In this episode of Flourish-Meant, host Tina Yeager sits down with the incredible Julie Seals to discuss her remarkable journey from despair to becoming a hope dealer.

Julie's inspiring story and practical insights are sure to change the lives of listeners. Join us as we dive into Julie's journey and learn how to apply her principles to our own lives.

Julie was a hopeless addict, fugitive, and international drug smuggler facing a life sentence in federal prison. Today, she is a prison evangelist, ordained minister, speaker, wife, mom and grandma! And now - an author. Her journey from despair to becoming a beacon of hope is a powerful testimony that we are excited to share with you.

Julie's life took her to the lowest of lows, from being a hopeless addict and fugitive facing a life sentence in federal prison to living a life filled with purpose, grace, and redemption. As she shared her experiences, we gained insights that deeply moved us, and we can't wait for you to hear her inspirational story.

In this episode, Julie opens up about the moment when she fell to her knees and cried out to God, the doubts she faced during her prison sentence, and the practical ways she found renewed hope amidst it all. Her genuine and honest journey is a shining example of how faith, community support, and a commitment to help others can foster radical transformation.

Julie's practical advice, rooted in faith and empowerment, have the potential to uplift your spirits if you're currently facing despair or to equip you in becoming a hope dealer in your own community.
