Julie Landreth has a passion for healthy and thriving relationships–especially marriages. She is a speaker and wife coach who loves sharing her passion for prayer and how to cultivate a thriving marriage. She leads a growing number of women in San Jose, CA through her weekly WifeLab curriculum: Loving Well, The Art of Praying for Your Husband. Julie and her husband are celebrating 15 years of cultivating a marriage filled with intentional love. Their secret? A date night every Friday. In addition to speaking, writing, and teaching, Julie is also a freelance photographer and designer.
IF YOU HAVE EVER STRUGGLED JUST TO BE BRAVE, THIS WAS THE EPISODE FOR YOU.
This conversation with Julie resulted from her reaching out to encourage me last week. I was struggling to feel courageous as I worked on my fear of failure episode, and God used her to speak truth to me. At the same time, she volunteered to just “jump in” the next time I needed a last-minute interview.
Julie also blesses us with a few lessons she’s learned by praying for her husband and seeking his good even when she was struggling with negative feelings about their relationship. I first interviewed Julie back in April 2017, shortly after she created her WifeLab curriculum. Now, 18 months later, she relates some of the struggles regarding public speaking opportunities, the fears that still linger, and how she turns them back to the Lord and continues to step forward.
We also talk about what confession and repentance has to do with pursuing your dream in the face of fear.
If you’re still trying to find your way to being brave (or if your marriage is struggling), I pray you’ll find some hope and encouragement in this interview.
