About Julie Thomas

Julie holds a doctorate degree in Journalism and Information Sciences from the University of North Texas, and also worked prior to that as a journalist. Her passion for writing has accompanied her since childhood, envisioning a career in journalism. This dream of a career in journalism gave way at the cusp of graduation because she had already begun her battle with postpartum depression. All this while mothering a newborn and a 2-yr-old and fast approaching health issues. In light of her own battle with depression, behind the veil of shame and fear, she is now passionate about stripping that veil and bringing awareness in the church and beyond, about the challenges posed by mental illness. She believes no one should have to suffer this malady alone. She currently leads a women's group at her church in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, where she resides with her husband and two sons.
