Catch a Falling Dream, signature concert
The format of this one-hour program is five songs, four of my originals and one cover, interspersed with my life stories.
Writing this program in 2018 (thus the blonde locks ;) was a therapeutic labor of love. I was comforted to see how God wove the pieces of my life together into His perfect tapestry.
I've found that through everything in my life, God has worked out His purpose for my good and His glory! I would be honored to inspire you and your group to know that same truth!
Catch a Falling Dream is a one-woman program. Using original songs and inspirational speaking with a dose of humor, Julie takes you on a journey that includes witnessing a friend’s tragic death, a breast cancer diagnosis and life long struggle with endometriosis.
These trials tested Julie’s faith in God and made her doubt her talent and purpose. Music helped her work through despair and find her voice again.
Julie prays that her stories and songs will inspire people to cling to and trust God through their own valleys. He has a plan for everyone, no matter how bleak circumstances look. Her experience shows that surrendering ourselves to His plan can help us catch our dreams.
Reach out to schedule a performance for your organization, church, bible study, special event, retreat, or in-home concert.
"I was blessed to hear Julie’s program, "Catch a Falling Dream" at a women’s Bible study. Julie’s singer-songwriter style and engaging voice drew me into the journey of her life as she weaved it together through song. What an inspirational story of how life can bring great challenge, heartache and trials, but how Julie overcame fear and obstacles with the strength of special people and the healing grace of God. What a beautiful, hope-giving performance; a special light of encouragement in these unprecedented times of uncertainty and fear."

"Going to Red Lobster after your breast cancer diagnosis, you must have an awesome husband. Memorable how you create songs from your circumstances, like 'Ho Hum Road'. Thank you for the sense of humor woven in, an hour was too short! Agree about giving up our dreams so God can fill us up with His desires. He can't fill us if we don't make room!"
