Call her a 21st century Erma Bombeck with a pleasantly skewed twist!
Her quirky style, hilarious delivery, and authentic confessions of her own struggles and defeats have made Julie Barnhill a highly popular keynote speaker and break-out session leader.
International speaking has taken Julie to four continents and placed her before audiences in Beijing, China; Budapest and Debrencen, Hungary; Vienna, Austra; Wiesbaden, Germany; London, England; and Johannesburg, South Africa.
Nationally Julie Barnhill has spoken to men and women in over twenty-five states (she's still waiting for that invite to Hawaii!) and packs her schedule as full as possible as she enjoys nothing more than making audiences laugh so hard they snort and think in the process.
Her first book, She's Gonna Blow! Real Help for Moms Dealing with Anger (Harvest House Publishers, 2001), is a perfect example of her speaking style condensed into book format. With sales topping 110,000 copies since its release, readers have responded to Julie Barnhill's candid 'been there' confessions of anger toward her children, struggles with depression, and the very real hope for lasting change available to mothers everywhere.
Five other successful titles: Til Debt Do Us Part (Harvest House Publishers), Scandalous Grace, Radical Forgiveness, and Exquisite Hope, (Tyndale House Publishing), solidified Julie's presence in both faith and mainstream marketplaces.
Julie Barnhill's seventh book, One Tough Mother (Fleming H. Revell) releases Fall 2007 and will be complimented with a four giftable book series titled, Even Tough Mothers Deal with...Depression, Communication, Stress, and Anger.
Millions of viewers saw Julie Barnhill as a featured guest on Oprah, October 2002. The program, Moms Who Lose Control, garnered such a response as to warrant its re-airing on December 20th of the same year as well as the Spring of 2003. International, national and syndicated guest spots also include: The Other Half with host Dick Clark; NBC's "PowerLunch;" CNN World News; FOX-4 TV Fort Worth, TX; At Home Live!; Master Control; 100 Huntley Street; and teaching video production with Alpha International in London, England.
Radio appearances include a two-day interview which aired March 17-18th, 2003, with Focus on the Family legend, Dr. James Dobson. Audiences responded to Julie Barnhill's real and relevant humor and vulnerability and merited its re-airing as part of the 2003 "Best of the Best" programming schedule.
A three-day interview with Dr. Dobson aired March 19th, 20th, and 21st, of 2007 and showcased once again Julie Barnhills's one-of-a-kind ability to speak aloud the secret thoughts and struggles women desperately long to be free from.
