Tina Rains and Dr. Juli Slattery | From Dream to Calling
Masterpiece Women welcomes Dr. Juli Slattery!
Dr. Juli Slattery is a clinical psychologist, author, speaker, and the president/co-founder of Authentic Intimacy. In this blog, she shares the difference between a dream and a calling. There is a distinct difference between the two but our mind often gets blurry. The purpose of life is sometimes different from our dreams. When Juli pushed toward her calling, she was living her dream job. Oftentimes we have to give up our dream to pursue God's calling, to pursue God's purpose in our lives.
(From 2008-2012, Dr. Slattery served at Focus on the Family writing, teaching, and co-hosting the Focus on the Family Broadcast. In 2012, she left Focus on the Family to start Authentic Intimacy, a ministry devoted to reclaiming God’s design for sexuality. In 2020, Juli launched SexualDiscipleship.com, a platform designed to help Christian leaders navigate sexual issues and questions with gospel-centered truth.)
In this podcast, we will have an insight into when Juli experienced struggle and failure when she started her ministry. She learned to retreat, to step back, and to trust God more.
As a leader, Juli learned that she should have a vision and have the confidence to implement what's necessary to obtain the vision God gave her.
For Juli, authenticity is to let yourself make mistakes and never become a people pleaser.
Dr. Juli earned her college degree at Wheaton College, an MA in psychology from Biola University, and an MS and a Doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology from Florida Institute of Technology.
Juli is the author of twelve books and host of the weekly podcast “Java with Juli.” Juli and her husband Mike are the parents of 3 sons; they live in Akron, Ohio.
