Hello Readers!! Guess What! This week we are taking the chance to introduce ourselves to you in a little more depth than before! So sit back, relax, and enjoy our Team Member Showcase!
~ Defying Shadows Team
What defines you as a person? Who are you?
I am child of the one true King, and as such have a responsibility to make disciples around the world and around the corner as well. I am a wife, mother, writer, and teacher who tries to glorify God in everything I do.
What is your personal motto?
If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. I am very persistent.
Are you an introvert or an extrovert?
Depends on my mood state. When I’m manic, I’m very much the extrovert. When I’m depressed, I hate being around people because I feel I depress them. I have times when I don’t want to leave the house and times when I’d give anything to get OUT of the house. It really does depend.
What is your biggest fear?
Not making a difference in the world and having to answer to God for it.
What is your biggest dream?
To publish a book.
What motivates you?
The love of the Father.
What makes you happy?
Good music on the radio.
If you could go back in time and change one thing, what would it be?
I wouldn’t have had a nervous breakdown after my third child.
Where do you see yourself within five years?
Almost finished with school for my MFA.
What do you do outside of Defying Shadows?
I blog at my personal blog at julielwhitehead.wordpress.com. I raise my three kids and love my husband, I study at Mississippi University for Women, I keep my doctors’ appointments, I lunch with my friends, and I work on my book about bipolar disorder
What does “defying shadows” mean to you?
It means to strike out at fears that have no basis in reality. I am more than a conqueror through Christ Jesus and I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Julie Whitehead currently writes and blogs from Mississippi at her personal blog. She has been a university lecturer, a disability examiner, and a freelance writer. She carries a diagnosis of bipolar disorder and blogs to create awareness and help others understand the disease and its effects.
