the Word of God can and should be understood in great depth by every believer. She believes that we are all called to, “Seek the Word as though it were silver or gold. Open up a hearing heart to the Spirit of God, and walk worthy of the calling of Christ!”
Her unique combination of humor, touchable story-telling style and layered depth creates an unforgettable experience of love, laughter and truth. She encourages hard questions, embraces doubt, pain and brokenness with open arms, and believes God is big enough to handle all that and much, much, more.
Julia has been married for 16 years to her Army and now Coast Guard Pilot. Together they have 3 kids, a Golden-doodle named Murphy and two Guinea Pigs named Georgy and Booster. Moving 24 times to three different countries and 11 different states with the military, makes her appreciate the beauty of culture and life all around the world, but at the end of the day she still sings, Sweet Home Alabama which reminds her that her roots are deep in the South.
Julia holds an undergraduate degree in Philosophy and Psychology and has worked as a counselor with a M.S. in Counseling Psychology. She works a novelist and a free-lance writer from home because words make a difference in this world. She also teaches the Word of God weekly on her YouTube channel at Julia J. Gibbs. Her work has been published in the award-winning book, Stories Around the Table Laughter, Wisdom, and Strength in Military Life, several magazines such as Military Spouse Magazine, Alabama Living, newspapers and Christian groups such as Planting Roots and PWOC.
