Julie Richmond found inspiration and motivation through God's amazing grace after the death of her best friend. Through her grief journey, she finally realized her incredible light within. Realizing that others don't always know that light is in them, too, Julie set out to share her experiences so that everyone might understand.

While describing herself as a 'work in progress', Julie wakes each day determined not to let fear keep her from living her life fully and boldly, pursuing her dreams, and loving each and every one of God's incredible creations.

Julie currently lives in the Midwest with her husband, three children, and granddaughter. She's been a teacher for almost 25 years (and is sure that means she started teaching at the age of 12
