Julie’s personal anecdotes, practical tips, and step-by-step instructions will encourage you to grow in ways you never imagined possible!

Julie Morris has been helping people grow in their relationship with the Lord for over 20 years. Her books, seminars, and retreats are filled with practical ways to draw closer to Him and experience His transforming power. Julie’s passion is sharing the encouraging message that God changes weaknesses to strengths and misery to ministry.

After a life-long struggle with overeating and the health problems that went with it, in 1982, Julie began discovering how to rely on God’s power to help her lose those harmful extra pounds and keep them off. She delighted in sharing what she learned and became involved in a lay counseling ministry, helping others to grow spiritually and make healthy lifestyle changes.

In 1992, she began writing the Step Forward series, nine books published by Abingdon Press, which share the biblical principles that have changed so many lives – including her own. In 2003, New Hope published the first book in Julie’s "God Help Me" series, From Worry to Worship. The second book of this series, From Worthless to Worthy, is currently in production and due to be released in 2004.

"I cannot say enough concerning how positive and easy it was to work with Julie as we planned the seminar. Julie was very organized and helped me be very organized. Julie's presentation was wonderful. She had a lot of information to share. She used humor, inspirational stories, handouts and many other methods to make her points. She made a very positive impact on the lives of a lot of people."

Rev. Tom Little, Retired Baptist Minister

"I have been an ordained Baptist Minister for 34 years and I found Julie’s teaching related to the subject of worry as the best I’ve studied. If studied and applied properly, the Lord will use it to set you free from the problem of worry and lead you into a life filled with praise, gratitude, and worship of Him!"
