Julia had a difficult childhood growing up in a home with her father who struggled with drugs and her mom who had to keep everything together. As an adult, Julia felt shame about her dad, and did things to win approval from others. Julia was brought up in the Catholic church and went through the motions of going to church. Her eyes were completely opened to the truth of the gospel when she learned that works would not get her into heaven. She also discovered she was lacking a personal relationship with Jesus. Julia accepted Jesus’ work on the cross to make her right with God, and now she knows she will get to heaven because of what He has done.
