About Julia

Welcome! I'm so glad you stopped by. My name is Julia. I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a teacher, and most recently, a writer. Above all, I am a daughter of the King.

The Hammer

Smashing hammer, Shattered heart Blow by blow, Torn apart. “Fat,” the hammer falls. “Ugly,” the hammer falls. “Stupid,” the hammer falls. “Worthless,” the hammer falls. Shattering blows, Bit by bit On a heart That turns to stone.
