Encourage with Love, Passion and Enthusiasm


Julie L. Williams

It’s my mission to Love God and Love People by encouraging them with love, passion and enthusiasm.

One of the biggest revelations I have found along my journey of faith is that Passionate Encouragement & Prayer Uplifts People.  Joy, overwhelming joy, is the gift that is received in return.  That’s where the term PEP UP for Joy came from.

I have discovered that the more intentional I am about uplifting others, the more joy I experience in my life.  If it works for me, it just might be interesting or helpful to you too.  I try to be real with my words and share my good times as well as the struggles.   May each and every day be a great learning experience.

I wear a lot of hats and fill many roles.  I am a follower of Christ.  I am a woman.  I am a wife.  I am a mother of two children, a son and a daughter.  I have good habits I try to build on and bad habits that I toil to improve.  I have worked inside the home and outside the home.  I serve and volunteer.  I succeed and I fail.  I write.  I speak.  I dream.  I pray.

This blog is simply a place for me to share my journey and experiences.  I hope and pray that perhaps through it, you will find some encouragement.

I am so grateful for each person who reads my humble words.  I pray they are filled with compassion, love and that they may resonate with God’s Word.
