Speaking

My ministry is for those who’ve been imprisoned by The Fear Monster and long to be set free.

For years, The Fear Monster hounded me.

What if my best isn’t good enough? What will people think? What if I’m not the perfect mother? (Ha!) What if I don’t have perfect children? (Haha!) What if I’m really not in control? What if? What if? What if? 

Speaking topics include:

  • Fear, Pride, and Control–The Three Wicked Stepsisters
  • Clinical Depression–How Four Words Brought Healing
  • Hope for Mamas of Prodigals
  • Porch Parties–How Ten Minutes a Day Rekindled our Marriage
  • Grace and Prayers for Beloved Addicts
  • My Surrender Story
  • How Does Your Garden Grow? On Being a Wife and Mama
  • For Teenage Girls–You Are Precious in His Sight

When we share our secrets, their power over us is broken.

Teenage girls are some of my favorite people–especially the rebellious ones.

My husband and I have a porch party every morning–just the two of us.

Porch Parties–how ten minutes a day rekindled our marriage.

I have a tender place in my heart for mamas who’ve lost babies. I’ve been there.

Quotes from previous churches:

“I thank God for the ministry of Julie Garmon. Her openness and transparency in sharing her life experiences were moving and encouraging. Our ladies were blessed tremendously, and I would highly recommend her to speak at any ladies’ gathering.” Cheryl Waters, Director of Women’s Ministry, Grace Baptist Church

“Julie, what a pleasure it was having you speak at our Mother’s Day Luncheon. Your testimony is powerful and inspiring. Many of our ladies, from the very young to the very old, have told me what a blessing you were to them. Even my 9-year-old granddaughter said, “Gigi, Jesus has really helped that lady.” She didn’t understand everything, but she got the message just the same. Gerry McKinney, Events Coordinator, Mt Carmel Christian Church Women’s Ministry

“Julie was amazing! She was so honest and real–and brought such great creativity into her presentation! So very prepared, she kept our group totally engaged–through tears and laughter. She blended our hearts together that night!” Leigh Anne Day, Director of Women’s Ministry, Celebration Church
