It is a pleasure to write a review for Beauty From Ashes, and for its founder Julie who demonstrates incredible energy, determination, and true passion for this significant cause. But this is more than just a cause, these goals represent lives, very young lives of girls and boys who are traumatized emotionally, sexually and spiritually through the abominable practice of human trafficking...our modern day slavery. I have known Julie now for a few years initially as a student at FGCU, then as a guest lecturer in class. Her commitment is solid and sincere and is a significant leader is the treatment, awareness, and community support of these deserving victims. Dr. Jeanette Bevilacqua

I met Julie in 2006 through a Divine set of circumstances. Interestingly enough we both had much in common including working in the same ministry mission field. I have personally watched Julie over the last six years grow leaps and bounds with the ministry that God has entrusted to her. She has sewn years of tears, love, prayers, hard work, devotion, passion and personal education into this ministry. I have personally witnessed lives that have been impacted by her work and her compassion. She is a woman of integrity and can be trusted with what is entrusted to her. I am proud of her work and all of her accomplishments. She is truly unique and is an asset to the Kingdom of God in the earth.
