Hi, I’m Julia!
I currently live in Saskatoon Saskatchewan, Canada and have the honour of being a mother to two beautiful little girls. My youngest has been diagnosed with hypotonia and we are a family waiting for medical answers. She was diagnosed about a month after my Dad passed away in 2019 and life has never been the same. How could it be? Hypotonia is almost always a symptom, not a stand-alone diagnosis, yet every test she takes or gets done leads to more questions and no reasons why. I've had to come to the realization that we may never have answers, and that's okay with me. It honestly is. Because I know that whatever happens, I have seen more miracles through that girl than I ever thought possible in my lifetime. Because I know that God is in control. Because I have tremendous hope and peace that comes through my heavenly Father. Because Jesus.
About a year after the passing of my Dad and the diagnosis of my daughter, my husband and I split ways. He moved out in May of 2020 right as the world was shutting down due to the pandemic we all know too well. It's safe to say I've been living with grief as an unwanted companion for a few years now. I know what it's like to live in pain, to not see the end in sight, to have more and more questions about why things go the way they go and not ever knowing if I'll find answers to any of it.
But I also know what it's like to find joy through the chaos. The hope that it brings and the peace that can calm the biggest of storms. I know what it's like to lay in bed and cry. I know what it's like to deal with extreme PTSD, depression, anxiety. I know what it's like to crave more love, joy, purpose but not know where to start looking. I guess that's why I do what I do. Whether it's speaking about what God has taught me, worshiping our King through music, or coaching someone as they walk through hardships of their own, it is what I am meant to be doing. I find purpose and JOY through all these things.
I'm a pretty open book, at least I try to be. You can find more of my journey on Instagram, or email me and I'll be happy to chat.
I hope you find laughter in your day and joy in your heart. Take a look around, we'll chat soon.
